    After being sick of lag I decided to change the BB launcher for NOVA.

    The phone feels much more snappy and the Nova features are very good.

    One plus point that surprised me is what happened when I pressed the keyboard on the home screen - see pictures

    I will keep you posted on battery life and performance but it's looking like the BB launcher is very inefficient.

    Meaning, with NOVA , type on keyboard does a full phone search like in BlackBerry launcher?
    So, we are really not losing any features?

    I set my "long press S" to the device search... and don't really have lag issues with the stock launcher

    I have big lag issues with the launcher. I still use the Hub for texts and email.

    No. You can't dedicated an app or action to a key.

    Nova swipe gestures more than make up for the loss of keyboard shortcuts in my opinion

    Nova launcher actually brings significant battery saving to justfiy giving up the shortcuts?

    I wonder what you're doing different that makes it have lag as I don't have any lag either. For me, my 4 month old KEYone running BB Launcher is rather snappy and even opens some apps quicker than my Galaxy S8 that I got 2 days ago and is running Nova Launcher
