    I like Z Launcher by Nokia. Accurately predicts the apps you’ll need based on your usage history. Simple, fast.

    I used Go launcher, after experimenting with almost every other launchers available in Playstore. What makes Go launcher so different is that it has a wonderful community of users who keep on posting nice themes. And the weather widget is simply the best. Another useful feature is the double touch to homescreen to activate gesture control to do almost anything…like make calls, open apps, etc.
    In nutshell Go launcher out performs everyone !
