    Apex has updated to 2.0. Looks to give a more "stock" appearance.

    I haven't tried the new Apex (since I use the stock launcher), but I loved Nova on my Galaxy Note. I used Nova Prime and may switch back if I get tired of Sense 5. I'm so satisfied with Nova I'm not even interested in looking at Apex again.

    I love Nova launcher! I use the add on that allows me to have the unread count by my email and text messages.

    I really liked sense 5, but I really like how nova allows you to increase the grid size of your home screens. It also has more home screens allowed.

    I can't believe that more people don't use adw.ex launcher. Couple bucks but so worth it

    They all look/work similar right because TBH I only went with Nova Launcher Prime since it was in number two in Google's top paid apps. LOL

    I lost track how much I praised and recommended it.

    I think they all pretty much do the same thing (apex/nova/adw). You may find small difference in what you can do with one or the other. If you can't do something with one, try another.

    I use ADWex because the last time I was setting up my phone before getting the one it was the only one that let me customize folder icons. Since then I believe the other 2 do this as well.

    There are also a couple others I see people talking about a lot but I haven't tried them Buzz and Lightning.

    Honestly, I tried ADW and it was slow on my nexus 10 compared to both stock apex and nova. Apex has gestures and Nova has overlapping widgets. Decide which is the one you need more. I have not decided yet though.

    Nova has gestures too.

    I've tried the apex, nova, and Next launchers but kept returning to Go Prime. ...seems feature rich and not any heavier than any of the others (besides Next). However, Go doesn't seem very popular around here. Why is that?

    I have Prime but rarely use it. Go was good a few years ago until it became bloated and slow.

    I don't find Go Prime bloated or slow...I must be a noob.

    No launcher is better than nova prime plain and simple.

    Do most people use Launchers? It seems like it. I would like to change the icons on my dock but I like Sense 5...

    Sense lags quite a bit compared to apex and nova though. If it had horizontal scrolling and no blinkfeed i wouldn't mind it so much.

    I couldn't stand the vertical scroll on sense 5 either. To me Nova prime is the best.

    I mean either apex or nova are a win win situation, but I think nova is faster and has zero lag and more customization.

    Really? Honestly I haven't noticed any lag at all on my One. Guess I'll try out a Launcher to see how much difference there is

    I use Nova. I only wish I could also have a Blinkfeed home screen with Nova.

    Well if you have never used nova would probably be the reason the sense lag isn't that noticeable. There is a setting in nova to set the speed to faster than light that makes the transitions super smooth.
