My take :)
EDIT: This is the icon pack I'm using :)
I'm a huge fan of Min after a long time of using Iride UI (went from saturated, cartoon-y to minimalistic).
It blends in beautifully especially with dark/night-themed backgrounds such as mine.
Isn't this literally just the Min icon pack from Android....?
Edit: sigh. I actually own Min which is why I noticed quite quickly. But yeah, here are some of the icons OP is trying to pass off as his, straight from Min's icon pack.

Also comes in a black varient
It depends on what is your definition of minimisation.
Android lets you customise everything. You can delete all app icons from your screen, or you can install different "minimalist" icon sets like this. You are absolutely free to do what you want with it. So if you want to achieve some level of minimalist aesthetic, you can.
Also, you can use different versions of android which are build by the community, some of them are extremely lightweight and such.
Apple, on the other hand, does not allow you to customise the look of your phone. The icons are given, the grid is given (which means you can't change how many icons are in the row. On Android you can). iOS has its own visual language and you are not able to change or customise it. Apple does leave you less control. And this is the deal breaker.
When I had Android, I could get it to look minimal, but I kept thinking about different ROMs, different icon sets. I played with it every single day. My brain was busy with my phone. It used to fun, at first, but then I just got tired of that. So, for me Apple does better job. But that's just me, tho.
In all transparency, this theme is incredibly simple and mostly about the incredible Saint Laurent aesthetic as opposed to function.
wallpaper - saint laurent lookbook
icons - the classic Min
clock and date - custom uccw widgets set in roboto
design choices - highlight an overwhelmingly dark aesthetic with pops of white, make all icons accessible from bottom right thumb, strip away everything else

TAKING IT FURTHER
"Further?" I hear you say. Yes, further.
Install Glyphs by Tokem (its an icon pack) from inside the folder of things you downloaded. If that isn't your style or there aren't enough icons for you, I recommend using Min.
Set your Drawer Color to #9eec22
Remove any background color.
Set your Drawer Style to "Vertical"
Bam! Now your Drawer fits your homescreen!

Theme made in KLWP.
Trying to make something out of that wallpaper was a fun challenge. I played around with using the animated version of it, but that just ended up being unpleasant to look at.
Made in KLWP as usual.
Not much to say about this one. Wanted to make a dark theme without any elements touching the phone borders. Probably could have put a bit more functionality into it, but I wasn't too happy with the wallpaper so I didn't want to spend more time on it.
I'm using this icon pack :)
The icon pack is Min.
The music widget is one of the styles available in the widget that comes with the Poweramp music player.
Both are excellent and highly recommended.
Min is the only one I think would work. It's a cool, unique wall but the colors won't match any colorful icon packs. Compacticons or one of the glyph icon packs (Glyphsy, etc.) might work...
I'm using Nova Launcher with minimalistic design and an (almost) AMOLED black wallpaper/Material Black theme from theme store: [link]
Yeah! Missed that In my used resources comment. It's one of the wallpapers included in the Min Icon pack. I'll add the icon pack to my comment.
So I just started playing Destiny and love the art style for the map. I made the widget in Zooper and the two orbiting dots make a clock (inner ring is hours).
The wallpaper is a PS4 screenshot from just after the Title screen and the icon pack is Min
All in Nova.
Would love feedback and suggestions for a second screen!
Edit: Fixing links.
I think the icon pack in the picture is Min (this is the one I use and me Gmail icon looks just like that), but I'm not sure on the launcher being used. Could be Nova with some quick toggles widget on the top and the Lollipop 'home' circle on the bottom replaced (or removed), I'm not sure.
it is min :)
I used Min, and Whicons. You can use Nova Launcher to use two different icon packs. Just long press an icon and click the edit button.
I've been a huge fan of Min since switching to android. I really just can't find anything to replace it.
Screenshot of my homescreen.
Min for a good minimalist icon pack. The icons are white so it's good against a dark background. I keep trying to find a better icon pack and keep going back to this one.
Icon Pack: Min Icon Pack
Widget: Modified one of Europa for Zooper's widgets.
Hope I didn't miss anything :)
I like it.
Though I would personaly have opted for white icons like Min and probably a less dark wallpaper. But that's just how I would see it :P
I also dig the nougat style google bar widget.
In my opinion, the widget in the center should be the focal point but your icons seem to stand out a little too much. I'd recommend trying out min icon pack or simply making your icons smaller.
Then create a folder with desired apps, long press and hold. Edit icons, click on min icon pack and search for which icon you need.
Enjoy and screenshot how it looks when your done :).
If you like the smaller icons, check out min and minoir.
Thank you! Just using Nova launcher, Min Icon Pack and it's this clock pack for KWGT.
I am having a hard time remembering where I got that wallpaper, but this is very similar.
Min icon pack:
It's the Min - Icon Pack. I saw it in the homescreen of another Redditor myself who then recommended it. It's really awesome!
I don't know what you mean by dots folders. These are just apps whose icons I have changed to dot images -- I think from the <u>Min</u> icon pack.
You could do the same with folders, if that's what you're looking for.
Wallpaper is Light Leakage by KNXT in the Backdrops app. Icons are min in the Play Store. Everything else is designed by me. This is my first time theming with KLWP, so any pointers would be greatly helpful!
Icons: Min icon pack.
Wallpaper: Picture I found in r/itookapicture
Thanks! I'm sure there's a way to hide the bar but I don't personally know how; I don't think I'd do it anyway since only the clock info is redundant, the rest is still important.
The icon pack you can find it here [link]
I dont know any coloured ones, if thats the look you're going for. Right now I'm using a pack called min which I like quite a bit. I think it'd look nice on that wallpaper.
Here you are my friend
Looking closer I see what you mean about the phone, can't tell if my eye's just playing tricks on me though. None the less I love this icon pack, I've stuck with it for 2+ years now.
Min for me. I think I have some Tiny White icons thrown in too. I tend to prefer darker/simpler backgrounds and these icons go well with just about anything without being too overpowering.
Some good white icons are Min and Flight Lite. I cant think of any black and white ones at the moment though.
Icons: Min Icon pack
Yeah, I have two app draw buttons. The phone is a Galaxy Note 4, and with my current homescreen layout, I can't have an app draw button right in the middle of the homescreen icons. Advice?
It's also nice having a big area in the middle to hit to access my app drawer!
Launcher: Nova Prime
Icon Pack: Min
Clock & shadow widgets: Zooper Pro
Weather: Weather Timeline
Min - Icon Pack
Love the organization. Check out Nova Launcher for even more minimalism. You can swipe up on an icon to open a separate app (and edit which app you put there). Also, icon packs.. I use Min Icon Pack and its beautiful.
Min icon pack on screen for folders and stuff and Minimalism by DD-Ripper for the app drawer.
Alternatively, you can try Min, which is just plain white and would fit inside the squares. Here The reason why I am recommending these to you is because the stock icons look very different compared to the squares.
It's the Min Icon Pack. You will need a launcher to use it. I use Nova Launcher and it's great.
There is something similar in the Min Icon Pack. It's white though, you'd probably have to make one with Photoshop if you want the custom colors.
All you have to do is look up icon packs such as this icon pack I used [link], then go into the nova setting and go into look and feels tab and go into the icons pack selection I think and min should show up
Recently been using Min icon pack, I think my homescreen looks pretty slick!
Min Icon Pack
Using Nova Launcher
Clock Widget: Standard Google Clock Widget
Icon Pack: Min
Wallpaper: Cloud 9 Mobile Wallpaper from This Album
Music Widget: Jacks Music Widget
Born out of necessity. I have small hands and a largeish phone, so I like keeping things near the bottom of the screen.
Everything made in Kustom. Icons are a mix of Min and generic Google Material icons. Wallpaper.
Clock: Roboto clock
Weather: Zooper, made my own
I used Nova Launcher and the Min icon set.
I tried to emulate the position of the lock screen clock so when unlocked (via fingerprint) the icons and nav bar appear but nothing else changes.
Icon pack: Min
Play store link: [link]
Taken from some dudes upload of beautiful wallpapers for the nexus 6P. Can't be bothered finding links though. Sorry.
The icons seem super inconsistent. I'd recommend something like Min or Glyphs to match the style of some of the ones you have, but keep it the one style throughout.
Wallpaper (from r/wallpapers): [link]
Icon Pack : Min ([link])
Widget (music) : Poweramp Pro
Widget 2 - Google sound search
Launcher : Nova Prime - used to lower icon size and set up the grid as you see it.

Launcher: Nova Launcher
Icon Pack: Min - Icon Pack [link]
Widgets: Zooper Widget Pro and Min for Zooper Pro ( I made those boxes around the apps in Zooper and you have to enable widgets overlaping in the nova settings)
