    Anyone know how or if it's even possible to change some of the background color (phone app, settings, etc) from white to black like it was on 4.4.2? Getting tired of Android constantly switching from white to black to white again.

    There's not an option that I'm aware of in those apps. You may be able to download a third-party dialer that can be themed, but the settings menu is what it is, I'm afraid.

    I don't it. Things are trending towards whites & bright colors. Android lollipop even has white behind the app icons in the app drawer.

    Rocket Dial seems to be made for the Notes. Besides black ability, it's very customizable and just seems to say "Note".
    Here's a screenshot of my setup with callers intentionally scratched through.

    Just throwing this out there... if your intention was to make sure we couldn't read anything when you scratched it all out, you might want to try again and re-upload.

    Though, I do have to say (if you can't tell from the avi) I do appreciate the 540 area code

    If it were important or personal it'd be scratched out better. They were from my wife and insurance company, no biggie. I just didn't want anyone to think the app looks that bad is why I mentioned it.
    Thanks for the heads up
