What is the best launcher in the Play Store for the phone? I've been looking at Apex Launcher but I'm wondering if it's a 'fast' launcher, smooth and all good without lags. Can you please help me out?

Apex is my launcher of choice, has a few issues with redrawing every now and then when using the back key from some apps, but I'm learning to live with them and hopefully they'll be fixed in future.

Apex and ADW EX are popular launchers. I use ADW currently but am considering a change to Apex. No specific reason, just fancy a change.

I currently use Go Launcher and have found it very easy to set up and use. On top of that it is fast and quick with a huge variety of features and loads of themes. There are alternative lock in apps too, like Locker and backup that integrate seamlessly. It is easy to find and install themes with lots of  decent free ones, and plenty of paid ones that are cheap.
It is one of the few launchers I have found that doesn't need to redraw the home screen, even if your home screen is on rotate - there is barely any lags when rotating. It really is pretty flawless.

It is also regularly updated and improved.

I have tried ADW, Pro Launcher and a variety of other luancher apps and always come back to Go (I haven't tried Apex or Nova yet though there might not be a point as it has the same if not more features than both of these launchers). Plus did I mention it is free!

I have ADW and Pro Launcher as paid apps but not so sure that I would use them as the devs seem to have stopped updating since ICS due to both apps requiring new API etc.
My suggestion would be start with Go Launcher as it is free and then consider APEX  or NOVA if Go doesn't work for you.

I love Nova Launcher. Quick & smooth. Here's a screenshot of my home screen.
