  • The shortcuts will now be available in the top bar, tapping them will open the app.

Make the shutter button easier to reach:

Smartphones now come with very big screens, take Galaxy S22 Ultra as an example. This makes it a bit difficult to click photos, especially selfies, on a large screen phone. Samsung allows you to move the Shutter button anywhere on the screen so you can reach it with either hand. You can hide it when you don’t need it.

To do this: Tap the camera shutter button and move it anywhere on the screen.

Clone apps with Secure folder:

Samsung Secure Folder is an aged One UI feature that keeps your private photos, videos, files, apps, and data safe and secure. You can even use it to have multiple instances of the same app on your phone. Any apps you put inside it are duplicates that don’t share anything with apps outside of the folder.

To do this:

  • Tap the plus (+) button in the folder.
  • Select the apps you want to clone.
  • Finally, hit Add.

Flip the phone to silent calls:

Samsung Galaxy users can quickly mute unwanted alarms and calls just by turning their devices over. But the even better thing? It doesn’t hang up the call. So you can coolly cut the noise and ignore it, or take the conversation outside. Here’s how to activate it:

  • Go to your phone’s Settings.
  • Scroll down to enter Advanced features.
  • Tap Motions and gestures.
  • You will see the Mute with gestures option. Enable the toggle on.

Better customization

First of all, the One UI 4.1 Galaxy Experience Film begins with introducing the improved customization capabilities and usability across Samsung devices.

Accordingly, the One UI 4.1 embeds enhancements to the native Camera app with a new feature – “Tap, Hold & Swipe” to lock video recording.

Pro Mode, optimized Camera with social platforms

One UI 4.1 extends the Pro Mode support on each Camera lens available on the Galaxy smartphone along with further improving the features and making them easier to use. Moreover, the phone’s photography features now work with in-app Cameras of Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok.

Gallery access via One Drive

Aside from this, the One UI 4.1 lets Galaxy owners access the Gallery’s images and videos across devices, thanks to Samsung-Microsoft collaboration on One Drive.

Useful Samsung One UI 4.1 Display features

Turn off Adaptive brightness:

If you notice that your phone’s screen turns black and then flashes, it’s due to the adaptive brightness feature, which changes the screen brightness based on the amount of light detected. This feature is designed to help save battery power, but you can turn it off if it bothers you.

To deactivate it, navigate to Settings >> Display >> tap the toggle next to Adaptive brightness. You can adjust your phone’s brightness manually.

Turn off Adaptive brightness

Check Proximity sensor:

The proximity sensor is located on the top of your phone and detects motion. It activates during a call and will turn off the phone’s screen when the phone is close to your face, so you won’t accidentally touch options while talking.

If your phone keeps turning off randomly then check to make sure that the proximity sensor is not blocked by a case or screen cover.
