    If you install Nova Launcher, you can import your work into Nova. Then you can save a backup of you Nova settings and transfer that to your new phone.

    I don't think you can do that with TouchWiz. Some 3rd party launchers allow you to save the homescreen/app drawer setup, like Nova Launcher.

    As soon as you install Apex or Nova it should give you a prompt.

    As far as I know, you can only import other Nova Launcher setups into Nova Launcher. You can't import your current TouchWiz setup.

    Well, I have never done it myself, but this screenshot of the default screen after nova launcher is installed:

    makes me think its possible to import from another launcher.

    Ah, interesting! Have you tried it yourself? I wonder if it can do so from any launcher, or perhaps from a select group of 3rd party launchers?

    EDIT: Yeah, I totally spoke too soon. This is from the app page: "Import Layout - No need to rebuild your desktop from scratch, Nova Launcher can import from most popular launchers. Including the one that came with your phone." But the don't specify exactly which launchers.

    The message here is that even after 23,000 posts, there are still things you can learn.

    I've never tried it myself, because I installed Nova the first day I had my first android phone, and I have moved Nova settings from phone to phone with each upgrade since then. I just remembered seeing that screen.

    Yup. I also still have to learn to keep my big trap shut until I'm sure of what I'm typing!

    You can import from touchwiz to Nova, but i think the issue you're going to run into is getting your setup from Nova back to touchwiz, I can't think of a way to do that. OP are you using touchwiz? Also you have to recreate any widgets you're using, those do not import. You only get a placeholder of the grid size the widget was occupying

    You could probably fly through the setup pretty fast if you just keep your old phone as reference, im pretty sure touchwiz lets you bulk select apps to put into folders. As far as app drawer goes, i think you just have to go in there and spend some time re-doing that :/

    I don't think you can, but once he has his setup in Nova, he could just keep using Nova. It's very nice.
