    I use the "Go Launcher" on my S3 with version 4.2.1. I like it but it has been a long time since I have looked into the best launchers now available and would appreciate your comments on which free launcher is best and why you think it is best.

    I don't think there is any one best launcher. Each offer different features which may be better for different users. You might want to install a few and see which ones you like. My favorite are Nova, Apex and adw.

    The one that works best for you. Try them all, I did. Well not all of them. But a whole lot of them.

    I've been using Nova. 3 phones & a tablet. Still love it. Smooth as silk & some great features. I like the commonality it provides between my devices.

    Nova seems to have the most bells and whistles out of what I have used, but it is the same build as the Moto launcher. If you want a completely different look and feel try smart launcher pro.

    Thanks to all, it looks like Nova is the most popular. I tried it but with my quick look I don't see any gains over my present launcher - Go

    Nova Prime gets my vote.

    I think Nova is a bit lighter on the resources and some feel it's closer to stock.

    I use Nova too. I used Go for a while, but Nova seems to be faster. I tried themer because it makes it easy to customize your design, but its slow and kept freezing up. Would not recommend themer at all.

    I don't see many votes for Adw but it's by far my favorite. Need to buy the paid version for all the benefits.

    Best free launcher, my vote would go to apex. There free version has a lot of options

    Google now launcher for my N4, just feels natural. Nova for customizability. I use both for different needs.

    I use Launcher 8, because I sort of got bored of the standard-looking Android launchers. And I like tiles.
