Home Sweet Home

In addition to a shiny new UI, device-to-device beaming, an all-new NFC stack, gesture typing, lock screen widgets, and all the other niceties that come with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, Galaxy S4 also includes the option for a simple home screen. This so-called "Easy Mode" replaces Android's dynamic (and as some might say "overly busy") home screens with a set of more simplistic and utilitarian pages like the ones shown. Icons are large and largely self-explanatory, and it offers an interface that's far less intimidating for people who might never have had a smartphone before. Changes made to either set of screens are retained when switching back and forth.
