I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and I just looked at the home screen and some of my app icons have a grey circle around them.

Is there any meanings of this? Is it possible to turn it off while still using TouchWiz?

    Could you add the screenshot or find relevant image from the net to clarify the issue? – Andrew T. Jul 7 '16 at 6:09
  • There's no meaning behind it, some launchers like perhaps your default Samsung launcher, try to add such backgrounds to the logos of apps, so that they all appear uniformly, like squares or circles. Try checking your launcher display settings if you can disable this or maybe try a different launcher that offers more control like Nova launcher. – Ghos3t Jun 22 '19 at 1:19

Not sure if this was fixed or not, but change the screen resolution and that should fix your icons.
