    I really like the note 4 a lot. I'm new to android and I'm really scared of touchwiz to be honest. Is it really as bad as they put it out to be?

    You will get different answers from different people. Some love it, some hate it, and some (like me) don't know what all the TW fuss is about. Only way to know is to try it for yourself, imo. If u don't like it, try a different launcher to you find what u like. Android has so many options there's bound to be something for everyone. ;-)

    I have a galaxy tab 4 and I put Nova launcher and so far I like it. I just heard about all lag touchwiz causes but I doubt that it will on such a fast phone. Thanks for the feedback!

    It's subjective. I don't mind it but some people absolutely despise it. I've had HTC's, LG's Samsung's and Nexus. They all have their own perks and quirks. While I am a fan of the pure Android that my nexus tablet has, I like the features touchwiz adds to my phones. But again, it's all about personal preference. What platform are you coming from?

    As who puts it out to be? It depends on what you want your phone to do. If you want your phone to be "clean" and to the point, and open your games/social media/etc. 1 millisecond faster, then TW might not be for you. If you use your phone as a productivity tool and utilize the things TW adds, then you will like TW as I do. You can always add a custom launcher to get rid of the face of TW.

    If you are scared or even skeptical, my advice don't get one! The rest of us are trampling over everything to get our mitts on a Note 4.

    iOS.... I'm sick and tired of it. It was good when I was younger but now that I go to college I need more functionality and Android is just plain cooler.

    It definitely isn't as simplistic as iOS, but that is a good thing. You'll be fine. Just go for it and enjoy. Just take it slow and YouTube will be your friend. The forums are a great resource as well.

    I like it overall. I've used pure Android, Sense, and Touchwiz. They all have their pluses. With the Note Touchwiz is great and it adds all of the s-pen functionality. Personally I like it.

    As others said it really isn't that bad.. It used to be... But not anymore... And you can always install another Launcher if it really bothers you .

    TOUCHWIZ IS AMAZING

    I have a Note 2 since launch, and used every launcher but stuck with Touchwiz. My fiancee with her S2, brothers with S4's, my mom with S5 and younger brother with S3(N4 this Tuesday), and several uncles and aunts with S5's as well, we all use touchwiz and have never complained about it.

    Never lagged for me, and I find it's features nice. Likewise with the Note4, I will be sticking with Touchwiz (which has become even better it seems from reviews so far).

    Go for it.

    It's very much subjective. I have always despised it but many people love it. Have you gone to Best Buy to look at a demo version?

    To be honest it's mostly the colors and animations that I don't like

    It used to be pretty bad, and people love to hate it. This time around it doesn't seem bad at all, and you can change just about any aspect of it that you don't like.

    Don't listen to what most people say about TouchWiz. I've used it for years and it fantastic.

    There isn't any lag really on the new Samsung flagships.

    My S5 Active has some lag. It's not really bad lag but it's a little slower around the corners than my M8. I think it really comes down to personality. The lag is minimal and people who are not OCD won't be as bothered by it as those of us who are. That's why I venture to say the lag isn't even perceived by many. That being said I still pre-ordered the N4. I'll just root it and remove as much clutter as possible.

    No issues with TouchWiz. Like others have said, install Nova and enjoy the rest of the features Samsung added. IMO, the multi-tasking and SPen features are an incredible benefit over stock Android. After using a Note 2 for 2 years, I no longer consider any phones that don't have these two features (and the larger screen).

    I have never had an issue with touchwiz lag, but dislike the appearance and some apps that I won't use. However there is Apex launcher which I will use and root to do everything else.
