Has anyone tested? is samsung s8  running   to 100% with nova luncher for example, or some other luncher?

Most don't. Even my old phone isn't slowed down by Nova launcher since it's pretty lightweight.

I used Next and Go launcher before but, so far Nova is my favorite.

If you don't like the stock then, use a launcher.

You are not going to notice much of a difference in performance.

I don't have a s8 but I have a 2013 galaxy with Android kitkat, snapdragon 400 and 1.2 gb ram,I formatted it and switched to nova,

really I got a huge performance boost.

....But i dont think it is going to make a huge difference on s8,....just it feels better with custom animations,transitions and if your bored with samsung ui then actually you can give it a try..But don't use very heavy launchers

Performance:Android oreo actually gets some performance boost,make sure you get on oreo as soon as samsung releases an update
