    Post Stock icons are bigger than 3rd partry app icons

    Found the solution in a stock Samsung Application AndroidManifest.xml You need to add the following line into the <application> tag in the mainfest. <meta-data android:name="com.samsung.android.icon_container.has_icon_container" android:value="true"/> This works with *.png and *.qmg icons too.

    Thread Stock icons are bigger than 3rd partry app icons

    Hi Icons of stock applications on Samsung devices with touchwiz and Android 6.0.1 are displayed bigger than icons of 3rd party apps. It is dependent on the "pixel-weight" of the icon, here an example. If I draw a small border, the icon has almost the same size as the stock ones, but if the...

    The design is very appealing for a midrange device and also compared to a S5mini. In case there will be no future mini version of the upcoming Galaxy S6, this will be the only alternative to a screen oversized phone and will replace the mini series.

    Since the key event has been removed from the home button in Android 4.x, it seems to be one of the few chances to catch the home button pressed event. One other possibility is to overwrite the launcher with the activity and change the launcher default settings, but this would go to far.
