    Noticing many people here are already switching out of stock android launcher for Nova and others. Hadn't realized that I would miss something so fast out of my LG G3 and the LG interface, but I'm already annoyed I can't get rid of the persistent Google search bar, plus the icon sizing is just too big.

    Really trying to give stock android a try, particularly as I've had it for all of 2 hours now. But feel I will likely switch to Nova soon which I've tried and liked before. However would appreciate thoughts of anyone who uses it or a different android on whether it lags or slows anything down. Had intended to switch to the Pure for the simplified experience and don't want to jump into things that will slow it down.

    Does Nova or a similar launcher have any drawbacks on usability - specifically speed in loading, running apps, flipping screens - or any any other issues?

    The app that I use is an oldie but goodie. Smooth Calendar.

    Smooth Calendar | Play Store

    If you just search for Agenda Widget there are a ton out there.

    Trying a best buy 16gb to see if it's enough space and if I like it. So far this phone is awesome. Love stock Android.

    I used nova on my moto x 2014 and have been using for about 2 days on the new xpe and haven't noticed any difference in usage from the first 2 or 3 days using the stock Google launcher speed wise or battery wise.

    Just use Nova. Runs so much smoother than stock TouchWiz for me (on Galaxy S6) but runs great on the XPE too! just give it a try. Also, you can download and apply icon packs which I really love. you can change the icon size on your home page, remove persistent google search bar, etc. Just try it, check out the settings, and love it!

    I've been using the Google Now Launcher since I got this phone 4 days ago. Today I decided to go back to Nova which I'd been using on the Moto X 2013. It didn't play nice! I had double images of the docks, date/time widget and notifications bar. I went back to setting to ensure the Google Now Launcher was cleared, it was. I adjusted the Nova settings and didn't make any difference. I cleared cache from Nova and finally just uninstalled it. But, there is an HD widget on the home screen that will not remove. I can't drag it to the "remove" X on top of the screen, when i try it opens the Screen settings. i uninstalled the HD widget and I still can't remove it from my screen. Any suggestions? Thanks. Oh, and I've rebooted 3 times to no avail.

    The screenshot is of the homescreen.. I actually have 3 screens in use but the little indicator dots in the center show I have 5. The notifications bar seems to have another over it. The time widget can't be removed and it won't open to edit either.

    None here. Tried hard to stay stock but the last upgrade was too much so back to Nova I went.
