Hello. Had my new phone since Monday, today I decided to try out some themes. They change my icons and my background but my text screen and status bar remain the same. Just had the same ones working on my s10+ before the swap. Any idea what I could be doing wrong? Or is it just the S20 ultra?

I figured out that it doesn't work unless dark mode is set. So you need to reset it to clear mode, then all the themes will work.

Did you check to see if that theme has an update for the S20 Ultra?

I'm using an all black theme that I used on my s10. I'm talking about in the notification bar all of my highlighted settings like wifi and data and phone rotation and all of that is blue and when I'm texting the highlighted word at the top of the keyboard is blue too on my s20 but with the s10 it turned all of that dark grey with the theme.
