Out of all of Samsung's fun customizations in One UI and its Galaxy phones, the dynamic lock screen is low-key one of my all-time favorites. With other phones, I often forget how easily bored I can get with the standard lock screen options, but this dynamic feature automatically updates all the time in the background and gives me a pleasant surprise each time. I'll show you just how easy it is to toggle this setting on so that you can start enjoying a little variety on your Galaxy phone.

How to enable Samsung's dynamic lock screen

That's it. Now you'll be greeted with a new lockscreen image each time you go to open your phone. Better still, the image gallery will automatically update every couple of weeks, so you'll never get too tired of what appears on your lockscreen.

The best for most peopleWith the richest 120Hz screen around, battery for days, and top-of-the-line performance, Samsung makes a flagship that actually justifies its premium price without being too full of itself or too overstuffed to hold comfortably.

Backdrops Wallpapers (Available on the Google Play Store)

Backdrops offers hundreds of original designs, many of which skew towards geometric, minimalistic dreamscapes. They present a nice departure from the real world!

Outline Icons ($2 at Google Play)

The name kind of says it all here, but this icon pack stands out thanks to its brightly-colored, outlined versions of popular app icons. It looks especially striking against darker wallpapers.

Action Launcher (Free at Google Play)

We love Action Launcher because it is so customizable. It offers robust gesture controls, myriad palette colors, and top-notch customer support.
