    I'm thinking about downloading a third party launcher onto my S7, so I wanted to know if the Google Now Launcher is fast on the S7. Is it faster than stock Touchwiz?

    Google now is generally a pretty snappy launcher and so is nova

    I just noticed that it hasn't been updated since October. I wonder why.

    Updates come with the updates to the Google app.

    I had it but turned it off as it actually used up more battery than TouchWiz did. I still prefer GN but I go where the battery longevity leads me.

    Make it so.

    I'm more interested in performance than battery life. Between Touchwiz and the Google Now launcher, which one is smoother/faster?

    Just because you install a launcher, TouchWiz doesn't go away. The phone is still running TouchWiz in the background.

    You can always download it and then remove it if you don't like it.

    I have had Nova and went back to TW for the past few days. Both are snappy and I even downloaded a few themes. I actually don't have a problem with TW on this s7.

    Don't know why, but the app isn't posting all my screenshots and they're blurry

    I am using Google Now launcher. I installed it right away. No complaints at all. I feel as comfortable as when I used my Nexus 6P. I ensured to do the screen tweak with Nova though to get more screen real estate.
