Laboratory Overclockers.ru site continues to acquaint its readers with relevant enclosures for android-devices.
During the week, our test devices, we used three shell: + Home Launcher, C Launcher and Line Launcher. They were very easy to learn, easy and quite beautiful. And they have downloaded more than 10 million via the official Google Play Store app. Impressive, is not it? That’s just whether or not all the shells are so good? This is what we examine in this article.
But first, we recommend that you read our previous materials, which conducted the study “launcher” segment for android-devices, as previously through our hands have passed such interesting shell like
As the test equipment used smartphones Xiaomi Redmi Note (Miui V8 on OC Android 4.4.2, the Dalvik runtime, processor MediaTek MT6592, 8 x 1700 MHz videosoprotsessor Mali-450 MP4, 700 MHz, 2 GB RAM) and Jinga Basco M500 3G (OC Android 5.1, runtime ART, processor MediaTek MT6580, 4 x 1300 MHz, videosoprotsessor Mali-400 MP2, 1 GB of RAM), and the tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (CM 13 based OC Android 6.0.1, the runtime ART, TI OMAP 4430 processor, 2 x 1200 MHz, PowerVR videosoprotsessor 540, 384 MHz, 1 GB of RAM).
+ Home Launcher
A simple, light and elegant – that can be characterized by such adjectives shell + Home Launcher. But what is it else?
The benefits of shell + Home Launcher:
- Change the wallpaper, icons, clock widgets and search in one motion;
- Easy to operate even for beginners;
- More than 1,000 kinds of topics. Lots of interesting, cute and stylish design;
- Easy menu page with frequently used applications: camera, calendar, maps, alarm clock, and other gallery;
- Create your own design with the help of functions “frame” and “label” that can be freely positioned anywhere on the home screen.
When you first start, you must configure + Home Launcher to run on our mobile device. The process is very simple and ordinary, because it consists of selecting a topic and a brief introduction to the basic elements of the shell.
So, outwardly + Home Launcher – a lightweight, elegant and very nice jacket for smart phones. It is markedly different from the “classic” interface and the Android OS resembles licked the Sony device interface’s commercials 2013-2015. Note the thin fonts and icons browser, camera and application for calls – something like this is, you will agree.
From the structure and overall presentation of the menu developers have not given up, though, and made some additions. Desk remained unchanged, it is still possible to spread the icons, create folders and widgets. Incidentally, the “complete” with the launcher is a nice widget with a clock and calendar, the weather on the developers did not have enough forces.
All operating screens can be customized in accordance with our preferences – to set the layout, display tables, indicators and much more. Unfortunately, nothing that would be absent in the same
Although, stop, wrong. There are special stickers that you can “stick” to the desktop – attention to the screenshots.
If you press the button with the settings (either on the device or on the icon with three dots), a menu – analogue curtain notifications. In it we can quickly go to the basic features of the phone, for example, camera, navigation, alarm clock or calculator.
The thing is interesting, but the curtain notifications functional (though it depends on the particular device). I think that smartphones domestic brands with OC Android 4.0 this bun only decorate.
Menu with installed applications is done the old fashioned way. Just as in the aforementioned GO Launcher, the review of which was
Well, as without themes? Without them, and the application does not take place, at least, so think many developers graphical environments.
+ Home Launcher includes several hundred so they are quite beautiful, high-quality, but unsuitable for use. Why so? Look at the topic with watermelon, lions … In the middle of the day I would not have reflexes icons, so all piled and pretentious.
Now, a couple of comments. Firstly, the application does not support a horizontal orientation. What kind of fashion has gone – the horror! Secondly, support for tablets and devices, diagonal greater than seven inches, is completely absent.
In the settings of all the functions described and neatly categorized. Of course, in terms of the parameters there is nothing supernatural, but the key installations are present. For example, a change of available animation, screen mesh, setting the circular scrolling screens and search.
In general, a free shell performance + Home Launcher no complaints. Of course, there were small screen freezes when fast scrolling, which attributed to a small eight-performance device is simply impossible.
The program itself uses up to 40 MB of RAM in the mode that is small enough for a level application. Yes, and a minimum load on the system.

+ Home Launcher – a great jacket for smart phones, which developers have good taste, creativity and thoroughness. Over its creation really tried, but little do not have lasted. Design – excellent performance – a perfect functionality – average. In my view, the shell is not enough support for landscape mode and tablets, as well as small chips.
