Have you used themes with your launcher?
Samsung introduced new theming options with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge interface, and slowly, but surely its Theme Store is starting to get populated with something for everyone. Granted, it is not yet as full as some formidable third-party homescreen replacements like the GO Launcher, and yet things are starting to catch up, while the Samsung Theme Store has already amassed millions of downloads.

Themes are a great way to make your phone look and feel entirely different. Going deeper than a simple wallpaper change, or an icon pack swap, theming changes the overall appearance to match an overarching motif to your liking, be it a uniform color, nature or even your favorite baseball team. This is why we wanted to ask you whether you've ever been enticed to use themes and change the appearance of your launcher, be it a third-party one, or the manufacturer interface, like TouchWiz. Tell us in the poll below, and broadcast what you think about theming in the comments.

I've been using Material Dark theme and Nova launcher with Moonshine icon pack on my GS6, perfect combo IMO.

Seems to be the popular choices. I'm using Material dark, but stock launcher for now. My work phone is a Note 3 and I'm using Nova on it.

Nova launcher is the best, I can't find something better.

Material theme + Nova launcher + polycon icon pack = bye bye ugly touchwiz.

One thing I like MIUI is that it's very flexible. However I have only found 1 icon pack from the themes store that handles 3rd party application icons well, and I'm stuck with it for about a year now.

I usually end up going back to the stock theme since it's the most complete theme of all, but once in a while I stumble upon a theme that is complete enough for me to use it

Lot of people out here still seem tobe still living in the galaxy s5 era, grow up guys. My Galaxy S6 edge has more than 10 awesome manly themes. There are tons of beautiful themes in the theme store. Over are the days of Nova Launcher, if you want gesture based control for opening apps, you can use hola swipe for it. Enough of bashing. Enough is enough.
