Stock Android is just too plain boring for me. The reason I like manufacturer ROM is because of inbuilt features for which I don't need to install a separate app, unlike on stock Android. Not into launchers & stuff. Manufacturer ROM offers better customization than stock Android and they come with features missing in stock version. As for bloatwares in manufacturer's user interface, in most cases, you can disable or uninstall them and they shouldn't cause any problem as long as they aren't running in the background. So I'd prefer Custom ROM of the manufacturer anyday over stock Android. I've always been using Samsung Phones since the very beginning, so their UI is quite familiar and I kinda like it. It's pretty good. I also like MIUI, it's a feature rich ROM.
I don't understand how manufacturers came to the mad idea, that people must like their sh**ty, unoptimized bloatware, instead of clean looks and snappy performance. What baffles me even more, is how they even succeeded in showing it down our throats. When you first boot up your TouchWiz(or pretty much just anything that bloated) it's like being greeted to a circus ffs.
Just imagine galaxy S8 with stock android looks boring to me, experience 8.1 does look better on Galaxy S8
I am so used to samsung skin from the start, that even stock UI makes me confused.. I have seen Touchwiz change so much from the start.. its entire evolution line is known to me.. and still the Grace UX might look different,, but I love how sammy kept the core design same.. anyway.. Apple UI is best for me,, simple, fast.. and helps in extremely well RAM management
Boebus666, 17 Sep 2017I absolutely love the Grace UX on my Galaxy S8.. I know its quite heavy but I think its fantastic Btw it's Dream UX ..
You can also say it Samsung Experience ...
And I also love Samsung Launcher ( from Grace UX to Dream UX)...

I have Nova from the beginning of using Android and alternative Launchers. The best for me, tried alot. Always returning back to Nova!
i tried Nova on my G5 for a week, it was capable and useful but it caused overheating and battery drain to the point i had to remove it and install Google Now launcher.
Nova Launcher is quite good but I found organising apps into folders to be too much of a chore.
