Here’s my Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra One UI 5.0 experience before 5.1



Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

Last year, Samsung released the One UI 5.0 software update for Galaxy Note 20 series and the software comes with a huge list of features and improvements over the past version. Today, I am going to share my Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra user experience with One UI 5.0 before I upgrade to the latest One UI 5.1.

Just to mention, I am not going to go formal here and won’t talk about every feature in the list. Instead, there will be the key major changes in Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra that I’ve noticed after upgrading to One UI 5.0 from One UI 4.1.

Let’s begin.


This is the first and a really major improvement on One UI 5.0 that made my impression great about this upgrade. After installation and about 4 months of exploration, my discovery leads me to the conclusion that “One UI 5.0” has improved the fluency at least twice as the past version.

To begin with, I’ve noticed that the on-screen interactions and system response are quicker than One UI 4.1. Interestingly, the changes in quick response expand further when you switch the motion smoothness and keep it on 120Hz.

The new upgrade enhances the overall rendering time and provides an even smoother performance. Again, it’s not only the fluidity that appears in UI elements, it’s the touch response that you receive once you tap on any button or try to swipe or slide on the screen.

Another example of this finding brings us to the notification panel, which is more efficient in terms of grouping. But, there’s one annoying bug that sometimes triggers an entire application, when you try to expand a notification group.

The task execution part has received an overhaul, and the occasional app lag is now completely gone.

User interface:

This part has a place in my list because the improved dynamic theme is blended better into the UI. However, the themed icon is still missing some miles to measure.

Lock Screen:

The lock screen feature is revamped completely with One UI 5.0. The Korean phone maker has achieved a similar effect to the latest iOS version.

Speaking of effects, the new lock offers a fresh set of options to enhance the overall lock screen. However, the most intriguing part of the new addition is the new font and color customizations.

These two are the key aspect of the new lock screen and Samsung has achieved the perfect result.

Samsung Keyboard:

With One UI 5.0, Samsung Keyboard has achieved new potential with new emojis. I’ve experienced that Samsung Keyboard on my Note 20 Ultra brings a better learning curve for all types of maneuvers that you can pull from your fingers.

So, there you have it, my take on Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with One UI 5.0 before I switch to One UI 5.1. Yes, you could have a different opinion about One UI 5.0 and we encourage you to share them via Twitter.

One UI 6.0 Beta may be available for these Samsung Galaxy devices



Galaxy S22 One UI 5.1 update US

Google is expected to begin Android 14’s Public Beta program at its I/O 2023 event (May 10). Samsung, on the other hand, may start the One UI 6.0 Beta program for Galaxy devices sometime after the official launch of the new operating system.

The Korean tech titan’s recently launched Galaxy S23 lineup would be the first to get the One UI 6.0 Beta update. Later on, Samsung is likely to expand the Beta program to the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 series along with the upcoming and older foldable phones.

The Stable One UI 6.0 update would start rolling out in October 2023, with Samsung may take about three months to gain the stability milestone through its Beta testing. In case the company manages to begin the Beta program by August, we may see the official One UI 6.0 rollout by October.

Last year, the South Korean tech giant started the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 Beta program in early August. With a quite short delay, the company managed to deploy the official One UI 5.0 firmware in late October and rapidly expanded to several models within a month.

We believe Samsung may not make us wait too long for the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 Beta preview. Timeline aside, the Beta program may be available for several Galaxy devices, with some mid-range Galaxy A and M series would be included.

Samsung One UI 6.0 Beta Galaxy Devices:

  • S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra
  • S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra
  • Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4
  • S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra
  • Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3


  • Availability may be limited to select markets.
  • The list is based on the previous rollout and Samsung’s software strategy.
  • Select A and M series phones may also get access to the One UI 6.0 Beta program.
