Excellent probably means Google play services will suck even more of my battery. I use Google+ to backup photos otherwise I'd delete it

I use the app very much and have never had a noticeable drain in neither use nor for non-use. Greenify looks wonderful. But everyone as he wants, so no one is forced to use the app. Personally I do 1000 times better than the FB garbage

I think the new design is very interesting.. I'm excited to see how the other GApps are going to look like. For me it's very interesting that they removed the navigation drawer..

Now if only Google will get some consistency on a UI standard across their Google products. Every damn app has a different ui lol. What is the Google design team smoking over there? Lol.

Hehe yes, it's true but on the other side it's good to see they update the apps and the most updates are good updates

Hangouts , G+ are fine now , Gmail i don't use but looks ok. Maybe in the future we see a package of the apps that visually harmonize

I wish. One thing I love is consistency. The one thing that Google lacks. I think each app has its own team. They need to collaborate for a collective ui.
