The Android platform is definitely the go-to choice for geeks. The OS is so highly customizable that you can spend more time tweaking your device than using it to … you know … actually be productive.
There are so many options and possibilities that it can get a little overwhelming. Thankfully, there are sites out there that do most of the hard work for you, telling you exactly what settings to change, what launcher to use, and even providing some files you’ll need to make your theme sleek and professional-looking.
You can go with one of these templates, or you can use them as inspiration for your own custom android theme.
Probably the best site out there for custom themes is mycolorscreen. It has a very active community, and you can browse through different android themes based on their popularity. There are even handy video tutorials available for some of the themes on YouTube.

If you’re thinking that none of these custom themes for Android appeals to you, don’t worry. There are literally thousands of ideas out there, and you will be able to find one that blows your mind.
