Samsung Galaxy S6 User Guide

Change or Customize Themes

One of the Samsung Galaxy S6's best new features is its ability to use custom themes, which change the look and feel of the interface in interesting ways. With more than a dozen themes available as free downloads from Samsung's store that's found in the phone's Control Panel, you can make your wallpaper, icons and widgets fit your personality. For example, with the Hello Kitty theme, the notification / quick settings area is red and yellow, the icons for several major apps look like the famous cat and even the phone dialer is styled like the popular cartoon. Here's how to change the theme on your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge.—Avram Piltch

1. Navigate to Settings.

2. Tap Themes. A list of preloaded themes appears.

6. Tap Accept And Download.

    Great intruduction, but for some reason not all your fixes work for me. For example, I want to disable the shutter sound on the camera. When I follow your instructions (allowing for the fact that I likely have a different version) I have no option to disable it. My only workaround is to mute my system sounds. Not a convenient option. Any suggestions?
