Best ad-blockers for Android used by me
AdClear is the premier non-root adblocker for Android users. AdClear’s technology filters out advertisers before they invade your browsing or app experience. Our adblocker is the best in the market at blocking YouTube ads, and we’re the first on Android to block encrypted ads. As a bonus, AdClear's Firewall and Doze features combined with ad blocker saves battery, bandwidth, and loading times for users, and keeps users safe from malware-infected ads. The best part: it's free. If you want to keep advertisers out, AdClear's here for you.
Our app works by creating an on-device VPN to filter out network requests before they reach your phone. This works in conjunction with our SSL certificate. Using the VPN alone we can only filter out regular requests and not encrypted ones (such as YouTube and many others). When the app is activated you may just let it run in the background and do it's magic.
The only way to install AdClear for Android is to download and use the Android installer from the official website. This is necessary because AdClear is not allowed in the Google Play Store due to AdClear’s blocking of advertisements.

dns66 - DNS-based Host Blocker for Android. DNS66 allows blocking host names via DNS. This can be used for ad blocking. It also allows other DNS servers to be added, for more privacy.
Compared to AdBlock Plus, this works without proxy stuff; and it also does not require root, like AdAway does: DNS66 establishes a VPN interface, and redirects DNS server traffic to it. The VPN interface filters the traffic, only allowing queries for hosts that are not blacklisted.
A host (list) can be configured as allow, deny, or ignore. A later entry in the list overrides a previous entry.
Custom DNS Servers can be configured as well, using the same UI, but no differentiation is made between ignored and denied servers.
An ad blocker that uses the hosts file. The hosts file contains a list of mappings between hostnames and IP addresses. When an app requests an ad, that request is directed to 127.0.0.1 which does nothing. There are options to run a web server to respond to blocked hostnames and to direct requests to the IP address of your choosing. You can automatically download hosts files from the app but it is possible to use your own and to add certain sites to the white- and black-lists.
