    Go retro

    Google Play

    Aiming for a retro or ironic style? Why not turn your state-of-the-art smartphone into a dated rotary phone with


    Change the launcher

    You can even use LauncherPro to make your Android look like an iPhone.

    Using a custom launcher lets you change grid size, modify icons, or remove the dock if you want. We like a free and popular launcher called

    You can use an app like N3xGen Theme Manager to trick out your phone with a singular unified look. Browse different themes inside the app, select the one you want, and you're good to go.
