  1. 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.

  4. status bar

    I can't hit 'apply' or anything else at the top of any screen in the launcher settings because it overlaps my status bar.

  10. because if these new icons on the bottom of the screen will not go away, I'm not able to use apps where their interface seems to hide behind

    I'm very unhappy, most apps I use interface seems to be hiding behind the new icons on the bottom of my screen. i need them to go away, as soon as possible.

  12. 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.

  15. screen notch

    Phones with edge to edge screen with a notch (i.e. the essential phone) experience some overlap with the top of the launcher and the status bar at times.
