    What are you guys all using for home replacements on your RAZR? Do you go STOCK?

    I'm a HUGE ADW/Go Launcher EX fan -- haven't used either on my 2nd RAZR yet (just got my replacement last night -- 1st was a TOTAL lemon for battery life)...I plan on installing tonight though.

    Just was curious about your preferences for the RAZR!

    I had been using ADW on my OG but I'm really liking the new MotoUI. No plans to swap it out.

    Sticking with stock for now. Though on other phones i have always been a huge fan of Go Launcher EX.

    Ditto here. Used LauncherPro exclusively on my OG Droid, but the UI on the Razr is pretty slick and fluid.

    WOW. NO ONE is using a replacement at all??

    I do like the stock MOTOUI, but I wish I could have 5 icons in the dock, and that they weren't HUGE!

    Probably doing ADW tonight -- not sure!

    Working
    Using Go Launcher EX on mine. Was a big LauncherPro fan when I had my DX. Decided to give Go a shot and haven't looked back.

    I am torn between stock, go ex and lpp.

    On stock fifty two does not work. On lpp world clock does not work. On go ex universal inbox does not work.

    For now go ex is being tested, but it is not as nice as stock in many aspects.

    Using the stock launcher right now. I will most likely use this for a while since it is so smooth, but eventually I will go to GO Launcher EX.

    You can disable the animations on the stock launcher. ;)

    I have already -- that glimmer won't go away. I think it's just baked into the OS...

    When GB dropped for the Droid X1, I went stock launcher on that. And I dont see me changing anytime soon. I kinda dont like the side scrolling app drawer tho...lol.

    So far everything is nice. I did load up Widget Locker tho. I miss the widgets and icons I had on my lock screen. I hope the Bionic and RAZR lock screen gets added to WL themes.

    Mine comes in tomorrow. I'm sure I'll switch to Zeam soon after though (just like I have on previous phones).

    I also hate how you can't have separate wallpapers for lock screen and home screen. Annoying, but simple!

    Was using the stock UI on Razr for some time now, but came across a home replacement app called Zeam. I have to admit, this thing just zips and is so minimalistic.

    +1 for Zeam. It is very quick with a very low MB impact. I should probably try the oem stock sometime tho. I didn't even give it a chance, went straight to Zeam.

    I love launcherpro but it's not getting updated anymore, so I decided to try other launchers.

    SPB is good, but you can't hide the bloatware in the app drawer.

    Go Launcher is laggy.

    ADW is amazing. I use the ICS theme and it's fast and looks great.
