For starters, the customization of lock screens is now more extensive ranging from fonts and widgets to wallpapers and videos. There is also richer theming with users having the option of automatic or manual color palette selection.
Inside the home screen, stacked widgets are now enabled. But this feature debuted as Smart widgets on the Galaxy S22. Samsung is now shipping this to other Galaxy handsets through OneUI 5. Besides these new looks, the fifth iteration of OneUI is also focused on security, privacy, and performance.
