    Do you lose any features or extras when changing the launcher?

    The only thing you lose are some of the Samsung widgets, such as the calendar widgets. Everything else still works--S pen, multi window, etc.

    Most reviews say TouchWiz has been cleaned up quite nicely. I'll probably stick with it for quite awhile.

    The 4 by 4 icons are annoying though.

    Why do icons need to take up so much space? The score widget for example takes up too much space for such a small widget

    Nova Prime here since day1. Is it normal that when you press the recent app button, the animation is not so smooth?The google hangouts also tend to do the same. Feels like bloated.

    Yes. It will trip Knox and void it.

    Yes, it will trip knox, however, your warranty may not be void if Samsung determines that a problem with your phone had nothing to do with root.

    The Note 4 has been rooted. Now that the carriers are releasing their variants, those will be rooted within days of release as well--they just need some files off of them.
    Not for the verizon and att models due to their locked bootloader. The root method available right now requires an unlocked bootloader. A new exploit will need to be found for these which will likely take a long while.
    Anyway, touchwiz and nova launcher for me.

    Yep and only difference is you can't see Facebook notifications in terms of showing you have 1 notification for example

    If you buy Nova Prime and install the unread counter add-on you can.

    I use Facebook but I'm just used to notifications not working on that app lol. They have been borked pretty much since the app came out. The Android Facebook app just sucks in general. I use it for occasional news feed browsing and that's it. I go to the mobile browser to read comments since the app doesn't organize comment replies.

    I think Samsung phones have got a lot more going for them (like the hardware) than touchwiz. Surely that's why people like Android over iOS; if you don't like the software out the box you can change it.

    Icon Changer Free. It allows you to download and icon pack and change stock icons without a different launcher.

    I've been using go launcher for awhile but it's been getting laggy with recent updates. So I switched to nova and has been running smoothly. But I'm going to give touchwiz a chance when I get the note 4.

    Switched to Nova in less than 30 minutes. Was very easy to restore my previously save settings & layout from my S3.
