One UI 5.0 Security and Privacy:

As it does every time, Samsung has majorly focused on enhancing its Galaxy devices’ security and their users’ privacy with the latest One UI 5.0 software. One UI 5.0’s newly added Security and Privacy Dashboard feature make data safety even easier to manage. Users can now decide who can see their data and how they will use it.

The new software further offers Galaxy customers instant access to data and safety. The new privacy hub has options like Lock Screen, Accounts, App Safety, and more so users can instantly access and get informed through different alerts and indicators.

On the other hand, if you are an avid shopper, One UI 5.0 will allow you not to be inundated by targeted advertisements with the “Delete AD ID” feature. Moreover, the previous mic and camera access indicators are also getting improvements, you can now revoke them from certain apps and ensure that your face and voice are secured.

Most importantly, the new Security and Privacy Dashboard in Settings further allows Galaxy device users to see what apps have tracked their location in the past 24 hours. The interface lets users choose to share locations with different security options.

Other than these, Samsung has added the Lockdown mode feature to the Galaxy devices with One UI 5.0 software. It restricts others from unlocking your phone when you are sleeping or insensible by disabling face unlock and fingerprint unlock.

Last but not least, the One UI 5.0 software also brings a solution for the problem that certain apps keep tracking your location and data continuously even if you have not used it for a long.

iOS 16 Security and Privacy:

For security purposes, Apple has also added so many tools to the iPhones through its latest iOS 16  software. The iPhone’s Settings app now has a new “Security Checkup” feature, which is designed to make it easier for people to quickly reset all the data and location access they’ve provided to other people.

Its Emergency Reset feature immediately stops sharing everything with all people and apps while the Manage Sharing lets you see an overview of what you’re sharing so you can’t be secretly tracked using location sharing, shared albums, or others.

Next, it contains the hidden and recently deleted albums in the Phone app. These albums cannot be opened without biometric authentication via Face ID, Touch ID, or passcode. On the other hand, the Landscape Face ID allows the iPhone to be unlocked whether it is in portrait or landscape orientation.

Apple iOS 16 further adds the Rapid Security Response function which lets the company send security updates without updating the entire operating system. Whereas, with the new Pasteboard Permissions features, your apps will require explicit user permission before accessing the clipboard to copy and paste content.

With iOS 16, Apple is adding Passkey which is designed to replace the traditional password when signing in to a website or app. Lastly, the latest Apple software comes with Lockdown Mode, which has an extreme level of security for activists, journalists, and others targeted by sophisticated cyber attacks.

One UI 5.0 vs iOS 16 – Security and Privacy:

Being a Samsung fan, I didn’t want to say this, but the truth is that One UI 5.0 lags behind Apple iOS 16 when it comes to the security and privacy of the device and its users.

iOS 16 has so many advanced security-related features that I feel Samsung should implement in its software. On the other hand, Samsung One UI 5.0 features are praiseworthy as well.

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.

Battery Widget: One UI 5.1 Vs Android 13

Showcased at the SDC 2023, Samsung’s Battery Widget arrive on Galaxy devices with the One UI 5.1 update in February. Galaxy users after upgrading their phone to the One UI 5.1 version can use the feature to get updated with info about how much juice is left in their devices.

One UI 5.1’s battery status widget introduces two different styles including a “Circles” 4×1 and a “List” 4×2. You can expand the area by two times vertically, while it’s not possible to reduce the occupation area, which is the worst thing I noticed.

On the other hand, the Android 13 battery widget has just a single choice but it’s way too advance, as compared to the One UI 5.1. The widget takes size as per the number of devices paired with the smartphone, if you don’t have any, it will remain single-linear.

One UI vs Android

Not that all, the widget is interactive as the system Settings’ battery tab gets opened as soon as you tap the widget. Similar to One UI 5.1, the Android 13’s widget adapts to system settings whether it’s in Light mode or Dark mode for a well-optimized home screen appearance.

Earlier, we compared the Battery widget of One UI 5.1 and Apple iOS 16, which was a tough fight between both. However, the One UI requires work on optimization and usability improvements are necessary to make it better than rivals including Android and iOS.

Since One UI 5.1’s battery widget is just the initial version, we believe Samsung will work on it and make notable improvements. The One UI 6.0 will be the next major version for Galaxy devices, likely to release later this year, you can check our features wishlist below.

Samsung Galaxy Exynos Wi-fi Calling

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is a camera beast and brings a massive upgrade in features as compared to S22 Ultra but the design of this successor needs to be explored. In that case, we’ll have to do a comparison.

For your information, this comparison will look into the structure, layout, shape, lens count, and some key specifications of the rear camera module.


First comes the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which features a quad camera including a laser autofocus sensor and an LED flash. This system has two columns, the left side starts with a 12MP ultra wide-angle camera, followed by a 108MP wide-angle/main camera and the third one is a 10MP 10x periscope zoom camera.

The second column consists of a laser autofocus, an LED flash, and a secondary telephoto camera, capable of 3x zoom. Actually, the S22 Ultra resembles the S21 Ultra but without that large camera bump.

If you look closely at the S23 Ultra, the difference between the camera structure and the aesthetics is barely noticeable. Because the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra willfully carries the camera design and layout from the S22 Ultra. Specifically, the first and second columns are identical in both devices. This is causing a variation in opinion among consumers who were expecting a major makeover.

Speaking of major, this flagship stands as a 200MP camera powerhouse. Using a super-resolution sensor, Samsung promises high-quality photography and robust optical image stabilization in videos.

Elegant Tweaks:

Aside from the layout and lens, Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra brings a brand-new silver outsole ring. This tweak makes the entire module big, bulky, and elegant as compared to the past version.

In terms of appearance, this premium device strikes full marks for those new optimizations and it will definitely catch your eyes on the first look.

Battery Widget – Samsung One UI 5.1 Vs Apple iOS 16



Battery Widget One UI Vs iOS

Samsung introduced a new battery status widget feature with the new One UI 5.1 software. Sadly, it’s not a new innovation as Apple’s iOS and Pixel’s Android already have such kind of widgets. Well, here we compare the battery widget of Samsung’s One UI 5.1 and Apple’s iOS 16 operating system.

Apple Battery Widget

Since Apple has already brought the battery status widget to iPhones, it has mastered the feature with generation improvements. In the latest iOS 16, there are three different battery widgets available on iPhones including a square (single), a rectangular (list), and a circular (4).

Samsung Battery Widget

Samsung’s battery widget introduces two choices for Galaxy consumers including the circular and square box styles. Both of the choices let you display the battery status of up to 8 devices including the smartphone itself. By default, the widget expands for 4 devices, which can be further enlarged for eight.

Battery Widget One UI Vs iOS


One UI 5.1’s circular battery widget doesn’t have any background layer as all circles are arranged independently. On the flip side, iOS 16’s circular widget has a transparent layer so it can be clearly visible in any kind of wallpaper or home screen theme.

The One UI 5.1’s circular widget shows the device icon and percentage inside the circle, whereas the iOS takes additional space beside for percentage.

Talking about the second style, the rectangular widget of One UI 5.1 looks way better than the iOS 16’s. It has a solid background layer with an intuitive interface as well as a header, device icon, battery percentage bar, and text.

On the other hand, iOS 16’s rectangular battery widget keeps the same transparent background layer and occupies much space on the home screen. One UI can show the status of up to 8 devices, while iOS is limited to just 4.


  • Tied!

Apple’s battery status widget is unquestionably mature, compared to the first version of Samsung’s battery widget. Still, Samsung did a pretty good job when it comes to personalization of the widget and usability with a high amount of devices.

The circular widget of Apple looks better than the One UI, while the rectangular-styled widget of One UI clearly defeats iOS. It’s pretty difficult to make a winner in this comparison, as both have their own specialties and limitations. Well, which one do you prefer? Let us know through social media!
