  1. Essential Phone, Buttons at top of screen

    MS Launcher - On my Essential Phone I cannot interact with the options of the top of certain pages, as the Android notification bar overlaps these options. For example, I cannot tap on the Settings button in the top-right corner of the weather widget because my time and battery status icons overlap it.

  7. Status bar fonts change color to white after swiping to pull down the launcher's Search function.

    Font color changes to white in status bar after swiping down to call the launcher's search function. Big problem for me because I use a white wallpaper.

  18. Graphical error when longpressing an icon to show shortcuts

    The status bar and the navigation bar don't become darker as the central part of the background does when longpressing an app's icon to show its shortcuts. This is not very good to see

  19. status bar text size

    You should be able to make text in status bar larger so it is easier to see, esp as you get older and your eyesight deteriorates, or if your eyesight isn't good, without changing all text size. The 4G/H+ text is tiny, if it were the same as the battery% text it would be much better.
