I have never used an android widget of any kind. I like my home screen filled with the apps I use most often. The time is already shown and I don't need to see the weather every time I check my phone. So, for me, widgets take up a lot of space without adding much value. I don't even like the google search bar to be in the middle of the screen, so I put at the top, much more space efficient.

Me too, I recommend Z launcher by Nokia and Arrow Launcher by Microsoft. Z launcher is more straightforward and simpler and easier on batter but arrow is more feature rich.
