The Quick Settings and Notifications panel is quite austere. Nevertheless, one finds oneself easily. The layout of shortcut tiles can be customized. If you lose yourself by browsing through the various applications, you will only have to drag your finger to the bottom of the screen to access the search bar to quickly find what you want.
However, there is not the same search functionality in the phone settings. If you do not find an option, you will have to search for it for a while.
