    We're all different in some way. I've tried all the launchers mentioned above. I decided to stick with the stock version😀

    Adegbenro Agoro. Galaxy Note 4.
    Same here, have nova prime, apex pro and have tried aviate, action launcher, google now but the fluid experience and great battery life i get on touchwiz is great.
    Only gripe is 4 by 4 grid but this can be solved by folders on dock and home so everything is easily accesible.
    I think touchwiz has come long way and i gave up on google keyboard too use stock now. Each to their own.

    I still like Go Launcher better than any of the alternatives (and I've pretty much tried them all). Just personal preference.

    How great is it that Android users get to choose their own private user interface? It's just one of many things I like about this OS.

    I've used Dodol launcher with "Iron Man" theme for a while and really like it. I have no speed complaints from the launcher. Recently I added about 4 other theme's icons. Plus Beautiful Widgets weather widget, Jorte calendar widget and a live WP for a little splash of life.

    I use solo launcher too and love it...however after upgrading to lollipop, the gestures don't work expanding the notification shade. I had swipe down to expand notifications. Have you found a way to get it to work again?

    I have used Nova Prime for a few years. It is still my go to launcher. I have tried many others and always come back to it. I have used stock on the Note 4 more than I usually do though. I have only had the Note 4 for a couple weeks so I am still in that early stage of moving things around and experimenting with different set ups.

    Aviate. I swapped it out for Touchwiz and never looked back. Simple and clean.

    I normally go straight for Google Now and did with the Note 4 as well but I find myself using TouchWiz most of the time. Only had my Note for exactly 1 week today though!

    As far as free launchers go, I suggest Apex. You get a lot for not having to pay a dime where w/ Nova, you need to buy it to get a good amount of useful stuff like gestures. I used Nova for a couple years now I ventured to Apex and haven't had a single issue. I like it.

    I just never use launchers. I bought Apex a few years ago and used it a while with my Galaxy S and have tried it and others, on all my Note series phones. I tend to experience too much lag with a launcher.

    I have used the Next Launcher for several years and on several devices. I'm a huge fan of its versitiliy and ease of use. I don't pay for many apps but I will pay for a good launcher and, in my experience, the Next Launcher is about as good as they come. Have never used Nova/Nova Prime so, perhaps, I don't know what I'm missing.

    I use Apex. I love how I can swipe to scroll through the bottom buttons without moving screens. I'm sure other launchers can do the same but Apex is the first launcher I've ever used.

    Still on Nova Prime 4.0.2. In fact, I have not begun to fully utilize it yet. Just did a simple layout. That's all.

    Lolipop launcher since a few months now, very customizable and clean. Google launcher is about the same style. The google bar stays on screen even with every flip of the page.

    What did you mean by great battery life? Do you actually notice a difference among launchers? I could see Google Launcher taking more batter bc of Now, but Nova vs Stock I would think is identical for battery use.

    Sounds to me like you're using devices that are several years old. The OP was originally asking for his Note® 4, on which one will never experience lag, no matter the launcher. Heck I never saw lag on my old Note® Ⅱ either, haven't seen any at all in fact since my very first device (the venerable GT-i9000… aah, those were the days) purchased back in 2010.

    For reference this is an alphabetical list of launchers mentioned in this thread… as it so happens, there are 10 of 'em, so this is the unofficial Android Central list of best launchers, 2015 edition :

     • Action
     • Apex *
     • Apus
     • Aviate
     • Dodol
     • Go!
     • Google Now *
     • Next *
     • Nova *
     • Solo

    Ones with the “ * ” asterisk were mentioned the most.

    I second Apex. I use it when I get bored with GNL. I usually go back and forth very few months just to maintain the screens...
