1. Galaxy S20 Wi-Fi doesn’t work properly – Issue

Some users have complained that their S20 Ultra has problems connecting to Wi-Fi, often failing to download web pages and content even though the phone indicates it is connected to a Wi-Fi network. Updates to Android 11 seem to be causing this problem, and some users have noticed it with other phones in the S20 series.

Solution

One fix proposed in the Samsung Community forum is to go to Settings > Location > Google Location Accuracy Off. Taking this route can solve most occurrences of this issue, although your best bet is to check for a new software update and download/install it.

2. Always-on display constantly waking device – Issue

The Samsung Galaxy S20 features a screen that will automatically wake up when raised. If you find that your device wakes up in the wrong place, such as in your wallet or backpack, you may want to disable this feature.

Published

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3

With the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Samsung has made a major change in Cover Display, and it could be the biggest change in the device. Now it’s great and bigger in size.

Samsung says it is four times bigger than the previous Galaxy Z Flip, but specs do not indicate that. It moves from a 1.1-inch oval screen to a 1.9-inch screen from the top of the phone.

Now that Cover Display is so big, it is also very useful. You can see the notifications and actually read them. In fact, you can read two notices at a time, and scroll through them. But Samsung also added a way to add widgets to Cover Display. Allows you to swipe over to see things like the weather, your current music/podcasts, and a few other things.

One UI 4.0 Tip: Color Themes (Material You) with different color schemes

Published

on

With the One UI 4 Beta 2, Samsung has added various tweaks to the user interface and functionality. And, the new version brings some new features and performance improvements too. One of the most important changes is the ability to dynamically apply your theme using the colors drawn in the current wallpaper.

This feature is one of the bases of Google’s Material You redesign on Android 12 on Pixel devices. The Samsung One UI 4.0 beta 2 dynamic theme engine doesn’t seem to behave as well as Google’s Monet on Pixel, but it brings an extra layer of custom to the UI one users have been asking for.

Samsung One UI 4.0 Colour Themes Feature 

The most notable change to the One UI beta 2 is the new color Themes options. This feature is enabled by long pressing on the home screen and navigating to the ‘Wallpaper’ menu. It is important to note that enabling this feature provides you with different color schemes to choose from. Each of these palettes is drawn to your current wallpaper.

How to choose Colour Themes on Galaxy S21 series

  • Enabled by long pressing on the Home Screen.
  • Navigating to the Wallpaper menu.
  • Enabling features with different color schemes to choose from.
  • Color designs are drawn to your current wallpaper.

Samsung’s theming feature is not as compelling as Google. While quick setting tiles have a theme and text accents in settings, you have no theme thumbnails. Color shading is also very different.

It’s easy to see that Google uses a wide variety of colors to put themes in both quick settings and other tones throughout their app. Samsung’s color theme feature seems to include a few colors into the whole theme, with very little variation in tint or gradients.
