I alway used Nova on previous phones but i really liked google now in the GNL and also the hotword detection on the home in GNL. However, after the last update, they made sure the amount of icons were static independent of the DPI which makes it not really worth it.

I went back to Nova. Though I hope Nova does continue moving forward.

Best for me and the one I always fall back to is Nova launcher. I also wish they implement an easy access to Google Now in future updates.
