LG G5 fans are getting what they asked for. In February 2015, LG decided to get rid of the app drawer altogether. However, in a recent video showing a new user interface, UX 5.0, LG shows several options in the settings menu. One of those settings featured an app drawer.

Users can select the app drawer option if they don’t want a “single layer springboard approach” for apps on their LG G5.

Check it out in the video below.

Along with the new app drawer (go to 2:15 in the video), UX 5.0 features a much cleaner UI with crisp, attractive graphics and fonts.

The new interface has new camera features, and LG health app, and comes with a “Smart Doctor” feature which allows you to diagnose your own medical issues right from the handset.

What’s Next: Get whatever the hell you want

Mobile companies are being forced to listen to what their customers want, and to give it to them – no matter what. In the near future, we’re going to see more and more user-centric updates based on customer feedback and ideas. Big players in the mobile space will only be able to stay big if they set aside what they think might be cool (no more app drawer), and actually take user experience into account for each device they create and each update they push (app drawer! app drawer!).

Could you do without an app drawer or could you never live without it?
