The best icon packs for Android: 10 packs for ultimate customization

There are many ways to personalize your Android smartphone or tablet, from changing the wallpaper, to adding new ringtones or fonts, to installing a custom launcher. You can also do this by installing an icon pack, and you’ll find many great ones here, in our ultimate list of the best icon packs for Android.

1. Click UI (paid)

There are many icon packs out there that look similar to Click UI, but this one has a very fair claim to getting there first with this style. Even if it wasn’t the first, it is the best. Feel free to compare any icon in this pack to the equivalent from another, similar pack, and you will see what I mean.

The long shadows give the icons subtle sense of motion, and that applies to all 2,000 of them. Updates are frequent and there’s an icon-request tool included.

2. Retrorika (paid)

Bringing smooth vector graphics with a retro swing to Android, Retrorika takes material design and runs 30 years of cigarette smoke through it. Each icon brings a unique take on the original design, too; it’s a passion project, with a great attention to detail.

Retrorika is far and away the best icon pack for giving your device that paradoxical retro feeling inside a modern skin.

3. Polycon (free)

For a stock Android experience with some pizazz, Polycon comes in handy. Its icons are sleek, but have nice, noticeable touches that make them flourish in combination with pretty much any wallpaper. A major plus is that there are currently over 500 icons, so you’re unlikely to find yourself with unpalatable and incongrous missing icons, and there’s an icon request feature built in, for any that might not yet be covered.

It’s an icon pack that’s not afraid to stray from set shapes, so you get nice curves and corners to keep things visually stimulating without it all appearing messy. In fact, it all looks incredibly cohesive.

4. CandyCons (free)

Bringing Mater Design icons with a little handcrafted flourish is CandyCon’s forte. The pack has close to 1,000 icons at the minute, including multiple color choices for some of the more popular ones.

Not only does it have icons, but wallpapers, too, intended to complement the design aesthetic. There’s also an icon request feature, meaning that if, on the rare occasion, you don’t see the icon you’re looking for, the app-maker will put in the effort to include it in the next update for you.

9. Belle UI Icon Pack (free)

Belle UI Icon Pack is well, really pretty! It’s super clean looking and bright, offering over 950 icons for all your favorite apps, plus it’s compatible with most launchers and is completely free. Though there isn’t a wallpaper included, the style of each Vector graphics-created icon goes well with the look of all of these launchers.

10. Morena (paid)

The ‘flat’ trend for Android design is making its rounds, you may have noticed it with the new Galaxy S5 user interface, the flat Google logo, etc. Everyone wants to get away from the bubble-like, 3D font and icons and get back to basics. The Morena icon pack brings a minimalistic look to your display. Its icon catalogue is gigantic, and you’ll likely have hard time finding any faults in this app. Like many icon packs, this one is also paid.
