    I thought I read somewhere that, with the GS5, you could alter the number of icons you could have on a page but I can't find any info on how to do it. Is there a way to alter the grid?

    I can't say for sure that you can do that with the stock launcher, as I don't have an S5, but many home screen/launcher replacements allow you to adjust the grid to your liking. Nova and Apex are fairly popular around these forums. FWIW, Nova appears to be MORE popular here.

    I am pretty sure the stock launcher does not support this but as said above Apex works great as that is what I use.

    I've used Nova and tesla unread plug in for as long as I can remember. Great replacement.

    Add my vote for Nova! It does so many cool things, I could never go back to the stock launcher. Installation is a piece of cake too, it will "import" your home page layouts from the stock launcher so you aren't starting from scratch.

    Another vote for Apex Pro, the only way to go.
    (Really Apex & Nova are virtually identical feature wise, except Apex runs much much smoother imo)

    Works great for me, been using it the past 3 years without a problem. With 10 million downloads, they must be doing something right.
    Give Nova a try if you the reviews aren't to your liking. Their both great.
