What launcher are you going to use on the Note 10?

Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 has a pretty incredible out-of-the-box software experience. The One UI interface is clean and well though-out, everything feels snappy and smooth, and Samsung's bloat has gotten a lot better over the years.

However, for some folks that get their hands on the phone, it won't be perfect until they install a third-party launcher.

The launcher included on the Note 10 by default is pretty good, but taking a look at the AC forums, a lot of our members appear to still be on that third-party bandwagon.

just wondering if anyone will be using Samsung default launcher or go with another? at this time, I am not planning to use Samsungs launchers but go with the one (smart launcher) I have been using for years. But I am always looking for something different. I hate having rows of icons on the home screen. gives all the phones a similar look - and this includes the iphone.

me just saying

I have Nova Prime, but with Samsung phones I don't use it. I like what they do to Android. I do have to change several things from the default though.


I'm definitely going to be using Nova. Been doing that for years. But this may be my first Samsung phone so I may play with some other themes that they have.


I use Nova Prime on my phone and One UI on my Tab S4. One UI is nice, I just can't bear to change my gestures, layout, folders, etc from Nova. I'll probably try it out on my N10 though.

  • Have had great success with the Microsoft Launcher.
  • I use the default for a while and if I really want to go in depth with customization I'll use Nova. But for the most part I am impressed with Samsungs default
  • One UI has vastly improved. I usually switch to Nova but not when I get the note10+. My s10+ runs very well. Thank God, the touch-wiz days are long gone!
  • I will use a combination of OneUI and Microsoft Launcher. I use the Microsoft Launcher mainly during work hours and rotate between the two using No'me Launcher manager.
  • I recently switched from a Moto X4 with stock Android back to a Samsung model and I am impressed with Samsung OneUI interface. It is better than stock android. Long ago I had a Galaxy S5 and did not like the touchwiz.
  • Probably going to stick with Action Launcher 3!
  • Whatever launcher I want.
  • OneUI. It's so fast and light, I see no need for my old favorites.
  • Same that I use on any non pixel phone. CPL.
  • I use the stock launcher on my S8. With the OneUI update, it works fine. I will stick with it on the Note 10+.
  • Samsung's OneUI with goodlock is the best!
  • I have Nova Prime and would hate to give it up. I love the ability to infinitely scroll home screens and the folders. I will try the default launcher though and see if there have been improvements.
  • I will use Evie because of the simplicity
  • I prefer the BlackBerry Launcher, their Suite of Apps I believe to be Top Notch.
  • Default with a theme. I have had Nova prime up till s7.went from note2,3,4(no access to note5) S7,note 8 stuck with default as touch wizz improved. May sick with default. May look at gboard. Does Gboard have swipe functionality?
