    I can think of a lot worse places, don't be so dramatic.

    I have to agree, do not like the search button there. Hopefully it can be moved. With that said it will not make or break my decision since we have access to custom launchers, which some of us here prefer anyway

    But yeah it's there to try to get people to use it more, even if it's by accident. I do use the search function but mainly from the Google now page.

    most of the time you can remove it like a widget. it should still be the case with this phone.

    Nova launcher has everything you need... Running Google like launcher with Nova with more options is a win...

    Of course, you can remove it and of course Nova has been my staple for 5 years. Although with my Z2, I tried to go cold turkey with no Nova and so far, I'm not missing it too much. Nova got a little weird on me towards the end of my T2 run so I wanted to try stock. I'm sure I'll go back eventually.
    I still want to know where that 'dude' put his dialer icon. :D

    most third party launchers are good. though in the different forums Nova is considered one of the best. I use smart launcher 3 myself and have for several years.

    that is the thing about launchers, if you don't like the way the stock works or looks, just change it.
