Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge Third-Party Dark Theme Available

June 9, 2015 - Written By John Anon

There is little arguing with the fact that Samsung’s latest flagship offerings, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are two of the most sought after devices right now. Long before they were released, the speculation was high and almost to a point where it was unclear as to whether the devices would be able to live up to the hype. However, back at the start of March and during MWC, Samsung did unveil the twin S6 devices and they were met with a very warm welcome. In particular, the Galaxy S6 Edge seems to be a device which has attracted significant attention thanks to its two sloping sides.

Well, if you were one of those who had been lured by the slopes of the Edge or of the standard Galaxy S6 and decided to take the plunge in buying, then you were probably also quite excited by the themes feature which has now been included on the two devices. This gives you the ability to theme your device more thoroughly and receive a more individualistic device. That said, the one issue with themes in general on the S6, is that the variance of themes on offer is quite minimal. Samsung are reported to be working on increasing the number of themes, although as yet, the uptake has been slow.

Well, if you are in the market for a new theme then XDA member HS has put together a rather neat Dark theme for the S6 and S6 Edge. This is a beta theme and as such, do not be surprised if things are a little buggy. However, so far, it seems to be working out well for those who have tried it, offering the S6 and S6 Edge owners a more much Material Dark based looking UI. Of course, there are the additional functional benefits of running a Dark theme on your device, such as the ability to limit battery consumption due to the display not been as bright. Either way and regardless of whether you are looking for a Dark theme for functional or purely aesthetic reasons, this one might be worth a try. It does need to be pointed out that HS states the theme has only been tested on the Galaxy S6, therefore if you try on an S6 Edge, keep a lookout for anything not working and let HS now.
