    What should I know? Seems alot is using prime launcher. I had go launcher and is a little laggy. I had go keyboard, go locker and go sms, was real laggy and deleted one at a time and ran better after each uninstall. I switched to handcent keyboard on the maxx and was great. Is there a similar to smart actions? I think I read that foxfi/pdanet works? Thanx

    Best launcher out there is Nova, makes all the others look childish.

    I was using TouchWiz for awhile and then switched to Apex launcher. Right now I'm using Aviate.

    I think you'll like the switch to the s4.

    Only reason I'd want a launcher is to crowd more icons on the screen. Sure would be nice if Android had a setting for icon rows and columns. I had a launcher on my Bionic, though have been reluctant on my S4 for some reason.

    +1 on APEX

    Moved from Motorola Bionic to S4 about 6 months or so ago.... loving it. No problems thus far and I use the heck out of it!

    You can also use a 3rd party launcher to make the phone feel snappier and to change the appearance (theme plus icon sets).

    Apex or Nova. Paid version of either that allow more gestures and customization options.

    Use paid version of Nova on my GS4 at work. Love it. On my Droid Maxx I'm happy with the stock launcher for now.

    I use SwiftKey for my keyboard. As for texting, the stock Messaging app is good, but I've also used Handcent SMS. There are several good ones... it depends on your needs and preferences.

    For my launcher, I use Nova Prime with the Nox theme/icon set.

    Just curious, why fron an S4 to the Droid Maxx??
    I came from a Droid Razr HD and although the build quality feels better, that was about it.
    The S4, since it's a multi carrier phone has more accessory options and a full 1080p screen.
    You can get a 3000mAh battery to replace the factory battery.
    IR blaster, etc. etc.

    I went for the S4 and passed on all the new Motorola phones because none of them have removable storage.
    No microSD support is a deal breaker for me.
