Got my view 20 yesterday here in Holland, ran one update after the other , landed on build 9.1.0.230 and went looking right away for a compatible dark theme to get rid of that annoying white layout..

Tried a a couple of dark themes developed for EMUI 9.0 / 9.1 , quite buggy oln Magic 2.1.0, but at the end I think I found one quite compatible and looking great (just changed the wallpaper):

(Edited)Deep Black by Maurydes

Nearly perfect so far, only the 3 navigation keys/icons at the bottom in some situations are not really good visible, but then again, I am not that young anymore, needing reading glasses.

BY THE WAY, I'm not using the stock launcher, whatever it's called...
I go with - Nova P rime launcher - all the way and all the time, since many years ago...

Cheers

Another way , easier...
Just go to the Play store and run it.
Not exactly the same dark theme I had, but it's as nice and dark as... https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....com.gpix2dark

Also, try this
Third party theme app to push various themes: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...emanager&hl=en
And follow the instructions to the letter.

The other theme I mentioned - DEEP BLACK V2 from Maurydes, you will find it also here : https://forum.xda-developers.com/mat...theme-t3877187

And all kudos to him ..

Interesting stuff. I've tried a few themes from the Huawei/ honor store to change things round but the settings always seems to stay same. White! How did you get the emui theme? Is it accessible from the theme app on the v20? Many thanks.

Thanks for the ideas. I have just tried the theme. It works to some extent but not ideal. All the settings are now all black and cannot read the text even! think I'll go back and keep looking around. Good to know there are workarounds though!

Interesting...Over here the text is white, so, very visible and nice..

Have you got Magic UI 2.1?

Perhaps try changing Text style with the stock themes app

Also try using a third party theme app to push various themes:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...emanager&hl=en

And follow the instructions to the letter.

By the way...

I found many dark themes working fine here : https://club.hihonor.com/in/themes/247/forums.htm

Search for the ones compatible with Magic UI 2.1 (read description ). After installing a theme, reboot the phone immediately...

If it doesn't work for you, or you are doing something wrong or there is something wrong with your device ...

Good luck
