I'm trying to see if there's a way (maybe an app) to change the built-in lock screen to one that either imitates or full-on emulates Sony's Xperia's lock-screen.
Forewarning: I'm not going to root my phone for this. I have enough problems with Google snooping around. Don't need malware getting more than it needs.
I understand that there are plenty of apps that include a customized lock-screen UI/design, but I specifically want the lock-screen that Xperia uses/implements.
What I don't get is if people have been able to come out with the apps that do this, what's stopping someone from porting the code or creating an app that let's the user select from different themes with regard to lock-screen design?
What I'm asking for seems to be possible by rooting my device, but I'd rather not do that.
For reference, I'm running Android Marshmallow on my Samsung S5.
