The Hobbit Xperia Theme_2Yes, we know it’s Christmas Day, but if any of you are still on the interwebz we wanted to quickly let you know that Sony Mobile has released an official The Hobbit Xperia Theme to mark the release of “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” movie. This is the last in the trilogy of films by Peter Jackson.

The theme has some nice touches, such as the ‘Eye of Sauron’ used to depict the trash can. Overall though it seems half-finished, with no new graphic icons in the menu settings. If you want to download it for yourself, head over to the Google Play Store. Now back to the presents…

A nice touch is the ‘Eye of Sauron’ graphic opening when you want to delete an app.

The settings menus are lacklustre, with just mustard coloured switches and no alternative graphics.

    It’s really ugly, but it’s still really cool that Sony does this! :)

    When Sony will revamp their UI? It’s been 3 years and Sony’s UI looking really dated with each day. HTC is doing wonderful job with their Sense recently. Sense is beautiful and it’s compliment HTC’s beautiful hardware. Sony’s Xperia is also beautiful looking device but their UI doesn’t compliment the way it should be. Even LG update their UI with G3. Sony really need some serious remap this time with lolipop. Some of the icons (settings, messanger, dialer icons) looks really ugly now. Anyone visiting this site work for Sony? Can somebody give a reliable information about their UI update programme?

    Sony updated their UI with Z1. And no, they’re not changing their UI with lollipop.

  • Shehab Skull

    mmmmmm cool but swichers and check buttons are missing any theme should change these “pngs” !

  • mUSICA

    Meri xmas… hope this new yr sony changes thier fortune

  • mUSICA

    lolipop could bring new ui.. so hope for the bst

  • Fan of Xperia device

    I’ll be really disappointed If they won’t revamp their UI with lollipop. I believe a lot of people are waiting for a fresh UI for Xperia. Sony needs to create sth special with Z4 like HTC did with their original one. They’re going through tough time it’s time to start sth from the fresh. Small bazeled omnibalaned Xperia with new UI would look really cool. And they need to fix their superior auto mode ASAP.

    Not compatible with SP :/

    UI/UX is important, it’s such a big mistake if Sony don’t care much about it.

    Sony should create XPERIA theme and Live wallpaper from its PlayStation games and release them every months for example God of War theme, Bloodborne theme, Infamous Theme, Uncharted Theme, GTA5 Theme, The Last of Us theme, Final Fantasy 15 Theme, Devil May Cry Theme and etc.

  • ShinOrochiX

    I’m very sure Sony will revamp their UI with lollipop, it will be significantly different, all the little things like material design in the native apps, will add up and the UI will be overhauled.

    On topic: Guys who say these themes are ugly, I agree some are, but only recently I actually tried some e.g. the christmas one off of the play store and to my surprise they are actually very nice and lightweight.

  • Santa

    I want MetalGearSolid, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare amd Destiny Themes hehe

  • quitblues

    cant you just release sth normal??

  • Venom

    I want circular icons
    Can Sony change all app Icons to circle?

  • Rifqi Al Fariz

    The UI doesn’t matter. Lolipop xperia update gonna be something sweet. What really matter is 16gb storage since the original Z and nothing changed. That makes me cry, while the other brand had 64gb storage on board. Only God knows what will happen to next Z series.

    Btw, thank you again XB.. Keep posting information!

  • Ratnesh

    no compatible with 4.3.fuck off sony

    The UI is Ugly, Boring and Outdated.

  • Ritwij

    They will bring a new UI on Z4. They won’t bring the new UI on lollipop, because I’m hoping lollipop would come before Z4.

  • David Vargas

    This interface in general (totally) looks outdated and very 2010’s no matter if you use a theme or not. I’m really hopping a substantial change in the Xperia’s UI with Lollipop.

  • David Vargas

    Yeah, there’s a lot of pretty nice User Interfaces out there. I prefer a minimalistic and colorful interface over a interface full of shades, gradient colors, and filled with a lot of details that overcharge the user experience.

    Even Samsung with their TouchWiz are going in the right way, they are making TouchWiz more visually light and good looking in the latest iteration.

    Would be great if Sony reply one of this post. :D

  • Timel

    Sorry but I think Sony will never reply to your comment or any comment on this site. Xperiablog is not even a Sony official website LoL but.. I hope at least Sony will come to this site and then read and listen and take some comments (like yours and mine and exactly not those stupid blind comments for brainless fanboys) to improve their products. Thx!

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Pls, can you show us “Up to date” UI ?

  • Nemanja Raškovi?

    I’m fine with SONY UI :)

  • Syed Ameen

  • me

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker
