    Really? I was never able to get the current date on the stock calendar app while using Nova, i always used Todays Calendar.
    The pic is of almost the same layout (working on it, lol!) on my Note 5 & 7, using Nova Prime and the Axis icon pack. Just got this reply from the developer (guess I'll be installing "Today Calendar Widget"):

    "I believe this is because Samsung has removed the code for that to update with their own themes/icons when using 3rd party launchers."

    Ugh, really wish Samsung would get the heck off the Apple bandwagon. (This whole dumbing down of the Note's actual NOTE features is really pissing me off. Now trying to take away Android customizations. WTH?)

    Nova Launcher actually speeds the Note 7.

    Launchers are Graphical User Interface. Basically the interface that the user interacts with the OS. Much like Linux desktop GUI (KDE Plasma, Gnome, Cinnamon (like in Mint Linux), etc.) Nova Launcher will show much more faster and smoother performance than TouchWiz UX. Enough to be very noticeable by the average user.
    You also get a better experience by adding back what Samsung took out like easy accessible to Live wallpapers, ability to see all your icons in landscape mode, etc.

    Lastly. Customize your device. Have fun, be creative, make the device easier for your work flow, personalize to your personality, etc... Enjoy!

    I have noticed with Nova Launcher the live calendar date on the icons depends on the icon pack. Some will stay static and some will change.
    Also with Nova you can add widgets to the dock.

    I gave up and installed the google calendar app. That let's the icon show the current date.

    Quick question. Does disabling TouchWiz launcher eliminate the s-pen functions?

    Third party launchers are great! They completely transform your device. Everything from your icon layout to home screen layout, and even device unlocking, can be changed and customized to your liking. And different launchers focus on different things; so you can "shop around" and find the one that best suits your needs.

    I've switched from a few different launchers on my Android devices over the years, and though they're interesting, I find that they do take some getting used to (at least, for me). They're super fun, though! Happy browsing!
