I'm a big supporter of Nova Launcher and was wondering if I were to use it on the G3, would the icons, menu and what not support lgs Qhd display? Also what about icon packs?

I won't have mine until the 17th (Verizon), So I can't test it out.

Thanks!

I'm using Nova Launcher Prime with "LG G3 Go Apex Nova ADW Theme" Icon pack - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ylab.lgg3theme

DPI set at 540.

Icon Size set at 130%

See for yourself, but I think it looks great.

what about your app drawer? i have the same dpi setting, icon size at 85% and running on nova now. but my app drawer contains a lot of android icons, mostly system pre-loaded apps.

see the pic:

Nova runs beautifully on my G3 and quite a bit smoother than the stock LG launcher. However, the LG launcher is very good and there is a lot of customization available.

One thing I've noticed about the QHD display is that it exposes apps with low-res icons. Nova doesn't display these icons any better, but if you use an icon pack with QHD support, you can expect crystal clarity.

The buttery Nova animations with this amount of Ram, SOC & display = WOW!!!

Install the beta version of nova and all will be right.

To change Dpi, don't you have to be rooted?

Im using the paid version of nova. Is there a beta version of nova on the play store? I can only see one version of it, plus the full paid unlock.

Guys what are you losing when switching to Nova from Stock? Only knock to sleep?

AFAIK you can set Nova to update to beta version in its settings.
