    Default Galaxy S5: Anyone Replace Touch Wiz With Nova Launcher Yet?

    Wondering if this speeds up the performance or hampers it.

    Any other issues with switvching launchers?

    Or replacing the stock keyboard with Swiftkey?

    I'm using Nova with the stock Nova Scroll & Animations speeds and it seems equal to or a little faster than touch wiz. It is much faster if you adjust the scroll & animation speeds up. I personally don't like them at the highest speed. Can't help with Swiftkey as I'm currently using google keyboard.

    Using swiftkey and Nova Prime and have very good results. IDK if I would say it's much faster but I do find it easier to use

    Using Nova Launcher, no problems as far as I can tell. I use Swype instead of SwiftKey.

    Go into the developer settings and turn off all animations and then in Nova launcher set animations to speed of light. Your welcome. Enjoy

    That was the first thing I did was to install nova and turn off all developer options for animations. Fast! Using Google keyboard

    yeah, running Nova after playing with stock TouchWiz for the first couple days! really liked what Samsung has done here but Nova has been home for me for quite a while now and I love the options available to me! It ran well on the GS4 but it is amazing on the S5! And you can make your phone pretty much ANYTHING you like!

    Cheers

    I installed Nova with the model in the store... And it ran really good!! I was gonna pick it up but they were out of the black... Sooo.. that left me time to the M8.. and once again... I'm confused... But I do know I can set up the GS5 to be as smooth as sense now

    Quick question to anyone who is using NOVA with the S5: does the My Magazine app still work in a "swipe left" capacity if you download Nova?

    may i ask if you are able to put an analog clock on your Lock Screen with your Nova Launcher?

    one of my personal pet peeves is that i really enjoy having a decent sized analog clock on my Lock Screen.

    thanks in advance. look forward to your answer.
