    Got mine ordered today and it'll be here tomorrow! Can't wait as my Nexus 5 is really on its last legs requiring a couple of reboots a day, appalling battery life, and general niggles that make it so frustrating to use.

    But, my G4 will be here and I can't wait to play with all the cool stuff that it comes with.

    Only one question though, as I've been with Nexus for the last 3 or 4 years - if I install the Google Now launcher will it prevent all of the LG stuff from working? Things like the knock on, or the make a fist to take a photo thing?

    There's loads of cool features in there, but I don't want to be disabling most of them just because I want a launcher that looks and behaves like what I'm used to.

    First thing I did with mine was put Nova launcher on. Best launcher by far from what I've used. I've not used the google one that you mentioned though.

    But yeah, everything still seems to work as should. Hope that helps :)

    Does Knock On and Knock Off still work with Nova Launcher?

    Knock On works but Knock Off works only from the notification bar.

    Huh strange , because the only thing that works with a third party launcher on mine is the knock on. None of the widgets or other little gadgets work at all on Nova or any of the 50 other launchers IV got buried around. But you want to take your phone to a whole nother level go to try out lightning launcher but be prepared to get a workout mentally it's not easy but worth it. You can do literally anything with it especially if you can Script
