    would Microsoft launcher work well on a samsung galaxy s10? seems like you have too much samsung stuff to uninstall and not take advantage of. If not the s10, then which phone?

    The launcher would basically change the overall look and feel of the phone. The Samsung related apps wouldn't be much of an issue. Personally I'm not a fan of the stock Samsung launcher. Just looks weird. I usually end up installing another launcher as soon as I get a Samsung to play with or fix lol

    I think it would work well. It would definitely be better than the bloatware that Samsung still provides on each phone.

    I've tried it on my Samsung Galaxy S8, and it technically works, but I just wasn't terribly impressed with it. If you're open to trying different launcher styles, and if you liked the Windows Phone look, try "Square Home 3 - Launcher" - you can customize the heck out of it (see the photo gallery in the app listing for examples). I use the Outline Icons (by RandomVector) icon pack with it.

    Yea I guess the MS launcher is bare bones when compared to others (e.g. Nova), but it works well enough for me. I think it comes down to preference in the end. All I can tell you is that I prefer any launcher above the native Samsung launchers lol.... but again, that's just my way.

    I'm the same as you. The MS Launcher is enough for me and I also don't like most of what software Samsung packs on it its phone. Launcher and all.

    Can you uninstall the extra "bloat" that Samsung puts on their phone?

    With launchers? nope, you need root for that

    That is why I picked Xiaomi - less bloat.

    I have a Xiaomi Mi A1 and I think it's a good enough phone for my needs.

    For me, it's cheap and does the job. It kind of reminds me of previous Windows phones too for some reason.
