Do you fancy the idea of having your Android screen display with rounded corners instead of the usual straight corners? Xiaomi devices and some Huawei devices running Android have had this feature for some time now. Smartphone giants Samsung and LG already have plans to join the wagon with the release of their flagship phones for 2017.
All thanks to the ingenuity of some developers, you can now add virtually any feature to your device; all they need do is to imagine it and then it becomes reality by developing an app for it.
Today’s tutorial is on how you can get this feature on your Android device without changing your phone or rooting it. All we shall be using is an app – Cornerfly by flyperinc – available on Playstore for free. Other notable mentions include Rounded Corners by Alexis Pautrot and Rounded Corner Screen by Appspack.

Steps On How To Use Cornerfly
