    Just wondering if anyone has installed Nova yet instead of using TouchWiz?

    I've used Nova for around 3 years now and it's generally the first thing I install when getting a new phone. This time I haven't bothered, yet!

    If anyone has installed Nova, has it improved the overall usage, I know it's more customisable, but is it quicker, smoother?

    Just wanted people's opinions

    It was one of the first things I installed. I think it works great - it's always been pretty quick and smooth for me with my previous phones, and I don't feel it's any different here.

    can I use the free version to get a great experience or do I need to upgrade to the premium version. I just recently switched from an iPhone which I had jailbroken to the S7 Edge and these launchers really intrigue me. Especially Nova Launcher.

    Nova is the best. First thing I installed. Snakeyskm is right about the unread badges...great feature. I also like how I can increase the size of the icons, to take advantage of the large screen on the S7. "Endless Scroll" is another feature I like, so you don't hit a "dead end" when moving from page to page. Super stable, and lightning fast.

    Looks like I'll be reinstalling Nova late

    I'm using its close cousin,Apex Launcher (Pro).
    Stock launchers (all of 'em) are just too limited in options,both aestetically & functionally.
    I showed someone my desktop yesterday & they thought it was something new w/the S7/Edge,really liking the look of it (especially the centered app drawer button).
    Most don't even know that changing the launcher is an option,which is why more attention should be given to this by the mfgs...............

    Yup it's always quicker than touchwiz, no issues, works 100% with the edge features, one of the best things is you can turn off the padding on widgets and it smooths into the edges, looks great for homepage weather widgets etc.
