    One of the things I miss with my Nexus 5 was how great it was at "recovering" from a factory reset.

    What I mean by that is, if I ever did a factory reset, my home screen would be restored to exactly how it was. Meaning ask my groups, widgets, and wallpaper would be exactly how I had it. As well as which notification/ringtones we chosen and a few other things. It made restoring your phone exceptionally easy and it was ready to go that much sooner.

    I've reset this phone a few times while trying to add the Google Dialer and being unsuccessful and noticed it never restores itself in the same fashion.

    So my question is. Am I missing something or is that not a feature this phone has?

    settings >> Backup & reset
    turn on " Backup my data "
    and " Automatic restore "
