    As a new person to Android, I find the customisation very useful. However, I understand that OnePlus wants to create an OS that is simple and intuitive, and it's great that I don't have to download a whole bunch of extra launchers or customising apps. One complaint I have is that there is no central place for all the phone's settings.

    For example, if I want to change the home screen and app drawer settings, I have to long-press on the home screen and select a button. However none of these settings appear in the Settings app. Also, if I want to change the Home button behaviour, it doesn't appear in the Home Settings area, I have to go to the main Settings app. It's a bit confusing.

    One extra request, can we have the option to change the text size of the home screen icons, separate to the overall system setting? When enlarging the system-wide text, the home screen icon text gets too big and most of the titles are cut-off eg 'WhatsApp' is 'WhatsA...'

    that's a great suggestion, I hope Google or OnePlus looks into this and try to add all settings at one place.

    as far as the size of icons on home and app drawer goes, you can download a third-party launcher which allows you to do that.

    The feedback function is useless. There are very limited character limits to the text fields, so providing any detailed or useful feedback isn't possible

    Regardless, that's the place to give feedback and suggestions if you want any chance at visibility.

    You can modify the homescreen layout including icon sizes.

    Press and hold background of home screen >>
    Pick home settings >>
    Pick home screen layout >>
    Change options

    This is true on the most recent version of OnePlus 5T OS. I don't know if this has been around for a while or is new.

    I wish we had an option to make the icon label text independenly fit correctly. Instead of the dot dot.dot..
