Add home screen

In order not to spread all apps and folders on a home screen page and lose track between all the app icons, we can add more pages on the OnePlus smartphone home screen.
This way, theoretically a messaging and social networking home screen page can be created, such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram & Co.

To add another home screen, all we have to do is drag an app icon to the edge of the current last page, and another home screen will promptly open, allowing us to position the app shortcut anywhere we want.

The OnePlus smartphone's start screen grid or /-layout can, as usual, be set in predefined grids of 5x5 or 5x6.
