    Yeah, I also no longer use launchers since they just drain out the battery

    I gave up launchers as Samsung brought so much customisation to OneUI.

    What? Not sure what launcher you are talking about but I have never seen a launcher drain the battery. At least not Nova. YMMV

    ..at least they are going to add double tap to sleep...
    Ah, finally I'll get what my Blackberry KEYone had.

    I still have a single empty icon space in the middle of the bottom row, a holdover from those days, hoping to be able to use that space for double tap. I liked it.

    Of course, Samsung solved the problem themselves in OneUI with custom navigation icons that include a sleep icon...

    Until I can add extra home screens on the stock launcher
    Huh?

    I have three home screens. I swipe among them.

    I've never used third-party launchers all that much. I stook to my Pixel Launcher on my Pixel 2 and am pretty obsessed with Samsung's UI, and so I haven't changed that, either.

    That being said, there are a ton of users who crave the differentiation that launchers provide - I don't think they'll be going away anytime soon.

    The other thing I love is how quickly you can set up a new phone, install Nova restore backup and off you go. Seamless.

    That's true. Then your new phone could still have that tried-and-true format. I've seen a few users on AC say the same thing when getting new devices.

    I don’t think 3rd party launchers are going anywhere anytime soon. Until Google lets more customization into their pixel launcher there will continue to be a demand. Lots of things they could let the user do that I won’t get into. I like the stock launcher but prefer my file of stored 3rd party launchers even more. Variety is what having an android phone is all about for me.
