    Hey community, I hope you all are doing great out there.

    The open nature of Android fueled its meteoric growth to become the most used mobile OS in the world. The platform matured over time and there are some features that we just miss when we switch to another platform.

    Openness in in fact one of its biggest features. When moving to other platforms you're sure to miss the level of Customization you find on Android. From changing wallpapers to accent colors to creating your own custom widgets, icons packs, the list is endless and there's always something that will match your taste – whether it's something as small as placing icons on your home screen or as big as a complete makeover.

    With that being said, today I'd like to invite you all to show off your customizing skills. Remember no customization is bad. We aren't here to judge whose setup is the best, we are simply here to share our best designs. The sole purpose of this thread is to share the creative ideas you have in that brilliant minds of yours while inspiring others in the process.

    I am a big fan of customization myself. I always tend to create new setups so that my device can look new every time. So, before starting with the "Whats and Hows" of this thread, I would like to share some of my setups to give you guys an idea on what we are expecting from this discussion.

    1. Neon
    The first setup I would like to show to you all is what I call Neon. A dark but vibrant look with basically every apps and functions I want is just a touch away.

    • Widgets Pack- FusiON for KWGT (00028)
    • Wallpaper from Pixurr App (Amoled 01)
    • OnePlus 7t


    2. Silicon
    Second setup is called Silicon. A Clean minimalistic setup with a futuristic wallpaper with custom app folders and a beautiful clock widget to complete the look.
    Elements Used:
    • Nova Launcher (Prime)
    • Icon Pack- Pixel 3D
    • Widgets Pack- FusiON for KWGT (00014)
    • Wallpaper from Pixurr App (Futuristic 07)
    • OnePlus 7t


    3. Shaolin
    Shaolin setup is inspired by the teachinngs of Shaolin.
    The aim here is to have a calm and positive feeling everytime you open your device.

    5. Oxygen
    From the name you might have guessed. This setup is a simple yet appealing setup of Oxygen OS on my OnePlus7t. A search bar, all categorised apps and the OnePlus weather widget completes the whole look.
    Elements Used:
    • OnePlus Launcher
    • Icon Pack- Pixel Pie Dark
    • Widgets Pack- OnePlus Stock
    • Wallpaper from Pixurr App (Minimalistic 64)

    TIPS: You can use apps like InstaMocks or SnapMod to give your screenshots a nice look and feel (like I did above). These apps let you place your screenshots into different smartphone mockups. Do give them a try!!

    Rules to remember:
    So before you start uploading, here are a few points to keep in mind.

    1. Write a few lines on how do you feel about or what inspired you to make this setup.
    2. Do mention the elements like I did (Launcher, widget packs, icon packs, and wallpaper source).
    3. Mention your device (optional).
    4. You can post screenshots of anything you like related to your setup (home screen, lock screen, quick settings, etc.)
    5. Remember, we are not here to compete rather building awesome customizations together as a community.

    So what are you guys waiting for??? Show us some of your awesome and mind-blowing customized setups and remember "NO CUSTOMIZATION IS BAD". 😉😉😁😁✌️
    Peace Out!

    @Bhaveee mann, congratulations on your first WC thread. It's perfection 🔥 But if you ask me, I prefer stock OxygenOS launcher 😂

    I generally try to get a very simple setup with as few icons as possible. So all I really did was install an icon pack and a neat wallpaper app. Even on my PC desktop there are only 3 icons in total and with this phone it's actually my first time to ever put apps on my home screen.
