    Taking away one of the most loved features of Android is common practice on some overseas phones. Removing the app drawer makes a phone feel more iOSy which in my opinion is the opposite of what I want in an Android device. LG thought this would be a good idea for the LG G5.

    They quickly received lots of backlash for this decision. It felt like that time when Windows removed the start button! Fortunately LG knows how to listen to consumers and have released LG Home 4.0. Once you download this app you will have a new launcher which does include the app drawer. You can grab this from LG's SmartWorld, or from the link below.

    Good move on LG's part. Let's see how long it takes the Devs to port it to other devices...
