    With Android 9 Pie the background color for app folders, and the app drawer is auto-set based on your wallpaper. If you have a darker wallpaper then folder backgrounds are black and the app drawer background is black. If you have a lighter / brighter wallpaper (like the stock Z4 wallpaper) then those backgrounds are white. It's one of those new Google "features".

    I think you can change that by going to Settings > Display > Advanced > Device Theme > pick dark if you want your backgrounds to always be black.

    I kind of like the auto setting based on wallpaper, but that's just my preference. I think if you change it in the Display Settings it will always be dark or light based on your selection.

    Awesome! Thank you! I knew it was probably somewhere, but hadn't had time to fish around yet. Changed and much happier!

    According to a Moto tech support agent, this is the intended functionality of the stock Launcher (and maybe even stock Android?); the folder retains the circle shape regardless of the app icon shape.

    It's not a deal-breaker (HA! I own it now, so....), and will get used to it. I guess it was that way on my Z, but it wasn't as obvious for some reason. Darkening the background made a huge difference.
    Thanks again!

    Wish I had seen this earlier. I'd have talked you into the OnePlus, G. The hype is real.
    Seriously guys, why are you all still on the Moto train? I don't get it. This from a former Moto fan boy. I don't even get Moto anymore!?! And my opinion of that is only solidified after reading this entire thread.
    IF I had stayed with Moto I'd have gotten the Z3. Much better phone. Mods fit. High end processor.
    I can't believe mods don't fit...

    The One Plus seems like a great phone, I personally have nothing against it. I stuck with Moto for a few reasons, a new phone for $240 - hard to beat that. Great build quality, and their customer support has always treated me very good when I need something. And so I could continue to use all my Moto Mods when I want to / need to. The larger Moto Mods like batteries fit OK, the lip is not too noticeable; and some say it makes it easier to remove them. The Style Shells are what don't fit right in my opinion, and look silly to me. But....since it's a Gorilla Glass screen I am not going to use it naked with just a Style Shell like I did on my Z Force & Z2 Force. Once I realized that, I put my style shells away and use a cheap TPU case.

    Like I mentioned, the One Plus is nice, would be a great phone for anyone. For me personally, it's either a Moto phone or a Pixel. Those are the only 2 options I will spend my money on.

    Why does OP not make your list?
    The 6t is better then the 3 except for the camera and is much cheaper. Currently $550.
    The 3A is good but not a flagship. You're a flagship guy.
    Seriously, the reviews, the hype... it's real.
    The 6t can still compete with any phone out today. The much more expensive 7Pro (but still cheaper the Pixel or Galaxy), if you don't mind curved edges, is top 3 phones out now.
    Still had hope after the Z3. That's a good phone. Then the Z4 came out. I'd take the Z3 over that.
    That was my last straw.
    My fanboyism has switched from Moto to OP. Your's should too.
    Of course I get it if you're still into mods. But otherwise....

    That's not too shabby.
