LG may have attempted to reimagine the Android smartphone with the LG G5’s modular design, but it was an aspect of the device’s software that proved most controversial when it was first presented to the world. The South Korean company’s flagship broke away from tradition by removing the app drawer – something that many users consider to be a defining feature of Android.
Initially it was said that an app drawer would not be available when using the default LG UX launcher on the LG G5, and only EasyHome – a restricted, easy-to-use interface – would support the feature. Now that decision appears to have been revised, with a video posted to LG Mobile’s official global YouTube channel showing an app drawer option in the smartphone’s settings.
The option of using an app drawer on the LG G5 will be available in UX 5.0.
