Android is most customization mobile operating system and without having your device rooted 3rd party launchers like Apex/Nova/Go launchers can be installed.
Customization does not end there. You can install themes for these launchers and change look and feel of your OS. Icons, App Drawer, Dock & Font are some of the elements that can be themed by installing launcher themes.
Hundreds of themes are available in Google Play Store that can be downloaded and applied to launcher of your choice through theme settings and majority of them are free of cost too. Many of the free icon packs have donate versions too. Consider buying the donate versions to support development.
Here I am posting 10 best icon packs of my choice. Some of them are Paid but are worth every single ¢ you spent on them. You can find Play store links for download and pointers to developer websites too. You can find other icon packs from a developer from ‘More from developer’ tab on play store link page. I like all of these icons and they are just posted in random order. The list goes endless and you may find some other pack even better.
