Samsung has joined the likes of Huawei in introducing themes to its devices. While a lot of what I encountered on the Samsung Theme Store are themes I’d consider either too colourful for my liking or childish-looking, there are a few notables. Like the Material Dark theme I applied the moment I got the J5.
Since Samsung devices feature a customized Samsung interface with just a few touches of the original Android experience as envisioned by Google, it is refreshing to know that you can actually bring that look and feel with just a few taps. For the longest time ever, theming Samsung phones has always been a preserve of a few geeks and power users, now everyone who has a Samsung device like the J5 can do it and feel good about themselves without being pros at anything.
For some reason I can’t fathom, the ability to switch themes is not easily accessible. It is buried deep in the settings instead of being front and centre.
