will my device still retain features such as knock on, knock codes, lg's customized nav buttons, qslide apps, multi windows if I use a 3rd party launcher like nova launcher?

yes. the only thing you will lose is the lg specific widgets, the lg health page and the ability to knock off anywhere (you can still double tap the status bar to knock off)

i'm using nova and all the other lg stuff works great

Thanks, but how about the nav buttons? I don't want to lose the ability to rearrange the nav buttons and quick notification pull down button

I wish there was a way to still get the LG widgets and health app outside of the stock launcher. I'd also love the lock screen clock as a widget

Knock off will only work if you double tap the status bar. It's unfortunate.

I found a solution by binding nova launcher gesture to a screen off app

I'm also using Nova. I wish it came with gestures for locking the screen. It would have been easier to replicate the knock off feature

If you are using Nova Launcher, you can create a shortcut to the LG Health app.

I found the "Turn Off" little free app works beautifully for that.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ndroid.TurnOff

Just install it, then bind the double tap gesture in Nova to "Turn off" shortcut, and you get an exact replacement for Knock Off.
