What is Simple Home and how do I use it?
The Simple Home screen is an alternative, simplified home screen that displays your most used apps. The Simple Home screen includes a speed dial feature and uses large fonts and icons for pre-installed applications such as Contacts, Messaging and Calendar. Like with the standard Home screen, you can change, personalise and rearrange your apps.
Note! Some Xperia™ models have Simple Home only when running on Android™ version 5.0.
