There are a numbers of things you can customize to make your phone look all new and different. They include:
There are a number of different launchers that can be downloaded from Google Playstore. Most of them look different and give a different feeling on the phone. Different launchers have different arrangement and number of home-screens and applications on the app drawer. Some launchers use the home-screens as App drawers for simplicity and ease of use. It all comes down to preference. There are a number of launchers you will explore while customizing your phone making it a fun experience.
Adding widgets to your home-screen is a good way to customize your android experience. Widgets will also add up as shortcuts to your applications and settings. After downloading and installing a widget, you just return to your home-screen and tap and hold on any free area then choose widgets. Select your desired widget to place it on the home screen. You can then move it to the desired location. Widgets such as weather and clock widgets look amazing on the home-screen.
Themes are the best in terms of customizations. They totally change the appearance of the phone’s UI (User Interface). They usually have a predominant colour that sets the mood on one’s phone. To set a different theme, just download and install it. Open the Theme Chooser application to get the list of installed themes then select the desired theme to install it. Themes customize the notification bar and other applications such as the Dialer and the Settings application.
4. Ringtone and Notification sounds
Changing your ringtone and notification sounds once in a while makes your phone feel all different and fun to use.
There are a number of virtual keyboards you can install on your android phone. They can be downloaded from the Google Playstore. Some are convenient in that they have well spaced letters, some are beautifully themed to attract while others have additional features like swipe or gestures. Testing out the keyboards is a fun thing to do as you customize your phone.
6. Wallpapers and animations
Changing the wallpaper on your android phone regularly makes it feel refreshened and makes you want to look at your phone more often. Live wallpapers makes your phone feel lively and makes you want to use it. Allowing animations during transitions from one screen to another improves the looks of your phone’s user interface.
Go ahead, customize your android phone.
