Play with the Wallpaper:
Every android phone already comes packed with a wide variety of wallpapers by default. You might like all them or you might not. Whatever the case, there comes a time when you need to change the wallpaper of your phone. Changing the wallpaper isn’t that hard but it can make a great impact on the look and feel of your android phone.
There are a lot of places on the internet from where you can find the perfect wallpaper for your need. You can choose any wallpaper in the world. If you want you can try to match the wallpaper to the color of your phone. Or even you can try a wallpaper which reflects your personality. It totally depends on your preference. So, go and press-and-hold the home screen of your android phone and change the wallpaper. Here’s a tip for you, try to change the wallpaper on a regular basis to give your phone a fresh look.
Get a Theme:
Depending on the brand and model of your android phone, there are plenty of themes available for your phone out there. The easiest way to find a theme for your phone would be to head to the play store. Again, you might also find an app called ‘Themes’ on your phone (can vary brand to brand). Launch that app and you will find a huge collection of them.
You won’t have to search for a long time to find a suitable theme for you. However, we can tell you that it will be hard to choose one of them over the other as all of them are so eye-catching. Most of the themes actually change the whole appearance of your phone including the icons, fonts, wallpapers, and even the lock screen wallpaper. So, you can easily give your phone an entire visual overhaul by just changing the theme.
Add Widgets and Switch Icons:
Widgets are like a shortcut to the main app. Typically, a widget will be at your home screen. You can use it to perform certain actions by just tapping it. And, you can also launch the main app with just a tap on the widget itself. Almost all of the apps come with one or more widgets.
But, usually, you can use the widget of the frequently used apps such as Music, Calendar, Weather, News, and Notes etc. By doing so, you can get all the important information from those apps straight to your home screen. You can also easily control the music app with the help of a widget. So, go and add some widgets of your choice right now to your home screen.
Another awesome thing you can do is to switch the icons of your phone. You can install new icon packs from the play store. But, there’s a catch. Most of the android phones don't support icon packs by default. However, you can easily solve the problem by installing a third-party launcher. Speaking of third-party launchers brings another point to mention.
Use Third-Party Launchers:
Every android phone comes with a launcher by default. However, not all the launchers are created equal. The thing is most of the first-party launchers are not that good. Luckily, there’s a huge number of third-party launchers available. Some of them are free and others might cost a few bucks.
Every launcher is different from the other. But the intention of the developers of these launchers is same which is to allow the users to use their Android phone to its highest limits. You can customize your phone’s icons, wallpaper, grid size/style, app drawer layout, home screen layout, and even particular animations with the help of third-party launchers. The only downside of using a third-party launcher is that it might drain up your battery faster than normal.
Change the default Font:
After a couple of months or weeks, the default font of your phone will be monotonous to you. You can easily replace the default font with any other attractive ones. There are thousands of free fonts out there. Depending on the brand or model of your phone, the process of changing the font will be different.
However, if you have rooted your phone then you can use some particular font changer apps from the play store. With the help of those apps, you can change the font of your phone within just a few minutes. The best thing is that you will find it so refreshing to look at your favorite android phone whichever font you chose.
When it comes to customizing your Android phone, your imagination is the limit. You can literally change the whole look of your android phone with the help of a few apps and some slight adjustments. And, the best thing is that all of these are very easy to do. On top of that, you can try all of these for free. So, it’s your turn to make your android phone truly yours by customizing it your way. Go and start customizing.
