Both the smartphones feature a slew of cool features that one would expect from a flagship device. In addition, they pack a few exclusive features in the form of a 24/7 dedicated customer support, Google Assistant, unlimited storage space for photos and videos, and more.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you'd already know about the aforementioned features. But, what you may not know is the fact that these smartphones have a lot more features hidden deeply.
One such feature is the ability to change the size of UI elements of the smartphone such as the size of app icons or the text.
Here's a step-by-step guide to change the size of app icons if you've already purchased the Google Pixel or its bigger sibling, the Pixel XL.
Step 1: Open Settings
In order to change the size of app icons, firstly, you'll have to head straight to the Settings of your smartphone.
Step 2: Select Display Settings
On scrolling down through the Settings menu, you can see the Display Settings right above the Notifications settings, click on it.
Step 3: Click on Display size
Then, scroll down a bit and click on the "Display size" option. You'll see an adjustable slider at the bottom of the screen.
Step 4: Adjust the size to your liking
Now, all you have to do is to adjust the slider to get the size of your liking. By default, the slider will be at the 2nd stop, you can further go on and shift it to the 5th stop, which is the maximum or you can let it be where it was depending on your requirement.
Step 5: The same can be done to Font as well
Just above the "Display size" option under display settings, you'll find the "Font size" option. Repeat the same process as mentioned in the above step to change the size of the font on your smartphone.
