Is it worth changing your layouts to this if the most you have is one nested layout?

I've been using constraint layout for a while in our project. For most cases, I must say it is the best layout and helps reduce most nested layout levels. On some low-end phones, the FPS of some layout animations increases from 20-30 to 50 or so due to far fewer nested view groups. Simply amazing!

I am going to give it a test. If it works as expected, its gold for me.

Seriously, constraint layout looks good, but when you try it, it's just a pain in the ass

ConstraintLayout is not for the faint of heart. Pulled my hair out just to recreate a simple relative layout with 10 or so widgets and the result wasn't satisfactory.

I tried using the ConstraintLayout, but it was a total mess. Do you know that it automatically uses LEFT and RIGHT margins and constraints instead of START and END and then immediatly shows you a warning? If you change it manually, the constraint editor doesnt use the start and end values.
