    So I have always used Nova Launcher on all of my Android devices and trust me I have had a lot of them.

    I have had my S8 for about a week now and I still have no desire to install a Launcher on it ... Anyone else feel the same way.

    This phone is so smooth and just works...

    The main reason I have Nova Launcher on my S8 plus is because the icons on the stock UI are way too darned small LOL. I like mine larger like on my current screen

    Nova for sure. I use my own icons as my theme. Very customizable.

    Do you lose any functionality with Nova on the S8?

    TouchWiz lasted less than 10 minutes before I had to install Nova. All because of grid size customization and icon size customization. Samsung needs to put more options in on that.

    TouchWiz works fine for me very fast with no lag at all. I can't believe I have a device with no lag.

    For me, I have always done the Nova Launcher but, the one that I am using on my s8+ is the Action Launcher. Love the shutters and shortcuts.

    You are not alone. I have used Nova Prime on all my phones for years, latest being S7 Edge. My S8 Plus is a different story. I love the way everything looks and runs on my S8 Plus, I have not even had the urge to install Nova Prime and don't see me doing that any time soon.

    again, whilst nova was the first thing i installed in every previous device, im running *shocking* touchwiz.

    it really just works and looks great.

    i used to install nova just to fix everything that was wrong and ugly with stock launchers rather than to pollute the device with gimmicky stuff so for the first time, i'm not missing it.

    Stock for me using a theme with icon pack from their theme store
    made my icons bigger,grid size smaller (kinda like a nexus i'd say)
    i can see very well everything now and it looks clean imo.

    The stock launcher is the best since my GS3 but
    Nova Prime launcher still offers more versatility. Maybe the next iteration of the Experience UI skin will include enough that I won't need Nova.
