    The reason I use a custom launcher on all my phone is for the extra customization potential.

    Nothing is wrong with the stock TouchWiz launcher. I just want more customization.

    I use Nova prime for icon options and gestures...ability to hide apps.
    I will switch to tw once in a while.

    My opinion is if one uses the Google now launcher why not just do Nova. You can set it up exactly like the gnl but have badges and additional customization if you choose....

    For me I like having the full Google Now screen to the left of the home screen. Yes you can add the Google Now widget to the left but it's not the same as on the Google Now launcher.

    I use Nova because I want the app drawer in the middle and I like having more icons on the grid and in the dock.

    I like TouchWiz on the S7 edge, but I couldn't stand the huge icons within folders and so went back to Nova.

    I love TouchWiz but keep going back and forth with Nova due to it having the swipe down feature with the larger screen of the s7 edge.

    I was using TW since purchase but have never liked the size of the dock. Used Nova previously so to have more icons on main screen. Tried Nova yesterday for first time on S7E and was surprised to see the dock the size I expect. Back to Nova for good!

    I use Nova so it can change the grid size (tw has the option but limited. Also you can backup the home screen layouts

    I don't like how big the icons are. Even with the Nova trick condensed, it's still way to big.

    I'm using Action Launcher 3 and love it.

    I'm a moron and just discovered you can change the grid size in TW and thus the icons are smaller. I rotate between TW, GN, and Nova. GN has large icons though.

    I'm using the Nova launcher and I've used the 'action' widget to switch to a condensed display. I prefer stock Android and this launcher is one of the first apps I install on a new phone.

    I'm not a fan of Swiping through pages for apps too..
    Not sure what you mean by this. Nova doesn't work any differently than TW in this respect, other than giving you more options on how you want to arrange and access apps. But, unless I'm really misunderstanding you, Nova can do anything TW can do as far as arranging apps.

    Right I meant to say I did not liking swiping through pages in TW to get to an app. Its a little easier in arrow. Although the icons are bigger.

    Omg thanks for the input. I've been using Nova for several years and it's only now that I know this existence of this option. Huge thanks!

    If you like it better, that's what counts. It's good to have choices.

    I was using TW when I first got my s7e, and I really liked how clean it's become(was with lg the last 2 years) but the customization features that Nova Prime brings, especially to a phone like this made me change back to Nova. Another reason why Android is so amazing.

    I dig Action 3 for the quick theme feature. Almost as much flexibility as nova, great shortcut control, and simply load a new wallpaper and everything color matches automatically. Nice for a quick change of pace.

    I have been using the NOVA prime launcher since G3 - just the best , most flexible and customizable launcher out there in my opinion.

    Always seem to come back to Nova.
    For a cool custom google search widget, I found this one.

    What bothers me most about using TW themes is the fact that so few icons are changed to go with the theme. Just the Samsung apps are themed. That means if I want other apps on my homescreen, which I do, they look awful. If this wasn't the case I would give it a chance. But right now I am using Nova and the app "Kustom Live Wallpaper" - which is awesome - and I can't see how anything could be better. The possibilities with Kustom are amazing and it works great with Nova.

    Same as above. I want my icons to have a uniform look as much as possible, which can't be done with TW and it's theming.

    Installed Action 3 this morning after they added stuff like the swipe up app drawer and I quite like it.

    If you change launchers, do you lose the Edge feature of swiping the lists from the edge of the screen?
