Ah OK sorry did not know that, haven't used MIUI in a few years, had a look in play store settings and its not in there so I'm stumped tbh.I use Microsoft launcher and there is a setting in there.

Try this

Touch your home screen to bring up Wallpaper, Widgets and Settings.

Select settings

Then select More

Select Home screen.
There are two radio button options now, App Drawer or Regular

See if selecting App Drawer will work.

Touch and hold the app icon without launching the app. Then slide it it off your home screen to another area.

On the main home screen, hold a blank area of the screen - click home settings (beside widgets / wallpaper, hopefully its the same on this device) - there's an option to toggle on/off '' Auto add new apps icons to home screen'')

The 9S is a great phone, it's just missing NFC.
I'm swapping it out for the 9 Pro, which has NFC.
If you didn't use it, there'd be no reason I wouldn't recommend the 9S to you.
If you do use it, I'd recommend the 9 Pro

Daughter getting a phone for Christmas this year. Was going to go for the Redmi Note 8t from Amazon for £172 unless someone could tell me a more suitable phone for less than €200.

I got a Reno 2. Very happy with it. Excellent value and battery is excellent also.

I'm using a Redmi 9. The 8t doesn't have NFC. Compare both phones specs on Gsmarena phone finder.

It's on Amazon.es for €139. Check how much delivery costs. There are Parental controls if that's a concern.

8T does indeed have NFC. £172 would be expensive for it though. Should be available for ~€150

Apologies.

I was trying to remember what made me choose the Redmi 9 over it, it's a while since I compared them. Redmi 9 has larger battery and cheaper.

Comparison of specs below

Great, thanks Fix and Stock, will go with the 9 from Spain, delivery is €8 so all in for less than €150.

Appreciate the help

Amazon.es and amazon.de are usually fairly competitive on price.
