Next to Android Go , the platform aimed at limited resource devices, Google introduced a series of optimized applications for operation in terminals with cut-out specifications. Most of them, not only reduced their size or memory consumption, but also had a positive effect on battery life, thanks to the lower overall consumption of resources.
Now, the same creator of the popular Pixel Launcher without the need of root, AmirZ , has created a variant of the launcher incorporated in Pixel devices , that takes advantage of the advantages and Android Go optimizations , to offer better performance in low-end and mid-range terminals.
Since XDA-Developers , tell us that this optimized launcher has an interface similar to that of the Pixel Launcher, although there are certain relevant changes that reduce both the weight and the consumption of system resources. For example, the grid of icons on the screen remains in 4 × 4 , with no possibility of being modified, and it is not possible to use widgets on the home screen, or notification dots – the notices about the apps that were introduced in Android 8 -.
In the launcher settings, however, options such as the ability to add the widget have been added take a look , included in the Pixel 2, in addition to the modification of the shape of the icons or the rotation of the screen. We will also find support for icon packages of third parties.
According to the first tests, the differences in terms of resource consumption are more than remarkable when compared to the traditional Pixel Launcher -about 100 MB of RAM difference. Therefore, it can be a good option for all those who use a terminal not too powerful, or in which the passage of time and the lack of RAM have made a dent. In order to download the application, you must access the GitHub repository , where the executable file of the launcher is hosted.
