Question Best Launcher for a LTE One X?

Hi all,

Brand new to the forum but i've had my AT&T one x for a month so far and I've loved it. But I've heard alot about Apex launcher in particular as being better than sense. Does anyone have any opinion on what the best launcher for this phone is? I would prefer to not root/not flash a ROM if at all possible, because I am fairly new to Android (switched from an iPhone).

I used Apex for a bit, I definitely preferred it to Sense, but there are loads you can try.

Take a look here: [LAUNCHER]Launchers & Lockscreens for the HTC One X[LOCKSCREENS] - xda-developers

Apex & Nova are made specifically for ICS and are themed that way, but there are others out there that are worth a look in too. I used Go Launcher for ages on my old phone.

I used Apex for a while but found it a little stuttery, I'm on Nova launcher at the moment, and it is buttery smooth.

You don't have to root to use a different launcher, just download one from the Play Store and use it like an app, if you don't like it then simply uninstall it.

Apex or nothing imho... While Nova for some maybe smooth imho its ui and options are clunky in comparison to Apex. It is the ultimate ICS launcher for Sense devices.
