In-Folder icons are Huge! (Note 4)

    I have a ATT galaxy note 4, with default Touchwiz launcher.
    When I put apps in a folder, then open the folder, the icons are HUGE, with only 3 columns and 4 rows (12 total apps) being displayed per screen. I have a lot of apps, and scrolling through folders is not fun. This is ridiculous.
    Even the S4, with a screen half the size, shows a (better) 4 columns/4 rows (16 apps) per page. If anything, the Note 4 should be able to fit in an extra column and 2 rows, not 1 row less!

    How do I increase the number of icon columns (and preferably rows too) in the folder display? I can't find any setting for it and google is not helping. A folder management app(paid or free) woudl be fine, but I would prefer not to have to install a new launcher simply to fix this.

    Thanks for the help!

    Download NOVA Launcher and make almost all the adjustments you feel necessary.

    Thanks, but as mentioned, I was really looking for a solution other than a complete launcher replacement. Any other possibilities?

    No way for now. Wait custom ROM if anyone change that.

    That's...disappointing. It makes no sense to me that a phone with a larger screen actually has fewer icons per page than one with a screen half its size running the same OS. Programming fail.

    Oh well, maybe i'll have to try Nova eventually then...

    Hopefully this won't bother me for long enough that I switch. Are folder contents carried on into nova if installed, or do I have to reorganize all apps?

    You need reorganize it and remember some stock widget won't be there especially the weather widget.

    The 3*4 icons inside folder is new standard set by Samsung, it is like that since S5 and all future updates.
