Lustre HD

For anyone that uses custom icons on their Android devices, I am sure you have heard the name kovdev mentioned before. They are the creators of the popular Tersus and Lustre icon packs that you have probably spotted on this site a few times.

Well, with display resolutions going up, kovdev are currently working on updating their icon packs to work well with the new displays. The first to receive this HD update is Lustre, and we have 10 copies of the icon pack to giveaway. Each individual icon has been upscaled, by hand, to XXHDPI for the ultimate clarity. Ready to win one? 

Update: We have emailed our 10 winners! Thanks for entering, folks!

How to enter:

  1. Tell us below in the comments section the number one reason you love the Android OS.


At around 6:15PM PST (after tonight’s Droid Life Show), we will pick our 10 winners and email them.

If you want to check out the current Lustre app, you can find it on Google Play for $1.50. Inside there is a great selection of wallpapers that compliment the icons nicely. In general, it’s a great and easy way to change up the look of your device.

  • Jason Elkins

  • antwonw


  • kixofmyg0t

    My favorite thing about Android is, Choice.

    You have so many options, so many choices, anything and everything you can think of you can do/have/make for the most part.

    Starting from the device itself, we have a smorgasbord of Android devices to choose from. W/e you like, there’s a device that is suited for you.

    The Os is built on choice. Don’t like how your launcher works/looks? Good because there’s 100 to choose from on the market (Google Play w/e). Everything from the speedy Nova launcher to the “what were they smoking to come up with this?” QM launcher and everything in between.

    You can tailor damn near everything to your liking. You have near limitless choice. That’s my favorite part of Android.

  • I have been watching looks of youtube videos about Android customization, which is the best part about being an android user, so I decided to try it for myself which has been really fun. I have waiting on buying an icon pack for a deal or a giveaway so this happens at a pretty great time.

  • Lesser Version

    It’s not a walled garden with rotten fruit!

  • The Customization and the community just for starters

  • Patrick Maher

    The ability to customize and make the software on your device unique.

  • Ilan Alpert

    Fully customizable

  • ryan f

    I’ll give you 2. Customization.. and the freedom of choice! There is a different phone type out there for everyone
