Answering my own question: Launcher Pro works great. Only slowdown for me is when the app drawer comes up. Setting the app drawer launch animation speed to 10 disables the animation, therefore the lag.

There is no way to resolve this in my opinion for any alternative launchers.
We must wait for update with support Note screen resolution and density.

Regina 3D Launcher successfully uses the S Memo widget.

Here's what I like about Regina 3D:

- different wallpaper for each homescreen (up to 7)
- nice 3D effects
- nice app drawer (numbered pages)
- folder within folders!
- icons not locked to 5x5 grid (finer grid resolution)
- password-protected Secret Workspace (3 more hidden homescreens)

Here's what could be better:
- snappier response
- live wallpaper support (still works on lockscreen though)
- support for landscape mode
- more dock shortcuts

Default SPB Mobile Shell update

This launcher has been updated and now you can alter the size of the Android widgets!! It is a great alternative and it seems to make the Note even snappier all round, from responsiveness to opening and scrolling through the screens - a great alternative to TW!!

Some of the SPB widgets are excellent too!
If my reply is helpful, please press the "Thanks" button!!



Note 3 (SM-N9005) using X-Note 3 ROM - latest version with stock kernel
Note 8 (GT-N5100) using X-Note 8 ROM - latest version with stock kernel

Default Launcher Pro

I've tried some launcher and by far the most responsive and tweakable is Launcher Pro.You only lose some Samsung Widget.

For a smooth scroling trouch pages you have to set memory usage to low.

Tried it again but I still think it lags to much compared to my old SGS II
