It's not about TouchWiz launcher annoying you, it just lacks in features that the other launchers have. I use Nova on any Android phone/tablet I use and it's pretty smooth. I do however like how the app drawer opens in TouchWiz.

You paid a premium for the Note2 mostly due to the custom software and features that it includes so why do you want to revert it to stock Android because of a lock screen?

How do you know that's why he bought it?

He should use it however he likes. I've already told him he'll lose a lot of the features but he can try it out and see if he minds that or not. I eventually missed TouchWiz and it's features on my S3 so I went back.

I bought it for the big screen. I haven't even taken the s-pen out of the phone yet, and probably never will lol. CM10.1 is insanely amazing (Ive had iPhones since the original one) and I am in love with this device. The only problem is that I am on holiday now so the phone fits in my pants, but it won't fit in my business pants. Not sure how im gonna solve that problem lol.
