Last year, Google released its latest Android version – Android 12 that comes with various features and customizations. Different phone makers are adopting Android 12 including Samsung, the world’s largest phone maker. Though Google releases Android operating system upgrades but Samsung keeps them in a slightly steady manner with software updates that roll out on time.
Therefore, a healthy comparison between One UI 4.0 and Android 12 is a must-to-do task and we’re ready to perform it. For your information, Samsung One UI 4.0 has a lot of new customizations that make it one of the best customized Android mobile software. The latest version has new improvements for user interface, features, and UI customization such as a color palette that makes the user experience vivid.
On the other hand, Stock Android is an open space that has nothing to worry about the customizations, it’s just a simple plane Android that runs on Pixel devices and similar ones. But Stock Android 12 is something that you should check if you own a Pixel smartphone.
After these instructions, let’s begin our comparison saga between One UI 4.0 vs Stock Android 12 for the Quick Settings menu.
First comes Android 12:
You need to swipe down to open the Android 12 quick Settings menu and access the quick access switches. As shown below, Samsung has brought in a new tiles system that will enhance the user experience. The tiles are big and easy to touch, so, there’s no chance of missing a tap. You can also customize the order and the tiles from the quick settings menu.
Furthermore, Android 12 will take care of your concerns over the customizations with its new Material You theme options that automatically generate a color pallet for primary and accent system UI colors based on your phone’s current home screen wallpaper. The Material You is something new and increases the looks and appearances efficiently without requiring the installation of any third-party plugin.
One UI 4.0
Samsung One UI 4.0 continues to carry a Quick setting layout from One UI 3.1, except the company has made minor tweaks in the arrangement of top labels and quick access icons are brighter and easy to spot. On the other hand, the brightness and sound sliders look better than before. The overall looks and feel of the user interface have been improved as compared to the One UI 3.1 software that does make a difference in user experience.
Don’t forget that One UI 4.0 comes with a new color palette feature that allows you to make some changes are the Material You since it’s also an Android 12 adaptation.
From a consumer‘s perspective, both of these quick settings user interface comes with lots of new options. However, the One UI 4.0 seems more friendly and easy to navigate as compared to the Android 12. Also, there are a lot of options that could show up on the One UI 4.0 screen view that may not appear on stock Android 12 quick settings.
iOS 15 vs iOS 16: What’s new in Control Center?
Apple has released iOS 16 for iPhones and users are installing this new software to get the latest features. We’ll compare iOS 16 with the iOS 15 control center and inspect its different perspectives and what’s new in these prime iOS versions.
What is Control Panel:
Control Center allows you to enable or disable various instant features without requiring you to open them entirely on the Settings menu. This feature is similar to quick settings in Android phones.
iOS 15 Control center allows you to access the control center with a swipe downwards from the top right corner of the screen.
From there you can manage connectivity such as BlueTooth, WiFi, Airplane mode, and more. On the other hand, you can control playback, as well as brightness and sound sliders.
Furthermore, you can edit these switches from the Settings and add more shortcuts.
iOS 16 brings you the same Control Center as iOS 16 and there are no major changes found in appearance. Meanwhile, the options remain the same as well.
EMUI 11 vs EMUI 12: Settings menu and its design
EMUI 11 has been a good software but the company has brought a set of new features with the successor – EMUI 12. These functions are new and better than ever before. Therefore, It’s time that we look into the Settings menu of EMUI 11 and EMUI 12.
EMUI 11 comes with a straightforward design that has been adopted from EMUI 10.1 and EMUI 10.0. However, it has better fluency than the past versions.
The icons look good and are composed of vibrant colors. The background cards are straight and have sharp corners. The overall design is niche and elegant.
EMUI 12 Settings Menu has better visibility over EMUI 11 with the new font family. It has fresh designed fonts that help you to understand the labels clearly.
As compared to EMUI 11, the new Settings menu is inspired by the HarmonyOS operating system. You can check the difference between both of the settings menus as they are shown below.
The menu option icons are smaller than EMUI 11 and the color vibrance is subtle. On the other hand, the menu has a round corner background card to group certain categories of options.
In the end, the combination of icons, font, and the overall color increases the user experience and allows you to enhance interactiveness with eh user interface.
HarmonyOS 3 animation is smoother and faster than One UI 5.0 and iOS 16 [Video]
A short comparison video shows Huawei HarmonyOS 3 has better and smoother animation than Samsung’s One UI 5.0 and Apple iOS 16 software with a swipe gesture in action.
HarmonyOS 3 is a massive improvement over HarmonyOS 2, as it offers various updates to past features. However, there’s one special specialty of the software that you can never underestimate – animations, which are deeply built into the inner core of the operating system and based on the motion of physics.
Tipster Ice Universe has shared a comparison of UI animation between Huawei Mate 50 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, and iPhone 14 Pro. These phones are packed with HarmonyOS 3.0, One UI 5.0, and iOS 16 respectively.

The video shows the swipe-up gesture directly from the home bar, and HarmonyOS 3 is the first to respond against the other software. Also, the animation is pretty fast in HarmonyOS 3 as compared to One UI 5.0 and iOS 16. The smoothness in the start and end curves is also noticeable in the slow motion.
We also want to mention that iOS 16 has kept the same rhythm as HarmonyOS 3 but One UI 5.0 has a very sluggish outcome when it comes to UI animations.
Animations are important and they create an intriguing effect on the user experience. Huawei’s self-developed design brings new capability to take full advantage of the hardware and optimizes the software for the best possible use cases.
Apple too has the same advantage over Android phones such as Samsung and iPhones optimizations always keep rocking on the benchmarks.

Similarly, Huawei has started to harness the power of the mobile operating system and make it better for consumers. We also want to note that Samsung does need critical improvements in One UI and it should rise the level if it wants to compete against the best in the industry.
On one hand, Samsung is offering less in the software, while on the other HarmonyOS 3 has boasted so many features ready to explore.
