My current setup. That background is a live wallpaper. The colors glow in variations. Pretty nice. Also, check my signature because I have my S4 for sale. Awesome phone but I rather switch back to my HTC One..

I've looked for the original screenshot thread but it got buried a while back and I haven't been able to locate it. But here is mine anyway, I really like simplicity in mine.

I like the screen off button. With a case on, the power button is recessed and a pain to reach in there and press. Where did you get that?

It's one of the handiest little apps/widgets. Just search for "Screen Off"...there are a couple of different apps...this is the only one that worked properly for me. Look for the matching icon as shown on my screenshot.

The only time I touch my power button is turn the phone on after it's been shut down. I use the "home" button to turn on the screen, use the "Screen Off" widget to turn it off and if I want to shut down or reboot...I use "Quick Boot" (must be rooted).

Am I the only one who likes a navbar and soft keys? I kept hitting the capacitive buttons by accident, I thought they looked ugly, and I didn't like the mapping, so I turned them off.

Nova launcher, Beautiful widgets 4x2 clock and weather, simple calendar widget, battery disc(push ads, I'm rooted, so I just have Android Firewall to block network access for it), and I'm running a custom ROM(Rootbox) that allows for themes. The theme is Crystal 2.
And you can set direct dial shortcuts and navigation points on your home screen just long press a blank spot on your home screen and pick shortcut.

I'm curious...I see that a lot of these screenshots show the weather on the home screen. Why do you need to see what the current weather is when you can just look outside?

For me, home screen space is valuable property and I like to have my most used apps/widgets on it for quick access. I don't see the benefit of the 'current weather' widgets. Unless your are indoors all the time without windows. But then why do you care what the weather is outside if you are stuck inside.

I realize that everyone has different tastes, but it just doesn't seem efficient.

And yes, I'm just stirring the pot a bit here....

Well I'm in OKC, and the weather is a little deadly over here. Also, if I'm going to doing outdoor activities, and there's a possibility of rain, I'd like to know.

For me its not only about function, its also about look and style preference. If i wanted full "efficient use" of my screen, then it would end up looking something like an iphone... (a grid of app icons)... and who wants that. I (and others I assume) simply like the look of the weather status showing on your homescreen. Not to mention, i can quickly tap the weather widget and bring up the 5-day forecast, etc. With Android, you have the ability to make your homescreen an extension of yourself. Some like cluttered icon grids, some like minimal, some like weather and clocks, etc etc etc. At least we all get to choose what works best for each of us. Keep posting your homescreens!

I agree with what someone else said earlier, I love the simplicity of my initial home screen. And then I also love the widgets on the others, leaving the dock for the bland, less visually appealing apps that clutter iPhone screens

Upgraded from an Lg Optimus M+ to a Galaxy S4. I don't have service at the moment, I'm waiting for MetroPCS to bring the BYOD program to Florida, but I've had time to set up the phone and go with the look I'm happy with. I finished setting up the home page and another page, haven't finished setting up the other pages, still looking. Not rooting or anything, just a simple set up. Loving the phone so far.

Unless your are indoors all the time without windows. But then why do you care what the weather is outside if you are stuck inside.

I realize that everyone has different tastes, but it just doesn't seem efficient.

And yes, I'm just stirring the pot a bit here....
While you can look out the window and see the weather "condition" (ie, rainy, cloudy, sunny), you can't "see" the temperature. So on a fall day in NY, I can look outside and see that it's a bright, sunny day, but the actual temp could be anywhere from 60 to 80 degrees. Makes a big difference when getting myself and my family dressed in the morning!

Not to mention, i can quickly tap the weather widget and bring up the 5-day forecast, etc. With Android, you have the ability to make your homescreen an extension of yourself. Some like cluttered icon grids, some like minimal, some like weather and clocks, etc etc etc. At least we all get to choose what works best for each of us. Keep posting your homescreens!
Agreed. Personalization is the absolute beauty of android. The only "stylized" screen on my phone is my lock screen. I turn on the phone, get a warm and fuzzy feeling, swipe to unlock, and then, but for a pleasing solid wallpaper, it's all about efficiency. Here's my lock screen and home screen:
