    as long as you can find a analog clock widget you like you can use it on a Nova lock screen

    I use Nova too, but am looking to switch to Solo Launcher or Inspire Launcher.

    I used Swiftkey on my S4 now using it on my S5 and it seems to work much smoother, but then again the whole phone has a smoother opertation to it.

    No it doesn't but there are steps you can take to access touchwiz as an app... Getting u right to my magazine... I do this now with my M7 to get me to BlinkFeed..

    In nova create a short cut.. Then chose activities and then find touchwiz.. and that creates a touchwiz icon for quick access

    I'm also using the latest version of Nova Prime on my Exynos Version SM-G900H .... So far been having worse battery drain... Anyone else experiencing this ?

    I don't think I noticed worse batter drain on previous devices and I'm planning on setting up Nova soon, would love to hear everyones thoughts on battery life differences between the two.

    Have a question along the same lines:
    Thinking of getting the S5 and immediately replacing touchwiz with much prefered nova, however I read that the there is an impact on camera performance as only the touchwiz camera app produces the great photos we see with the S5.
    Anyone have experience with this?
    Many thanks!

    My pictures come out identical regardless of TW or Nova. Once the camera app is opened the launcher is irrelevant. If I'm wrong someone point it out but I take the same great pictures regardless of launcher used. This camera is incredible in daylight settings. Best overall camera I've used.

    The camera app is the same whether or not you install Nova. Same with all the Touchwiz dialer, contacts, etc. The only thing you lose with Nova are some widgets and you can't launch Google Now from the home screen by saying "OK Google" (you have to long press the Home button to start Google Now and then say "OK Google").

    Many thanks Cobravision, that is great news! Looks like I may be getting an S5 after all, it really is a great all-rounder.

    I want to use Nova, but the stock clock/weather widget isn't available (which I could do without) but for some reason the stock Calendar widget doesn't work either! It just shows the day/date, not the full month view like the TW calendar does.

    Nope. But there are a ton of clock and weather widgets you can install.

    Nova prime is the first thing that happens to any of my Samsung phones.

    Man, after reading your thoughts on the Nova Launcher, I just installed it. This launcher is really cool!!! It really cleaned up the look of the phone! I still wish I could figure out how to make the google search bar something other than the grey shaded thing.

    Delete that and go into Nova settings for appearance and select the clear search bar. Then go into widgets and select "quick search." It'll be the clear search bar.

    Will the multitask bar on the left on the S5 still work with Nova installed?

    Has anyone had any issues installing the Nova Launcher on their S5?

    My phone is repeatedly asking 'Complete action using' Nova Launcher of TouchWiz over and over for the same apps, despite clicking 'Always' every time.

    You can. Disable it, add Zooper widget and create your own.

    Just started using Nova Launcher a few days ago and I really like it. What I do not like is that whatever you set the wallpaper to on NL, it changes the TouchWiz wallpaper too! Is there a way to override that problem?
