Is anyone else out there who think the notification icons on lockscreen could be bigger ? With some backgrounds the icons are hard to see, especially the missed calls icon. I always have to put my glasses on. An option with 3 icon sizes would be nice.

Edit by nthn: this doesn't have to be a separate setting, it can be attached to the text size setting to make all tiny UI elements larger.

Agreed that they could be sizeable but you could estract them , duplicate resized version than overwright them in user/share/theme folder. i did that with the battery and bluethoot status icons of the status bar to suit my preference. Keep original copy of the stock ones if you ever want to revert back to them.

The problem with that is that they would get overwritten with every update, and you'd have to redo all the work quite often. It's a good idea to make their sizes configurable, though. Maybe they could scale based on the text size, I take it the audience using a larger text size and the audience looking for larger icons have a significant overlap.

Yes in deed but all my personal '' tweeks'b are within same folders architecture than in my sailfish. To ovewright them back with wiscp is only a matter of few minutes. Restart home and thats it.since I am on ported version I already have to update via console command so having to connect with winscp right after does not bother me. Same time I agree that following text sise preference for the icon size would do fine. I personnaly use the ''huge'' text size setting wearing glasses and some time contact lens. With the contacts I loose the near side( older age oblige) correction so big text font is a must , having follow icons size as well would make sense..
