In this guide I explain to you what the best tricks for your Samsung Galaxy in terms of customization. I show you what are the system settings that will allow you give a unique touch to your device. What I tell you here will be useful to you whether you have just buy a mobile with One UIor you’ve had it for a while. Do not miss it!
Change the color palette
Let’s start with something basic. I am referring to the possibility that One UI offers you to customize the color palette. In this way, you will be able to choose the scheme of the entire system, in addition to those applications compatible with Google Material 3.
Just follow these steps:
- Go to settings.
- Tap on Wallpaper and style.
- Press on Color palette.
- Activate the function.
- Select the color combination you prefer.
You can also use the color palette to the icons by activating the setting Apply palette to icons.
Take advantage of Samsung widgets
The android widgetsThey are a useful way to see information about your applications directly from the home screen. Samsung includes several widgets in its One UI customization layer that are especially recommended. Because?
The main reason I like Samsung widgets is that They fit perfectly with the design of the entire system. That makes everything look more coherent as far as the interface is concerned. Additionally, I also find them useful, giving quick access to One UI features as well as native Samsung apps.
Use One UI wallpapers
One UI comes with a ton of wallpapers that will give your device a more pleasant touch. You will find them in the section Wallpapers of system settings.
The funds specially included for Galaxy devices stand out, which are seen at the top of the list. But I also recommend that you try to create your own color combination, in the section Colorsor activate the Dynamic Lock Screenwithin the section wallpaper services.
If you spend some time learning about the options that your Galaxy mobile offers you in this regard, you can take One UI customization to the next level.
Squeeze the lock screen
The lock screen It is another section that you can customize on your mobile with One UI. How can you do?
Well, the first thing is to lock the phone. Then, long press on the lock screen. You will see that it moves away slightly and allows you to tap on the different elements. These are the things you can change on the lock screen:
- Bottom shortcuts.
- Add contact information.
- Change the clock size and its style.
- Modify the view of notifications.
- Access the wallpaper selector.
Change the ringtone
The background that appears when you call can be changed from the native phone app. Just open it and enter the settings.
Then tap call wallpaper and choose an image from the gallery. Samsung also allows you to create a augmented reality emojis animated for this section of the system. Oh, and as a background it is also possible to select a short video that will be seen when you receive a call.
Modify the screen zoom
You can change the zoom of the screen from the mobile settings, in the section Screen. Click on the section Screen zoom to modify this value easily.
If you want to make the font bigger or smaller, you can also do it from the section Font size and style in the same section of Screen.
Customize the navigation bar
We do not leave the section Screen of the settings. In it you will also come across all the options of the Navigation bar.
Once you have entered the corresponding section, you will be able to turn navigation gestures on or off. You will also be able to change the order of the bar buttons, if you choose this format.
Give a different touch to your Samsung with themes
I have to admit that, personally, I am not a fan of the themes. I have always preferred to leave One UI as it is. Now, if you are looking for greater customization, system themes help you. Where will you find them?
Simply go to settings and press Topics. Then, you will end up in the Galaxy Store (or at least a variant of this store). From there, select the themes, wallpapers and fonts what you want to download. You should know that some elements are paid and others are free. Once downloaded, you can use them to change the look of your device.
Alter the size of app icons
Did you know that you can change icon size from the home screen and app drawer in One UI? The best of all is that it is tremendously easy.
Follow these steps:
- Press on a blank space on the home screen.
- Tap on Settings.
- Press on the button Home Screen Grid.
- Depending on the number of spaces you select in the grid, the icons will become smaller or larger.
You can do the same with the app drawer and folders.
Give your always-on display (AOD) a personal touch
Finally, I talk to you about the always on screen. This is another section of the system that you should pay attention to if you want to have a unique Samsung mobile.
To access AOD settings, do this:
- Open settings.
- Tap on Lock Screen.
- Press on Always on display.
- Go into Clock style.
- Change the look of the watch according to your personal preferences.
If you go back to the previous section, you can also add additional functions to this function, such as the ability to see the music that is playing. It is also possible to determine whether the AOD is activated with a manual touch or permanently by locking the device.
