    To be honest, I'm merely curious.
    Do most Note 5 owners use the TouchWiz launcher or the Nova Prime launcher?

    I just read a thread, where apparently one can't post Notes to the home screen, if using Nova Prime or other launchers, other than TouchWiz. Hence this thread.

    I'm looking forward to everyone's comments...

    I use Nova Prime, since I went over to Android. It's been installed on every phone and tablet for me. I'm not a heavy s-pen user (yet) so I can't speak to the issue you mention. My advice - try it and if you don't like it you can always switch back to TW.

    I have used nova in the past, but nowadays i use the stock launcher. Touchwiz is a lot better than it used to be, and for me i dont need a diff launcher.

    Nova Prime, imo it is the best. So many options. Really wakes the phone up.

    Sent from my Note 5 that I said I wouldn't get but now that I have it I love it.

    I have a note 10.1 2014, tab 4, note 3 and 4...they all have nova prime. This is the only one running all stock. With the themes and speed, I haven't felt the need for Nova. I haven't even changed animations to speed anything up. This thing just works out of the box. It.just.works!

    Nova Prime for a long long time. I used Launcher Pro before that.

    I used Nova previously but honestly, this new version of TouchWiz isn't that bad. I'm sticking with it for now.

    I use Nova Prime because I like the gestures. I love the ability to make folders look like single apps and then I can swipe on them to open up and show the rest of the apps inside. I also like swiping down on my home screen to reveal the notification shade. And I setup a gesture to double tap the screen to do an app search. These few features make it hard for me to use anything else.

    Agree with this. Gestures add so much functionality. I have a swipe up set to Google now. Swipe down to bring down the notification shade. Such a tall phone it makes a big difference. You can also hide apps in the app draw. Lots of more features overall.

    I use Nova Prime because like someone else said before you can lock the screens so you don't unintentionally move or delete apps with your fingers. ..

    Nova hands down. Touch Wiz may be way better than before, but there are so many customized and easy functions inside Nova (few have been mentioned here already) that it really does make the phone a joy to use. I have had it on my Note 3 and Note 5 since day one and will not use TW because it's just not as feature rich.

    Rather tempting for me to try TouchWiz again. I bought my device, and within minutes to turning it on, the first app installed was Nova Prime...

    Always used Nova Prime in the past but wouldn't touch it now...Heres why:

    1. Nova customer service for a USA based app sucks....They never respond.

    2. Many badge counts no longer work at all in Nova Prime running their badge count app...OR it says I have 3,829 unread messages when I have zero.

    My badge counts work just fine on my Note 3 and 5. Never had a need to contact support. Just saying....

    It was just mentioned but I too have absolutely no issues using any of the S Pen features while using Nova Pro. I like all the customization that you can do with Nova that just isnt there yet with stock. I used Touch Wiz for the first week and then changed over to Nova and never looked back!!!

    If facebook is in a folder, the unread count for the folder will show double.

    For example, I have facebook and words with friends in the same folder. If I have a wwf notification, it'll show as 1 on the folder. Add a facebook notification, and the folder now shows 4...double the total.

    The first hangouts message I received, it showed 999 unread.

    Until yesterday, I had switched to Textra... then my wife sent me a text that had the number 60 in it.... icon showed 60 unread.

    The unread badges are very buggy... and though it may not affect you, these are known issues experienced (and reported) by many.

    Making folders look like a single app and swiping to open it, isn't that action launcher's feature? Don't think nova has that..
