    I agree that it's a nice change from the teal. Maybe we need to send a suggestion to Samsung to add the ability to change the theme color.

    It's terrible. Textra until it gets changed. Simply seeing it in this thread reminds me how hideous it is. I am sure it is an evil joke.

    I decided to just go with the color and make the best of it. I went to zedge and found a pretty background.

    Everyone switching to iPhones - make my life a living hell by sending me your Note 4s so I have to look a the orange on more than one screen at a time. I'll even post a funny picture of myself screaming at all the orange if I get three or more of them.

    ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha I hope so bad you're being serious. That would be so freaking funny if someone actually jumped to the iPhone because they didn't like the orange, and refused to download any one of 50 other amazing text messaging apps from the play store. PLEASE tell us you're serious.

    getting rid of the phone because of the ugly orange color only?

    Really?? Has the world gone effing nuts? First a guy dumps his note 4 because he won't try a reset. Now this.

    What are you going to do if Apple changes colors to something you find offensive? You guys must have a **** load of disposable income.

    Have any of you heard of the plethora of messaging apps you can try?

    Yep. I think a complimentary background makes all the difference. I think it looks good!

    Get Handcent, you can customize just about every nook and cranny of the application. Textra, is far too restrictive.

    Well, might try Handcent now. And the complimentary background does help that you guys posted. But I would NEVER get rid of my phone for a dreadful iPhone.....no. way.

    I have an LG G2, so maybe it won't work the same, but I also couldn't stand the new color and found my way to this forum. I may have found a solution, so I came back to hopefully give some reprieve to everyone's rods and cones... Try going to Settings>Accessibility>Color Adjustment. From there, you are supposed to slide your finger to change the contrast. I have not figured out how to get exactly the colors I want, BUT I do know that just by playing around with it, I have gotten rid of the hideous orange! Let me know if it works for you!

    That orange has sent me running to Textra as well.

    Not sure if I will stay with Textra because I do like the stock app, but I can't handle that orange. I wish Samsung would let you pick the color of your choice.

    im loving the orange look. Plus the fonts and overall design of the app makes it look more "material" designed that goes along with the look of lollipop.

    As a boy, it's harder to find an orange wallpaper that doesn't make me feel like I'm going full on Jenner.

    It works after a fashion. Be advised that this changes colour across apps and not just the messaging app. At least it can be easily reset to the default.

    That's exactly right. It changes colors in places I never even noticed... But, it is easy to set to a color scheme you can tolerate and even easier to turn off and on, at your leisure. It isn't ideal, by any means, and I wish we could have a setting to choose something more desirable, but the "work-around," if it can be called that, might at least keep some people from switching to the dreaded iPhone!

    P.S. If it makes anyone feel any better, the orangish color on my LG is WAY worse than the true orange I'm seeing posted from Samsung owners! I would post a screenshot, if I didn't think it make someone physically sick.

    So far I am staying with Textra. That Google orange and no way to change it is not cool.
