This super high end android phone has loads of customization options with addition deletion and re-addition of the home screen.  This  monster android comes with default seven home screens which are more than enough for all your widgets and application shortcuts.

In the home screen you can choose to customize any screen according to your own taste. If you want you can keep it clean and free if you want you can fill it with good looking widgets.

One of the good features Samsung has figured out that if a screen contains a lot of widgets and you have to replace them with another set of widgets there is no requirement of deleting each and every widget, you can simply just delete that screen and add a fresh blank screen in place of the old home screen which is really very cool feature.
