The Samsung Theme Store is flooded with thousands of dark themes but all of them don’t support Samsung One UI 2 and One UI 3.0. The Samsung Galaxy themes I purchased for my Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S10 no longer theme my Note 10 Plus and Galaxy S20 completely. If you are looking for the best Samsung themes that work flawlessly on the latest One UI, I’ve come with a list of 30 beautiful dark themes for your Galaxy phone that work on Android 9. 10 and 11.
Browsing hundreds of themes, downloading and trying them is really a time-taking and data-consuming job. I spent hours exploring the Theme Store and shortlist the best Samsung themes. Most of the themes listed below are black and dark because dark themes look great on Samsung’s AMOLED display, save battery, and save eyes from digital eye strain.
Personally, I don’t like the One UI’s default dark theme. However, there are a bunch of 3rd-party dark themes that can customize every aspect of the One UI including, the lock screen, phone dialer, contacts, quick settings, and notification panel, messaging, calendar, calculator, keyboard, file manager, SystemUI, and so on. Without any further ado, let’s check out the best Samsung themes available right now.
Out of the 30 dark Samsung themes listed below 15 are free and the remaining themes are premium. If you like white or light themes, don’t forget to check out these 20 best light Samsung themes.
Before you proceed, however, you should also read my tutorials to learn how you can boot your Samsung device into the Download mode and Recovery mode, and download the latest Samsung firmware.
Note: Since the Samsung theme download links can’t be shared, I have provided the exact keywords that you can use to search for the themes and download them. You
1. Blac UI (Free)
Designed by Lucas Kendi, Blac UI is one of the best free dark themes that fully supports Samsung One UI 1.0 and One UI 2.0. The theme has a beautiful blue and black wallpaper with a material design. Blue and green highlights on a dark background make Blac UI look awesome. The use of colorful icons in the Settings interface is the best thing about this theme. Blac UI has been my favorite dark theme because of its premium feel and clean looks. The theme works perfectly on phones like Galaxy A20, Galaxy A50, Galaxy A80, Galaxy S10, Note 10 and I have no doubt it’ll work on other Galaxy phones as well.
2. Black Onix (Free)
Black Onix is another awesome dark theme for Samsung Galaxy phones running One UI 1 or One UI 2. It has been there for 3 years in the Theme Store and it keeps getting regular updates. Black Onix has a pitch-black background and blue and purple highlights that look really cool. The use of gradients in the dialer and menu tabs add it further charm. I used this theme on my Galaxy S8, S9, and now on Note 10+.
Blck Onix is a free theme but it has all premium features. It also comes with a beautiful AOD. It is definitely one of the best Samsung themes you must install and try.

The theme has been developed by Performance Design and is available in 2 variants with little tweaks. You can enjoy this theme for free.

Designed by Naveen Rai, Azure is a minimal and material theme for Samsung Galaxy devices. It has a very clean design and everything looks just perfect.

In my view, this is one of the best Samsung themes that you should check out on your Samsung device.
