So the big question. Without a Lineage OS rom, how do you get your shiny new Samsung Galaxy S8 as close to stock as possible? Here’s what I did.
That’ll get you the stock looking homescreen and app drawer.
Phone – Google’s original stock dialler.
Simpler Dialler & Caller ID – It works great, looks pretty stock and has added functionality of showing spam calls and call origin. I use this one instead.
Icon themes require you to actually sign in with a Samsung account sadly
App Drawer – Settings – Wallpapers and Themes. Tap the THEMES tab at the top and search for Material Design. There is a free theme by Cameron Bunch.
Link – Works only on Mobile device
Gboard – Google’s own keyboard with a GIF function too!
Adhell – a No Root ad blocker specifically for Samsung devices. Works nice.
Android Messenger – Stock SMS app
5. Bixby Button
bxActions – Remap that useless Bixby button.
Gimme a shout with what other tweaks work for you 🙂
How’d it go? Tweet @_BenjaminPeters or buy me a beer!
