Hi, actually I'm happy with the performance of my Nokia 6.1 phone. My previous phone was a Samsung Galaxy Alpha. Quiet a difference. I agree with you about the Bluetooth. I also have pairing problems with my car Bluetooth as you can read(not only me) in this forum.
I use Microsoft Launcher, new apps/icons are not added to the home screen.
In my case my previous phone as a Motorola G5s Plus that has a 625 processor and I feel it snappier than my Nokia 6.1. Same feeling with the Xiaomi Mi A1 of my wife (same processor).
In regards to the option in Google Play to deactivate icons from being added to the home screen, can you be more specific?. I can't find the option you mention in the Nokia 6.1
Thanks both for your replies. Let's hope Nokia fixes the Bluetooth issues of this phone...
