Samsung One UI 5.0 Color Palette

One UI 4.1 Color Palette:

As soon as you apply a new wallpaper, you will get four different color combinations along with the system’s default theme. Each palette has 6 shades that apply to different parts of your device.

You can also apply this color palette theme to app icons if you desired to do so. However, it is only applicable to select Samsung and Google apps whereas, third-party apps will remain the same. Apart from these, all system applications get some sort of colors but it did not apply throughout.

One UI 5.0 Color Palette:

The worst thing about the One UI 4.1 color palette was that it didn’t apply to third-party app icons. One UI 5.0 has fixed it. The new software brings Dynamic Theming to more Samsung, Google, and other third-party applications so that when you apply the color palette to app icons, all applications will look similar.

Next, the company has also increased the Color Palette options from 4 to 16 so the customers can get more choices while choosing a perfect theme for their phone that syncs with the Lock screen or Home screen wallpaper. It now has two menus:

  • Wallpaper colors: This option will show you 12 color palettes and each carries 6 different shades for a different element of your device.
  • Basic colors: Inside, you will see 4 dual-color combinations along with 8 single colors that will best match your phone’s wallpaper.

If that’s not enough, Samsung also offers the ability to completely disable the Color Palette, in case you don’t like any of the themes.

One UI 5.0 vs One UI 4.1 – Samsung Color Palette:

The difference between Samsung’s One UI 4.1 Color Palette and One UI 5.0 Color Palette can be seen clearly. The new software offers more choices for the user interface theme as well as it now more effectively applies throughout the system and supports more apps like WhatsApp, Reddit, Signal, Linkedin, etc.

Notification Panel

Notification Panel! This is the most used feature of the smartphone, whenever we open our smartphone, we open this panel first with the swipe-down gesture on the home screen.

Transparency 

If we compare with One UI 4.1, the layout and design of the notification panel of One UI 5 are the same. Starting with the digital clock, the positions of the top icon, date, settings gear icon, and primary quick setting toggles have not changed. Also, the design of the brightness slider remains the same.

However, the One UI 5.0 Notification panel is now less transparent than the previous design to display information more clearly.

App icons in the notifications

To further highlight the app icon in notifications, a circular background has been added behind the icon with One UI 5.0. In One 4.1, the app’s icon appeared along with the notification.

Notification Settings and Clear button

In addition to the app icon in the notification, notification settings, and clear button options have also been enhanced with One UI 5.0 as a black-colored transparent pill shape background has also been added behind them so that now these buttons look more clear.

With One UI 4.1, both options are available but there is no background behind them.
