Which is most preferred launcher and icon pack google pixel 2 xl users use mostly ?
I'm going to guess and say that most of the people below are going to go for
1) Nova launcher Prime
2) pixel launcher
and then there will be a couple of shoutouts for microsoft launcher and action launcher
(and maybe someone will say Apex if the thread goes on for long enough)
As to themes, they are really subjective... what one person thinks looks cool, someone else thinks is tacky.
Have a look at this thread, for ideas
Thanks for comment i some how want icons to be bigger and circular which icon pack would you recommend
I use nova launcher prime.. I can keep the default icons (which are circular) and set the size i want on the home screen, the dock and the launcher.
Nova launcher let's you size your icons
Action launcher and minty free icons for me
I finally settled back into Action Launcher after using only the stock launcher since acquiring my Pixel 2 back in October.
I've been using it since I had my Nexus 5x I've got Nova Pro as a back up if I have any issues too lol
I use Nova, but since the thread has gone on long enough I'll add that Apex is very similar. Both can also use pretty much any icon pack if you don't like the stock icons.
Apex was the launcher to have when I had my galaxy nexus, man there has been so many great launchers over the years
Nova is the best launcher for any phone, period!
It's the first app I install.
I use Nova Launcher Prime along with Stealth icon pack.
Microsoft Launcher and Stealth icon pack
I have used Nova Prime for years on all my Android devices. I'm currently running the Android P Beta on my phone and I tried Google's Pixel Launcher but I quickly returned to Nova. Here are screenshots of Pixel Launcher and my preferred setup of Nova Launcher (with the Moonshine icon pack):
I use Nova free version and Pixel Icon Pack, which is free, on my 3T and will be using the same combo on my Pixel 2.
I've tried several, but keep going back to Nova prime. I found I just can't give up the gestures, and the customization freedom.
HD widgets for the clock and weather, and for now, Koi pond live wall paper with iconpackround for my icons. I often change up my background and icons.
I think I like the marvelous world better.
I'll go ahead and recommend Lean Launcher. More customisation than the normal Pixel Launcher, but not as much as Nova. Which is fine if you're somewhat of a minimalist.
You can also download a different version not on the Play Store that has the working Google Now feed swipe left gesture. The standard Play Store version does not have this. It's smooth, and best of all you can get rid of the ugly white gradient underneath the search bar on the home screen. Oh and you can hide apps
