There are thousands of themes on Nokia Store, price ranging from zero to tens of dollars. But there are only a few themes those can make your phone layout stand out of the crowd. Some are free and many are premium. In this very first review at My Symbian blog, I would like to write a personal review of theme which makes me smile when I use that. The review of a Symbian theme which is purely geometrical. The review of a theme which is elegant! And, may be that is why the name of this theme is… Elegance!

About

Elegance is a theme by Inder Deep a.k.a. Silver Blade (or, simply Blade). Elegance is an abstract natured theme, mainly focusing on custom icons. Compatible to Belle and Belle Feature Pack 1 devices, this theme gives a mid dark look to your phone. All elements are 2.5th dimensional (neither purely 2D nor purely 3D) and the icons are mathematically balanced with a rhombus design. The navigation bar is striped and opaque. The color is however rusty but very smooth and elegant (let me say it again). Theme is very fast on my belle fp1 device and never lets my phone slow. Elegance is packed with more than 700 customized icons and developer told me that he will be adding more icons in future updates.

Homescreen and Icons

The default wallpaper is blurred and less shiny. Never hurts your eyes, however the design could be improved. Additional wallpaper pack, provided by the developer is beautiful and suits the design of Elegance. I would suggest one to prefer the additional wallpaper pack to default one.

Icons of Elegance are the best ever I have seen. Purely unique and neverseen design lets you feel different. Many colors are used n the icon-pack developing a multi-colored feel. Icons are like quadrilateral buttons giving you feel of pressing thumbs on pillows, 🙂 .

Topbar Elements

Almost all toggles in the topbar are implemented very cutely. The above image shows all elements open and closed respectively.

Keyboard

The next best thing of the theme is the keyboard. Shaded black keyboard is nice to both your eyes and ease of writing. Feels very convenient while using and as speedy as default keyboard. BTW, more elegant-ness and smoothness were required.

Calendar and Calling
Dialer however not the perfect but its transparent nature suits the design. Actually, I loved the dialer only due to the transparentness… otherwise nothing new.

The calendar look is quite nice too.

Web Browsing

The navigation bar of Nokia Browser as well as other tabs are elegantly customized. Feels good when using the buggy Nokia Browser. The theme is very light and never slows the browser down.

The gallery is covered by the element of elegance at top and the strip bar at bottom. Cool looking!

Music Player

Almost all elements of music player has been changed with this theme.

Task Manager

Easy and smooth scrolling as always.

Over all Elegance is one of the best themes ever made for Symbian and is a must have for your Symbian^3 and Symbian^4 device. You can buy this theme from Nokia Store at a decent price of 1.99 United States Dollars or 35 Indian National Rupees. Price varies in different countries.

Please don’t download premium themes from spam/warez sites. Those can harm your device. Be a human. Support developers, support Symbian in its last days.
