  6. Fingerprint

    Fingerprint has a lot of misses when trying to unluck. Default locker workes as intended.

  8. App drawer causes lag

    Opening the app drawer incurs momentary lag/stutter on my Galaxy S8.

    This is a decently powerful phone and we're talking about something as basic as an app drawer so this really shouldn't happen.

    It is honestly a big gripe I have with the launcher. The stock launcher (despite all its flaws) is MUCH smoother.

  14. Swipe up stops, then Launcher reverts to original launcher. Easily repeatable.

    Easily repeatable. Swipe up feature to reveal running apps stopped working. So tap any app to enter it. Then swipe up to reveal all apps. If from here I clear all running apps, when taken back to home screen, it reverts back to Google's stock launcher. Tap any app to enter it, escape back to home and MS Launcher is back as default.

    I have Google Pixel 3a with latest OS and patches. All software actually are on latest versions. Yes, rebooting phone doesn't resolve. Just started happening a couple of days ago.

  16. Microsoft Launcher and Google Play Services draining my battery in the background

    Noticed that my phone was getting hot and battery was draining quickly. Checked Battery Usage report in settings and observed conspicuous nearly constant background usage by Microsoft Launcher, nearly perfectly correlated with similar background usage by Google Play Services. Rebooted and the problem has gone away for now...

  18. more power usage is the problem..but the devolepment of app is good..some times feeling slow or stuck ..

    performance is low and battery usage is high... but is a good app...some times it takes long time to lauch after an other app is closed...I know it is automatically closing for good user interface..but takes time to launch...in low end phones
