Feiteng gt-i9300+ smart phone
Which launcher do you use for your android phones and tablets and why?
As other users have pointed out, most of the important Android things don’t really sync with Windows, but instead with Google. But if you want to move files from your PC to your phone (like to use your phone as you would a traditional MP3 player by copying songs to it) it will just appear as a drive in windows where you can drag and drop stuff to. Microsoft does make Android apps for their ecosystem’s services (hotmail, xbox etc).
If your only main concern is battery life I would recommend the Nexus 4 but I guess since your on Verizon thats a no go. One of the droids should be fine, they are well reviewed.
I use Nova launcher for my feiteng gt-i9300+ smart phone
Nova Launcher – the gestures and customization are nice, and it’s one of the few launchers where I was able to set the margins on the dock & home screen to look exactly like the stock launcher – I couldn’t find a combination on Apex that exactly matched stock (perhaps I’m nitpicking here).
Stock Jellybean launcher
1. It does its job well – it launches stuff, and has widgets (there aren’t many that I find useful, anyway…)
2. No custom launcher I’ve tried performs better
3. Scrollable docks are gimmicky, IMO
4. The black background for the drawer looks alright on an AMOLED screen, because it just blends into the hardware
5. It doesn’t clog the settings app with options. Seriously, I hate that
Great features and performance.
Doesn’t seem as snappy as stock or Trebuchet, but the amount of customization easily makes up for the ever so slight snappy difference. The performance difference is only noticeable once I use stock or Trebuchet for an extended period, so it really doesn’t make a difference.
I used to use LauncherPro on Gingerbread and below, now that I have Ice Cream Sandwich on my phone and Jellybean on my Nexus 7 I stick with the stock launcherReason being, I had flashed a custom ROM in my Incredible S along with an on-screen button mod(because the backlight keys weren’t functioning properly) and with Trebuchet, Buy iphone 5, my apps would semi-overlap with the dock.
It has some decent gestures + I can keep all of the stock JB animations and transitions.
Best Part – Background transparency lets me have a wallpaper in my app drawer which just looks so much better than a black background.
