5) Torch on Lockscreen

you can turn on torch on lockscreen by long pressing the home button just like in V5. But if you want it to stay, you'll need to press the Power button, otherwise the torch will turn off after 2 seconds. This is to prevent misoperation.

6) Icons are scattered?

The apps on your screen are sometimes scattered, want to arrange them automatically?? Enter home screen editing mode, and shake your phone, the apps will get automatically arranged (Not in alphabetic order).

7) Notifications

Notification page:
1) The easy one, you can just press once on the notification and it will send us to the related app
(everyone knows that)
2) We can discard the notification just swiping it to the right side of the screen, but...if we want to discard it by swiping to the left, we have to swip a little to the right and then swip to the left. The last one it's a little tricky but it's necessary because if you don't do in that way you will get to the toggles page.
3) Another interesting thing that we can do with our notifications is to modify if we want to show the related app in the notification shade and if we want to show it in the keyguard. To do so, you only have to long press on the notification and then you will be prompted to change such options.
4) we have the option to discard all notifications, just pressing on the "X" placed on the bottom.
5)We can pinch with two fingers on some notifications to expand them for getting more information, options like share...

Settings - Privacy - Privacy Settings - Lock Individual Apps - Set Pattern and choose apps to lock
