    I've never changed my launcher before. Everyone seems to like Nova, so maybe I'll place with it once or twice. But honestly, TouchWiz has never been a bother for me. LoL

    I Am Using Nova Launcher Pro now. Love it. I like the way it locks my icons in place so I can accidentally move them. I just installed it on my wife's S5. I got tired of her moving or deleting widgets or icons by accident. I will try the new TouchWiz when I get the phone but most like go back to Nova Launcher.

    I have grace ux on my note 5. I like it better than Nova or googles launcher. I have had nova on maybe 100 phone models. I'm actually getting tired/bored of it. Samsung is focusing on software. They have a much improved touchwiz, Good Lock and now a clean Grace UX

    I've used Nova Prime on every phone I've owned, but I'll try the latest version of TouchWiz (Grace) before installing Nova Prime on my Note 7.

    Nova. I'll give Grace a try but I like resizing my icons and the gestures Nova offers.

    I love my collection of custom icon packs, so unless the Samsung launcher supports custom icons, it will be Nova all the way.
    According to phonearena the note 7 supports Custom icons out of the box
    Samsung Galaxy Note 7 themes get support for third-party icon packs

    Nova prime. I like the pull down from anywhere and being able to change grid size.

    You can change the grid size a bit with Touchwiz on the Note 7 ..

    I haven't had a Samsung phone with TouchWiz since my Samsung Captivate, so obviously it will have changed a ton since I last used it. I did mess with a Note 7 a little at Best Buy, but not enough to really get a good feel for the launcher. I really like the Google Now Launcher, but I'll give the stock launcher a try to see what I think before deciding if I'll switch.

    I'd like a launcher that places icons on the grid as close to the dock as possible for better one-handed operation. Same for folders: instead of displaying an opened folder in the middle of the screen, push it down the screen a bit. This would basically mimic my iPhone home screen:

    Can you tell me what icon pack you used here? It looks very nice. Thanks

    On my Edge 7, I tried to like Nova on it, because it seemed like I was supposed to prefer it...but always went back to Touchwiz. Something about the Google search bar on Touchwiz looks slimmer than I'm able to get it on any other launcher . It's always too thick on Nova and others. In addition, I like the fact that Touchwiz does not automatically alphabetize aps as soon as I download them, because to me, this makes it harder to find new apps whose names I don't rtemember yet. The only thing that I've wished was the ability to use custom icon packs. However, it's my understanding that starting with Note 7, we'll be able to use the icon packs from any theme from the theme store, without forcing us to use the other theme elements. So if I like one theme's overall look, but prefer the icons from a different pack, I'll be able to customize the look of my phone. I really see no reason to use a launcher other than Grace UX.

    You know there is an option to freeze screen in Nova right?

    I use 7x5 in Nova. Does Touchwiz support that? I'm serious not being flippant

    No. I think 5 X 5 might be the most, I can't remember. I like Touchwiz now honestly overall though. I used to use other launchers, no longer ..

    Yes that is why I like Nova Launcher! That is why I installed it on my wife's phone. The lock saved me a lot of head aches with her phone.

    I misunderstood. I thought you meant that was happening in Nova. I'm always messing with my screens so I don't use the feature. I've tried but always end up shutting it off then curse when my weather widget turns up on some other screen

    As long as the Edge features and S-Pen apps work (all the S-Pen apps worked on my Note 5 fine, obviously didn't have Edge features to try) I will go Nova Launcher Prime. Love the icon layout, folders, shortcuts and gestures. Nova rocks.

    Probably not. Touchwiz has gotten much better over the years. I wrote off Samsung for 2 years, waiting for touchwiz to improve or go away. With the S7, I was very pleased after spending time with it. And by the looks of the Note 7, it's improved again. I guess I'll see when I get my hands on it.

    I'm guessing that using the edge features may require touch wiz?

    If not I prefer the Google launcher. I really like having Now as my left screen. I will give Grace a shot though, doesn't look that bad.

    I hate TouchWiz, so I'm definitely sticking with Nova. Once you get used to all the extra options and settings, being without them feels like a huge hindrance.
