    I haven't had a problem with TouchWiz for a few years now. I just download different themes and icon packs and it's fine.

    I'm still on TouchWiz for the moment, I always like messing with the phones in stock form for a few days to see what I think of it. But nova is installed and ready to go as soon as I decide to set it up. I did ditch the stock keyboard for SwiftKey within an hour. The stock one is night and day over my old S5/Note 4 but SwiftKey is where it's at

    what are the pros of TouchWiz? I've used Nova for a few years...
    The only pros I could think of with TW, is you can use the stock clock widget on home screen and use the icon packs that come with the Theme Store themes.

    I am new to Android and have always just used the stock launchers. Is Nova Launcher and Nova Prime the same thing?

    Nova is the free launcher and doesn't have as many features. Nova Prime is a paid upgrade that unlocks all the features. It's worth it because it's a one time purchase.

    Agreed. It's definitely worth the one time cost for the additional features.

    For sure. I don't even use it any more but I have no regrets about paying full price year or so that I did use it. Solid devs, well worth supporting.

    I had used Nova launcher way back with Note 3. I am using Touchwiz with Note 5 and 7. I am pretty happy with it.

    Anybody run into glitches running Nova on it? I have been running TW since I got the phone last weekend, but am itching to install Nova since that is what I used on my last 2 phones, including my 6p.

    Some specific concerns I have are things like the edge panel still working, double-tap for camera, and triple-tap of the home button for one-hand mode. If all those still work I am good to go.

    Nova! No matter which stock UI or other launcher I try, I always go back to Nova Prime. No glitches.

    Ok, just reinstalled nova and spent the last hour setting up my home screens again. Totally worth it, just to have my app drawer in alphabetical order . Ahhhh.

    Yup, all of those things still work fine. What I'm trying to understand is what does the Grace UX provide that's better than Nova. Are there any advantages to using stock at all?

    I tried tw but the grid was too big. Went to Nova
    The home screen grid? I guess you realize you can change it anywhere form 4 x 4 icons to 5 x 5 (and in between). Unless that is not what you meant.

    Question for you guys about Nova, which I'm running, and the Samsung themes. I installed one of the Samsung material themes and everything looks great except the material icons for the stock apps like phone, calendar, etc don't carry over to Nova. Will I need to install a separate icon pack to use with Nova to get the material icons from marshmallow?

    I still do not get why Touchwiz does not allow landscape mode for home screens and app drawer. Makes no sense.

    There is an option to ABC the app drawer in Touchwiz via the little three dot thingy in the corner of the app drawer.
