    The folder icons a incredibly small and you need a magnifying glass to see what the icons are. Definitely not good accessibility for older people.

    The slide up from bottom no longer brings up the Google search.

    The new reviews on Google Play after this update are 90% negative..Please chime in if you agree.

    I'm not terribly happy with it either. I don't like how folders open a full screen view of icons, makes it so you can't reach the stuff on the left with your thumb easily, which is why all my stuff was in folders along the right side of the screen in the first place. The slide up app drawer is ok tho, IMO. I don't really use the google assistant much anyway.

    There are plenty of threads open regarding this launcher update. No need to open a new one.

    1. It's based on Pixel, not Oreo.
    2. You can change the size and style of the icons or even download new ones from the Play Store. Long press your home screen and go to settings.
    3. If you want to go back to the old look, go to settings, apps, OnePlus launcher, 3 dots in the upper right corner, uninstall updates.
    4. Use the search before creating new threads. Or just read the forum because every single thread is about the same thing.

    4. Which clearly shows how many people are upset about the update and there should be an option to switch between launcher styles.

    I know I've uninstalled the updates to get the button back and couldn't be happier. I'm all for giving change a chance, but only when it makes sense to make that change and this doesn't make sense it's just a style a Dev preferred. Fortunately everyone's preferences are so how about we.live up to the OnePlus slogan and #NeverSettle for a change a lot of people didn't want.

    Read specs BEFORE upgrading.
    If you're acting inconsiderate, only blame yourself.
    Use search engine.
    Don't open duplicate threads.
