    I was more impressed with stock and Nova seems laggy.

    I've found nova works better for me on my tablets than my phones.

    I love Samsung Themes so I am usually using the stock launcher unless I want some Oreo goodness in which case I switch to Nova launcher.

    Probably because you're running both touchwise and Nova at the same time. I've disabled touchwise and use primarily Nova. Love it.

    Download bk disabler. You can disable a lot with it. For me, I disable all the carrier's bloatware including anything touchwise

    Does it help with phones overall performance and does it free up more RAM? Thanks

    I've been a die hard Nova prime user for a while. I would always just install it immediately on any device I got, but I switched back to stock and am actually liking it a lot now. I feel it runs smoother and faster than Nova. Battery life is even better for me. Freed up lots of space also and deleted the countless icon packs I had..

    It definitely does. The program displays how much active ram each program is using. I mean, if you're like me, I like to keep as little background programs running as much as I can control.

    I have bixby home, voice, touchwiz, Verizon bloatware, Samsung messager services and calendar turned off since I use a separate app for all of these programs.

    I view it this way, if I don't use the stock Samsung app, I prefer turning it off, there isn't a need to leave two app doing the same thing on.

    But this phone has plenty of ram, it really doesn't matter. I've noticed it does help when I'm using Dex.

    It's funny because I downloaded nova prime yesterday on my note 8 and then uninstalled it 10 minutes later. I just like the stock launcher better on this phone. Wish we could use the icon packs on it though.

    Thanks, I will definitely have to try it out. Still on the fence about getting dex though. I really want it but not sure if it's worth it yet.

    I found DeX to be "interesting" but needed more memory than my S8+. Was always always getting "low on memory." Have a Note 8 but haven't attached it yet. There is rumor news of a new DeX Dock device to coincide with the launch of SD845 and S9 Galaxy.

    Microsoft even thinks the Snapdragon 835+ can form the basis of an ARM Windows 10 thing.

    I prefer stock on the Note 8 but I run Nova on my Tab S3 because it hasn't been updated to "Samsung Experience" and Nova is better than "stock" on the Tab S3.

    I quickly got used to the Moto environment (Nougat 7.1.1, so far) on my new Moto E4 Plus after a long-time love affair with a Samsung Galaxy S3. Then, seduced by all the hubbub about Nova, I gave it a try and you know what? Eh. It's clever but clearly not native and when pressed to produce results, at least on my phone, HCI performance was unimproved. Worth a look-see to find out what all the noise was about, but I'm back to Moto.

    I'm using Nova now since I had it on my V20. So far I have it set up similar to TW and really don't notice much of a difference. Guess I am not a power user.
