Results: How many homescreens do you have on your device?
If you've been on Android for a while, you've probably dabbled in homescreen customization at least once or twice. You can put your icons and widgets wherever you want, you can move whole homescreens around, you can pick which one is your primary home (on some devices, that is), and so on. On the iPhone, you are a bit more limited than that, but you can still place your apps in folders in order to limit the grand total of homescreens.

As with anything, there are all kinds of people with all kinds of tastes out there. We thought we'd ask you — how many homescreens is too many? Turns out a lot of you guys like to keep their phone tidy — to be expected, really.

How many homescreens do you have on your phone?

One and it's (mostly) clean of icons / widgets!
One, covered in apps / folders, is all I need.
I can tolerate up to three
I have about five screens, give or take one
Ehhh lots... I don't care.

Mine's one homescreen with full of apps and a couple folders. I like my phone organized and as optimized as much as possible.

3; one for the weather, one for frequently used apps, and one for widgets.

3 Home screens... The main one is for the frequently used apps like Browsers, IMs, Angry Birds (Yes...!), a dictionary (Old yet still learning...!), alarm clock, E-Mail, OneNote and other regular blah...! The left one is usually reserved for widgets... And the right one is for rarely used apps... And the rest goes into app drawer, of course...! Oh well, G'Day!

main screen just with three folders that i use more often (one social like facebook and insta, one sports, one with other apps like play store, youtube, maps, keep and imdb) and the shazam widget for quick access. I have a second screen just with the calendar widget and seriesguide widget. I like my phone as clean as possible, that's why i have folders even in main menu.

Mine has 3 homescreens. The center is my main homescreen. I only have one widget and 2 folder apps. I want my homescreen to be clean.
