    Have Touchwiz on my N2 since release. Note 4's touchwiz looks even better. Keeping it.

    Touchwiz has improved since I had my S4, so I plan on giving it a shot.

    I don't have a problem with Touchwiz, at this point. I've had it on my GS3 since day one. Unless there are some MAJOR issues, I don't see myself changing.

    Touchwiz has always worked fine for me as well. I see no need to mess with it.

    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.

    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.

    Ok keep us up to date if u switch... My only thing about touchwiz is the icon size and type, If I could use icon pack with touchwiz I would never remove it

    You could check out beautiful icon Styler. It lets you theme your home screens using any purchased icon packs. Unfortunately it doesnt theme the app drawer icons, but it gives your home some class.

    I liked it on my S3. And I will be keeping it on the Note 4.

    I looked at other phones without touchwiz and purported to be "closer" to stock but I found them quite lacking. For example, and this is just one of many, with touchwiz I can swipe then click to toggle a number of radio settings (wifi, bluetooth, GPS) but on other phones need to swipe swipe then click which gets old after a while.

    Think will keep touchwiz for me. Use the new s pen features better.

    I don't have it but I doubt I'll get it for more than an hour. I love LG's UI, IMO it's the best stock but I love my Nova Prime and it's Gestures.

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

    It's coming off immediately. Nova will be the first app I install. Can't stand having all the space the Note offers without using it. Multiple columns and rows for me.

    I like TouchWiz but ever since I had a nexus 5 I love the Google now launcher and even side loaded the apk onto my note 3 before Google made it avaliable to any phone with Android 4.4

    I will probably try out touchwiz but I like how I have more apps per page on the Google now launcher

    Not to be a snob, but are we talking about launchers or ROMs? TouchWiz is a ROM and we are stuck with it until someone figures out how to root the note 4 and builds a custom rom for it.

    As far as launchers go, I'll save my settings in Nova on my sd card, and import those settings to the Note 4 as soon as I start using it. You keep all the futures of TouchWiz and get a better launcher.

    Now, I'm probably one of the only people who is going to get the phone and put it away in a drawer for a while.... I'll wait until someone roots the note so I can remove or disable carrier iq and remove some att bloatware. I just couldn't pass up the trade in promo.

    The only thing that stops me from using the Google Now Launcher on my Note 3 is how big the icons are. Way too big.

    When people talk about touchwiz it probably means the ui skin and not the actual ROM. I also think people have an issue with the skin in general when you change the ROM

    changing it as soon as i get home from BB friday. when i had my s3 replaced a few months ago, i literally sat in the sprint store with it after closing along with the cleaning guys setting up my usual launcher just to make sure i had the same setup before turning the old one in. i'm nuts though, my screens have to be as minimalistic as possible with only a few tiny icons. touchwiz just...aggravates my ocd.

    When my Note comes in Wednesday that'll be one of the first things I do. Nova Launcher Prime is must! Sexy, Speedy, Gestures, Dock, Resizing, Animations, and all the other glorious things that come with it.

    Even if I liked the look of touchwiz, I would use Nova Launcher and download a touchwiz theme. Doesnt seem like it makes sense but gestures are totally worth it IMO.
