One UI 5.0 lock screen customization

The Android 13-based One UI 5.0 is a huge upgrade for Samsung Galaxy devices. It brings a handful of new features and the customization capabilities are next-level. You might have noticed that Samsung installed so many customization options for the Lock Screen with the One UI 5.0 upgrade. But are these functions really useful?

I am in no way saying that One UI 5.0 customization options for Galaxy Lock Screen are not good. The company has done a great job in providing users with the lock screen of their choice and the ability to personalize each and every element of that screen and I appreciate that.

Lock Screen customization is one of the biggest changes Samsung brought with its new-gen software. Everyone is getting excited about them. But recently a thought came to my mind about whether users needed such lock screen customization and now that they have come in phones than are they useful?

One UI 5.0 lock screen customization

Well, these are not of any use to me. That’s because I barely use the lock screen for anything. For privacy reasons, I have disabled notifications on my lock screen. Now I only look at my phone’s lock screen when I need to check the time or date and that too when I am not wearing my watch.

In the name of customization, I only change my lock screen wallpaper and clock style and forget to customize them again for months because those things don’t gain my attention. I just take my phone out of my pocket or beg, unlock it through fingerprint lock, and start using it. And I think many others do the same.

In today’s busy lifestyle no one has much time so they can customize their phone’s lock screen on a daily basis. Yes, there are many people who take much interest in all these things and for them, these new features will probably come in handy. But I am sure, at some point, even those people would get bored of them.

On the other hand, Samsung already has a Good lock application for all these, even more, customization options. So I don’t think the One UI 5.0 lock screen customization function is that useful. Well, what do you think about this? Do not forget to share your thoughts with us through social media.

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.

Samsung Galaxy S23 second April 2024 update

In addition to South Korea and Germany, Samsung has now launched the Android 14-based One UI 6 Beta in the US. Users of carrier-unlocked or T-Mobile branded Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, or S23 Ultra smartphones can now sign up to get the Beta firmware via OTA.

It’s worth mentioning that the One UI 6 Beta is only available for T-Mobile and carrier-unlocked Galaxy S23 models in the US. This means Verizon, AT&T, US Cellular, and other carrier users have no other option than waiting for the official rollout.

One UI 6 Beta comes with a redesigned Quick Panel, which looks stunning and well-crafted for accessibility. The animations are also tweaked but require further optimization as the current situation of transition effects is not up to the mark.

In a recent Newsroom article, the South Korean tech giant confirmed that the One UI 6 Beta is equipped with more new customization capabilities. The design is simple and eye-catching, which will surely enhance the everyday operations of Galaxy devices.
