25 cool new icon packs and themes to freshen up your Android style (2014 edition)
The beauty of Android lies in its nearly limitless customization options. One particularly deep way to change the looks of your Android phone - be it a Samsung Galaxy device, HTC One phone, or any other gadget powered by Google’s mobile operating system - is to replace all the stock icons for apps with new ones, to get a brand new style.

Luckily, you can find icon packs right on the Google Play Store, each with its own distinct appearance. You can have modern ones with the trendy flat looks, ones that resemble the good old Symbian, others that mimic paper, and so much more. Most of these packs contain hundreds of icons that will cover all most popular apps, but still you should keep in mind that an icon pack might not have a replacement app for a not-so-popular app.

Once you get an icon pack, though, you also need to install it. The easiest way to install an icon pack is by first installing a custom launcher like Apex, Go Launcher, or Nova. However, there is also another way to do this and we walk you through it in the how-to install icon packs without root tutorial here. With all this in mind, take a look at these 25 cool new Android icon packs, and feel free to let us know which one you like best.

Note: You can install and use these icon packs and themes on phones like the Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 2, HTC One (M8), LG G3, LG G2, Moto X, Moto G, Sony Xperia Z2, Xperia Z1, etc.

We've covered them in our previous round-up of icon packs, so we did not want to repeat ourselves. Take a look here:

Mianogen is a CM11 theme so it doesn't install on regular roms.

Same here. I really like the way that Flatro masks. None of my icons look out of place.

Goolors for me. Vibrant colours and flatness simply are my favourites. Oh yes, please do note that some of your suggestions might have already been covered in the other older article on android icon pack.

I'm using Long Shadows with Nova launcher on my Nexus 5 and 10, one of my favorites out there because the icons that they haven't redesigned still fit in nicely. Moonshine is a close second favorite because it's icons aren't extremely bold and there isn't any major contrast between the redesigned icons and the others.

Installing DCikonz right now because 4800 icons is a huge amount.
