    Post The Coolest Ways To Customize Your Android Phone



    The biggest difference between
    Android


    smartphones and iPhones is freedom -- Android users have it and
    iPhone


    users are stuck in Apple's walled garden.While
    iOS


    users might be content changing the backgrounds on their phones, Android allows for total customization and control over how your phone looks and works.
    Here are the coolest ways to change the look of your Android phone.


    Install CyanogenMod


    This after-market firmware is based on Android, but offers a few features not found in the standard Android software. It offers support for various themes, the ability to browse the web in incognito mode, and the ability to use gestures on the lock screen.
    Check out more about CyanogenMod here >





    Use a cool home screen image



    MyColorScreen




    We really like the community-maintained collection of smartphone home screen images at MyColorScreen. The site lets you sort images by date added and popularity, and it features an especially cool image each day.

    Use a cool wallpaper



    Coveroid




    The same way that MyColorScreen catalogs home screens, Coveroid organizes cool wallpapers for your phone. Check out the site and see what you like.

    Use new icon sets



    Google Play




    You might find the icons on your phone boring. If that's the case, switch them out for sharp new images that keep you interested.
    Here's a list of 12 cool icon packs >





    Get some customizable widgets



    Google Play




    Widgets display different pieces of data on your home screen, but they don't have to be clunky-looking. Check out a few of these gorgeous widgets to keep your home screen looking beautiful.
    Desktop Visualizer


    lets you use custom images to create shortcuts. For example, use the Google logo to create a shortcut that immediately open your web browser to Google.com.

    Minimalistic Text


    displays information about time, date, and battery usage using (you guessed it) minimalist-style text.


    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
    dialR


    ?

    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
    LauncherPro.




    Use a cool theme



    Google




    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.
