    I am sticking with TouchWiz for now. I like that you can change the themes. Hope Samsung or third party developers add more themes. The ones they have in the theme store (with the exception being the Avengers theme) are even too girly and childish for me.

    3rd party launchers won't interfer with multi-window
    Really? I downloaded Nova prime and didn't see the option. Maybe I was just blind.

    Nova doesn't replace TouchWiz, it just replaces the TouchWiz Launcher.

    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.

    I'll be giving Touchwiz a fair shot. I want to use it for a week or so and see how it goes.

    If it doesn't work out, no big deal, can just move to Nova or something. From what I gather, the double tap home button to launch the camera is a system feature that will work regardless of what launcher you have on.

    I'll try Touchwiz. Haven't had a Samsung phone since my last flip. This newer Touchwiz doesn't look terrible.

    Nova Prime. I like using the theme to change the back end stuff. But Nova is the best.

    I was using the Google Now Launcher since I received the phone, but I think it slows down the phone. The recents button is very slow when I have the google now launcher as my default and when I close all apps it takes like a second or two to load the home screen back up.

    I just switched back to Touchwiz and the recents button is fast again and no more lag when closing all.

    I am not sure what exactly was causing it though.

    I felt like Nova used my battery more so I switched to touch wiz. I know it's not suppose to and I don't have hard facts but it felt that way.

    There is no option in Nova for it. But I can still use multi window just fine while using Nova.

    I find Google Now launcher boring and even less customizable than TouchWiz. Swipe for Google Now can be replicated in Nova by using a gesture to launch the Google app (although long press on the home button accomplishes the same thing on Samsung phones). Before Nova enabled "OK Google" on the homescreens, that was the only reason I installed the Google Now Launcher in the first place. Nova has icon packs to replace the phone, contacts, mail, maps, and text icons with Lollipop ones.

    The options for all of the TouchWiz stuff is in settings, not in the app drawer.

    I didn't know you could change the icons without installing a launcher. The icons are really the only thing that bother me about TouchWiz. Does Icon Changer work with any icon pack?

    It's got to be the google now launcher for me. I like to keep everything pretty close to stock android as I can. I enjoy the swipe right for google now.
    If the S6 or S6 edge would have been a google play edition phone I would have been happy with that.
