    Default Does Nova Launcher slow down the Samsung Galaxy S3

    So recently, I got Nova Launcher for my S3. However, several weeks later, my phone started to become horrendously slower and laggier even though I haven't downloaded any apps after getting Nova. I asked my friend about this and he told me that TouchWiz is making it slower. I have heard many negative reviews about TouchWiz and was thinking if Touchwiz is really necessary to have on my phone as this friend told me that nothing good comes out of Touchwiz. I really like Nova and want to keep it so can you guys tell me if Nova is in fact ruining my phone's performance or is it from Touchwiz? If it is from Touchwiz, was can I do about it? Please don't say rooting!
    I appreciate all the help and advice!

    Welcome to the forums.
    In my experience, Nova does not slow down the device. You might need to do a system cache wipe in recovery. Here is how: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...2-s3-tab2.html

    Welcome to the forums.
    In my experience, Nova does not slow down the device. You might need to do a system cache wipe in recovery. Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.
