I have the same issues with wash and wax formulas. The wax mixture dillutes the cleaning power of the soap.

I cleaned my fiance's car the other day with the TW ceramic wash and wax and had the same issue cleaning panels. It does leave pretty good intial protection with beading/sheeting for a one stop solution. I just worry it'll scratch paint more easily.

I don't remember the last time i had to scrub my paint. If you need to do that you probably need to use a better sealant/wax/whatever. Everything just melts off my car when i douse it in water. Griots ceramic spray is some seriously impressive stuff. These new fangled spray waxes are just amazing.

Most of the time i just spray my car down with a hose and drive to work and let it air dry. No water spots except here and there on the glass, which you can hit with Invisible Glass.

Bought some of this at Costco, good stuff. I'm impressed in the regards it's better than the red stuff I have. Shh, I'm finishing up that stuff on the wife's truck.

It is indeed good if you want to do a quick wash/wax. I would still recommend your favorite soap when it comes to deep cleaning, Gold Wash from Meguiars in my case when I want to do a full detail a few weeks after just doing Polymer Washes with no graphene wax.
