I use Nova Launcher Prime and have been using it for 4 years now simply because I hate having to set up a new home screen layout when I get a new phone. With Nova Launcher you can backup your home screen layout and settings for Nova Launcher all you have to do on the new device is set up your Gmail account and restore all your apps once they're all installed recover the backup file and done you will be back to your familiar layout you have been using. Very simple and I find the features of Nova is excellent and I say without a doubt that Nova Launcher is the best launcher ever period no argument as Flossy would say it's a major go.
I use Nova. Nothing is more feature packed and snappy than Nova. Apex and Action try their bests, but it just doesn't feel as smooth as Nova Launcher. Besides, with Google Now integration that's this good, why wouldn't I use it?
Lawnchair does in fact all for customizable icons..I've been using it for just over a week now and I've been using a custom icon pack the whole time. You can even change each individual app icon with a long press
Amirzadi a developer who developed a pixel like launcher is called rootless pixel launcher or launcher3 and another pixel like launcher developed by another developer called delete-scape media which is in fact called as lawnchair https://github.com/Deletescape-Media/Lawnchair/releases
I like how with Nova Launcher you can replicate so many home screens from default launchers found on other phones. I was able to make the home screen on my Galaxy S3 look like it was taken directly from the Galaxy S8.
Another one that is super pretty is Evie Launcher. I used it for a couple of months before I switched back to Nova Launcher. It's very pretty with amazing animations and it's quick and easy. Customization could be better, but it's still remarkably pretty
As the creator of the Rootless Pixel Launcher, could you please fix the "Lawnchair" section? It's not Lawnchair, Lawnchair is a different Launcher that uses some of my commits and I use some of Deletescape's. They are two separate things and you're now mixing them together.
