    Which ones are the best, I don't really like or care for Next launcher and that ugly ass OSx like dock they give to every theme or their app drawer, TSF is okay but I've grown bored with it and it hasn't impressed me since my last install of it on my Note Edge.

    Oh and Go Launcher for some reason causes my whole Stylo to flash back and forth becoming unresponsive.

    I use Nova Launcher Prime and it looks great. Very simple and efficient.

    I've never seen any 3D page scrolling effects in it like crystal or whatever.

    I think the transition animations are decently done. Not sure how much more 3D I wouldn't want on a phone with these specs though. Love the phone, just wouldn't want to eat anymore resources than I already do. Haha.

    Well that works for you but like I said and posted about... But no...Va launcher doesn't have any 3D effects they're all 2D really... See below for example of 3D flips.

    I used that launcher a while back, if I remember correctly, it wasn't as customizable as Nova in the sense of icon and widget sizing and changing real estate sizes (I like to cram as much info onto one screen as possible) it also had a $29.99 price tag when I used so I'm sure a lot of features were locked out in the "Lite" version. It looks gorgeous, I just couldn't justify the pricetag.

    I just checked the Play Store. $16.99 I was mistaken.

    Price has dropped a lot since then... The only thing that drives me nuts and makes me wanna stay away from it is everything and I mean just about every damn theme possible has the stupid ass dock background.

    It's always there either transparent or colored. Very few themes have the dock background, but I can't think of which ones off the top of my head and I could adjust to the awkward app drawer.

    Other than the transitions, Nova looks pretty good. No dock. Haha. Next runs smooth on the Stylo though?

    It looks sharp man. I may check it out. Does it allow you to cram all the stuff on the screen like mine? Kind of familiar with all my stuff is.

    I think I've always been more go launcher and i think i bought my version on a 50% off sale or something i remembered paying 9.99 or somewhere around there and thinking why not later I down the road when it gets a lot better. I remedy purchasing SPB Shell 3D for full price when i had my Dell steak mini but it was the biggest launcher floor gingerbread back then.

    I used Go for the longest. Don't really know why I switched. Anything is better than Trebuchet. Haha.

    I just start using the one from Microsoft Garage Project called "Arrow Launcher". I like it quite well. I don't care for the those large bloated launchers with hundreds of features. I like it simple and straight forward. There is also a place in the app where you can make suggestions for changes you would like and see other's suggestions and vote for their suggestions. It also says what ones they are working on.

    Yea i remember this back when it was just a beta in G+ but am looking specifically for 3D launchers. Their app drawer looks like it'd drive me bonkers.
