    Well, I tried galaxy s7 edge, touchwizz still looks childish to me

    • HybridHuman

      who cares about touchwiz, there are so many different launchers out there to replace it…. Which is exactly why they didn’t upgrade it that much. Most people use a launcher. Same for the AOD screen, it’s very minimal but that’s because they opened their API to devs to create apps for it.

        as a matter of fact most people dont use a launcher . for them it looks good and they are not geeks like us

        • HybridHuman

          I don’t think you need to be a geek to use a launcher. Launchers are very simple to use once installed, don’t need to be technical at all.

          • saksham

            the proof is that if most people used launchers then launchers would have download number upto a billion downloads

        • Paul Beau

          Well my little sister don’t even know what model is her phone, she doesn’t know anything but still uses Nova. Launcher are made to be easy to use

    • saksham

      • Paul Beau
