    Switched to Nova Prime right away. I might consider TouchWiz again when 3rd party themes come to light. I can't stand the look of TouchWiz icons.

    even this slimmed down touchwiz looks absolutely awful. the themes are even worse!!!

    i would definitely use a launcher.

    I used TW for a bit, but didn't care for it. I do like their theme manger though since it changes the system menus, drop downs, etc. I'm currently using the Avengers theme with Nova Prime and the Stealth icon pack.

    Nova Launcher for me, I use too many gestures to not use it.

    Will you stick with Touchwiz? Or will u use another Launcher?-screenshot_2015-04-05-08-04-37.jpg

    I have loved Nova prime on my Note 3 so I'll probably go with it again. From what I've seen of the Samsung themes so far they look pretty bad IMO.

    Google Now launcher for me. Currently use it on my S4 and love it.
    I always use Google Now launcher. Anything not made by Google doesn't touch my phone, except apps of course.

    I'm going to be switching over soon from a BB Z10 that I have setup using their dark theme. Does the Nova launcher black theme carry over to things like the messaging, emails, and the phone dialer. TW looks so awful to me in it's current form.
    Also, does the recent apps close all feature carry over to Nova, or is that lost in the switch?

    I love TW.

    I played with a shield, which has pretty much stock Android. The pull down menu function is simply inadequate.

    Loading a 3rd party launcher like Nova won't change the pull down menu.

    Maybe the Google Now Launcher. It's so simple and clean.

    Nova doesn't change messages, the dialer, or any other app. It only changes icons, and gives you more customizability for the UI. You probably would have to download 3rd party apps to change those things if you choose not to use a theme

    What theme and weather widget are you using? That looks clean.

    On topic: TW currently since I utilize multi-window.

    Nova Launcher, HD Widgets with the Kairo XP, and Rotox Icon pack.

    Just to reiterate:

    The only things you lose by going to a third party launcher are:

    1) My Magazine
    2) Weather widget

    Every other feature and widget is still available regardless of launcher. Even "OK Google" from any homescreen is available in Nova. Meanwhile, Nova has a multitude of options that aren't available in TW. Gestures and secondary swipe actions are indispensable to me and allow me to stay on my main homescreen 99% of the time.

    EDIT: Theming the launcher screens may be disabled, but I am not sure.

    I always stick with touchwiz but have played around with a few launchers here and there. I think I'll definitely stick with Touch Wiz, can't wait to see how some of the built in themes look!

    Much more customization with the third party launchers. I usually try touch wiz for all of a few minutes before "meh" sets in.

    I'd love some more feedback on the GN Launcher with the S6. How does it look and function on the S6? Is it a different look than on pure (nexus/moto) devices?

    I know earlier I said I am sticking with TW but soon I may try Nova again (I have prime for it) to see how it feels / looks on the phone. as "itguyjax" said I forgot about the gestures you can assign .. which are nice.

    I will use tw for the 3 minutes that it takes me to initially set up the new phone then.....never again. Tw is terrible, that hasn't changed.
