Size today we’ll be looking at the 10 best themes for your device that runs on EMUI.

Everyone wants to create a personal look on their device. Maybe they want a certain style or theme that matches their personality.

Well, lucky for you, we have sorted the 10 best EMUI themes that you need to install on your Huawei or Honor mobile devices.

Best EMUI Themes for Huawei and Honor Devices

Because we expect a majority of these devices to run anything newer than EMUI 8, all the themes in our list should work perfectly for all devices released after 2018. Let’s get started with the list. For the examples and screenshots here, I have used an Honor Play running EMUI 9.1. And yes, all of the themes mentioned here are free to use on your device with no purchases necessary.

Pure Dark 5.0

We all know a number of devices that run on Android 9 and have a system-wide dark mode option. However, on the EMUI side of things, it’s not the same. So, if you wanted to have a nice dark mode setup on your EMUI 9 or older device, this is the theme for you. It’s available as a free download on the Google Play Store. Simply download the app and then install the theme. You also get a dark-colored icon pack as well as a dark wallpaper that works perfectly as an alternative to having Dark Mode at all times.

The Zen UI theme for EMUI devices is a pretty one. It’s got a nice pastel green color that flows through the wallpaper and also on the lock screen.

Other apps will simply have the icons in a squarecle shape which makes them pleasing to look at. This theme will however work the best on devices running EMUI 10 and above. It will work for EMUI 9 devices, but, there are some parts that don’t reflect any changes.

Flyme is a pretty lovely theme for those who love the color blue.  It’s got a nice sea blue wallpaper and nice circle-shaped icons for almost most apps out there. However, this lovely light blue Flyme theme also gives you a custom-designed lock screen that looks so much better than the default lock screen style you would see on a Huawei or Honor device. The theme can be installed on devices running EMUI 10 and newer.

Velvet Version 2

While this theme doesn’t have any velvet appeal, it’s certainly got good looks in all the right possible manners. First off, the yellow and black (or grayish) wallpaper looks sweet on the home screen and lock screen. It also has its own set of white-colored icons for almost all stock and third-party apps. The icons are perfectly sized and they fit well onto your screen. If we talk about the loc screen, you get a nice horizontal clock with two shortcuts at the bottom of the screen at each corner. The best feature out there has to be the animated charging bar. This bar will show up only when your device is being charged. Overall a good theme that works with EMUI 9, but, will work perfectly with EMUI 10 and newer.
