              • Selected circle icons but some are still squares.

                I have selected circle icon shapes but there are still many icons in the app drawer and on my home screen showing squares.

                        • S8/S9 aspect ratio compatibility for icon cluster

                          There is always a gap between the bottom of the home screen icon cluster and the quick launcher icons that remain at the bottom of the screen. I want to be able to put additional icons in there but I can't. seems to be to do with the aspect ratio of the S8/S9 as the problem did not affect the s7
