I'm a previous nova launcher user. Trying to get a consensus on touch wiz.

I'm ok with Trebuchet and have tried Go Launcher but I really like what they did with touchwiz for jelly bean personally.

I never really liked touch wiz at all. This time around im not so against it. I think my favs would be trebuchet, or the sense launcher. Never got a good feeling from nova or any others...

THIS NOTE 2 IS SENT FROM A GALAXY WHERE SAMSUNG SPRINTS TO THE TOP, AND JELLY BEANS EAT APPLES!!!!

Not sure if serious...?

Can't resize widgets, can't change grid size, no scrollable dock, etc.

The modded touchwiz launcher is OK with increased grid sizes, but still too limited. I use Go Launcher. They update it like every Friday, good support, lots of themes, animations, etc.

go launcher seemed to always add battery drain when i used it. i've tried going back multiple times and each time i'd get bad battery life which would go away after uninstalling. it also started slowing down my droid charge, each update added something that caused my charge to be slow as heck (it's only got 512MB of RAM).

it's got some nice features and add ons however.
