Galaxy S8, making it mine: Custom icons, themes, widgets, and more

by birtanpublished on September 17, 2020

Hey what's good guys Zack here and my favorite thing to do with the every Android phone I get is making it mine making it look feel and work the way I really wanted to so let's go ahead and take a look at how I have my galaxy sv+ set up and I'll link as much information

As I can down below in the description so first off I've got the material black theme from Samsung scheme store applied it looks amazing on this AMOLED display and I love how it just melts into the sides

Of the curved panel now while the stock Samsung monitor is nice nothing out there can be Nova launcher I've got mine set up with a nine by six grid size a hidden status bar no dock and unlabeled icons speaking of icons I'm currently

Using the pix it I contact they're very high quality and I love the way they jump out at you along with these bright vibrant colors up top I've got some super widgets the first one being this time and date skin

From the mint for super PAC this particular skin has got a dark and a light theme and depending on the wallpaper I'll switch them out I think this looks nice and it's something different from the regular centered

Clock widgets that everybody has on the phones on the upper right hand corner I've got this battery icon that I sort of ripped from the picks up for super widget I basically just deleted all the other elements so that I'd be left with

This and I have it set up to open my battery stats when I tap on it super useful moving on to my right home screen I've got the month calendar widget I've been using this forever and I've never looked back it's super useful you can

Create events straight from the widget and it's got a ton of skins to choose from I highly recommend you guys try this out and right below that I have two Youtube subscriber counts one from my own channel and the other for the

Android police channel and if you haven't subscribed to these channels yet I encourage you to do so on my left screen I continue to keep things simple with another grid of apps that I use everyday things like hangouts snapchat

Instagram Google feed and Amazon and then up top I have a widget from my new favorite weather app today whether it's free in the Play Store and my favorite thing about this app is its interface it's very clean it's easy to navigate

And it looks fantastic on this display definitely try this out all right now heading back over to the home screen I set a swipe up gesture to open up my app drawer similar to how it works in the stock launcher and in here I like to

Keep things clean and/or nice with folders I do get a lot of questions asking how I get this to work and it's simple just head into the nova settings go into the app drawer section scroll all the way down to tap on drawer

Groups swipe over to folders and there you go my folders are pretty basic I just have one for customization ask Google Apps social media tools and of course wallpapers normally I have a lot more

While favorite apps than this but with the s8v in your device I'm going would be install as I go approach so if I don't need it it won't be here right away as for which wallpapers I'm using I do

Use a bunch of different ones depending on my mood and I'll link you guys to some that I use in the description I'll also occasionally toss a live wallpaper on here too I usually choose between rain paper which you guys are probably

Seen both on my channel and over here as well love this one I've got particle garden it's super chill great for AMOLED displays pretty fun as well and of course Samsung's infinity wallpapers which I honestly can't get enough of I

Love you and that's pretty much it I like to keep my setups clean organized while still looking attractive but I do change my setup pretty often so if you'd like to see more of these videos here on android police go ahead and drop a

Comment down below let me know how you guys liked my setup i'd also like to get your suggestions on icon packs widgets wallpapers and all that good stuff but that's been it I hope you guys enjoyed the video if you did feel free to hit
