What? Minimalist? It's far from real minimalism. And it looks ugly, old, boring childish, cartoonish and outdated
Ugly just like the iOS icons. It looked like Samsung copied Meego and the PS Vita circular icons but made it duller. Thank goodness it has Android because Apple has refused to let their stupid users customize it to their taste for ten years. I laugh when people say iPhones are beautiful. Not with those top and bottom bezels and forced upon ugly icons the users can't change.
I dont really like them. I like minimalistic style but this will mean very inconsistent experience with non-Samsung icons, which are really element packed. It will not look good, it will look messy.
Also, why is there no text under icons? I think it was bugged.

If it did, I coul... moreThemes on the "Note 4 TouchWiz" ( Galaxy Note 4, Edge and Galaxy A series) are not using the Theme store. Only a bunch of pre-installed themes. But you can install APKs of themes you can find online (try on XDA)
The Smart View was updated with a new icon too . The updated apps are already available ( I have the new Music app, favorite music section is now just a heart)

s what I cannot understand. Why people are so stupid (buying overpriced devices) and blind (and something what looks so ugly)...
AnonD-81566, 14 Mar 2017If there are free theme available, as you say, in a theme store, then people need not complain... moreYes, you can get any theme of your taste from the Samsung theme store, a theme changes everything including icons, transitions, settings, color scheme, even the notification area. You get plenty of free and paid themes and new themes are added on daily basis so there's no point of arguing over the icons design.
Samsung icons starting to look like other Chinese manufacturers icons now

Someone Else, 14 Mar 2017There are tons of pure black theme in Samsung's Theme Store. You just have to find it. My pers... moreThe last samsung I had was the note 4 and I dont think that had dark themes. If it did, I couldnt find any

If I could get an updated Nexus 6p, I would never ever think about going back to Samsung. I have a hundred and sixty plus applications downloaded and multiple screen widgets and I have no lag. I'm sure Samsung has not fixed TouchWiz lag, it's going to be about $1,000 and it has no front facing speakers.

It is not going to clash with only Google's apps, it's going to clash with a lot of apps. Glad it has a theme engine. I hope the bullshit is not system deep.
