Question regarding message text box between 5.x and 6x


I have tested a migration of from 5.4.5 to 6.1.6.

i’ve noticed the input message text box has changed

(see below, the only image i can upload)


Classic OS view (the zone in red have been volontary reduces for the printscreen):

Smartphone view:


OS view

Smartphone view:

And the “+” view:

For “standard” user, they are globally interested only by simple text, and sharing images/files, except in less common case.

From my point of view, the new version is less user friendly.

(in 5.x, less relevant options are separated and took less place,
in 6.x all the options are at the same level, and, some disabled options are shown. And user XP seems to be worst on a smartphone)

I’m alone to have this feeling ?
Is there a way to have closer UI than the previous one
