Customize your LockScreen Using LockStar

When it comes to your Galaxy S24’s lock screen on One UI 6.1, you’ve got a bunch of cool customization options. You can tweak the clock and choose from a selection of lock screen widgets. However, when it comes to AOD, there’s not much flexibility. That’s where LockStar customization steps in. Once LockStar is on your Galaxy S24, let’s dive into the customization choices it offers.

Customize your LockScreen Using LockStar

  1. So, start by opening up the Good Lock app and hit on the LockStar section. You’ll find it up top if you’ve got the module installed already.
  2. Once you’re in the module, it’ll ask for some permissions.
  3. Now, you’ll spot two choices. Just flip those toggles to tweak or personalize the elements you want.

What Elements Can You Customize on the Lock Screen?

When you toggle the Lockscreen in the LockStar app, you get to customize a bunch of stuff. Just tap on the lock screen image to start. It’ll take you to the customization part of the lock screen.

At the top right, you’ll see two icons. Click on the first one to customize how your lock screen looks in landscape mode. Feeling lazy? Just hit Auto Layout, and it’ll sort out the widgets for you.

Check out the lock screen screenshots below to see what you can add or remove easily. To remove any element (except the fingerprint scanner icon), tap on it, then hit the little X button in the corner.

Change the Lock Screen Color and Icons

You have the option to hide or show the system icons on the top of the lock screen. You can’t move the system icons bar around, but you can switch up the lock icon. Just tap the lock icon and then hit the icon with 4 circles inside to change it. There’s a variety of lock icons to choose from and even the chance to add your own. If you’re feeling fancy, experiment with the icon colors to give it a personal touch.

Change The Clock Face Type and Size

One cool feature of One UI 6.1 is the variety of clock faces available for your lock screen. With the LockStar module, you get more options to choose from and resize the faces. Plus, you can place the clock face wherever you prefer on the screen. Just remember, not all clock faces are customizable or movable.

Change The Notification Type

You have the choice to display either app icons or the full notification label indicating new notifications. Opting for the app icons lets you see the specific apps that sent notifications. Furthermore, you can customize by removing the widget, adjusting color, and transparency of the notification label. It’s advisable to keep the colors on automatic if you frequently change wallpapers.

Add or Remove The Now Playing Widget

One of the most valuable widgets available for the lock screen is the now playing widget. It displays the media player currently in use for audio streaming. You have the option to easily relocate or delete this widget from your lock screen. Should you decide to remove it, you can tap on the lock screen to access a variety of widget choices that can be added to the lock screen, provided that the app you prefer offers its own widget.

Adding Stickers To Your Lock Screen

Lock screen customization has evolved significantly. Gone are the days of being stuck with the default lock screen chosen by your device manufacturer. With Android 14 and Samsung’s One UI 6.1, LockStar allows you to personalize your lock screen with fun stickers, adding a unique touch. Discover how to enhance your lock screen with stickers on Samsung phones here. You have the freedom to add as many stickers as you desire, although your options are limited to a predefined set of stickers.

Adding Stickers To Your Lock Screen

The stickers are customizable – you can adjust their size, rotation, and transparency. Currently, there is no feature available to use your own emoji or icon as a sticker.

Adjust The Helpful Messages Section

With this part of the screen, you’ll find messages like fingerprint or face ID for unlocking, your low battery status, and time remaining to charge your device. You can opt to hide, relocate, or personalize it by adjusting the size, transparency, and color. I suggest keeping the message bar at the bottom of the lock screen. No need to search the screen to check the charging time.

Adjust The Helpful Messages Section

Adjust The Quick App Shortcuts Bar

At the screen’s bottom, you’ll find two app shortcuts. Though you can select any app for quick access, did you realize you can actually add up to 5 different app icons there? Alternatively, if you prefer a neat lock screen without these shortcuts, just remove them.

This is the extent of customization available for your lock screen through the LockStar feature from Good Luck, designed for Galaxy S24 devices operating on One UI 6.1.

Customizing AOD Screen with LockStar

The Always on Display screens for smartphones are awesome for checking notifications and the time in a snap. Some even say it’s like the new-gen version of the classic notification LED from a few years ago. Check out the cool stuff you can personalize on the AOD screen with the LockStar customization module.

Changing The Clock Face

You have various clock faces to pick from for your AOD screen. Plus, you can choose to show the battery percentage on your clock widget. If you prefer, you can ditch the clock entirely. Just remember, you can’t move the clock face or much else on the AOD screen.

Change App Icon Notifications Color

The icons for key apps like calls, messages, calendars, and email are customizable. You can opt for a variety of colorful icons or go for a single color across all. Just tap on the widget, then on the bottom right to access the color options. If needed, you can remove these icons from your AOD screen anytime.

Change Charging Info Style

For the AOD screen, you’ve got two options for charging info messages. If you prefer not to show it on the AOD screen, just tap the X button to get rid of it. Similar to the rest, you won’t be able to relocate this message screen.

Adding New Widgets

The AOD screen, similar to the lock screen, allows you to add widgets from any app as long as there’s a specific widget for it. Just tap on the screen, hit the add widget pop-up, choose from the app list, and select your widget. Voilà! Your widget is in place. Keep in mind, you can’t move it around on the AOD screen.
