Poll results: Which Android launcher are you using?
We recently rounded up some of the best Android launchers, and asked you last week which one are you using. Unsurprisingly, about 37% of our 5368 respondents say they are satisfied with whatever their handset came with out of the box, and don't bother with third-party launchers. We say unsurprisingly, since most manufacturers have been putting a lot of thought and innovative ideas into their custom Android overlays recently, realizing that they are as important as the design and hardware to differentiate the brand in the cutthroat Android universe.

The touchwiz launcher on Galaxy phones are called 'stock' launchers too. So if i used that on my galaxy note 3 instead of Nova launcher i would have chosen that option too

Nova launcher provides the most balanced customization and simplicity out of those options. Hence I am considering to get the Paid version.

sony's timescape launcher looks good and doesn't give much problems.

Me too. Although my phone is i9300, not a Nexus.

No wonder Nova is miles ahead of the competition. Thats the first app i download when switch phones.

I just started using Sicksky, and really like it. It is incredibly light, and the sort of thing that those looking for a very minimalist launcher might like.

Stock (sense for htc and stock motorola) launchers for me since they run smoothly for me and have more than enough functionality for daily tasks.

The first app I use to download when I got a new phone was Nova Launcher but now I stick with stock on the Nexus 5.

Nova is simply better than anything else out there. Even the Google Now launcher is a joke in comparison.

Lightning Launcher. I want that over-the-top customization feel.
