Facebook Home arrives on Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One and Sony Xperia ZL
posted by Victor H. / May 10, 2013, 3:18 AM
After rolling out the first big update to Facebook Home, the Mark Zuckerberg company has quietly added support for the Galaxy S4 and the One. The Sony Xperia ZL now also supports Facebook Home.
On Samsung and Sony a warning shows up asking you if you want to “Use Home Anyway” and on the HTC device you don’t even need to go through that - it works right out the gate.
Initially, the full screen launcher putting the social network up front on your phone launched supporting last year’s flagships - the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, the HTC One X and One X+.
Head right below to try out Facebook Home on your brand new Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One or Sony Xperia Z.

Judging from the comments I see that a lot of you have not used Facebook Home yet. IT' S HORRIBLE. If you enjoy your Android experience at all, you will not install this. Tried installing this on my HTC One a few weeks ago and myself and all of my friends were horrified with a completely Facebook ridden launcher that took over the whole phone. Now, unless you're a teenage girl that is insanely obsessed with Facebook, then you will hate this. Not to mention it was laggy, when nothing else on the HTC One is laggy. Even on a custom performance rom.

A million(+) downloads sounds nice and all, but... it'd be interesting to know the uninstall numbers too. I know a few people that installed it just to try it out and within a few days all of them had uninstalled it; back their Nova, Go, APEX, & vanilla, etc. launchers.
