    My 6.1 updated last night. It added a hideous search bar to my homescreen that is impossible to simply disable by default. Apparently I need a third party launcher... why, google. Why. It was fine the way it was. I don't want this clutter.

    Just snagged a Nokia 8 Steel for a touch under $285. Yes last year's model, yes no Android One but also nearly $50 cheaper than I paid for my Nokia 6 (2017). I shared with ozbargain - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/416283

    i've seen this too, i'm sure it's a "bug" they will "fix" in a future update. By then people will be used to using it and job done.

    I gave up and restarted my phone as it had been laggy ever since it started nagging me to update and now am stuck with this layout :(

    Also the bar with the day and weather at the top seems to be stuck as well?

    I might be imagining things but on the 6.1 with Pie the camera seems to be a lot less clunky and works it out in low light a lot better.
