  1. Thank you very much. I can confirm that the Nova method works flawlessly on my Galaxy S7. I really like these new features.

  2. Installed, tried and uninstalled.
    IMHO, the new lock screen isn’t better than default one on my Note 8, where I see the important info at glance.
    The new task manager with its animation and bigger preview for each app is cumbersome. With the default task manager I get a faster response and a better clue of all the app opened, and even switching between apps it’s easier.
    Of course, this is my personal preference, but Good Lock just didn’t cut it.
