    Touchwiz here. After a year of playing so much with my note 3 and constantly customizing, I'm ready to enjoy this beautiful phone as it can out of the box with some minor tweaks. It's so much better than the 3 I really don't feel the need to change it yet. Even after a week. Tried Google now launcher but the icons are just too big. Made the phone look and feel geriatric.

    Just got my phone tonight. It installed Nova launcher while in was checking out in Best Buy so, I only used TW long enough to enter my Google account info.

    I use Go Launcher (as well as go sms, contacts, and locker XD) just cause I can get cute themes, TBH.

    I've always loved playing with different launchers. Let me ask you all something though. In other proprietary android launchers( Sense specifically) if you use a separate launcher, you lose widget functionality. Are there any must-have things in Touch-Wiz that I would miss out on going to another launcher?

    Just Samsung based widgets like a health and their normal calendar. All the main s pen features will still work fine.

    I am using Nova and I have found that the little pin/tack on the action memo is not there so you can pin things to your home screen. Someone on another thread said to just minimize the note so it stays floating on you screen.

    I can't speak to the 4 yet, as I haven't had enough time to play with it, but I can say that on the Note 2, some of the interesting TouchWiz features and widgets such didn't work if you used an alternative launcher, especially some of the S Pen abilities.

    That being said, I'm giving TouchWiz a chance on the 4, but I'll probably hop back over to Nova Prime for the customization factor within a few days.
    I tried to use touchwiz and was able to go about 30 minutes before I had to change to Nova. I haven't found any functionality missing from the phone at this point (all s pen functions work correctly) and if you have ever used Nova, you know the functionality you gain.

    Depends if you use the Samsung widgets. You can give more apps on each page on nova but it's fit fine in what I've done on my 7 pages

    Giving TouchWiz a chance. By the way, anyone know how to do homepage continuous scrolling?

    Can't be done on touchwiz as far as I know, it's one of the reasons I go with Nova.

    Nova for sure. Soon as I purchase a phone within a few minutes I install Nova. Nothing better, I've tried a ton of different launchers.

    Exactly same thing here. I tried. Nova is just too good. I liked Holo as well but Nova just had a couple more things.

    I did download Nova but it just doesn't seem as smooth and Touchwiz. So I would have to agree. But now I need a good app for wallpaper.

    Apex Launcher for me. I need an on screen unread email count & Apex with Apex Notifications gives me that. Plus some Apex custom functionality, it makes my G-Note 4 rock!

    go to home screen setting and uncheck flipboard briefing. Now you can scroll continuously through home pages.

    I tried the Google Now launcher and it doesn't seem to be any faster and the icons are huge. I will be going back to TW.

    Nova is by far the best to me.

    You also get all the touchwiz features and widgets on nova.
