Created by Guzzl3r, Buuf Deuce is a theme which is originally named, in my opinion. This theme has almost everything that a theme buyer would want, including a really nice looking HTC-style clock, custom-made icons, a hidden today, and room for extra icons on the homescreen, while delivering it to you perfectly.
The first look at this theme will leave you with a feeling that it is clunky-in the sense that it's an eyesore. However, using this theme for a few minutes will most definitely prove you wrong. The homscreen features an HTC-style clock with a weather slot, a dock, a hidden dock, and a normal banner with a clock, date and weather slot. Above this, there is a hidden today feature-click on the notifications bar, and a today screen shows up, with previews for your calendar items and new messages.
Many keyboard shortcuts are included, which are:
- alt+D shows the first dock.
- alt+S shows the second-hidden-dock.
- alt+C hides the HTC clock and shows the normal banner.
- Alt+X hides the banner and shows the HTC clock.
- The Escape button hides the dock that was active, so that you have no docks visible.
Another major advantage of having this theme are the custom-made icons. Any theme that has the original icons from RIM, unless they are the OS6/OS6.1 icons, is immediately deleted from my phone. I just can't stand them. Call me creative, because I have to have original icons in my theme. Guzzl3r, however, has gotten these icons to flow perfectly with the feel of the theme. Looking as if they were drawn and colered in with watercolors, the icons give the theme a playful appearance-a good thing in any theme.
Now, on to the disadvantages...which really aren't that many. The dark background gives this theme a dark-looking feel, which is not really the road that most theme deveopers want to head down. Other than that issue, which can be easily solved by changing the wallpaper, the theme is masterfully created, with much attention to detail.
