    I agree. I've tried many different launchers and always come back to Nova. The customization is great, and it just seems more smooth and stable than all of the other launchers I've tried.

    Themes and icons, smoother, and the ability to scale down widgets and icons are at the top of my list.

    Nova fan too - Two more huge pluses for me - 6x7 grid size, backup of nova settings,...

    Nova, but you can just download it and play with it. You will also need the Telsa unread message notification module as well...

    I used Nova and switched to Aviate last month. I like it better.

    I have used so many launchers and Nova is by far my favorite. If you want something more unique though. TSF Launcher was pretty fun

    Nova Prime is the best IMO...most stable, consistent, plenty of custom options...

    Don't really care for it. All my devices until my N5 had 4 screens. The GEL on my N5 I couldn't get used to having Now on the left, and needing to have an icon on every page I wanted to have.
    Came down to I wanted control over my home screens.

    Not a stupid question at all! The best reason for a different launcher is to customize your phone. There are tons of themes and icons available in the play store, but you can't use them on touchwiz, you have to have a different launcher activated on your phone. You can change the grid size (how many icons you have in each column/row), the size of the icons, have widgets overlap each other, create folders inside your app drawer, edit your dock or hide it completely, and lots of other customization options. Like many others have said, nova is just a Very smooth launcher. It has a great range of features and really allows you to tweak your phone!

    Yeah been using it for under a day now and love the extra options. More pages is great too.

    The gestures are very good too.. I've got the kit kat theme at the moment

    How do you Change themes?

    Nova! I think touchwiz is a waste of screen real estate on this phone and makes it look like a child's toy.

    If you are going for something highly customizable, I have tried them all and it is Nova hands down. Nova is easy to use, the settings are easy to understand, and the amount of customization and how fluent it all is, is fantastic. If you are going for something different, or something simpler let me suggest Aviate. I just picked it up and I think I really like it. It simplifies your home screens and learns from you patterns to suggest the correct apps at the correct times and places. It is still in beta, but feels very polished. It does take some time to sit down and set up all of your app categories, but after that there is minimal managing of apps.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...com.tul.aviate

    If you want to give it a shot, give me a holler and I will send you a beta code.

    I had a Note 2 for a while and used Nova exclusively, being able to make the app grids larger and the icons smaller made the phone feel more tablet like and used the screen real estate much more effectively.
