Hello lovely MI Community users,
How are you? I hope you all are fine. Our App Resources Team always focuses on sharing the best quality apps to our fellow MIUIers. In addition to our weekly collection and AppTrend, we bring you another series - App Showdown. In this series we will compare two apps (and also game) and give you a detailed analysis of the comparison.

Today we will discuss about Launcher. Who loved to use third-party Launcher in your phone? Well, I believe that you familiar with Poco and Nova Launcher. So, let’s talk about both launcher and don't forget to VOTE your favorite!

Poco Launcher

When Xiaomi launched a POCO Smartphone sub-brand, it comes with a fresh interface and new launcher called Poco Launcher. In the beginning the launcher only available to POCO-phone user, but now Poco Launcher also available on Play Store. If you are Android user 5.0 above, you can install for free.

Poco is a fast and lightweight launcher. It's designed especially for Android phones. In 2018, Poco becomes one of the 15 best Android apps (Android Authority). One of the best feature of Poco (which is my favorite) is group by color. What is that? With Poco Launcher, you can easily make a group apps based on color. For example, we can create green group apps consists of WhatsApp, Google Play Games, Line, Excel, and more. You can also create another "color group". You can also customize your launcher with cool icon packs. Poco launcher also available in Light and Dark mode.

If you love minimalist design, you should try Poco Launcher, for sure.

Nova Launcher

Before Poco Launcher, there is a very popular launcher called Nova Launcher. Nova launcher is a very nice launcher, released 8 years ago. Nova provides many cool icon packs. User can easily use it and customization their phone. If you are using Nova launcher, you can easily export your settings and layout before a wipe to quickly get back up and running. It's because Nova has useful feature: Backup/Restore.

How much you need to purchase Nova Launcher? There are 2 types of Nova Launcher, the free version and Prime version. To upgrade your launcher to Prime, you need purchase about $4,7 (Rp66.000). With Prime version, you will get extra feature such as gestures, hide apps, icon swipes and drawer group. Compared to Poco Launcher, Nova is much more complex and some people though this launcher need more RAM space. But, I can say that Nova Launcher still worth to try and fun!

Comparison Table

So, which one you like the most? I know that comparison can be subjective. People have their own favorite and interest, but personally I'd love to use Poco Launcher. How about you? Share your opinion and let's discuss! Don't forget to give your vote.
See you on the next App Showdown!

I run Nova launcher since more than 3 years, now on my Redmi Note 4X. Nova allows a LOT of customization but it's light on memory. It's the best launcher I found so far!
