Download Android 13 Custom ROM for Samsung devices [February 2023]



Samsung One UI 5 favorite thing

On August 15, 2022, Google officially launched the Android 13 operating system. Samsung, on the other hand, has greatly deployed the major OS upgrade to eligible Galaxy devices as One UI 5.0 and One UI 5.1. Since several Samsung devices are no longer eligible for Android 13, Custom ROM gives you what you want.

The new Android 13 introduces a powerful Dynamic Theming functionality, providing you with more options for customization, thanks to extended Color Palettes. In addition, there are also significant improvements in the usability of functions as part of delivering better user experiences.

One UI 5.0/ One UI 5.1 is also based on the Android 13 OS. It officially brings the latest OS to Galaxy devices, however, Custom ROMs usually offer features from stock Android. As your Galaxy phone already lost the eligibility to get Android 13, using custom ROM, you can experience the brand new features.

Talking about visual changes, icon symbols are larger for a bolder look that’s easier to scan. Subtle background gradients and improved contrast give a fresher, more natural feel. New help illustrations have been created to give a consistent look to all apps.

One UI 5 is the smoothest Android skin in Samsung’s history, which was further refined with One UI 5.1. New animations and transition effects make switching between screens feel more natural. Besides, the scrolling speed has been enhanced to make scrolling feel smoother throughout One UI.

For personalization, the One UI 5 brings great new tools so you can get tasks done in just a few taps. Just touch and hold the Lock screen to edit. Customize your wallpaper, clock style, notification settings, and more, with live preview, all in one place alongside a new wallpaper section!
