ONE UI Secrets for SAMSUNG Phones

These days, I’m going to write tips and tricks because the tech news in the West isn’t so special.

Going back to the Tips and Tricks heading’s the Boycott ‌ period, I think Samsung phones are becoming more and more popular as boys boycott phones. Admin himself has chosen OnePlus: Tips and Tricks Part (1) which is convenient for many people because it is resold by OnePlus and is owned by Samsung.

Samsung’s One UI is also one of the most comprehensive of the many Android Skins, so there are a lot of Hidden Tricks. If you are a Samsung user who likes this part (1), then Part (2), I will continue writing until Part (3).

Here are some tips and tricks that will work on almost every One UI 3, 3.1 Samsung phone.

1.Call Pop-Up

You are using an application. If you receive a call while playing a game, a pop-up will appear in the upper Noti Bar. You will not be able to exit the game you are playing or the app you are using because the full incoming form of the phone will not appear.
(Keep Calls in pop-up turned on if you want the pop-up to remain on the screen without popping up after the call.)

2.Call Background

If you do not turn on “Keep Calls in pop-up” by holding the pop up call, the phone screen will be full. For dual SIM card users, the Call Background feature is an easy way to find out which SIM card you are calling.

Go to Phone App> Top Three Dots> Settings> Call Background and you will see SIM 1 and SIM 2. Here is a custom background for SIM 1. If you select a background of your choice for SIM 2, you can classify which SIM is calling based on your background.

3.Notification History

This is a native feature of Android 11. When you get a lot of notifications, you get confused and try to clear everything. After clearing, you may find that the notification you want to open is mixed. Notification History can be viewed on One UI, Android 11.
Go to Settings> Notification Settings> Advanced Settings> Notification History.

6. Live Captions and Google Subtitles

Settings >> Accessibility >> Hearing enhancements >> Live caption
