However, in this article, we’ll be talking about different ways to customize the colors and themes of the Samsung One UI 4.1 Keyboard. In case you need some tips on how to customize the whole Samsung Keyboard, head here.

Change Samsung keyboard colors

  • Using Dark Mode

The dark mode is the simplest way to change your Samsung phone’s default keyboard colors. When you turn on dark mode, the black theme automatically applies to different areas of your phone including the quick settings panel, settings page, phones, messages, and come other applications, and so is the case with Samsung Keyboard.

Enabling dark mode is easy and simple, you can do it in a few steps.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap Display.
  3. Tap Dark mode.

Alternatively, you can perform the same through the Quick panel by just tapping the button.

  • Using Samsung Keyboard themes

The built-in Samsung Keybaord provides four different themes that you can use to change the color of your keyboard. These themes include – Light, Solid light, Dark, and Solid dark.

Well, we prefer you not to use Solid colors as they hide the keys’ border and don’t look so good. Anyway, to change colors using Samsung’s built-in keyboard:

  1. Open Settings on your Samsung phone.
  2. Go to General Management.
  3. Tap Samsung keyboard settings.
  4. Tap Themes.
  5. Choose one between four themes.

Instead, you can tap the Settings icon >> Themes while using the Samsung Keyboard.

  • Using High Contrast Color

If you don’t like these simple light and dark colors, you can also choose high-contrast colors for your keyboard. To do this:

  1. Open Samsung keyboard settings.
  2. Tap on High contrast keyboard.
  3. Enable the toggle to turn on the feature.
  4. Choose the required high-contrast color theme from the available options.

  • Using Galaxy Themes

You can also change your keyboard’s color by applying a theme on your phone. Your Samsung phone supports themes natively, so you don’t have to rely on any third-party app.

It should be noted that the applied theme will change the colors of your entire phone and not just the keyboard. If you are ok with it, you can try out this method. Here’s how:

  1. From a Home screentap and hold an empty area.
  2. Tap Themes.
  3. To view all your themes, tap Menu (the three horizontal lines).
  4. Tap My stuff.
  5. Click Themes.
  6. Select your desired theme, view the details, and then tap Apply.
  7. If needed, tap Apply one more time to confirm.

If you don’t have any theme download, you can download as well as purchase new themes from the Galaxy Themes app.

Change theme

  • Using One UI 4.1 Color Palette

One UI 4 introduced Dynamic theming for Galaxy devices. When enabled, it picks up the dominant color palette from user-applied wallpapers and applies them as accent colors on the Galaxy phone’s user interface.

To use it:

  1. Open Settings on your phone.
  2. Go to Wallpaper and style.
  3. Tap on Color palette.
  4. Enable the toggle next to Apply palette to app icons.
  5. Choose a color scheme from the options available under the Color palette section above the toggle.
  6. If you don’t like the available colors, you can change the wallpaper to see a different set of colors.

Published

on

A built-in Samsung feature called Storage Booster assists in freeing up device memory if the storage on your Galaxy device is getting low. Let’s examine its usage.

Download Sammy Fans App

How to use:

Storage Booster is very simple to use. Take the following actions:

  • Go to Battery and device care in Settings.
  • Select Storage booster from the three-dot menu.
  • Now hit FREE UP.
  • Three things will be accomplished by doing this:
    • Deleting duplicate pictures
    • Zipping up infrequently used apps
    • Deleting saved APK files.
  • You can go inside a category and choose specific items to delete or zip, or you can deselect the category you don’t want to be affected by.

To free up space on your internal storage, you may also use Storage Booster to transfer some of your apps to the SD card. Select the apps you wish to move by tapping Move apps to the SD card. You might get a disclaimer after doing so, hit Confirm to proceed.

It should be noted that Samsung phones without SD card slots lack this feature. Even if your phone has one, transferring apps to an SD card may occasionally result in data loss. So do not forget to make a backup of everything vital that is currently saved in the program you’re migrating before continuing.

Check the game to see whether you can connect your Google or Facebook account to save your progress if you’re relocating it. There are entirely too many accounts of people having to restart their whole game after losing all of their progress.

Finally, you may schedule the deletion of cache files, empty folders, and cached ad data in your phone using Storage Booster. Activate Auto erase unwanted data and select Daily at noon, Weekly, Every 15 days, or Monthly from the same menu to specify how often you want this done. Additionally, you can be informed when the deletion occurs.

One UI 5.0 Bedtime mode

On One UI 4.1, the bedtime mode feature was available in the Digital Wellbeing and Parental Control but the Galaxy S22 Ultra had this feature in the Clock app. Now the company has again shifted this feature and moved it to Bixby Routines.

However, it cannot be confirmed whether this change has been made for all One UI 5.0 Galaxy devices or for flagship phones, or only for the Galaxy S22 series. We’ll have to wait for this beta update to arrive on other Galaxy phones.

This feature only changes its location but not the function that it usually provides. The Bedtime mode on One UI 5.0 beta offers the same functionalities as it used to provide with the Clock app, even more.

One UI 5.0 Bedtime mode

According to Samsung, the One UI 5.0 Bedtime on Bixby Routines lets you automate more actions when it’s time for bed. You can turn on Do not disturb or change other settings on your phone with ease.

You can turn this feature on by entering Bixby Routines. Here’s how to set your bedtime and wake-up time.

How to set bedtime and wake-up time:

  • Once you turn this feature on, tap Next and Set your sleep schedule.
  • Again, tap Next, and turn on Bedtime mode.
  • Set a wake-up alarm and Done.
  • You’ll get the option to change the Reminder notification setting and a toggle to turn on Bedtime mode.
  • If you choose to turn it on, your phone will automatically turn on DND mode and change the screen to grayscale when it’s close to bedtime.
  • You can then tap on the Next button again to Set the wake-up alarm.
  • If you use Samsung SmartThings, you’ll also be able to integrate your alarm with supported smart devices.
  • Once you’re done with the initial setup process, you’ll see a new alarm at the top of the Alarm section.
    • You can tap on it to adjust your bedtime, alarm, and notification settings further.
  • If you use Samsung’s S Health app, you’ll also see a Sleep details button underneath the new alarm that will open S Health’s sleep tracker.
