For the majority of its life Android has had a dark UI (color text on black background), then it switched to light background on Android 6.

Android 7 will feature a "night mode" which will permit to restore the black background, having the standard UI in reverse colors.

While waiting for it, is there a "dark" theme for Android 6 that would have the same effect?

    Themes are plenty, although the majority of them are available only for custom ROM users. – Death Mask Salesman Aug 2 '16 at 22:00
  • I'm not looking for a standard dark theme. I'm looking for the default Android UI (or at least something very similar) on black background. – dr01 Aug 3 '16 at 10:18

    @dr01 You can't theme stock Android. Also, this post seems to be off-topic for Android Enthusiasts, as it is asking for software recommendations. – Ash Aug 3 '16 at 16:39

Apparently the "night mode" promised for Android 7 hasn't been implemented after all, but there's a High Contrast Theme by Samsung for Android 7 that works in a similar way.
