    I'm trying to organise the workspace on my phone so all my commonly used apps are on the first page and the lesser ones on other pages. I'm a bit ocd and like to group my similar icons together such as news channels etc for example. So I began to wonder how everyone else organises theirs and maybe I could pick up an idea or two!

    My most used apps are in the bottom right quarter of the screen in the sweep of my right thumb.

    I'm liking the folder idea I have put some in folders on other pages. But my first page is looking cluttered. Wish I could out the icons where I want them instead of them filling up the rows toll I gets to the bottom of the screen?

    I'm sticking to a new page for different sets of icons, games on one page, photo editing etc another. Seems to work nicely with all my most used apps on the first page, using folders for unused icons on the last page

    I used to have mine All out on the scrren on my Q10 but wanted to clear it up a bit and went the folders route, front page is my most used, 2nd page is games folders, apps folders, news, weather folders and a couple of web links, 3rd page web links in folders 4th android bits,
    Took a bit of getting used too after 8 or 9 pages but Much tidier!

    Yes I'm still fiddling and playing moving stuff around , got too many pages so maybe a rethink and folders is the way to go, my organisational OCD keeps kicking in and I can't quite handle a different type of app going over into the next line lol. spent two hours organising it and I'm still not 100% happy :/

    I put one less folder/icon than the max on each page. The small blank area makes it super easy to swipe between pages. Try to keep everything on 2 or 3 pages.

    Ideas for folder names:

    Social Media
    Music and Media
    News or News feeds
    Navigation
    Productivity
    App Stores
    Communication
    Cloud or Cloud Storage
    Shopping
    Games
    Board Games

    I think I've found or struck the right balance between single apps and folders now where I had 8 pages of apps singularly. I now have only 2 pages plus one page with a folder of unused apps .

    Now I'm happy with the look and feel. Nice dark background makes icons stand out. And a great balance between single app icons and folders yep I'm happy with that

    Most used in the bottom right corner, close the the right thumb. Tthen outwards depending on usage, for instance, I never USE the calendar but the date on the thumbnail is useful. Also hardly use BBM,Facebook, or contacts. I prefer to search for a contact by just typing theirr name
