    the new folder view is not too functional, it does not use the entire screen space and needs to be scrolled down unnecessarily when more apps/icons can be shown in one screen.

    I would like to know how this can be reverted if any settings or is there any other version of the default launcher which can be used I do not want to use any third party launchers.

    so far I am happy with OP3 but if this can't be done it will be a good reason for me to buy a new phone(looking forward for the new pixel)

    the launcher doesn't have to keep you from enjoying your phone, just get Nova launcher and it becomes basically identical to the old op launcher minus shelf

    yep this new op launcher is horrible as soon as it was released in beta I switched to Nova launcher and unless op decides to change it back to a stock Android style I'll never use the op launcher again. plus it's ugly as hell with square folders like seriously square folders wtf? c'mon OnePlus get with the program.

    They will add more functionality to the same. (I am on beta)
    You can then jump from folder to folder directly (and sequentially) by swiping left or right.

    thanks for the info, also jumping from folder to folder is good but hopefully the change the layout too much spacing between icons causes it go beyond one screen even if not needed. maybe they can put a 4x4 or even 5x5 grid for the icons.

    They still have the 3*3 folder view in my phone, let's see they might give us an update regarding the same.

    Why do you have 3 icon columns? Set it to 5 and be done with it.

    the icons grid in discussion is inside a folder not the home screens.
