One UI 5.1 Color Palette

Millions of Galaxy smartphone users have grabbed the One UI 5.1 update Samsung started dispatching yesterday. Besides the changelog, there are multiple changes that users have noticed on their phones after installing One UI 5.1 and they can be found in the Color Palette feature as well.

Based on Google’s Material You, Samsung offers the Color Palette feature for Galaxy devices that lets the customers revamp the look of their phone by applying different themes that match their lock screen or home screen.

In the beginning, Samsung used to provide only four color palettes to the customers that are based on their wallpaper. But the One UI 5.0 software significantly improved it with the integration of 16 Color Palettes and Basic Color options.

Theming the system UI through color palettes was easy until One UI 5.0 as it not only provided matched palettes but also automatically shows the palette when a new wallpaper was applied to the phone’s lock or home screen. But things have changed with the new One UI 5.1 software as it has made Color Palette theming a bit hectic.

According to multiple users’ reports and SammyFans’ personal experiences, the One UI 5.1 has broke the Color Palette feature. When you apply a new wallpaper to your phone, it does not show the matched Color Palette options.

In One UI 5.1, you will have to go to the Wallpaper and Style section and select the best Palette to theme your phone, and then apply it. It requires additional efforts from the customers as earlier they used to get the matches color palettes without doing anything.

Is it a bug?

When I saw the reports of users in the community, I thought that some Galaxy S22 phones have this bug. Then I checked in my S22 Ultra and I experienced the same. Later to confirm if this is limited to the S22 or other phones as well, I checked in the Galaxy Z Fold 3, and surprisingly, the same thing happened.

At present, I don’t know if this is a bug or if Samsung has knowingly changed the settings. But users are not liking it at all. Hopefully, Samsung will fix this in the upcoming updates.

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 February 2024 update Australia

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.

But that’s not all as the Weather app has also changed, now providing a lot of additional information. Users can now get details about snowfall, moon phases and timings, atmospheric pressure, visibility distance, dew point, and wind direction directly within the app.

The inclusion of an interactive map view takes weather tracking to a whole new level. Users can easily navigate around the map, swipe to explore different areas, and tap on locations to instantly access local weather conditions.

The illustration in the weather widget and the pictures in the app present an attractive representation of the current weather conditions. The background colors dynamically change to suit different times of the day to deliver a better weather experience.
