    Not sure what happened... I didn't recently update or anything but I restarted my phone and all of a sudden one of my pages can only hold 9 apps and not the full 16. When you try to add apps to that page, it looks like there is only room for 9 apps. Even moving all the apps away from that page and onto a new one, converts that page to a 9 app page.

    Thank you

    I mean are you using the stock rom or a custom one? I don't believe the stock launcher has any settings to change icon spacing but I may be wrong as I flash custom roms within hours of getting a new phone.

    Not the best solution but you could try going into the settings and clearing the appdata for the launcher, this will remove all icons/widgets you currently have on your homescreens also.

    Not sure what you mean by Rom... I didn't install any Rom in my device

    Sorry, Custom Roms are something advanced users might install because they do not like the way their phone looks/works or do not like all the preinstalled apps/bloatware. If you never modified your phone we generally refer to this as stock.

    I would say try clearing the appdata for the launcher app as I stated above. If that does not fix it hopefully someone with more stock rom experience can come help you out. I wish you luck.

    How would I go about doing that... clearing thr app data?

    Ah, dont know the exact steps for stock but it should be something like

    Setting -> Apps -> Swipe over to all apps -> click whats probably called "launcher" -> Then click; Force stop, clear data, clear cache. You phone may need to be restarted after if the launcher fails to re-launch automatically..

    so you think this has to do with an app and not the way the page is displayed?

    Have a look and see if this helps: 2014-10-07_1022 - losse2010's library you'll see that one of my pages is really only "half" the size" it's on that page that I can only include 9 apps

    I'm guessing that one of the nine icons on that 'limited' page is a widget, not an application. App icons are usually 1x1, with each screen having a grid of 16. Widget icons can be 2x1, 4x2, 4x4, etc. If so, that 4x4 widget icon is only letting you put 8 other icons on that particular screen. Dump that errant widget icon and replace it with its corresponding app icon.

    when I click on the home button, it's my second page of apps... it's not a page with the "Apps | Widgets" menu at the top. If it was a widget... you'd see that menu at the top from my screenshot.

    Try deleting that homescreen page and setting it up again, been a while since I used Touchwiz but I think that's possible still?
