    Does anyone know how to make the notification shade more legible? I find the all-white with invisible delineation lines very difficult to read. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Would increasing the text size help? Settings > Display > Screen Zoom and Font.

    Don't think this will affect the notification shade. Didn't on mine

    No. Everthing changes except for the notification shade.

    I've downloaded a dark theme and it also changed the notification panel as well. Now I can see and read what's on it so much better

    Is the op talking about the pull down menu with the toggles or the notification shade? The themes change the pull down menu, but not the notification shade.

    Actually you are correct. My apologies. The icons have a black background but the notifications still have a white one like your screenshots.

    Same question. I hate the white. It's hard to differentiate between the different notifications and the font is smaller. Hoping this can be themed... Maybe people just need to build it into the themes now...? Hopefully.

    Another complainer here Not only with "Blurry Notifications" the whole

    phone GUI=General user interfaces is difficult to read even with my

    glasses on,.Grrr but at least we can change the rest of the

    Screen appearance with a -Dark theme- Let's hope

    Google fix this issue in its 1st update

    There aren't any themes that change the notifcation shade. So, I assume that there won't be any that will. It must be locked down to developers.

    On Marshmallow, you could install Good Lock from the Samsung app store and that would allow you to change the theming on the notifications shade, along with a few other UI tweaks not available otherwise.

    I've seen no indication at all that Good Lock is moving forward, though. Sort of a head scratcher.
