    Should be getting my first android phone in a couple of days - HTC One M7.

    Looking at the photos on Flickr (just searched HTC M7) I saw a good looking screenshot from the M7, looks like a custom launcher?

    Anyone know what this is?

    Mmmm... It could be a ton of them! Looks like an icon pack, more than a launcher feature. It could be Nova, it could be Apex, it could even be Themer! (Most likely it's not themer, but they do have very cool homescreen replacements, they're just usually widget-centric, not just app-shorcutty like the picture.)

    But if you want to make your phone look cool and different, I'd suggest to give Themer a go.

    OK thanks for the info, I'll have a look at Themer.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Spook is probably right; an icon pack. This one to me looks pretty close: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=NH3LBW70

    Thanks everyone.

    Got it on Friday, I am very impressed. I was coming from an iphone 4s, so the increase in screen size is very nice.

    The main + points for me are:-

    Great screen
    The ability to swipe between contacts/favourites/recent calls. On the galaxy models the options are at the top of the screen, which is a long way from my thumb.
    Very smooth OS.

    The only slight downside so far is to wake the phone you have to press the power button (no gestures like the M8). I am left handed and the power button is on the top left of the phone and is quite flush with the body, so at the moment its a two handed operation to unlock.

    I had a quick play with Nova and Themer, but will stick with Sense 6 for now until I get used to everything.

    I really like the Aviate launcher
    It's a different style than the others, but I happen to love it
    You should give it a try
