Size of icons on the Home screen depends upon the choice of the user. Some users like smaller icons with minimum number of icons on the Home screen and like more and more vacant space on the Home Screen. While, on the other hand, many other users like large number of icons and yet bigger ones on Home Screen. Likeness of size of icons on Home screen also depends upon the eyesight of a person which changes in proportionate to the age of the person. So, one can say that aged persons like icons with bigger size.

Understanding the difference of age and eyesight level between users, Android has included a feature in the KitKat 4.4.4 to show bigger icons if liked by the users.

You may also use bigger or smaller icons on the Home screen of your Android device but if you need, I suggest you to see instructions.
