  1. double tap to lock screen(timeout so you can use fingerprint to unlock) on lg g5 does not lock just makes the screen go black.

    when I set double tap to lock for a timeout so that I can use the fingerprint to unlock, the screen just goes black. you can touch the screen and hit the home button and get back into the device without having to use fingerprints out a pin. it never actually locks. this is on an LG G5

      • launcher unlock

        When I lock the screen, but with a finger on the screen(for grip) it results in opening the homescreen editor menu where you can place widgets when I unlock the phone. So basically everytime I unlock I have to close the edit screen.

              • dropping apps from home and folders.

                sometimes, when apps are updated, they are dropped from the home screen or folders. most recent example - the weather channel got updated and the icon disappeared from the home screen app folder. my home screen was locked.

                  • I can't no longer have a Bing picture of the day as my lockscreen picture ONLY (keeping my personal homescreen from changing)

                    The latest version of the beta doesn't allow me to have a Picture of the Day to apply ONLY on my lockscreen, so my homescreen keeps using a my personal wallpaper.

                            • When I click home button it goes to frequently used applications instead of default home screen. This happened after the latest update.

                              While there it gets stuck or unresponsive until I restart the phone. This happened after the recent update.

                                • Blank home Screen

                                  home screen appears blank many times whenever quitting apps and returning returning to the home screen.
                                  phone is responsive though and works
                                  but the icons on the home screen are gone.
                                  only way to bring 'em back is restarting!

                                      • Lock screen shortcut

                                        On my locked screen (GS6), I now have a shortcut for a Sonos remote control. I can't figure out how to stop it from appearing. I've even tried deleting my Sonos app, but that didn't work. Any help is appreciated.
