    Hello friends. Adam is taking the week off to celebrate Xmas and what not, so here's me with the question of the week. I'm curious to know how you feel about launchers, aka home screen replacements. For me, it's one of those things that keep me an unwavering Android fanboy, and I'm sure many of you feel the same.

    With OxygenOS, we've made our own launcher. As we've promised over and over, it is and will stay near-stock with small tweaks to improve usability. Of course we want as many of you as possible to prefer our launcher, but it's really hard to make something that everyone loves. That's why customization is key.

    So, which one is your favorite?

    Oh, and last week's winner is this guy: @DKolev. Good for you. Merry Christmas!

    I'm happy with stock on my OP2, don't like the vertical scrolling of the Google launcher. :)

    I used BlackBerry launcher most of the time, but I switched to nova pro/prime for now to see if I like it or not, still think the BlackBerry Priv launcher is awesome but the reason for my to switch is that I cannot get official updates because its not installed official.

    When they release the launcher for other devices (official) I might switch back

    I´m using the stock Oxygen Launcher on my OP2 but I have bought Nova. Just haven´t come around to install it and customise it. I like the possibility to add a second dock page, custom icon packs, gestures and the ability to make folders in the app drawer. Moreover many widgets, like Zooper, only work with a third party launcher.

    I think the OPT launcher is pretty smooth to be honest. Google Now, does the job equally as well. Not a huge fan of the Nova Launcher. Found myself quickly moving back....

    I really like the Oneplus launcher with Shelf. It's clean and straight forward, and I like the dark implementation (if set in settings)

    I'm looking forward to improvements on this launcher.
