I don,t know how to really call it, but how to disable the Google news feed on the swipe left home?
Another problem is sending a contact shortcut to the homescreen. it says its already there bu its not.
Lucky i didn,t get this phone myself, its UI is just horrible ****.

If you do not like the UI change it or get rid of the mobile. For you it is horrible but for most of users not. It is a matter of taste.
Good luck with it.

use a third party launcher to get rid of google page (lawnchair launcher 2,nova launcher)
and make sure you haven't locked homescreen when adding contact shortcut
