    Default Replacement Launchers vs touchwiz

    We've all had our phones for a while. I have used adw launcher for a while since my last phone. Do you guys are prefer touchwiz? I love the infinite possibilities of adw. I have barely used touchwiz.

    I prefer launcher pro just for the functionality and looks. It never crashes and i like the app drawer better. You can hide apps and your home screens spin!

    Used to use launcher pro but switched to go launcher when the dev of launcher pro apparently abandoned it... No updates since may!

    I've always preferred launcherpro plus. The only lame this is the widgets load slowly (the friends stream widget in particular)

    I really like touchwiz launcher. Used Go launcher ex on my inspire. I'd say its a close second. The only complaint I have about touchwiz is the widget grid. They only give you a 4x4 grid, I greatly preferred the 5x4 grid.

    I've used launcher pro + and I'm currenty using Go Launcher EX and G. L. EX is the Launcher I'm going to stick with.
    I didn't like touchwiz because there were only 4 icons in the dock and only one dock. Go L has 3 docks with 5 icons per dock.

    Well, I'm in the process of changing from Go Launcher EX to Launcher Pro. My ATRIX 2 had lots of issues (in general) and especially with Launcher Pro. I'm using the Galaxy S II now and so far, I love LP. On the A2, all of the icons were a fixed size and it didn't matter what you tried to do to adjust them, nothing worked. Depending on how many icons you had on the screen, they would overlap each other. Lp works great on the SGS II.

    I am here:
    Use this link, from Android Central:

    Getting Started with Android - Tips and Tricks

    There is a wealth of info at the above link. Lots of recommendations for apps, launchers, etc., for the new user. I would have been lost when I first purchased my Galaxy S II had I not found this info.

    Enjoy!

    I think it all boils down to personal preference. Was using the paid launcher pro version on my nexus one and really liked the 3D app scrolling. Lack of updates and desire to try something else pushed me to Go Launcher which I am personally prefer to touchwiz and is what I am currently using. Aesthetic-wise SPB 3D seems nice but the price is a distance too far for me for a launcher.

    I've been using LP but switched to Go and I'm noticing a nice speed increase. I have a lot of widgets.

    I've been using ADW EX with a really nice ICS theme overlaid on it. Performance has been pretty solid on it. I'll give Samsung some credit though, they did a really good job of making TouchWiz 4 not a laggy experience. I work at an AT&T store and it's been the only stock launcher that has had really really good performance, but that's not what this is about, is it?

    Here is a screenshot of my phone with ADW EX, with said theme, and a really gorgeous ICS Live Wallpaper

    Could you please provide a link to the ICS ADW theme you're using? Also, what is the name of the widget thats says "I want to"? TIA

    I've been a little fickle when it comes to the launchers I've used on my phone. Android Market had ADW EX on sale for 10 cents the other day so I purchased the app. I really like the extras that come with it. I also purchased the upgrade key for Launcher Pro and once I get ADW launcher set the way I want, I'll go in and setup the LauncherPro upgrade. I think it's worth it to buy the upgrade considering the extras you get and it IS the launcher being used on the phone.

    It's nice, too, because when I switch between the launchers, all of my settings are still there.
