Thumb holding position and UI for single-handed, holding and control
There seems to still be a little bug, or practical improvement possibility, in the basic UI configuration.
I had this question after looking at the qemu image, and recalling a librem 5 article about the interface design, going for easy, single-handed access to the controls.
When holding the phone --single-handed-- in either hand, I think it is hard to reach down all the way to the bottom or top edge with the thumb of the hand that holds the device. (At least without loosing a firm grip.)
It might be much easier to unlock the device, if sliding could (also) work from the middle of the screen (or circle gesture?), and the (favorite) icons would then appear, accordingly.**
When the phone is already unlocked, sliding-in from either side could also always bring in the "main menu/main screen". For accessibility both sides, so it works no matter which hand can hold the phone. One of the sides should always be rather easy to reach.
Finally, allow switching apps with one hand, no matter which grip style is currently used and without requiring to change the grip style, by placing the favorite app icona and maybe a task slider near to where the slide happened that brought in the "main menu/main screen" (in the top or bottom half of the screen).
