    Welcome to the new world.

    You may have Android Lollipop / 5.0 then.

    The theme is white, sadly, and I am not looking forward to it on my Note 3 either.
    The Note 4 already has a white theme.

    The good news is they are working on a dark theme.

    For the moment you can install a launcher app like Nova, which is simple to use, and apparently can negate the white theme on Lollipop.

    I started using Nova on a simple level with my Note 3.

    so sorry I installed it - mind you as a novice I am not sure I had a choice... anyway, I dont think I can continue with it, I may have to revert to my old S3. I also notice I dont get any sound notification when a msg comes in and it no longer
    appears on the locked screen, even though I set it up to do both.

    Thanks for registering. It may be Nova will not change the white settings menu, I have read. I hope it's enough of a temporary fix.

    You're right. A launcher will change just the drawer background. For the settings you need to root your phone and see if there's a dark theme available already.

    Or don't screw the phone and continue with retina burns until a dark theme is finalised. I'm convinced it's coming out soon. I read two articles a while back.

    I haven't heard the latest on a full dark theme emerging. I don't have a Samsung any more and it's not really as bad on my Moto G.

    You could start a thread / question in the Ask Any Question or General Help and How To forums.
    Someone will have better insight.

    It's got to the point where Android M is not far from release, afaik.

    Welcome to the Android Central.
