Samsung has surprised in the latest major build of Samsung’s UI “TouchWiz” is the introduction of a full dedicated theme store as the part of standard package. And we’re not talking about just some minor changes – the theming engine is allowing a wider degree of customization, including tweaks to icons and various elements of build-in-apps.
The Theme store in TouchWiz has attracted few designers and hobbyists, so there’s no shortage of supply of fresh themes. Unfortunately, not all of the entries were created equal, and while there are some truly nice ones, quite a few of them are mediocre at best. This being a matter of taste, however, you might see things differently.
In any case, a whole bunch of new themes were recently added to the store, and we thought we’d round up the best of them for your viewing pleasure.
Best new Samsung themes for the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy A series
1. [MINU]White Dark
You just can’t go wrong with black and white, and this theme right here proves it. Perfect for those among us who prefer clean looks with as little fluff as possible.

2. Theme christmas
With Christmas right ahead of us all, you can help lift your spirits with a dedicated Christmas-y theme. The icons aren’t exactly our cup of tea, but silliness is part of what makes this one a good pick.

3. Christmas Market
Another Christmas-y entry in our list, the Christmas Market is a bit more our taste with its red accents and slightly warmer (read: less white and therefore cold-ish) feel. It’s up to you, but we personally went with this one.

4. Radiant Ui (dark)
Radiant Ui is awesome in that various accents are painted in modernistic color gradients that we happen to find quite appealing. Beyond that, and save for the squared-off icons, this particular theme is a lot alike to what you get out of the box courtesy of Samsung.

5. [aire] Autumnal tints Theme
Sure, Christmas is right behind the corner, but in some corners of the world autumn is still going strong. To complement the season, the similarly color-graded theme on your left is where it’s at. That is, if you find the icon set attractive. We do.

6. Lotus Green
For the most part, the Lotus Green theme is nothing more than a a set of ‘greenified’ accents for the interface, but we found the icon set, featuring some nice work with shadows, to be absolutely awesome. We think you’ll agree.

Sci-Fi squad, assemble!
Alright, alright, the Orbit theme is not necessarily limited in appeal to just the nerdier among us, but it’s definitely more likely to hit the right notes with them. If you dig TRON, or a similar futuristic Sci-Fi flick, you’ll feel right at home with this one.

8. Fun Loving Town
Speaking of nerdy, last on our least is a pretty unique theme taking tons of inspiration from the ultra-popular game Minecraft. From the cubes used for icon backgrounds, through the artistically pixelated accents, Fun Loving Town is a theme you’ll either love or hate from the get-go.
