    When it comes to launcher I am curious if you guys are using adw, Launcher pro or the stock one in the gb leak. Please share your thoughts and experiences.

    I ran SPB Shell 3D for a few.... then LPP, but i havent really given the stock one a run.

    Speed, performance, and battery life are key for me. Do launchers affect any of these?

    I personally used ADW EX and loved it. Launcher can definitely affect speed (transitions between screens) and battery life. Really liked the theme capabilities of ADW, and the screen transition effects of EX. Always was really snappy for me and didn't seem to use much battery.

    I also use adw ex and it's smoother than blurlauncher. never had a problem with battery life. also the home screen gestures are too useful to give up :p

    I am having such a tough time settling on a Launcher. I don't know if I should keep using LPP, switch back to SBP Shell 3D, or just go with stock....

    Before the GB leak, I would switch between ADW and Launcher Pro, but ended up sticking with Launcher Pro. Now that I have the GB leak I'm sticking with stock. It runs very well for me and gives a lot of options that I really like. My battery just seems normal, but I'm very satisfied with the stock they made for gingerbread.

    I do like several of the features in the stock....seems each launcher has perks and con's. LPP gives you the ability to hide apps....stock and SPB don't. SPB gives you unlimited homescreens and uninstall from app drawer....LP doesn't. Stock also gives you uninstall options....and profiles which neither LPP nor SPB do.

    Ugh....this is a horrible decision.

    Try out Go Launcher EX. I was on LPP and am giving Go Launcher a whirl.
