Dear Samsung Support, 
I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to share my feedback regarding the recent One UI 6 update on my device. Before the update, I appreciated the edge-to-edge screen usability on my home screen, which allowed me to make the most of the display space. However, since the update, I have noticed a change that has affected my user experience. Currently, I am unable to utilize the entire home screen space as effectively as before. There seems to be approximately 1 inch of unusable space on either side of the home screen, limiting my ability to place icons or shortcuts in those areas. The previous setup, with the full home screen space available, not only provided added convenience but also contributed to a more elegant and visually pleasing interface. I understand that updates aim to enhance user experience, but in this case, it has impacted the practicality and aesthetics of my device. I kindly request that you consider addressing this concern in future updates or provide guidance on any settings adjustments that may help restore the previous edge-to-edge functionality on the home screen. Thank you for your attention to this matter. I appreciate your ongoing efforts to improve the Samsung user experience.

Same issue here. It seems crazy that you would basically have to buy the next model up to get the same screen real estate you used to get on your original model. It makes zero sense. Really hope this gets remedied as it's extremely frustrating and feels very limiting and wasteful. My eyes can't help but get drawn to the wasted space...

I updated my Samsung tablet s8 plus today and also having the same issue. This is really bad experience as I too enjoyed having the entire screen at my disposal but now I'm having almost 20% empty. Why?
It reminds me of the early iPad OS days - in a bad way.
Please fix rapidly!

Please rollback the update. The update made the dex mode really bad. I loved it previously but now it reduces the display for note taking. Futhermore the new update is messing with my S-pen as well. Never had any issues with the previous UI, but now sometime the pen does not register while taking notes.

I've got 3 Galaxy Tab A7 Lite's that just got the One UI 6.0 upgrade in the last few days. The A7 Lite is experiencing the same problem everyone else is having. As soon as the update (I refuse to call it an upgrade) was done, all of my icons are now tiny and I lost the screen real estate on both sides. 😠  Oh, and to make matters worse, Good Lock isn't available in the Galaxy Store for A7 Lite.
