Hi,

I have a fairly new nexus 5 from an RMA so is this a issue with new handset or I have read it's due to new Google now launcher.

Every time I close game app or social media app my screen icons disappear and the come back after a second or so.

I didn't have this on my original at any point.

Thanks

I'm running completely stock and I do occasionally get oddities when returning to the launcher. Mostly, this results in the wallpaper turning black for a split second before returning. It's not the end of the world but it doesn't look very slick next to iOS 6... I've not found a cure for it sadly.

It's a memory issue. When you are running heavy apps suchs as games etc the launcher will drop out of memory to make place for the game and will have to redraw itself when you go back to it. I have not personally had this issue with the stock launcher as far as I know but on the other hand I do not play games either except for emulators. Perhaps it's some kind of Google Launcher issue. It should stay in memory though and not get killed unless you have very little free RAM available.

Don't worry it is only because of your heavy graphics apps, generally social media apps or games apps takes lots of memory to store.
