    I just want a smooth, pure stock experience, without modification.
    Hell, I've been using Nova for years to simulate a stock experience. Currently got a Pixel look on my S8.

    When using Pixel Launcher occasionally I cannot hear audio of incoming calls. When using Nova Launcher I have never had audio problems with income calls. Oops, using Pixel 2.

    I'm sticking with the stock launcher. Every time this conversation comes up with a new device I feel like I am missing out on something because all the power users have Nova. Each time, I go an reinstall nova and spend some time setting it up and decide I don't like it any better than the stock launcher. It has tons of tweaks, but I just don't need them. Sometimes it is missing something that I really like on the stock launcher. I am not falling for it this time.

    I am sticking with the stock launcher. I wish I could get rid of the white icon frames, but everything else is OK.

    The Pixel launcher is the best I've used so far, so I'm sticking with it. If it ain't broke...

    I used Nova for years before I bought my first Nexus phone, and I've used the stock launcher ever since.

    Does Nova have the ability to change the navigation setup back to the traditional 3 button navigation setup?
    I was wondering this same question myself. I don't think I could get used to not having the gestures instead of the three buttons and was hoping that a third party launcher could restore them.
    No it doesn't.
    Bummer! I can't believe Google isn't giving us the option to have the buttons and not have to use gestures! Guess I'll be sticking with my Galaxy S9+ (with Nova Launcher) a little longer.

    The feature of managing folders inside the app drawer itself is enough for me to stick with Nova Prime. The best part of it is, when I create a folder in app drawer and add a shortcut at desktop. They are automatically in sync. Meaning, adding/removing app in the folder automatically reflects changes in drawer and shortcut.

    I like my icon set with Nova, and a bunch of other tweeks. Whatever makes you happy.
    What icons do you use?

    Been going with the Pixel launcher for a while now. Probably going to stick with it.

    Other than locking desktop which prevent from accidentally moving icons, I'm good with Pixel launcher. Sticking with it, though also have Nova and others to try out once in a while if I get bored. But majority of times I'm with Pixel launcher.

    I love Nova, never thought I would use a launcher. I have Pixel 2 XL. But to resize all my Icons smaller to fit most so many apps on 1 screen is great. I'm using 12x9 grid as home screen. On my App drawer, I can see every app in one screen using 12x10 grid, no scrolling. I've hidden a few, but its great to be able to see every app on 1 screen. I only scroll left/right for email widgets, calendar, memos, etc.

    If I get a Pixel I'll probably immediately switch to Nova. Love it on my GS8. Quick question:. In order to port over my exact settings in Nova from the S8 to Pixel would I just save my backup in Device Storage (on the S8)?

    I'm coming at this from the OTHER direction. I have a Vivo Nex S, and the built in launcher is, well lets just say it's not the greatest. So I downloaded the Pixel launcher, and switched to it, on my device.

    I use pretty much the P3 icons - but on Nova (for many reasons) and with a solid black background (AMOLED screen - saves battery).

    I've gotten used to the gestures on the Pixel 3xl so will stick with the Pixel launcher. Nothing against Nova since I have that on my Nexus 6p but so far I like the Pixel launcher just fine.

    Interesting. Are you sure something hasn't put the phone into DND or silent? I have my phone set to go to silent when I have an appointment.

    I agree. I have no issues at this time. Even with the P2XL I had not issues.

    I am eagerly waiting for my sister to bring me my Pixel 3 since I live in Mexico. I want to see the Pixel Launcher for the Pixel 3 but I won't have the Google Search bar on my phone.
