Considering I am using galaxy s series phones for long time I will take Samsung, don't have anything against stock too
Nova prime user here. But I'm using AP15 recently as my launcher. It lacks widgets, but it's different IMO. Which is what I liked about Android.
Obi Wan Kenobi, 10 Sep 2017Customisation and flexibility is good. That's why people like Android and hate iOS.
Bloatware... moreÂ“That's why people like Android and hate iOSÂ“.
Hmmm thatÂ’s pretty bold and subjective. iOS isnÂ’t some backwater OS.
The question isn't correct. It should be: Which UX/Android customized version do you like the most? A launcher doesn't have equalizers or HDR support. It's your home screen.
And for me, the best UX is TouchWiz/Samsung experience. You get an awful lot of features before stock Android. And themes are supported.
My cheap android phone "ORIGINAL LAUNCHER" is really great & light even better than nova or stock thing lol
The question doesn't seem correct. You can have Samsung version of android on your phone, and install for example nova launcher, which is your homescreen app, and will not change your settings menus, notification bar, samsung apps, etc.
Pointless. Who among us your readers have experienced 25% of these brands. Besides, there are also apps that can be downloaded.
Though I like stock Android, its launcher is the worst part of it. There is little or no customization. I can't remove the Google search bar or can't change the background of the Apps list.
It's definitely better that there is the option of multiple choices.

If you want features on stock android install some apps, of course that if you want them to work perfect you have to get a device that has them integrated (sony,samsung,lg).
LawnChair launcher by miles, none of the ones in the list come anywhere close to it.
Silly poll when the people asking don't know about lawnchair
mixa, 10 Sep 2017Lawnchair launcher is the best that ever existed.I agree, it's absolutely superb, none come close to it

I use samsung's and when i put my hands on a miui device i feel like it is another os. Imagine switching from ios/windows phone os
It can literally run even on the most shitty hardware of a phone, especially iPhones.
For instance, I tried an Xperia XA and never expected it to be that smooth, but a good friend of mine has a J5 2016 which almost always stutters every now and then.
The stock/Google is an useless crap. It is lacking of a lot of basic/essential features. The UI is boring and ugly.
LG's and Samsung's Android version are the bests.

Fair few basic apps change but its not souly part of the launcher.
Nova launcher is the best. It is feature packed and great software support with continuous updates.
Imo company launcher are ok but would be better if it can be more customisable like nova then it will be good.
Another launcher i like is Tsf shell. Great ui with unique qualities..... fun to play with and easyily applealing on the eyes.
Didn't vote, simply because all things listed here are not "just launchers", they are whole new distributions of Android. Even the simplest things like "double tap to wake" to be implemented needs changes in the kernel. Your launcher can't do that. So a launcher is just a layer on top of the system, but all things listed here are so much more. They all are whole new systems based on Android.
