    I mean the only reason I asked about a long trip, it is only for the fact of custom icons and icon pack online I really don't care and I can deal with the stock icon lock anyways

    I use Nova Prime. But I use only to get rid of homescreens (I only need 3), change the folder colour settings and increase the icon size. I use it basically to tweak my phone to look more Google Experience Like.

    Yeah like I said, the only reason I would use a large fry at all as for custom icon pack The Sun even that important to me my phone is customized in other ways NFL on the Google now launcher if you have a Google now wherever you want to launch it from on the phone. Isn't that what touchless controls is for? Lol

    I am currently using the latest version of the Google now launcher. I had to side load it, but it was worth the extra work. I have found no other launcher that works better for me.

    After trying the contextual launchers since my last post on this thread (Aviate, Everything Me), I've gone back to a "static" launcher. The reason is the contextual ones were much more of resource hogs (RAM, battery), and the added features weren't enough benefit to my taste. Have tried most of the "big name" ones, but I have settled on Smart Launcher 2 Pro. Like having my home icons in a circle arrangement for one-thumb access, and like being able to choose both apps and widgets on the same icon (with a double-tap option). I think there are others that have this feature nowadays, but I like the lightweight effect of SM2P on the X.

    You know, whenever I have tried out a third party launcher in the past on my android devices, there a customizable but they use a lot of resource memory that we can use for other activities and they are battery hog I've noticed my battery to the decrease off the two times faster with the largest all the plane Jane stock Android is good enough for me and it's where my battery is at as well

    Yeah the stock launcher has its plusses. It all comes down to your taste in UI and how important google now is to you.

    Yeah the Google now widget is very useful. Before I was using the Google Now Launcher I had a whole page on the Stock luncher dedicated to the Google now widget. I resized it to take up the whole grid.

    I don't know if you are at all a fan of customization, but Nova Launcher is basically the stock launcher with tons of additional options. I used it for a while, and it was good, but a bit too much options for me. I prefer more simple launchers.

    You know something, I used to use nova launcher on my old phone such as a razor, Razr Maxx HD, set it cetera the only problem is that it's been slow the phone down too much but I knew that it was always a running program which drove me nuts and I didn't mind the stock launcher even back then... Nowadays, the nearest experience / Nexus experience on our Moto X is is perfectly fine for me... Yes, you're right, nova launcher has many more options, the nowadays as well, am I not use all of them...

    Nova is a good launcher and was updated to support the OK Google hotword. It's my go to launcher.
