    Stock Samsung / Touchwiz Launcher.

    While Nova gets battery battery life for me, it isn't enough to warrant using it as even if you have "aggressive desktop" checked, it still redraws when you clear memory. Apex does not do that, but then it leaves the ongoing notification in your notification screen because it's locked into memory. Both are annoying. Launcher redraws on a phone with these specs is lame.

    If there is another launcher out there that isn't filled with bloatware puss that stays locked in memory and provides badge notifications, I'd love to know. I do know that Action, Solo, etc. are not the answer.

    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.
    Na Kelly has had at least the Note 4 and now the 5, I've seen her in a lot of threads.

    I tried Nova and Apex... I might go back to try Nova again but only if the black screen write still works
