Please change the Settings landing-page so people with small hands can reach favourites more easily.

Just put the static items on top (System settings, Apps, Accounts).

I thought of putting them in a pulley as you barely need accounts and apps after you setup everything but then you had the problem again or you swap the sliders with the favourites for this case.

I just learned that there is actually an order to the favourites:

  1. System Toggle Buttons
  2. System Static Shortcuts
  3. Apps Static Shortcuts
  4. Slider

Does anyone know where/how the order is set? And where is the editor like at the launcher?

No matter what you add it is being added after the last item in its rank in that order.

I'd say that the current position for the favorites is the most reachable. Can't see what would be better by moving them down.

@evk You must have huge hands and a 3 inch thumb then, one handedly reaching the top icons of the favourites must be pretty easy for you?! Easy to reach is the bottom half of the screen!

I've got normal, or possibly even slightly small hands for a man. I think it's more about how the phone is held.
