Lock screen:

With the Galaxy S22 series’ third One UI 5.0 Beta, Samsung debuted a customizable lockscreen that can be tweaked directly from the lockscreen interface.

Home and apps screen:

While there are major enhancements in the customization capabilities of the lockscreen, there’s nothing notable in the One UI 5.0 for the Home screen part. The company has reimagined the icons of several stock apps along with gradient colors.

Note: You can add the Unlock and 60Hz profile through Bixby Routines, as shown in the screenshot.

Apps screen, on the other hand, remains the same as the One UI 4.1 with paginated form factor, which users demand vertical scroll app drawer with One UI 5.0. The App drawer has not added new features or functionalities, however, you can now find apps even more easily with suggestions as per your usage.

Notification panel and Quick settings:

Compared to the One UI 4.1, the new One UI 5.0 software brings significant improvements to the Notification panel interface in order to increase visibility. The Notification expansion buttons got less transparent background shapes to provide you with a clear view at all toggles, however, the layout remains the same.

Talking about the Quick Settings, there are not any upgrades over the One UI 4.1 in the overall feel. The background now looks less transparent, thanks to the company’s decision to replace the previous interface with a solid color in both light and dark modes.

Volume slider interface:

Volume adjustment panel is one of the most used functions of smartphones that allows you to adjust volume of different aspects such as ringtone, media, alarms, timers and so on. The One UI 5.0’s volume panel adopts better Material You design language and revamps itself as the wallpaper’s color and Color Palette.
