Let’s begin this awesome list with Gazeo, our first app on the list. You know, Samsung smartphones have these fabulous displays that scream for eye-catching wallpapers.

Enter Gazeo, the app that spoils you with an exclusive mix of stunning wallpapers for your phone. This bad boy offers more than just static wallpapers – it brings animated live wallpapers to the table, taking your home screen from “meh” to “wowza!” It’s not your average wallpaper app, as the designs themselves will prove.

But wait, there’s more! Gazeo’s user interface is a breath of fresh air. Clean lines, smooth animations, and a smorgasbord of categories to pick from. I’m head over heels for the vibrant flows and landscape collections – they look downright amazing, especially on an AMOLED screen.

Ready to give Gazeo a whirl? Head over to the Play Store and snag this app for free. That’s right, apart from the live wallpapers, you can download and set up all these dazzling wallpapers without spending a dime. So go ahead and let your Samsung device shine!


2) Fingerprint Live Animation

Perhaps the most yawn-inducing aspect of Samsung’s feature-packed One UI is the in-display fingerprint animation. You’d think there would be an option to jazz it up, right? Well, there isn’t. But don’t fret, I stumbled upon a nifty app called Fingerprint Live Animation from Kiva Entertainment, and it’s totally free on the Play Store. It hooks you up with a smorgasbord of snazzy live wallpapers and animations for your fingerprint.

So, here’s the scoop: download and install the app on your phone. Then, open it up and feast your eyes on the selection of rad live wallpapers and animations waiting to give your fingerprint some flair. Mix and match different wallpapers and animations, and you’ve got a ton of combinations to choose from. Just pick your fave, and you can even tweak the animation position to fit your device’s fingerprint placement. Adjust the size of the animation, hit Save, and voilà!

You’ll be greeted with a preview of your lock screen. Just tap on “Set as Animation” and “Done,” and boom! Now, when you lock your phone, you’ll see a fresh new animation that totally revamps the look of your fingerprint. Trust me, you’ll want to give this one a go.


3) Shortcut Maker by Rushikesh Kamewar

Introducing the Shortcut Maker! This nifty app allows you to craft shortcuts for anything your heart desires. But hey, Samsung users, with this app, you’ll also be able to lock apps on your phone effortlessly – quite the lifesaver, since Samsung devices lack a built-in app lock feature.

Here’s the scoop: First, download and install the Shortcut Maker on your phone. Next, head to your home screen, press and hold, choose Widgets, and pop that Shortcut Maker widget right onto your home turf.

Now, pick the app you’d like to secure with a lock. Let’s say, Gmail, for example. You’ll need to enable the Shortcut Lock option and click on Create Shortcut. Voilà! You’ll find two Gmail icons on your home screen, with one created by the Shortcut Maker. Trying to open Gmail? It’ll prompt you for a password or fingerprint scan.

To hide the original Gmail icon, just long-press and navigate to Home Screen Settings. Now choose the option to hide apps on the home screen and app screen. Simply select Gmail and hit Done. Heading back to the home screen, you’ll see just one Gmail icon, and opening it will ask for a password or pin.

With this method, locking any app on your phone is a breeze, and it works just like a native app locker. Don’t miss out on giving this one a whirl!


4) Camera Assistant from Good Lock Labs

Cameras on smartphones just got a sweet upgrade! Introducing the Camera Assistant, a cool new feature in your phone’s camera settings that you may not have discovered yet.

This nifty addition unleashes extra functionality and puts more power in your hands for snapping top-notch pics. For instance, flip on the Quick Tap Shutter option and watch your shutter speed get a serious boost. Plus, you can dive into capture speed settings and pick “prioritize speed” for those perfect action shots.
