Linebit – Icon Pack
Linebit Icon Pack is developed by Edzon DM which provides you with simplistic designs that can match up with the needs of your device.
Linebit series is best icon pack if you are planning to fuse it with solid colour wallpapers while the linebit series is quite colourful with the Light and SE versions are white and purple. This is one of the best icon pack that I would highly recommend you to try.
Voxel icon pack is the next on our list. This icon pack is all about squares, simple colours and long shadows. Every icon has a colourful square with a white icon casting a beautiful long shadow due to which it matches with every home screen wallpaper and gives it a minimalist look.
Voxel has around 3000 icons and the list keep on increasing every day as the developer is always busy introducing new icon designs.
Göktuğ ULAŞ is another developer with a bunch of icon packs. Most of Göktuğ’s work sticks to the established norm (flat style, round icons) with various bits of flair or additions to achieve a different sort of look.
That includes the Graby, Mellow Dark, Rugos (our favorite), Olmo and Yomira. The most interesting looking one of the bunches is Flax. It features rectangular shapes that you don’t see very often. All of the packs feature thousands of icons, Muzei support, and more. They’re also fairly cheap.
Whicons and Zwart are two contrasting aspects of the same coin because Whicons features all white icons whereas zwart features all black icons.
If you want an ultra-minimal setup this icon pack can be your one stop solution.
Elta Icon Pack
Elta icon packs are developed by voxel icon pack and similar to voxel icon pack it takes original icon colour as its background and them overlays it with the white outline icon.
The differentiating factor or voxel and Elta is that voxel ahs squared shaped icons while elta has circle shaped icons.
Lines Free – Icon Pack
Being a fan of minimalism, this icon pack had to be our favorite. It gives a consistent look throughout your phone by turning its icons similar their pencil sketch with sharp edges. It removes all the purples and greys that you hate from the icons and places them on a perfect background.
Zwart – Black Icon Pack
Zwart is specially designed for the lovers of dark themes. This icon pack supports around 5 thousand icon styles with cloud wallpaper and highly flexible calendar and multi-launcher support. It is compatible with around 2 thousand Android applications. Just make sure you’re using a custom launcher with this icon pack.
Materialistik is an icon pack which is inspired by material design. Icons are a combination of dark and light colours which are used in an effective way t give out a whole 3D look to your device.
It has a collection of more than 4200 designs and icons in the pack which also comprise of 130 cloud-based wallpapers to compliment these minimal icons.
It is by far one if the best icon pack available on the play store and guess what, it’s totally free and has scintillating design which help you to enhance your device and give it a complete makeover.
Also, some of the icon packs of Polycon are better than existing icons of your device and the customization of icons through this icon pack give your device a subtle but noticeable look.
Moonrise Icon Pack
In contrast the first two icon packs, Moonrise comes with loud colors and funky icons. It is designed by sleek vector graphics with a highly interactive dashboard.
Akin to Zwart, it also supports cloud wallpaper and has over 1 thousand premium icons. Sources predicted that it is soon going to be compatible with Google calendars.
CandyCons – Icon Pack
CandyCons is an animated icon pack designed based on Google’s material design language. It supports over 1 thousand icons which is an extravagant number. Like Zwart, it is recommended to install a custom launcher with CandyCons. It also has a dynamic google calendar and a blueprint dashboard. Lastly, you will get multiple color variants of a single icon.
Nate Wren Design
Nate Wren Design is one of the icon pack which seems to come with out of the box idea. Its patterns don’t seem to follow a particular type of design. It has Pip Tec features small, matrix green style icons while glass has a semi-transparent style to it.
It consists of a flight which is a good pack for minimalists as its lines. Rad pack comes with a decent design which you will either love or hate. This is a pretty good icon pack which can be a good choice if you love experiments.
Two-pixel light icon pack consists of 2500+ icons and 30+ high quality wallpapers which have simple pinkish outlines which makes it neat and clean in appearance.
This icon pack have a transparent look coupled with an eloquent app drawer.
Glass pack have a transparent icon pack which are shiny and glossy and are compatible with all android devices.
This icon pack will make sure that all the icons wholly complement with the background wallpaper of your device. It provides you with option of around 200 wallpapers.
Linebit light has a collection of 2180+ icons with 22 high quality wallpapers. It has a beautiful linear icon which gives a pretty decent look to your device. Linebit icons are best suited with darker wallpaper.
It is quite different than the rest of the icon packs mentioned above and there are two things that make it so. First, it keeps the original color and design of icons.
Secondly, it lets you design them according to how you want based on color, shape and size. As the name suggests, the icons are highly adaptable to the theme you’re using in your smartphone.
O3 Icon Pack
O3 icon pack is my personal favourite reason being is that this icon pack is compatible with multiple launcher. It has handmade stylish icons which gives a vibrant look to your device.
The icons of this icon pack seemed to be hardly worked upon and innovations can be recognized easily through the design of the icons. Icons are creative and innovative with the best designs and overall it gives a fresh and new look to your device when applied.
Golden Icons is compatible with more than 2 thousand Android applications and covers over 5 thousand icons. Despite that, the developers of Golden Icons continue to work on improvising it and releasing updates frequently. This why it provides multi-launcher support and similar to other icon packs, cloud wallpapers and not-static calendar.
Icon Pack Studio
It is more of an icon editor than an icon pack. The developers of Icon Pack Studio believe that the best icons on your smartphone are the ones you design yourself. It has left no stone unturned to empower users by giving advanced editors with bezels, shadows, filters and different resizing options. Due to it being an icon editor, its developers claim that Icon Pack Studio supports almost all phones.
The 19 icon packs we have selected here largely take care of all your needs—including affordability as they all are free to download from the play store.
