Neha Roy


 A growing number of consumers are switching from their outdated cellphones to Samsung's cutting-edge models as a result of the company's most recent models' outstanding new capabilities. There are always options to modify settings if they don't feel quite right on your brand-new Samsung phone.

There are numerous customization options available for Samsung (and Android phones in general) that can help you make your phone completely unique. Here's how to modify virtually every aspect of your Samsung phone.

1. Update your wall covering and colour scheme

The simplest approach to personalise and make your phone feel brand-new once more is to change the wallpaper. You don't have to use Samsung's default colour scheme and generic wallpapers.

To locate a good wallpaper from your personal photos, go to Settings > Wallpaper and styles and select Gallery. It may be used on your lock screen, home screen, or both. Additionally, you have the option of making a video wallpaper your lock screen.

Your phone will prompt you to choose a specific colour scheme once you change your background. Pick the one you believe best complements the wallpaper. Keep in mind that the colour scheme you select will be used across your phone.

2. Modify the Theme

Install a theme instead of going through the bother of attempting to find a matching wallpaper and lock screen. Themes alter your wallpaper, lock screen, and in certain cases, even your icons.

Either open the Galaxy Themes app or navigate to Settings > Themes to access themes. Verify that Themes is chosen in the bottom menu bar. You may browse through a wide selection of both free and premium themes here to enhance the aesthetics of your Samsung phone.

3. Redesign your iconography

You may also alter the way your icons look with Samsung devices. If you don't like the way your theme's included icons or the way the default Samsung icons look, open the Galaxy Themes app and select Icons from the bottom menu bar.

Here, you'll discover a variety of amusing items that can be used to make your icons look cute or more contemporary. Remember that not all of your icons will change if you install one of these icon themes. Only the stock Samsung apps that come with your phone are impacted.

4. Setup an alternative keyboard

If you don't like the default keyboard on Samsung devices, you can change to the Gboard software, which is pre-installed on all Android devices, or select an alternative keyboard like SwiftKey. It all boils down to personal preference when it comes to the keyboard you use.

You can find a tonne of keyboard apps on the Play Store with just a fast search. Choose a keyboard app, install it, and launch it. Most keyboard programmes let you quickly change your default selection.

Install SwiftKey (Free, in-app purchases available)

5. Customize the Notifications on Your Lock Screen

By navigating to Settings > Lock screen > Notifications, you can modify your lock screen notifications. To alter how notifications are displayed to you, select Icons only or Details below. Turn on the "Hide content" option if you want even more privacy.

The Transparency slider can also be changed to suit your preferences. In this method, the bubble in which the content of your alerts appears will fade and won't significantly detract from the appearance of your wallpaper.

On occasion, the font colour of the notification is either too light or too dark to be clearly visible on your lock screen. Set Auto-reverse text colour if that applies. With the help of this useful tool, you may change the text's colour to match your wallpaper.

6. Personalized Always-On Display

When you aren't using your phone, Always On Display (AOD) displays the time, date, battery life, and notification icons against a black background. A monthly calendar, music information, a fingerprint scanner, and charging information are further options. Go to Settings > Lock screen > Always On Display to accomplish this.

Toggle the functionality on and then choose whether you want to display the AOD screen when you receive new alerts, always, on tap, or as scheduled. Next, select Clock style to alter the AOD screen's style and colour. To view the song and artist now playing, toggle on Show music details.

Go to Settings > Biometrics and security > Fingerprints and turn on Show icon when screen is off to see the fingerprint scanner icon on your AOD screen. Go to Settings > Display and turn on Show charging information to display charging information on your AOD screen.

7. Hiding or Displaying Item Status Bar

All of your phone's vitals are shown in the status bar, which is located at the top of your screen. You may use it to look up the time, check the battery level of your phone, and assess the quality of your connection. The status bar can look cluttered very fast if you receive a lot of notifications.

Go to Options > Notifications > Advanced settings, press Show alerts icons, and then pick 3 most recent to display only three icons at once. This will reduce the amount of notifications that are displayed. Choose None if you don't want any notification icons at all.

By turning on Show battery percentage, you may also add a battery % indicator to the status bar.

8. Make Your Edge Panels Custom

One of the best features of your Samsung phone is the edge panel. By swiping the edge of your screen, you may utilise it to swiftly access your favourite programmes and contacts. You can add or remove whole panels in addition to changing this panel's content.

Edge panels on your Samsung phone can be personalised after you enable them. To view various panel choices, go to Settings > Display > Edge panels and press Panels. You may also add Tasks, Weather, People, and other things in addition to Apps.

To alter the edge panel handle's colour, length, breadth, position, and transparency, return to the previous screen and touch Handle. Even your phone can be set to vibrate when the handle is touched.

9. Modify the Edge Lighting Design

Notifications can be rather intrusive, especially if you get them while watching a video or playing a game. Fortunately, you have the option to customise how notifications appear on your screen. Access Edge lighting style by going to Settings > Notifications > Brief Pop-Up Settings.

You can modify the pop-up effect of your alerts here, including its impact, colour, transparency, and duration.

10. Raise the resolution of your screen

Take advantage of the high-quality display on a powerful phone like the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Go to Settings > Display > Screen resolution to raise the resolution of your screen.

There are three options available: HD+, FHD+, and WQHD+. Set your resolution to WQHD+ right away. It's worth it even if you lose a little more battery.

11. Slide the Back button over to the left.

While the Back button on other Android-powered smartphones is typically located on the left side of the menu bar, it is by default located on the right in Samsung devices. Start modifying by going to Settings > Display > Navigation bar. Here, you may choose to employ swipe gestures for navigating or change the order of the buttons.

Modify the font size and style, 12.

You can choose a different font type if you don't like the one that comes standard on your Samsung phone. Go to Settings > Display > Font size and style to accomplish this. Here, you can change the font's size and boldness.

The pre-installed fonts on your phone can be selected by tapping Font style; alternatively, you can download more fonts from the Galaxy Store by tapping Download fonts. While some fonts are free, some are not.

13. Make Your Ears a Custom Sound Profile

To enhance the sound quality of your Samsung phone, you can design a special sound profile tailored for your ears. Click Settings > Sounds and vibration > Sound quality and effects > Adapt Sound to make this happen.

Choose your device's sound profile based on your age here. You can either select one of the three presets (Under 30, 30 to 60, and Over 60) or build a totally unique sound profile based on a thorough hearing exam.

How to Polish Your Samsung Device

If you use your Samsung smartphone in its default configuration, you won't get the most out of it. All of the personalization choices on a Samsung phone contribute to its appeal. Making your phone more unique not only improves its use, but also greatly improves its aesthetic appeal.

The Samsung Good Lock software is the greatest place to start if you want to further personalise your phone. You have all the tools you need in this all-in-one customization app to remodel your Galaxy phone so that it best reflects your personal style.
