We have been witnessing the trend of increasing screen sizes for quite some time now. Maybe we absolutely desire a particular smartphone but have second thoughts about buying it because of its huge size. These apps will make your big screen phones more handy to use.
Meteor Swipe: Meteor Swipe is a sidebar which can let you access your apps as you wish to configure it. It can also hold shortcuts provided by your apps e.g. a playlist or a WhatsApp chat. TIP: Use it with apps like Floating Calc to get an awesome multitasking experience.

Nova Launcher: This has been one of the critically acclaimed apps for a long time now. Its simplicity makes it fluid to use but Gestures add another dimension to its usability. There are a ton of gestures you can configure but I suggest you try all 2 finger gestures and double tap to lock screen on your big screen. TIP: Watch this video to get an idea.
GBoard/SwiftKey: Both these keyboards offer a one-handed typing mode which shrinks the keyboard to the side of your typing thumb. Combine it with gesture/swipe typing and you’ll be able to type with one hand as efficiently as with two hands.
Texpand: A simple app the lets you define the shorthand phrases you use and expands it for you while typing with your consent. This surprisingly makes life easier for avid chatters.
Swiftly Switch: An app similar in functionality to Meteor Swipe but offers access to many more shortcuts at once. Whether you choose meteor swipe or swiftly is a matter of personal preference.
Gravity Gestures: This takes a different approach and lets you execute apps and toggles by just moving your phone in certain fashions. It’s similar to the well known Moto Actions on Moto smartphones.
DirectChat: Enables Facebook Messanger-like chat bubbles for all of your chatting apps.
