    I am having a real hard time deciding which UI to stick with...Stock LG Home or Nova Prime? I have been mirroring both launchers with the same layout, widgets and icons and I gotta say, there isn't much that the LG Launcher can't do that Nova can! I actually had to add a few apps to Nova to get it to behave like the LG UI such as Screen Lock for double tap sleep. I also have that feeling that something could go wrong with Nova Prime long before anything would go wrong with the stock UI.

    So what do you guys think? Which launcher are you using and why? I'm going to include a poll for quick reference but be sure to drop a comment as well!

    Nova hands down for me. Love the customizability with icon folders, grid scaling/sizing, icon packs, etc...

    Nova. Love the customability and gestures. Been my goto launcher for years.

    I have found the opposite to be true. Nova can do far more than the stock UI.

    Nova on all my phones for quite some time now. I try other launchers here and there but always go back to Nova. The gestures and customization options, are awesome. Best I've found. I change my set-up often. I can access everything so fast.

    I love & hate my G4. Mostly love though.

    I usually don't even look at the launcher on a new phone - I install Nova, then my apps, then my Nova backup, so all the screens look the way they used to. I know which screen my car apps are on, I know which screen my appointment apps are on - so all my phones look the same all the time.

    About the only time I run the stock launcher is when I'm setting Nova up, or when I'm working on someone else's phone (which keeps reminding me why I use Nova). LG's launcher isn't bad, but I much prefer Nova.

    There is a lot that Nova can do that the stock launcher can't do. The stock launcher is pretty basic and the only reason to use it is if you really love the LG widgets and smart bulletin.

    I'm currently using Action Launcher 3, though.

    Buzz launcher for me. I like the ability to auto sort apps in order of most used.

    Stock currently, though I may spend some time and download Nova and go through the customization. It just seems there's so much customizing to do that I get overwhelmed when I have the OEM launcher setup.

    Maybe I'll give it a shot tonight.

    Even though I always used Nova prime on my last three Samsung phones, I'm kinda amazed at how much customizing I can do with the LG stock launcher. So far, I haven't found the need to run Nova on the G4. The stock launcher seems to do everything I wanted to. And I'm really liking this phone.

    I set up Nova on my G4 this morning (not Nova prime, I'm not into paying for apps). I don't really see any difference from the OEM launcher, other than it's easier to add icon packs and hide the status bar.

    I mean, if I wanted a bit more real estate on my screen, I could certainly do that with Nova, but I don't really have anything extra at the moment I need to stuff onto the screen(s).

    I've used Nova on my last 3 android phones, last being a G3 and my current note 4 as it helped with the lag.

    Got an LG G4 on order and will be putting Nova on that too. The improvements made to the UI on the G4 make it very usable out of the box, but Nova beats it on almost all counts for me. Notification badges are a nice touch, especially if you're coming from an iPhone.

    As mentioned above, the only thing that is missing is the ability to sort the app drawer alphabetically, but not a big deal for me.

    Yeah, I don't like that you have to use TeslaUnread to add unread message count badges to Nova...seems like a workaround and doesn't quite work 100%. The Stock launcher seems to handle badges well.

    Just put Nova on mine and am really liking it. I didn't really dislike the stock launcher though. Nova just takes it up a notch if you want to really change things up. And it's very fast.

    I must be missing something, my app drawer is alphabetical and I have Nova.

    I feel like I'm the odd one out here.

    Nova Prime is usually a *MUST-INSTALL* on all my devices, whether it's an Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 or a Galaxy Note 5.

    But for some reason, I never felt the need to install Nova Prime on my G4. There's something I like about the stock LG UX.

    You aren't. I'm in the same boat. Still on stock. Ran stock on my G3 also.

    I have a G3 too, and it too, runs the stock launcher.

    Had a play around with the stock launcher. It's certainly an improvement since the G3 and if I wasn't used to Nova I'd probably stick with it. Like that you can change the icons to anything you want.

    Since I'm one of the unlucky one's forced to reset every month I'm trying to go stock for awhile. I usually go straight to Nova which I love. Stock lacks in a couple areas especially gestures which I use all the time. It's very good though.

    I've switched over to Nova. There really wasn't much on the stock launcher that I used (I had disabled that LG screen almost from the start). One other thing is that I use Muzei for background, and I couldn't double tap on that with stock launcher. I can with Nova, and I just double tap at top of screen if I want it to sleep.
