If you don't want to use it, that's definitely your choice. But I can't imagine sitting there waiting for 200 apps to download and install, when you can make a few clicks and have them back in about a minute and a half.
Also, we shouldn't need to do a lot of things with our devices, but we do. Especially tweaking it for better performance and/or battery life, and using apps to do a wide variety of things our phones can't do out of the box... Or the 3rd party apps just do them better.
But to each their own. Good luck! 🍻

And I see why you may have trouble getting conclusive Answers here..... Perhaps a bit of appreciation for those that try to help would go a long way. 👌
Clearly you're not catching my drift buddy.
I've had several nexus devices, tried several ROMs, clean flashed many a time... I don't think there has ever been a time (maybe once) that GPlay correctly restored all my apps to my device, without having to restore many myself manually.
I didn't ask If there was a workaround, I got the same exact answers last time, instead of identifying and accepting the GPlay store issue.
Many people that are not rooted can't even use titanium backup to it's fullest ability.
Don't get me wrong I like titanium backup, EXCEPT for the fact that play store was trying to restore some of my apps at the same time as titanium backup, during phone startup. THIS would be a situation worth providing a workaround?
Play Store was designed and intended to BACKUP and RESTORE user apps. And it is NOT doing so. So there IS an issue here.
Is there something I'm doing wrong here?
Is this a widespread problem?
Is there a solution to fix play store restore issues?
In the meantime I'll use titanium backup to avoid the frustration with the play store, but again, google should fix this issue, and if they're are not aware of it they won't be working on it.
