    I've downloaded the Material Design theme for TouchWiz and I have Google Now Launcher loaded and am going to give them both a try...

    Reason? Impact on battery?

    Google Now Launcher was the first thing I downloaded when I got the Note 5. Adding the Material Dark theme and I'm a happy camper. I came from a Nexus 5 so I was already used to it and I preferred the stock look over touchwiz. I haven't really used any other launchers, though

    Cool...any battery drain running another launcher over a stock launcher?

    I've tried the Google Now Launcher, however there's one teeny tiny petty annoyance I can't get past. And that's the inability to set the default home screen to any panel/screen. It's always the left most screen, and I don't like that. The way I organize my home screens, I prefer the center panel to be the default.

    That's one of the reasons I stick with Nova Launcher. As well Nova has a very small imprint and doesn't gouge battery performance.

    I have the Google Now launcher along with Touchwiz. I switch between them both. No issues with either one.

    There's really no particular reason why.... I will see an article on Drippler talking about different launchers and if it looks cool I will give it a try..... For a couple days and end up uninstalling it.

    Hmm. Haven't used it without google now launcher so I can't really say if I noticed any battery drain. I also don't watch the battery usage or check if I got 3 vs 4 hours of screen on time. I can get through the day without needing to recharge and that's good enough for me. I also keep things like bluetooth and GPS on always. I work 10 or more hours per day and am down to around 40% I think. My nexus 5 was usually below 20% by the end of a work day
