Ewww. Stock android sucks and lacks a lot of important features compared to other UI.
I won't spent 600$ on a smartphone just to have a skin that can be flashed on a 70$ phone. Where's the buyer's exclusivity?
Nova launcher with icon packs. Whatever the phone i always use Nova launcher and custom icons.
and about Launcher , in my opinion : Hola launcher is best and then Nova Prime , Evie and Apex launcher , why i choose apex launcher because it's doesn't need X Number of permissions as much as possible ... nova is ok too evie is ok too
Apus is best in googe play since it Downloads and i try it very well but it access to everything like many good launcher that they require every possible thing before you run/install the app.
these make me feel they are spyware instead of just a launcher app.
best w/o access : nova - apex - Evie - Arrow - Launcher (yandex) - solo - N launcher and many other launcher that want bloat number of access ... so make them more safe .
but but Apus - Hola - CM - C - TSF - Buzz - and many even more numbers of Bloatware or Spyware that can stole everything from your phone as hell as other app can specially from china and rest of whole world . i prefer not them i don't sure which really does can spy
stock wasn't high in result ... it should be 50% + 1 Vote ... i don't like pure android before 4.3 - 4.4 because it was just black black - and it's just too white but material design with round/circle design of icons make things better Speed we see in Stock/LG/Sony and etc are what we want and and and don't forget hardness of non-stock ROM to upgrade them ... but this problem solved much in Oreo
I love sony Android skin . After stock Google and then Samsung Android skin.
AnonD-456364, 17 Sep 2017Stock android is not good, it won't have any features why would any one want that ? i would on... moreAgree with you BUT if they overload on it too much and cause slow down or lag without rebooting the phone or clearing memory, then it's not good at all.

AnonD-507427, 17 Sep 2017Just imagine galaxy S8 with stock android looks boring to me, experience 8.1 does look better ... moreYouÂ’re right, SamsungÂ’s UI is made to fit their phones. They look beautiful on the surface. My work phone is a Samsung. But I prefer stock Android always. For personal phone, IÂ’m on iOS currently.

Sony is the best for me. Second ones are Stock and Motorola. LG and Samsung UI is beautiful but very heavy. Huawei UI is normal. Others are crap.
you can have it all in miui/color os..i love miui since miui 4..while other launcher still saperated download icon,launcher,wallpaper,lockscreen from playstore miui early have the theming option not just the launcher changing but also systemui and settings.
Stock android is not good, it won't have any features why would any one want that ? i would only like stock android in low end phones, but high end and flagship phones should not have stock android even google made some tweaks to android on the google pixel
I don't understand why are people choosing to pay for Nova, when they can have ALL the payed features for FREE with Buzz Launcher.
I used to love Nova and Apex, that is until i discovered Buzz.
- gesture controls
- Set GIFs as icons
Sometimes you cand have it all for free, you just have to search for it.
