10 amazing Android home screen designs that will inspire you #1

Last Thursday, we asked you to show your creativity and share your custom Android home screens. Today, we are extremely pleased to report that we've seen an extraordinary number of people who wanted to participate!

You've sent us hundreds of amazing screenshots that show just how much can be done with the various launchers, widgets and icon packs that can be found on the Play Store. Quite a few of them deserve to be shown in the first part of our new "Home Screen Tuning" weekly series, but in order to keep things compact and interesting, we will be displaying them in sets of ten.

Please note that if your own personalized creation is not included here, it doesn't mean that it won't eventually end up on the site. As we mentioned, we've received a vast number of entries, so we simply might have not gotten to it yet. We will continue to publish more custom masterpieces in the following days and weeks, so stay tuned!

Also, if you wish to participate in “Home Screen Tuning” but you haven't seen our previous article, please send your submission to phonearenahome@gmail.com, along with your nickname, the phone that you use and the name of your launcher/widgets/icon packs.

So, the moment has finally come! Let us present you the first batch of awesome customized home screens, made by none other than our readership...

Which custom home screen do you like the most?

It is 3 scrolls down and it serves the purpose right. It is productivity-focused arrangement instead of styling. Phonearena must have liked my description where I explain why everything is there the way it is.

This is why I miss android. Been rocking an iPhone for a month or so now, and though it is an excellent device, iOS is so incredibly boring in comparison to android.

Number 1 gives me the feeling of a James Bond device, and looks awesome! But for me the simplicity and contrast of number 4 is more akin to my tastes.

1 & 6 are perfect. ANy picture with Chicago in it, gets an extra point for me. But number 1 is exactly what I would liek to have. Only problem is I've tried Nova Launcher and I just don't like it. Also many of those screens, just don't look good on a curved display, and I must have all my favorite apps on the home screen. But maybe I can make my home liek #1 and make a second screen with all my standard options. Its great you told us what apps they used to make the screens, that helps a lot.
