But its just like Jailbreaking. We (people who mod our phones and remove the default launcher) are an extremely small percentage of the market. Buying a Nexus is NOT the answer for most, I for one didn't get one due to it basically copying the iPhone with its latest Nexus 4. (Glass back, no removable battery, expandable storage and no LTE support?) No thank you.
True, but I still got a Nexus because the value can't be beat. $299 for an off contract phone, with a quad core processor (overkill) and 2 GB of RAM? You bet I want a piece of that action.
I'm using T-mobile, so the Nexus not have formal LTE support (though LTE can be enabled, probably destroys battery life though) isn't a big deal to me since T-mo doesn't have LTE, but does support HSPA+42. I currently have an HTC One S, so a non-removable battery and non-expandable storage has yet to bother me. I've only used 2 gigs of space, no need for a 32 GB microSD over here
Back to the OP, I've been using Holo Launcher HD on my HTC One S since it was released.. love it!
