Is there any way you could make a step by step video on how to customize your s9+ to look like it does in this video. I was contemplating on whether or not I should switch to android and get the S9+ or stick with apple and I made the switch between platforms simply after watching this video and seeing how amazing you made your phone look. I'm new to the android platform so I'm not too familiar with all the settings, backgrounds/wallpapers, and the different launchers. Thank you!

how is navigation bar transparent
Verona111 (5 months ago)
Wow, this is awesome! Makes me wanna do the same thing for my S8+. I am wondering tho, do all of these things slow down the phone? I always worry about applying live wallpapers and unique keyboards and such because I hear that it can slow down the phone and make it lag more. Would love to hear your thoughts!

Hey guys, I can't decide whether to get the Galaxy S8 or iPhone X? I currently have an iPhone 6s but I enjoy the Android OS as well. In Canada, the S8 is $1000 and the X is $1350.

how did you remove the status bar from you screen when you swipe to show the weather widget and commonly used apps? I noticed that your status bar stays on only your home screen.

Okay I have had my Galaxy S8+ since they came out. The only problem I have had with it is that it does not display badge icons on any of my apps. Any idea why? I am running Nova with the Pix It icon pack, and have my notifications on and everything.

Bro, IPhones are better because of the apple logo. The apple logo makes the IPhone the best phone on the market! Who needs high resolution screens and customisation? These apple devices are expensive because...um... They're the best, right?

Hold down on the home screen, then tap widgets. Scroll until you find "Weather" App that you have, hold and drag it on your home screen. :D

Zack Dehoop yes. On the "widget ontap action", go to nova activities > settings > battery. You should be able to find what you want there. Cheers
