    I never used a launcher on my Samsung note 4 I got use to TouchWiz. Please help me out, what Launcher should try? I noticed some of the launcher apps are a bit costly. I also worry about it slowing down my phone. Thank you

    I'm a big fan of Action Launcher 3 - it's very fast and smooth, it introduces new and efficient usage ideas that are easy to assimilate,and it's generally a great combination of new and familiar,with a ha baseline of high performance.

    I use Nova on my Note 4, Nexus 7, and TF700T tablet. It is highly customizable and I have not seen any performance impacts from it on any of my devices.

    Nova Prime here... Every now and again I'll switch to Aviate just for a change but that only lasts for a few hours. Have seen no performance drags with any launcher, only moderate battery consumption out of Aviate.

    TW will be disabled for as long as you use the "Other" launcher. You can, however, switch back to TW very easliy in default applications from settings menu

    Yes and no.

    Your homescreens are presented by the launcher you choose (I'm a big Nova Prime fan myself, because I like having more icons on my home screen and being able to have ONE home screen). So that feature of TouchWiz is still in the background but not visible to you since the home screen button launches your new launcher app instead.

    However, this doesn't affect any of the other features of TouchWiz. The launcher doesn't affect pulldown notifications, configuration settings, S-Pen detection, S-Health, S-Voice, AirCommand, and all the other TouchWizardry that is out there. In order to disable all of that, you'd need a new operating system, not just a new launcher.

    totally agree with you, I used Nova all the time, but thought I should branch out more and now I'm using Action Launcher 3 - love the quick slide option on the right where you can hide apps and stuff.

    Nova Launcher Prime for me. I've tried just about every launcher there is, and try new ones as I see them, but I always keep coming back to Nova. The speed, ease of customization, amount of effects, and other touches just keep it #1 for me.

    I use L Launcher since it gives the Lollipop feel and it has a neat left side panel that can be accessed anywhere...

    Next launcher 3D is the best I've ever seen! It doesn't slow down my Note 4 one bit and is beautiful. It has so many different addons too choose from you will love it! All the others listed so far are good but next launcher 3d is the top of the line IMO. I tried spb shell and its pretty to look at but not really functional. Next launcher total functionality.

    I have six to eight of the most popular launchers on my Note 3, Nova Prime, Apex Pro. I always go back to Next Launcher 3D Shell. For me as a power business user I need the productivity of ToDo List, Calendar, other widgets, etc. that come with Next 3D Shell. Nova Prime, Apex and some of the others maybe better price performers but for customizing the maximum widgets and icons Next is just over the top for efficiency and they are updating with new features every month or two. Next is also extremely fast and always stable.

    For day to day productivity of a power user and business professional Next is what I really use. That is just comparing 2D vs 2D, the 3D side of Next is another step in the UI world but it uses the same menu and navigation structure. Some of the 3D aficionados would not even consider a launcher with only a 2D side. If money is tight and you can live without some of the features, widgets, not interested in a 3D User Interface then Nova will probably be good enough, but............

    Next 3D Shell is the Cadillac of Launchers right now and as you can see it comes with a Cadillac price but as a power user it is worth the extra money because I depend on the Calendar, ToDo List and other PIM widgets so much.

    I was a Nova freebie user for a while then went ahead and got the Nova Prime to support the developer as well as open up new options.

    I have tried several others, but keep coming by to the Google launcher. I love having Google now as my left most screen, and I find it to be an attractive choice as well.
