The data suggests that the latest beta version of One UI 5.0 for the Galaxy S21 includes significant improvements to the lockscreen, such as the option to change the wallpaper without first unlocking the device. In addition, the lockscreen itself may be pressed to alter the appearance of the widgets and the time and date.

Samsung included an automatic midnight restart to improve the overall performance of your device in the first Beta release. Customers were not pleased, so in Beta 2 the company implemented a new feature that disabled the auto-optimization option.
