Next, you can add any text on the lock screen, it could be your name, phone number, Email ID, or a thought you like. Furthermore, you can allow wallet access on the lock screen, so whenever you need to make a quick payment you can do so without unlocking your phone.

In addition to these, you can allow control for external devices from the lock screen, enable now playing content to show on the lock screen as well as turn on the ability to identify songs playing nearby.

There’s also a double-line clock feature, a Tap to check the phone, a Lift to check the phone, a Wake screen for notifications, and other features. Aside from these, if you want to change your phone’s lock or manage other lock screen settings, you will need to go to different sections.

One UI 5.0 Lock Screen:

Samsung One UI 5.0 offers all the lock screen-related settings in one place. You will not only see different lock screen security functions here but also the ability to manage Smart Lock and Secure lock screen settings.

Next, you have the ability to manage the lock screen with different wallpapers, filters, clocks styles, app shortcuts, stickers, and text, as well as lock screen widgets from this section. In addition, One UI 5.0 also brings the ability to edit the lock screen from the lock screen itself.

In addition to these, you can also personalize the Always On Display settings with different clock styles, screen orientation, and others from this section. Additionally, you can also manage the Roaming clock.

Last but not least, the One UI 5.0 Lock Screen section offers the ability to manage Notification as well. You can choose whether you want to show notification content on the screen or not, show silent or alert notifications, and more.

Android 13 vs One UI 5.0 – Lock Screen:

It’s hard to choose one as both Android 13 and One UI 5.0 has great lock screen features. Many features are the same, however, there are some Galaxy features that are not in Pixel phones and there are some Pixel features that are not available in Galaxy phones.

If you are already using a Samsung phone and are used to using lock screen app shortcuts, then you might find a bit inconvenience using Pixel phones as they are not available there. Instead, you will get some great features to manage more functions from the lock screen itself.

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!
