My favourite Symbian^3 theme – Metro Minimal

One of the strong points of Symbian is its high level of customisation by way of themes, wallpapers and audio alerts.

As a matter of fact, Symbian is one of the very few mobile OSes available today that has a full skinning feature built in. With any of the thousands of themes available, users can make their Symbian devices user interfaces customised (icons, wallpaper, colour, background and in some cases, even audio) to their taste in one click. No hacks and no complicated processes required.

Like many other hardcore smartphone users, many months ago, I got tired of the default icon set that came with Symbian and so went theme hunting.

While I found some good Anna themes i.e. themes with Symbian Anna icons, my all-time favourite Symbian theme is Metro Minimal by NovaG. The theme features WindowsPhone-style icons and lines. The developer describes it this way:

Pure Simplicity. Bring your phone to life with this dark and minimalist theme. Great for phones with OLED screens.

If you have followed MobilityNigeria for a while, you know that I am a great fan of Metro, the WindowsPhone UI. The clean, minimalist interface rocks my boat.

Metro Minimal has the blackest black on any Symbian theme that I have seen (Don’t forget that dark themes help conserve significant battery power on AMOLED displays). Everything simply looks good. The WindowsPhone-style icons leave a very good impression.

I heartilly recommend Metro Minimal. You can download Metro Minimal from the Ovi Store.

    I’ve been using the Flare theme by Pizero for months now. The black and red combo was made for my pleasure. I sample other themes and custom desktops occasionally, but always return to the Flare theme. And I’ve refused to install any Anna theme. I don’t want imitations, but the real deal.

    Blacker than Black. AMOLED

    This is the same reason why I love LED TVs, black is always blacker.

    Symbian should live forever.

    This is the kind of things that reminds me of the power of customization in Symbian.

    Similar concept was used for the Nokia Evolve theme. Black is the colour.

    I thought I’d give metro minimal a trial today, and i have to say that it’s great. It’s truly simplistic with lots of black. The best is that when swyping in landscape mode, the background is now fully black, unlike my previous themes which used a white background. Big energy saving, there!
