    For those of you who already have your N10s, are you using the native UI or a 3rd party launcher?

    I've used Nova for a long time now and am looking forward to testing out the native UI on my new N10+ before deciding whether to continue using a third-party launcher.

    I'm using Nova. So far it's the smoothest.
    I'm also writing my own launcher.
    It's goal is not too look for things it just knows what you want and it's always there without swiping forever. Built in phone too. Here's a little screenshot lol. Also had the smallest size and memory use. Everything will also be asynchronous to use multiple cores.
    It's called Micro Launcher. It's not in the market yet.

    I'm using stock, never tried a different launcher.

    What are the benefits?

    I've not used the N10's launcher, but in general "much more customisation" is the answer. "Smoother/more responsive" is sometimes cited, but I don't know whether that's relevant for this phone.

    The last Samsung launcher I used was on my Note 10.1 tablet, and that thing even thought it knew better than me to the extent of deciding that some parts of my screen were for apps and some for widgets - no, I decide my layout, so that was gone within a minute. I like being able to decide the grid size (independently for screen and dock), remove widget padding, place small widgets in the dock if I wish, have multiple dock pages (scrolling separately from the homepage), folders in the dock, folders within folders (possible in Nova by using the Nova settings), choice of app drawer style, that sort of thing. Different launchers offer different things, some do one thing well and others less so, not all do all of the things I mention and some do others I've not mentioned, and so different people have different preferences.

    (I'm using a Pixel 2, where Google think that their clock/info widget and search widget are so good that they get to decide that everyone will use them and where they will be placed on the desktop, which in my opinion is worse than an iPhone for corporate control over your UI. So I really have no choice but to use a third party launcher).

    I have used Nova prime for 6 years and on the N10 plus too. It can do things one ui limits and you can easily switch to one ui on the fly in default apps settings.
    Change everything on how one ui usually looks and behaves. Icon packs are a very welcomed feature and resize or rename anything. Good lock takes many apps, Nova JUST one. https://www.androidcentral.com/nova-launcher-review a look at it regardless of dated material.

    Does this require routing?

    No, it's just an app.
