The theme has been designed in such a way that users get refreshed every time they see their device. The main objective of the developer was to change everything that the user looks and this objective led to the birth of a high-quality lock screen which is served with a sweet navigation bar!


The main thing in this theme is its main colour which was carroty red in the initial release but keeps on changing every month so as to keep you excited with your phone. The new colour for the theme is released on the 11th of every month but the only thing which you need to do to get the new colour is to update the theme.

Holo Glass theme

The next theme which is sitting on our list is Holo Glass theme. I think from the name you may have guessed that what the theme is all about. But sill if you haven’t then let me tell you that this theme is a transparent theme which gives an effect of glass. This means that if you open your app drawer or settings then you can easily see you wallpaper! This theme has 31% transparency and gives a great and clean look to your device!

The theme is really refreshing to the eyes and my personal opinion would be that you should go for this theme and set a sunset image or something related to nature as your wallpaper to get an awesome feel!

Flats theme

Okay, so this is my personal favourite theme. As the name tells this is based on a flat design and looks great. The theme comes with the red and blue colour with grey as secondary colour! Every thing from the settings menu to the clock widget has been redesigned. The dialler has a new and a better look with clean buttons which are placed at an appropriate distance and carry the perfect size for everyone’s fingers.  This theme is based on the stock theme but still looks awesome. Even the status bar is stock and changes as per the colour of the theme you choose! Another awesome and cool feature of this theme is that it even supports tablets! Yes, you heard that right, there are  fewer themes which give support for the tablets. Luckily this theme is one of them and yeah I forgot to tell you that you can download this theme for free which means so many advantages in a single theme and that too for free!
