Samsung AOD 8.0, powered by One UI 5.0

Samsung Always On Display AOD

AOD, also known as Always On Display is one of the most amazing features of Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Each new One UI iteration brings improvements and new functionalities to the AOD feature, while, the new One UI 5.0 Beta seems to have nothing new for Samsung devices. Let’s have a quick look:

Before exploring the Always On Display feature, it’s important to mention that the development of One UI 5.0 is still underway and Samsung might add new functionalities and further improvements with future Beta builds or Stable ones.

One UI 5.0 didn’t change the way of accessing the AOD feature on Galaxy smartphones. You can head towards system Settings, followed by Lock screen and Always On Display, to access the feature and customization options of the AOD.

Similar to the previous iteration, the One UI 5.0 (Beta) has a toggle on the top for enabling and disabling. Besides this, there’s a text note about the Always On Display functionality that reads “Show a clock and notifications when your phone isn’t in use.”

Like the One UI 4.1, there are four options, letting you decide when the Always On Display appear; Tap to show, Show always, Show as scheduled, or Show for new notifications. I prefer using Tap to show or Show for new notifications.

After that, there is a dedicated section for Clock style that allows you to customize the Clock’s design and colors that will appear when your phone isn’t in use. There are a total of 9 clock styles available by the One UI software, however, you can create different kinds of clock styles using the Good Lock’s ClockFace module.

In addition to Clock styles provided by Samsung, you can also use Stickers, AR Emoji, Bitmoji, and custom images from Gallery or Themes available on the Galaxy Themes app. By default, the AOD will use a clock style showing the time and date alongside the Day by occupying very less space, and you also have the option to change the color.

Talking about additional settings, AOD provides you with more options like Show music information, setting the orientation of the screen, setting for Auto brightness, and custom brightness. Later on, there is a section to get information about the App version of AOD and suggestions for settings.

Samsung One UI 5.0 RAM Plus Feature

With the Galaxy A52s smartphone, Samsung debuted the virtual RAM feature called RAM Plus, which was rolled out to more Galaxy devices with firmware updates. Later on, Samsung introduced the customizable RAM Plus with up to 8GB of virtual RAM choice with the One UI 4.1.

When activated, the RAM Plus feature occupies a specific part of the phone’s internal memory in order to boost the apps’ performance on Galaxy devices. However, all Galaxy fans don’t find RAM Plus feature useful, so Samsung has now added an option to disable the virtual RAM.
