Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Change Home Screen Mode

Home screen is one of the most customizable part in the Samsung Galaxy SIV. In the first time, there are five Home screens displayed in this phone, but if they're not enough for you, you're allowed to add them up to seven. In another case, you're also allowed to re-arrange the Home screen position as well as deleting unused Home screen if you're tight with the RAM use issue.

By default, the Home screen in your phone are displayed with the conventional layout with the small icons and more complex settings which will allow you to customize them as mentioned above. But, for some users, especially for those of new smartphone user, the default layout is quite irritating. Fortunately, this phone has an option which will allow the user to change the home screen mode from the default standard mode to the easy home screen mode which will provide a simpler layout with more bigger icons and vice versa.

How to switch between standard mode and easy mode?
Below are the steps to do so:
  1. Swipe your finger from the top of the screen to the bottom to display the notification panel.
  2. Tap Cogwheel icon at the top of the screen to enter the Settings menu.
  3. Tap My device tab.
  4. Tap Home screen mode.
  5. You'll see two home screen mode options available displayed here. They are:
    • Standard mode: this is the default home screen mode used by the phone. This home screen mode will provide you the conventional layout for the apps and widgets on your Home screens.
    • Easy mode: this mode will be useful for the first time smartphone users because this mode will provide more easier experience compared with the standard mode by displaying a simpler layout and bigger icons.
  6. Tap the desired home screen mode option you wish to use.
  7. Tap Apply button to save the changes.
  8. The selected home screen mode will be applied.

For the record, each home screen mode has their own advantage. If you have been using smartphone for a long time, then it'll be better if you use the standard mode which will allow you to customize the phone and do more settings. While if you're the new smartphone user, then the easy mode is a better choice for you to learn and adapted with the smartphone. Well, hope this helps :)
