    Because the Note series is awesome but the beauty of Android is options.

    It's Nova Prime for me. I tried to stick with TouchWiz and made it about 30 minutes. I like to have 2 docks, 6x6 icons, infinite looping of the home screens and dock. Gestures are also a very useful option. If TouchWiz gave me options, I might stay with it.

    The only thing I really hate about touchwiz is the limitation of a 4x4 grid on the home screen. I use a lot of features in Nova launcher, but the only reason I really felt like I needed it was the 4x4 limit on the default one.
    Agreed. I wonder why they stopped doing 5x5 grids or 5x4(cant remember). I know on the first note it had more.

    Honestly I used Nova on my last Note 3 and decided to give Touchwiz a try since they did some pretty decent updates to it and honestly I haven't experienced any lag or issues with Touchwiz. Now I did download Nova in order to activate the download booster, but haven't used Nova just yet. Overall, it feels pretty smooth!!

    Nova for me. Gave tw a chance, but this screen screams for more than just 4x4 icons. I'm at 5x5, with 7 dock icons. Those were really the only deal breakers for me when it came to touch wiz.

    Do you lose any features when using a different launcher? Multiple windows, s pen features, side bar, finger scanner?

    I left a similar post at another forum last night and it has gone unanswered. I've used Apex Launcher Pro on my N2 and N3 but from what I've read the Touch wiz experience has been improved and want to make sure I'm not going to missing out on something. I really love apex pro as it is so easy to customize the number of icons per page and to resize widgets.

    I have used Nova Launcher forever. I just backed it up on my retired S3 and emailed the config to my Note 4. I like it so much that I just upgraded to Prime! For me it is the overall customization that can be done. for example: I want more Icons on my home screen than Touchwiz can provide! It is free to try and easy to uninstall or even switch between. I feel I owe those guys by spreading the word!! Great App!

    There's only one truly terrible thing about TouchWiz:

    Those creepy smiley faces for default contacts.

    Should Samsung remove that...it would be all good.
    Haha, thats hysterical! I agree as I would rather see no picture, vs. those generic heads!

    Switched to Nova almost immediately. Touchwiz is getting better but still wastes a lot of space.

    For those who stick with touchwiz, good for you. I just can't deal with so few options. I'm 3 days into playing with and setting up my phone which includes changing the way Nova Prime looks and how it handles transitions from screen to screen or when opening apps. It is incredibly fast if you want it to be. I have two home screens, one for all the apps I need quick access to and one for Google Now.
