    Thread Get third party icons from icon packs on OneUI Home!

    Fair warning: I'm extremely anal about icons, so yeah. I can't stand ugly icons on my home screen and in general. One my biggest gripes about any non-OxygenOS UI's is the fact that you can't customise your icons. Third party launchers don't play well with Android's native gestures (though using...

    Thread Galaxy Themes possible with root?

    I received my Galaxy Tab S7+ and much to my dismay - Galaxy Themes doesn't work. Hell, it doesn't even exist on our tablets. I did not know this prior to purchasing the tablet. I have grown very fond of using Hex themes to modify my OneUI to have AOSP icons and what not on my Samsung phones and...

    Thread Who's responsible for terrible blurry icons on the stock launcher?

    Part of the appeal of the stock launcher is the animations and the seamless use of gestures that are natively found on Android 10. However, what grinds my gears is the inconsistent and blurry icons that are found sometimes on the icons. See my attached photo - I want to know if Chase is...

    Thread Oxygen OS 11 Dialer apk/use on another phone?

    I recently made the switch from the 8 Pro to the Z Fold 2. While I love Samsung's hardware, I find their UI to be appalling in many regards and try to make it more stock Android using themes and what not than anything else. I also installed OP's Android 11 beta while on the 8 Pro and loved it...

    Thread Hex themes work!

    One of my biggest worries was hex not working but it does! See my screenshots. I really hate Samsungs icons and status bar icons, so being able to do this is pretty huge for me. I'll be trying nova and default gestures next to see if things are working smoothly there too.

    Thread Very specific questions about fonts, and Microsoft Word

    I'm very interested in purchasing a Tab S7+ to use as a laptop replacement. I'll still have a Windows laptop for when I need adb, or just need to run specific software, but I'd like for the Tab S7+ to become my workhorse typing machine. I'm a teacher that runs and operates a tutoring business...

    Thread Display isn't bright?

    Have had the Note 20 Ultra from T-Mobile since Wednesday and then phones been be great except for two flaws. One is native gestures still not working 100% smooth with third party launchers - which is okay, I am using FNG anyway, but another is the screen brightness. Despite being in direct...

    Thread Latercase vs. Pitaka?

    I have used a Pitaka case in the past on my Note 10+, and the experience was pleasant. It was a little rough around the edges/cutouts but it wasn't so bad. So I decided to order one for my 8 Pro as well. Given the pandemic, shipping hasn't happened despite ordering 4-5 days ago, and I'm...

    Thread OnePlus 8 Pro iN2020 version?

    Looking at eBay for the OnePlus 8 Pro has led me to a few listings with the title having "iN 2020" Is this a specific region designation? Does it differ from the USA model at all? If anyone has any additional information, that'd be great. Thank you!

    Thread Any modifications to OneUI launcher on Android 10?

    Android 10 has been great and one of the greatest additions is gesture navigation. One thing that has completely sucked however, is the fact that you can't use 3rd party launchers with native gestures. On my Pixel 4 XL, I'm able to use lawnchair and some Magisk modules to modify Google's home...

    Thread Will face unlock work in the dark?

    Part of the appeal of a fingerprint scanner is to be able to use it in situations where you can't use face unlock. I use my phone at literally all times throughout the day. My biggest concern is unlocking it via face unlock when there's no light. I use my phone in bed while my wife is asleep...

    Thread Gesture navigation?

    I've been using a OnePlus 6T and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 regularly and have become very much so used to swiping to go home, back, recents, etc. In fact, picking up my old Pixel 2 XL feels like a step back in terms of usage. I understand there are apps that can mimic the gestures, but they aren't...

    Thread Camera colour reproduction inaccuracy

    Like many of you, I stood in queue at T-Mobile to get the 6T at Times Square. While there's controversy surrounding the bootloader unlock, I'm not too fussed about that since I paid outright and didn't trade in any devices. What I am fussed about however, is the quality of the photos I've taken...

    So I've been using the LG G7 ThinQ and while the phone physically is lovely, has an excellent hifi dac, the best LCD screen, etc. I have become enraged with the absolute piss poor RAM Management and app redraws. The OnePlus 6 was on the list of phones I was interested in but with T-Mobile...

    Thread Xperia Z4/Z3+ Root Discussion

    There appears to be no discussion thread about root for the Z4/Z3+, so I thought one was in order. I'm currently about as useful as a snooze button on a smoke alarm in terms of obtaining root.

    Thread Ordered from tropical_mobile on eBay? Here's what you can expect inside

    I placed a pre-order from tropical_mobile on eBay since I decided the H815 model was the best choice overall, for me. They offered two day shipping as well, so it was sort of a no brainer at that point. I paid a few pennies shy of $700, but they have since significantly dropped the price down to...
