If you 'really' need a super light launcher, Lightning launcher is good. It's under 500kb so it's definitely light on RAM :)

Lightning launcher is pretty lackluster feature-wise, so Nova launcher is great too. It is the smoothest launcher out of all the more complex ones, so it's a great choice.

Some settings I've found to make Nova ultra smooth and nice:

desktop> scroll effect> card stack
desktop> wallpaper scrolling> off
desktop> infinite scroll> on
look and feel> scroll speed> relaxed
look and feel> animation speed> fast

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

Nova, even the free one has quite a bit of features, its fast, and you can backup your desktop layout (however the widgets have to be selected again) and you can theme it

I'm using Launcher8 but the phone is becoming very laggy.

I'm using Stock+ R6

Thing is, as I installed the rom and launcher at the same time I don't know which one is at fault

I got bored with Launcher 8, went back to Apex, found that getting laggy, went on to Nova...
Recently, I've been running Holo HD, paid for the plus option because I wanted a couple of the extra tweaks. It runs very smoothly on Stock+ and CM, and doesn't take up as much RAM as the others whilst having almost all of the extended funtionality.

I found launcher 8 incredibly laggy (I'm on stock+). No lag with nova.
