Samsung One UI 6.1 Hoem Up new features

One UI 6.1 update offers several new features and Galaxy AI for the Galaxy S23 series as well as some unexpected bugs and changes, particularly in the way folder backgrounds are displayed. But the good news is that Samsung will fix the One UI 6.1 folder background issue with the next Home Up update.

Previously, with One UI 6.0, users had the option to adjust the background blur to a near-transparent 1% using the Home Up Good Lock app feature. However, the recent upgrade to One UI 6.1 has resulted in an unexpected opacity of folder backgrounds.

Users have reported that despite attempts to turn the Home Up feature off and on like a reset, the folder background remains unaffected and completely opaque. This is different from the Apps screen, which still responds to adjustments in HomeUp settings.

In response to these concerns, a community moderator has confirmed that a solution is underway with a new update of the Home Up app. The next update of this Good Lock module will resolve the non-responsive background blur control issue for folders. The update is expected to be available soon and will restore the customization options that users have been missing.

Samsung LockStar AOD issue

Samsung Galaxy users have encountered an issue with the LockStar app, where the Always On Display (AOD) preview does not match the actual display after the setting. This difference is particularly noticeable with the size of the notification icon. It has become a source of discomfort for users who have updated both LockStar and AOD to their latest versions.

A Reddit user reported that despite installing the latest updates and customizing the AOD as per LockStar’s preview, the result on the screen was different with a notably smaller notification icon.
