    There are plenty of good custom ROMS out there. Actually there is a poll on this forum of what are peoples favorite. Start there and it should give you an idea.

    Well didn't get that actually, are you looking for launchers are you are looking for the ROMs, what keeps on confusing me is because the poll you have created ask "Any great launchers for Galaxy s3 4.4.2? im sick of Touchwiz" and as I am seeing the answers of the users they are suggesting you ROMs instead of launchers ! And that was weird you also said that "need replacement for touchwiz" but didn't mentioned any thing more like weather from the ROM side or form the launchers side. Are you looking to root your device and flash something different over your device or you are looking for launchers like Nova, Google Now, Apex or similar other launchers available over the store ?? I could guide you to the correct direction until or unless I get an idea about what you are talking about !

    I use Nova Prime. I did use the Google Now Launcher on my Galaxy S3 for a while but found it to be a bit buggy on my phone.

    Well, yes I have heard about it from many users there are some bugs with the Google Now Launcher ! Some people finds it buggy ! Anyway I would say Nova Prime is another best launcher !

    Did you just said what's wrong with Touchwiz I would say everything is wrong with TouchWiz. It's bulky, annoying and the major problem with most of the users they just don't updates the older device because touchwiz is bulky.

    To use a launcher you don't need to root. I personally use Nova on my Moto G and Yahoo Aviate on my Nexus 7. Both are great, as is the Google Now launcher though it is still a little buggy

    Well, yes you can flash other custom ROMs by rooting and flashing some other ROMs over your device. But tell you a little secrete no matter they are that much bulky and they have some upgrade issues but I am still using the same touchwiz which came with my device.

    I am currently running the x note rom and I have to say it's by far a lot smoother then the stock touchwiz my note 3 came with. S5 features with all of the note 3 features and power.
