The Galaxy S22 series’ One UI 5.0, which is based on Android 13, has been beta tested by Samsung since last week. The new One UI version also includes certain adjustments and add-ons from the Korean company along with Android 13 goodies. One of the modifications slows down Quick Settings. One shortcut to Quick Settings has been eliminated by Samsung from the notification tray.
The majority of Android smartphones provide a two-step notification tray. You may access a few customisable shortcuts and your notifications by swiping down on the homescreen. The entire Quick Settings grid with the option to arrange the buttons would appear after a second swipe. Depending on the creator, the number of shortcuts you see at either phase varies, but they all adhere to the same system.
Six shortcuts have historically been displayed in the first step of Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones. However, the business has lowered it to five with One UI 5.0. This redesign, which was first noticed by 9to5Google , seems strangely out of alignment and overspaced. Of course, with one fewer shortcut button, the Quick Settings panel is also slower. However, the 43 grid that shows up after the second swipe is unaltered.

Users in Germany, South Korea, and the US will be able to access the One UI 5.0 beta for the Galaxy S22 series, according to Samsung’s official release. However, based on previous beta programs, the One UI 5.0 beta will probably also be made available in the UK, China, Poland, and India. Naturally, there hasn’t been any official confirmation of that as of yet. If we find out anything, we’ll let you know.
A 5.0 beta user interface will be expanded to more Galaxy smartphones. It is not unexpected that Samsung started testing the One UI 5.0 beta with the Galaxy S22 series. Usually, the business first releases a fresh Android version for its most recent foldables. However, it shouldn’t be long until additional Galaxy smartphones can join the test program. One UI 5.0 beta should be available for devices including the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S20, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Note 20, and Galaxy Z Fold 2 in the upcoming weeks.

Many of those phones will, however, receive the Android 13 update along with One UI 5.0. The Galaxy S22 series will once again top the pack when the stable update launches later this year. We’ll keep you informed.
