    Ok so I'm trying Nova launcher (bought prime) and I can't figure out how to get the widgets right. It's been a long time since I've been on Android customizing and what not. But the stock samsung weather widget looks bolder on Nova than stock ui. Same with the optimizer widget. I really like Nova but want the nice thin looking numbers and letters.

    I added Weather widgets on my girl's S10 and my S10+.

    The font seems the same my S10+ running Nova, she's running One UI.

    Our phones are set on WQHD+, the Font is set on Smallest, SCREEN ZOOM is set to Smallest too and using SamsungOne font.

    If that's not the issue try downloading HD Widgets. I used it before but happy with One UI widgets. Download the Colourform & Kairo packs too for it.

    Hope this helps.

    I see now what your talking about , the widgets I was looking at the icons .I dont think you can do much changing how Nova does the widgets compared to stock launcher with widgets.

    I have great luck with HD Widgets from the play store. Gives you a number of customization options, including fonts. Easier to use than some other options as well. Once you install them, you add them just like any other Widgets even through the Nova interface / launcher.

    Thank you guys for all of your help, I did reach out to Nova Launcher and they said it is something Samsung does this to try and prevent you from using a 3rd party launcher. So I'm looking into different weather widgets now, definitely gonna look at HD Widgets.

    I also tried out Action Launcher and it seems pretty nice as well, I like the little quick pop up screens when swiping over an icon, kinda reminds me of 3d touch with the iphone

    Is Hd Widgets a paid app? I see one that is .99 cents

    HD Widgets for the win. Super customizeable to make it look however you want (I match mine to whatever wallpaper theme I have going on).

    Ok so I may have found another annoyance. My Samsung pay card/tab at the bottom of the screen isn't there anymore. Seems like it will be there after I remove nova from default but as soon as I make nova my default launcher it goes away. Any idea why?

    Mine did this when I first updated to Pie, but then apparently spontaneously fixed itself. I have Nova and the bottom Pay launcher thing.

    Nova launcher from what I've discovered online does not have DPI modification on android phones.

    Apparently Samsung does this so people could use the stock launcher. When using widgets from Samsung on other launchers they have a bigger/bolder look to them which cant be fixed without rooting

    Sorry if this been said already

    You can use gestures in nova like double tap the screen bring Samsung pay up which be better option then Samsung launcher swipe from bottom or 2 finger swipe up from middle of the screen.

    Edit : Or in Nova gestures home button choose Samsung pay

    I have it set for the double tap but it opens up the pay app first then I have to slide over to my card... Which isn't really a big deal but it's not as smooth as stock you know

    True , same for bixby button to remap to SAMSUNG Pay , but Nova for me is showing the device up from bottom and on lock screen. Maybe restart Nova launcher in the settings app in Nova or take sure your not in beta for Nova.

    Thanks for all of the help. I'm gonna rock it on the double tap for now. Just by change does Nova cause extra drain on the battery?
