My tip: use Startup Manager free from Google Play Store to check what apps starting with boot and disable them. You can disable Samsung stuff with this app. More free RAM. No root needed.

I didn't notice any performance issues relating to the launcher for exactly that reason - Nova is one of the first things I install!

I am actually using ADW at the moment though because I saw there was an update since I'd last installed it on another device ages ago and fancied road testing any changes - I'm loving the 'Wall' animation on the app drawer, and people who've had a go on my phone have commented on how slick it looks

Installing another weather app (or HD widgets or similar) and installing a calendar widget from the play store will fix 2 of those 3.

For the other one, I just put a shortcut to the app on my home screen and go into S health that way.

Each to their own though.

S - voice can be disabled completely using the uninstall/disable apps option.

I wouldn't recommend crossbreeder or any of such scripts on our phone.

It won't make any difference and most likely cause higher battery consumption.
