Dark N97 Theme: Is Your Phone Sketchy?

by Mike Macias on August 18, 2009


Do you ever get sick of classy and professional? Don’t get me wrong I love a clean theme, but sometimes I come across one that makes my device feel fun and carefree. Mr. Sauromatum has created a theme called “Black Sketch” which makes the entire Symbian UI powering your N97 feel like it was drawn out by hand. Add to that a great contrasting color set – black and white – and you have yourself a very plain yet creative theme.


Despite all the scratchy lines I’ve yet to find any bugs in this theme.

Personally I use the version with the default icons since I like having uniformity and the custom icon version doesn’t have many 3rd party icons I use.

Check out a few screenshots from my N97:

I’ve been using this Black Sketch on my black N97 for a few days now and absolutely love it. I would also love to see Mr. tehkSeven steal this idea and create a sketch version of his own someday ;-) I’m sure it would come out fabulous.

    Looks kickas, somehow softer on the eye than the conventional straight line S60 5th ed theme.

    I never like to look like a newbie. But is there a option to put qwerty keyboard on the screen?
    Mine just has Alphanumeric and handwriting input options.

    Nice theme by the way. I'll sure check it.

    Hi Felipe, no option for qwerty keyboard on the N97 screen, sadly. I wouldn't use it too much but I know many who say they would.

    Well, I am asking because in the screenshot of the theme, a qwerty keyboard appears. This theme is also for another phone?

    Oh yes, that is for the Nokia 5800xm. It doesn't have a real keyboard. But still, it can't hurt for Nokia to add it to the N97.
