If Samsung Galaxy S6 was your buying decision as well, I am sure of the fact that you don’t regret it. There are a few issues with the device, that’s for sure (Keyboard Swiftkey Security problems, Notification Toggles Disappearing issues, Signal Strength problems, Screen Rotation ones and not only), but despite of all these, it remains one of the best smartphones that Samsung has ever offered us, so be proud for owning it.
And as you can see, here I am with a fresh guide for your handset once again: this time, I’ll show you how easy is to install the Material Design Theme on your Galaxy S6.
The handset comes with Android 5.0.2 out of the box, so you know that as long as it runs on a version of Lollipop, this means that it has the Material Design UI. Anyway, you should make no confusion and understand from the very beginning the fact that it is not the same as you might be used to see on other stock Android devices from the current market.
The Material Design interface on the Samsung Galaxy S6 is unique thanks to the custom TouchWiz skin that Samsung created for its handsets, but as you know, despite of the fact that Korean manufacturer has improved the TouchWiz skin on the Samsung Galaxy S6, the UI is the very same that you know for such a long time.
Aren’t those bright blue theme colors what you were looking for? Then, it’s time for a change. My advice is to take advantage of the fact that Samsung is offering a new feature on the system core called Theme Panel which gives you the chance to install custom themes and override the current interface.
So, feel free to install a theme that suits you better, activate it from the theme panel and then make all the changes that you want such as icons, colors and not only. And one of the best possible choices is none other than the one offered by member cambunch. Keeping in line with a stock Android experience, the Material Design theme will almost completely remove every aspect of TouchWiz on your Samsung Galaxy S6 and replace it with Google’s latest theme guidelines.
How to Install Material Design Theme on your Galaxy S6:
- Download the Urban theme from the theme store;
- Install it;
- Then download the material design theme. There are two versions to choose from: take Material Design Light
- from here or Material Design Dark from here;
- Do not hesitate to flash it, so use a custom recovery such as CWM or TWRP.
That was all that you had to do! Your Galaxy S6 is finally running the stock Android Material Design theme, offering you a new icon pack, a new Dialer, Messages, Lock screen and even the stock Google keyboard that everyone loves so much. Do you like the changes?
