    Hey everyone!

    January marks the beginning of a new year and it’s looking to be an exciting one (more than 2020, at least)! As mentioned in the title, we’re going to be talking about some of the different ways that you can customize your home screen. After all, Android lets us personalize our devices down to the smallest bits.

    That said, in the comments section below, I would like you guys to showcase some of your awesome and personalized home screens. The Writer’s Club and OnePlus will be selecting the best submissions to feature in our upcoming blog!

    All you have to do to participate is...
    1. Include a screenshot of your home screen setup

    2. List what launcher, icon pack, and other widgets you’re using (not limited to the native settings)

    3. Explain the philosophy of your set-up! Are you a dark-minimal kind of guy? Are you a fan of a Sci-Fi or a sports team?

    I would like to start by first providing an example, then going to specifics about how you can customize yours as well!

    @KeBlam ‘s Home Screen (Inspired by @Taylor.Mah )


    As an organized user who loves minimalism, I thought I’d show you what I have on my OnePlus 8 Pro. I have a circular icon pack, which can be easily changed. Not only that, I like to group my apps into little folders and indicate what they are used for! I have the 5-app horizontal layout and I like to keep the text small. However, there is a way to further personalize your home screen.

    See, the thing about OnePlus that we all love is the freedom of innovation. They allow you to customize your phone to truly make it yours.

    To start, I like to hold down the empty space on your home screen. There, you’ll see 3 buttons on the bottom, Wallpaper, Widgets, and Home Settings


    You’ll have many options to:
    • Change the icon pack

    • Home screen layout (Allowing you to truly personalize your home screen and even hide the names of the apps)

    • AND many more, like Notification, Hidden Space, your Launcher Layout.

    Next, go to your Settings and hit Customizations, where you’ll be able to:

    • Change wallpaper, clock on ambient display

    • Accent colors (You can even create your own under ‘customizations’ on the bottom left)

    • Icon Pack (There’s even an option to choose from the Play Store on the bottom left)

    • AND Fingerprint animation to name a few!

    A few ways to personalize your ambient screen and wallpaper is through this new feature called Canvas, which is currently in Beta.


    It draws an outline of your photo and upon unlocking your phone, the actual photo will fade into screen! I found that it works best with people rather than items and animals. Notice how the details of her plaid shirt and the mask are gone, while retaining some of the features, like the eyebrows and masks!

    Another cool wallpaper would be the special OnePlus x Fnatic wallpaper. In case you didn’t know, OnePlus is a massive sponsor of Fnatic and here is one way to unlock 3 new Fnatic Wallpapers!

    Go to the Games app > Settings > Fnatic mode > Tap logo 5 times > and type in "alwaysfnatic” in the box that will appear!


    With that said, feel free to share your best and favorite home screen customizations to have a chance to have it featured on an upcoming blog! Looking forward to seeing your submissions!
