Default [Q] Stick with stock calendar app or use Google Calendar instead?

Since getting my Moto X I've been wondering why the calendar app icon is different from what I'm used to with my Nexus devices, and another thread indicates that the stock calendar app is the AOSP calendar, which is different from the Google Calendar in the Play Store. I also noticed that the Google Calendar in the Play Store was updated yesterday with the typical "bug fixes". What are the pros and cons of staying with the stock app or switching to Google Calendar?

The main difference I saw was the newer Google Calendar has a better time selector. I use Business Calendar but recommend the newer Google Calendar over the older AOSP if you're choosing between those two.

You can disable Android calendar in app settings and install Google calendar from Google play store. Don't disable android calendar storage. Just clear data in android calendar storage.
