Description:
On the Change Home Screen page, the user is shown a list of installed home screens ("Default Home Screen" and "New Home Screen").  This list displays radio buttons next to each list item to indicate which is selected.

It is not clear to the user that tapping on the text of the item will navigate into the details page for that item, and not select it for the radio button and enable that home screen.  On the detail page, there is no Enable toggle for the user to select. They will not know that they must specifically tap on the radio button, not on the text, to enable that specific home screen.

Additionally, the existence of the details page is not easily discoverable to the end user. They will not know that they are able to navigate to that page by tapping the text, and this will potentially prevent them from accessing features, such as the Column layout in Default Home Screen

Repro Steps:
1) Update a Aries to 20150924111215
2) Navigate to Settings > Home Screens > Change Home Screen
3) Tap the Text of "New Home Screen"
4) Navigate back, then tap the radio button next to "New Home Screen"

Actual:
UI is not clear for home screen list item functionality when tapping on the text vs tapping on the radio button.

Expected:
The UI clearly indicates the functionality of navigating to the home screen details page vs enabling a specific home screen.
