Who prefers a 3rd party launcher over TouchWiz what features do you miss out on?

I'm thinking I want to do Nova but I like some of the upgrades on this new touch wiz.
I'm a traditional Nova man though.

What features are you specifically worried about losing? The only thing I have noticed that didn't work with Nova Launcher is the "OK Google" voice command from the home screen...but then again, you might use something I don't...

I'm using Nova and haven't noticed any TW features that are missing. Maybe that's just because I never used those said features, I don't know.

Ive used almost all the 3rd party launchers, including aviate beta. I enjoy Nova the best, and Apex second. Nova feels slightly more customizble than Apex and I am addicted to the gestures.

You shouldnt lose any of the TW features because its still the OS.. Nova is simply just a launcher. You can still access the primary phone settings with nova active.

Yup, exactly. All you do is change the default launcher in the "Default Applications" settings and everything is back to normal.
