But arguably the most important new change that One UI 5.0 brings is major performance optimizations. Below you can check out the most highlighted parts of One UI 5 software on the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE smartphone.

New features:

Extract text from image:

What could be more convenient than copying text directly from an image, screenshot, or banner and pasting it into messages or notes? Yes, with One UI 5.0, Samsung has brought users the ability to extract text from images. All you need to do is open the image that contains text and tap the yellow “T” icon.

Per-app language:

With Android 13, Google introduced a new feature that allows you to select a different language for each app without changing the system language. Samsung brings the same feature to One UI 5 software and is located in Settings >> General management. When you tap on “App languages“, it will list all the supported apps.

Camera Watermark:

One UI 5.0 comes with a new Camera Watermark feature that you can directly find under “Camera Settings.” This feature is so good as the company has made it a bit customizable.

It allows users to enable and add Custom or Date and time watermarks. You can edit the Custom option with different texts such as your name, your phone’s name, or anything you want.

Help guide in Camera Pro mode:

If you’re a casual photographer, Samsung Camera’s Pro mode brings useful tips for you through the new Help guide function. When you open the Pro camera mode, you will see an “i” icon. Tap on it and your phone’s camera will guide you on how to capture perfect shots.

It will show you some helpful tips for basic photography elements like ISO, shutter speed, white balance, focus, and more.

Security and Privacy:

The One UI 5.0 is making it easier than ever for you to keep your device protected and your sensitive information private. With one quick glance, you can get a quick overview of your device’s security and find suggestions and warnings depending on the status. Just head over to Settings >> Security and Privacy.

Better multitasking:

Multitasking is very common in smartphones nowadays. Therefore, to meet users’ demands and improve productivity, Samsung One UI 5.0 has brought two new Multitasking gestures – Swipe for Split screen and Swipe for Pop-up. You can find them under Settings >> Advanced features >> Labs.

Connected devices:

“Connected devices” is a completely new menu under System Settings. With this, you can manage all your phone’s external connections right from one place, providing you with more convenience for controlling your smart TV, PC, wearable, or smartphone.


Color palette:

Samsung has expanded the Dynamic Theme Color Palette options from 4 to 16 with the One UI 5.0 update so that you can get more choices while choosing a perfect theme for your phone that syncs with the Lock screen or Home screen wallpaper.

In addition, One UI 5.0 is bringing 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.

Lock screen:

The One UI 5.0 Lock screen customization options are next level. You can now disable any of the components of the lock screen, such as the Clock, Notification icons, and App shortcuts, by tapping the “-” icon. Meanwhile, to edit that part, tap on it.

Samsung also offers a “Contact Information” option to let you add a phone number or email address so that people can contact you if you lose your phone.

Stack Widgets:

Samsung is making things simpler in One UI 5.0 by removing the “Smart Widgets” concept. Now you don’t need to follow the unnecessarily complicated process of making a stack.

Instead of going through the Widget menu to add a smart widget, you can simply drag and drop a widget onto another widget, and it will turn into a stacked widget. This also means that your widgets are not limited to a single size.

Performance optimizations:

Undoubtedly, the new iteration of Samsung’s software is faster and smoother than the One UI 4. Animations, transitions, and simply scrolling down long lists deliver a more satisfying experience which is certainly welcomed.

During the One UI 4 software rollout, many users were asking about new and smoother animations. The company has finally brought it for you, the animations are really smooth, while in some places there are new animations as well.

Additionally, the RAM Plus feature, which was taking your phone’s internal storage to increase RAM, now gets the ability to be disabled so that you can get more free space on your device and get a lag-free performance.

There could be many professions but writing about tech is something that I've chosen and it's what I've been doing. Besides this, I like sketching, roaming, and shopping. I am a casual person and like to taste different dishes and Chinese is my favourite.
