    Which do you prefer? I used Ex Launcher for a week but went back to stock. I prefer stock better.

    GO Launcher w/ Premium XXL theme and widgetlocker. I tried stock for an hour yesterday, and went right back to GO.

    Using ADW launcher with a York theme. Set to seven screens with six by six icons which doesn't work well in landscape so I may switch to five by five.

    I use Go Launcher Ex. It's way more customizable than any of the stock launchers I've tried and its way smoother than ADW and LauncherPro in my opinion. And it looks good.

    I like that I can have three different wallpapers as well. One for my lockscreen (via Go Locker), one for my homescreen, and one for my app drawer.

    Plus other endless customizations.

    I too use Go Launcher Ex and it's fast and can be customized in all kinds of ways.
    Stock works well but after going back for a day I went back to Go Launcher.

    I wonder, will a G Nex run Go Launcher? (he, he, he, sorry couldn't resist.)

    ADW and Go Launcher both won't load my favorite part of the stock launcher. The favorite contacts widget. I love that thing, but I'm not visually challenged, so refuse to only have a 4 x 4 grid on a phone almost 50% bigger than my last one.

    Anyone know how to make that widget work and get a 5 x 5 or 6 x 6 grid?

    I don't care to add any apps, especially "overlays" that control blur that is controlling android but the stock launcher just doesn't compare to the customization available with Go Launcher EX. Very rarely do I notice anything else other than an extremely fast interface.

    I also use Go Weather, Go SMS Pro, Go Locker, Go Task Manager and Go Switch. All useful apps that are very light on battery useage and run in the background seamlessly IMO. My only complaints are occasional stock locker appearance requiring two unlocks and SMS Pop-up while screen locked that leaves keyboard after reply until unlock.

    "Favorite Contacts" widget. Guess it is a part of blur. I have no clue, but for the day and a half I was on the stock laucher I really liked it. I tired to load it on the two other launchers. It will take up space and you have to delete it, but you can't see it.

    Go Launcher does have a favorites contact widget.. its an additional download but its not a big file.

    I get my phone tomorrow and I will probably load Go on it within hours of setting it up
