Take the Dusk Theme one Step Further
If you’re a fan of the original Dusk theme for Manila, or have just started using the Dusk EVO theme for WVGA devices, it might irritate you that not everything on your device is skinned the same way.
Luckily, some of our members have developed themes for popular applications that mirror the Dusk look and feel.
Spigot has created a 3G-enabled WVGA dialer that integrates fully with Manila 2.5. There are several versions available with different color schemes, (a higher version number doesn’t mean an improvement on the first, just that it’s a different theme) including one designed to match the look of the Dusk theme exactly. Have a look in the thread for more details.
If you’re a fan of the Swype keyboard, you might also want to take a look at tacchan23‘s Dusk Skins for Swype. As the name suggests, these go very well with the popular theme, and are available in blue, green, red, pink and black variations. These skins should work in portrait mode on any VGA or WVGA device with Swype pre-installed, although support for WVGA and QVGA is improving, only one skin color has been released for these so far, you can find them in this thread.

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
