Xperia Home Beta adds option to change grid size (10.2.A.2.10)

xperia-home-10-2-a-2-10_2Sony has updated the Xperia Home Beta to build number 10.2.A.2.10, adding a much-requested feature in the form of a grid-size option. The latest launcher allows you to select different grid sizes for your home screen including 3×4, 4×4, 4×5 and 5×5.

The new launcher now dynamically adapts the icon size, depending on the grid size chosen. This means that you can no longer manually change the size of icons, although you could just use an icon pack with smaller icons. Sony says that only an “extremely small percentage” actually bothered to change icon sizes. If you want to try the new launcher, head over to the Google+ Xperia Home Beta page to sign-up for updates.

    The app drawer seems to be weirdly different on its search bar and icons placing, comparing to older version of the launcher I had.

    But seems to work pretty great on my Xperia Z3, though.

    Nice update

  • Shehab Skull

  • Dilesh Perera

    changing the grid size is good. but after changing the grid size some widgets looks small/ and out of size

  • Shehab Skull

    can’t u resize theme manually ? by holding your finger on a widget and swipe the scroller

  • Dilesh Perera

    cant

    Do you know if it also comes with Google Now in the left panel?

  • jxPerience

    What about hide unnecessary apps? We need hide option, when they are going to implement that?

    Disabled apps you don’t need if u can’t uninstall it aka bloatware

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    And Z2 also!

  • Hyung-Woo Jung

    That’s been available for a while, and it’s included in this version as well.

    Loving the 5×5 grid size on my Z5 Compact. Always thought this phone could accommodate another row of icons, and that’s indeed the case for me!

    This home screen update lost Sony style

  • This isn’t an official Xperia Blog… I don’t think Sony will ever give us that kind of update… Let’s wait. As in previous post, the priority is Android 7.1.1

  • iia3ezu

    How about 3×3 for those people with poor eyesight?

    Also, for app icons with long names, I would like to see marquee scrolling instead of truncation with a … at the end. Especially names written in non-English double-byte characters.

    Hello Sony
    Nougat release for xperia x series are the dates passed and dates nearing z5 series and z3+ .
    How u manage?
    Update the latest dates of nougat release

  • SonyMan

    Although I love this update I think we should get back the icon size option. Despite a tiny amount of people bothered to changed the size, as Sony mentioned, I hate how small icons look now on stock 4×5 grid on Z5P. My 5.5″ screen demands bug icons option back…it really looks hideous how much gap exists between icons…nice and welcome update though.

  • Sky

    why the install take so long time

  • andres

    too bad you need root permition for that. but, there is no root for XA Ultra :-(

  • andres

  • kurakuradisco

    The development for midranger xperia is so slow right now… Too bad.. I remember back then there is so many custom roms and root methods for midranger xperia, even Xperia E3 got so much love in XDA Development..

  • andres

    i miss those days. those were good old ROOT days

  • andres

    but you can still change the icon size and font size, right?

  • andres

    i installed this new home ver, but i really didint like it because you cant re-size icons, so i have to uninstall the home app. first, you have do DISABLE it, then, re-boot your phone. But, you have to get your widgets on screen again because it removes all of your widgets, wallpapers, themes.

  • andres

    i have let it run for about 3 min. BUT, because it takes to long, i “cancel” de instalation hitting the HOME button. Anyway, the home app got installed. Dont know why it takes too long, even if the installation finishes.
