I shared a list of the 30 best dark themes for Samsung One UI just a while ago. While dark themes look better and help save our eyes from strain in dark and shadowy environments, they can cause visibility issues during sunny hours. In case you want some great themes with a light and white background, here are some of the best light themes for Samsung devices running One UI 4 and One UI 5.
I have to spend a full day searching, installing trying around 70 themes to pick just 20 light themes for Samsung Galaxy devices. I tested these Samsung themes on my Galaxy S23 Ultra and Galaxy S21 Ultra to make sure they work on the latest Samsung One UI.
Since my aim was to feature only the best ones, my list below contains both the best free and paid Samsung themes. The themes listed below are in alphabetical order. In case the themes are not getting applied on your Samsung device, you should wipe the cache partition of your Samsung device via Recovery Mode.
Note: Since we can’t share the download links to the Samsung themes, you’ll have to search for the themes in the Galaxy Themes app.
- Open Settings > Themes.
- Tap the Search icon and type the theme search keyword mentioned after each theme mentioned below.
