Android 14, info indicates One UI 6.0 is installed.

Feels like phone got hacked.

Lost all favorites on home screen and secondary screens. Now there is only one screen with a few options. Hard to find anything.

In default apps for Launcher, there is a launcher called "Launcher" with generic android icon. There is no option for One UI.

How to get things back to what we had.

Please.

Fixed.

The default home app had the following apps:

  • Launcher
  • Nova7
  • Smart Launcher

At some point I noticed that Power Saving was on.  When I turned that off, everything came back. It even changed  the genericly named "Launcher" back to One UI.  I did tested it be turning power saving back on. Sure enough one screen with 8 icons at the bottom. 

I'd say that's an extreme approach to limiting battery usage. I'm guessing the battery was low and there was a suggestion to save battery. So no way to understand why all the curated home pages disappeared. Bad user experience design.
