Question S4 Pin Lockscreen - Can I change the style to S3?


I recently got a Galaxy S4 after playing around with my Friends S3, but I have one complaint. I don't like the lockscreen layout/font..

On the S3, there are boxes around the digits, and they have better fonts. On my S4, I dislike all the fonts and there are no boxes around the digits - which this may be ok with a blank wallpaper - if the wallpaper is 'noisy' then it's hard to see the digits. See what I mean from the images below..

Is there any way I can change my s4 lockscreen to something similar to the S3.

As far as I know there's no way to change the default Samsung PIN lock screen. There may be lock screen apps with widgets that are customizable, some may require root, some don't.

You can also change JUST the wallpaper for the lockscreen to make it less noisy (which only partially solves your problem).
