unnamed_7_One of Sony’s big new features in the Android 4.3 firmware update is “Xperia Themes”. These are downloadable theme packs available from Sony Select, allowing you to change the custom user interface. Whilst we’re still waiting for the Android 4.3 update to hit the Xperia Tablet Z, the screenshots below show how these ‘Xperia Themes’ will look once released. These themes are a nice addition and we can’t wait to give them a try, adding that extra bit of personalisation.










Thanks Ben!

  • Sh’ Dynasty

    Cant wait till they add more.

  • spatch

    So ugly, this is not like Sony at all. Seems like something Samsung might try…

  • 4.3 for xperia z please .

    With Sony’s 4.3 it will be possible to most Xperia device. Just wait for the update.

    And who said on-screen navigation buttons were a waste? I’d say it’s worth it for these customized looks. Others can enjoy their separate and boring capacitive buttons

  • Ben Lim

    xperia ion please…

  • Dat Leopard Theme <3

    Now I *really* want the 4.3 update for my XTZ!

  • ibanez7

    Wow, I can’t wait to get 4.3 Jelly Bean update for my TX, and make some themes ;)

  • digitalteddybear


  • digitalteddybear

    On xperia z ultra it looks really stylish. Feels like a really good Symbian theme.

  • Brian Byron De Guzman

    I hated these new themes for Xperia ZQ (android 4.3), now i only get an totally white background on menus (also calendar, and other places), that sucks, i want my black background menus skin back.

  • anita singh

    me too . i hate this white background after updating to jelly bean 4.3 andriod

  • Alisa

    I honestly hate these themes since they have very light background in Settings menu. Android just erased ALL nice black backgrounds. Why? Is it so hard to leave at least ONE pure black theme???

  • Moehamad Pay

    unfortunately it can not be run on xperia L,,
    Xperia L waiting 4.3 :P

  • Jd

    I really have no idea how most people find these good. Seriously Sony, just bring back the old black theme. We all love it, you know, actual real life people. White is just not for xperia. If I want hipster white theme, I would’ve gone to iphone

  • GK

    Letting my Xperia Z update to 4.3 was the biggest mistake I could’ve made. The all white looks horrible, not to mention that it’s just not as clear. Also, there’s no reason why they couldn’t have easily given us an all black option, not to mention that white uses battery, while black doesn’t. What a turn off. If I had wanted an iphone, that’s what I would have bought. Going from 4.3 back to 4.2.2 is very time consuming and difficult. Never give them the option to update when everything is already working fine.

  • GK

    4.3 looks horrible. I should have known better. Never allow updates if everything is already running fine. I know it isn’t going to make much difference, but also, white uses battery, black doesn’t.
