    Haven't used it in years. What functions will I be missing using Nova Prime? Will I lose spen features, edge panels, edge lighting, etc.?

    You will miss none of those that you just mentioned. You still get those plus gain all the features from Nova. Just try it.

    Like they said, you'll lose none of the features you listed. I'd encourage you to dig through Nova's settings. Every nook and cranny, and take your time. See what the launcher is capable of. And once you've got your setup, backup to Google Drive. Makes setting up your next device WAY easy.

    I've been using Nova for years I use it on my Note 20 Ultra now and all of those features are available still anytime I try not to use it I always go back to it because I like the ability to customize the icons size shape shadowing everything else in between it's just a really nice feature to have

    Right now I'm trying to make myself go back to nova because I miss being able to use the icon pack studio app ( it doesn't work with one ui). I've gotten so used to One UI and how it works. I never thought that would happen. Lol

    Trying action launcher... seems like a good pixel launcher replacement. Trying to break down the barriers to keep new from exchanging my new Samsung for a pixel 5.

    One can do that now with Nova. I too use Nova on my 5GU. When I go left that's my Google News Screen. That was enabled a year or so ago-ish. HTH

    Is it built in or did you have to sideload?

    Integrated. I assume it's on all versions now enough though this says beta. But I've been in their beta program for years.

    I don't have that integration... guessing you sideload the module that integrates at some point?

    I just installed it.

    I never had any integration so I downloaded/activated Sesame first. Then googled/side loaded it.

    Worked great. Under integration on Nova, settings can be changed.

    I've been using Nova Launcher since my S8, Note 8 and now N20U with no loss of features whatsoever.
    I'm not sure how useful Sesame is though, since I've already paid for Nova Prime.

    It is quite useful when you get used to it. Usually we go to an specific app (browser, YouTube, Spotify, app drawer ...) and then type a search. With Sesame it's the other way around. You trigger the search with a gesture, type and then select where you want to make the search. Quick and powerful, worth a try.

    Anyone have scrolling wallpaper working on any of these launchers? I'm using action launcher atm, but the scrolling wallpaper option does not work... Wondering if it's still that thing where it's broken for all custom launchers?

    Good to hear. Thanks everyone. Been good with Samsung's UI these past few years but got the itch to change things up a little more again so I'll play with Nova again.

    This isn't part of Nova beta by default. I had to install from Novas site. Version 1.1 is the latest but hasn't been updated since 2017. So far works fine tho.

    My current setup with Nova Prime..

    I like the hideaway notification bar setting and also hide the navigation bar (not sure if it's goodlock or system setting)

    You only gain customization possibilities using Nova..

    I've been tinkering with Lawnchair v2 lately.. They're onto something but always find myself reverting back to Nova.

    I can't deal with Samsung's One UI

    Nice. Here's mine.

    I don't have any issues with One UI just wanted to tinker a little more with Nova again.
