    So, I've finally gotten an opportunity to get hands on with both the LG V40 and the OnePlus 6t. I have to say, both phones have some awesome hardware, but at the end of the day the LG feels more polished, and has a lot more features that are important for me, hardware wise. Software-wise, however, the 6t feels almost perfect. OxygenOS adds so many useful features and touches that make it a fantastic Android experience. I only wish I could take the OnePlus experience and put it straight in the V40's hardware. Since I can't, I have to ask if anyone has found a good theme for LG that adds a solid dark mode for the notification center and Settings. Preferably with a blue accent if at all possible. I've looked, but most of LG's themes seem to just be for the home screen, lock screen, and AOD, which are things I can change myself fairly easily. It's the notification center and Settings that I can't change on my own. Keep in mind, it has to be something that works with Pie when it gets released (so no Substratum).

    How do you like the V40 so far?

    The themes in the LG theme store do effect the settings pages.

    It's too bad one of the theme developers for the LG phones is not doing any themes for the v40.

    His themes for the G6, G7, V20, V30, etc were really good.

    It's pleasantly large, and the notch isn't that noticeable. The chin is very small, but the side bezels aren't any smaller than the V30 (which I don't mind at all, but some do). The frame feels a lot more grippy and it feels a little curvier due to the back glass. I liked my hands on with it and look forward to being able to purchase one.

    Thanks for letting me know. Have you found any that affect the notification center? Seems strange to alter Settings but not the NC.

    Is there a chance he will? Still relatively early.

    Apparently he lives in Canada and the V40 isn't available there, according to him.

    I could've sworn it was. Darn that's unfortunate. I really just want LG's UI but dark mode instead. Or something similar. Just simple and dark.

    Update: I've installed his Pixel experience for the V30 and it's exactly what I wanted in every way. This man should work for LG. I seriously hope he manages to pick up a V40 because this was completely worth the $1.49 in every way. Thank you for letting me know about him.
