Android app with full screen remote?

I just got the new Roku app on my phone. Fugly. The remote is too small for me to use.

I tried another one from the google play store (no ads) but the remote was the same size. Small.

I'm using a cheap phone with only 8GB storage as a remote, so I just really want something simple. I don't have any other smartphone. I just need the remote, not all the other garbage that comes along for the ride.

Does anyone know of an app that has a larger remote? Or can I somehow get the old version back. If so how?

Thanks

I don't see an edit button.

This is what I did. I went to apkmirror.com. Found Roku apps, downloaded to my PC. Transferred to my android phone. File manage > roku apk > install.

Make sure your settings in android/google play has auto update disabled.

I picked version 5. I have an old phone. Now my roku navigation buttons are the regular size as before!!!! Whooohooo!!!!

If you click the 3 vertical dots to the right of your post, there's a dropdown menu and edit is available.
