    Twiz works just fine for me. The only other launcher I ever use is Arrow. When I want a touch of Microsoft.

    I gave TW the better part of a day and then had to switch back to Nova Prime. With Nova I even turned off the edge screen. There is just no reason for me to use the edge when I can have everything I want/need on screen with Nova. Too many customization options for me to do without.

    I do like some of TW new features, just not enough to stay. Functionality wins out every time.

    Nope. TW doesn't bother me in the least. And it's not like it goes away when you use a new launcher. You're just piling one on top of it, using more resources.

    I like Nova Launcher because you can turn off app animations and make it so much faster.

    So I received my Note 7 today. It's GORGEOUS! However, Nova Launcher doesn't seem to play nicely like it has on all of my other Samsung phones even though I have pro. When I click it, it just generates a new desktop page with four icons. Can't get to settings or anything. Sadness as I've been using Nova Launcher since Galaxy S2.
    Did you try long pressing on the desktop to get to the settings?

    On my note 4 I used Nova because touchwiz is laggy and not well designed. Now on my note 7 I am using stock touchwiz. It has come a long way. It is no longer laggy but smooth and just works well.

    I use Nova because I like the gestured and shortcuts. But Touchwiz is not bad either.

    Just installed Nova myself. Made it over 24 hours on touchwiz but I need those Nova gestures. Couldn't deal with the app drawer icon being all the way on the right side, either.

    Longtime nova prime launcher. Have had it on all my phones but I have recently been using grace ux touchwiz and I like it. Partially because I have become bored with nova. It makes all my phones feel the same

    Nova Launcher user (typically) here. Has anyone had luck with the swipe up gesture to launch Samsung Pay? Or is it locked to TW Home?

    Used to use nova. Which i prefer from the other launchers. Touchwiz just wasn't that bad on the note 5 and i liked the samsung themes better then nova themes.
    Going back to nova for the note 7 though. IDK on the note 7 the icons are weird. Its like the sizing is off. Icons are either tooo big or too small. and with the small icons too much empty spacing between them.

    I am a long time user of Nova but I really like this version of Touchwiz. With the icon frames removed and small icon scaling, it looks great! I don't like the messaging app so I installed Textra. That is the only thing I have changed.

    Has anybody found a dark theme? I had a few on my s7 edge but they are not available for the Note 7. I'm assuming it's due to the new grace ux. Thanks in advance for any recommendations. 🍻

    I tried the TouchWiz launcher for a whopping 6hrs total when I got the phone yesterday. I tried to like it but went back to Nova. Plus I like that a lot of the S-Pen features and Sammy widgets work with Nova. I had a Note 3 back in the day and a lot of the widgets that Sammy had etc was not available to use with Nova.

    Yup I was afraid of the same thing when I put Nova on. The swipe up to launch Samsung Pay works with Nova, plus the tab is also visible at the bottom of the screen as well.
