Realme UI Tips and Tricks to Use It Like a Pro
Realme UI utilizes Color OS on top of the Android operating system for their devices since its debut in 2018. While Realme devices always had a warm welcome with users and reviewers, they always had a mixed experience with Realme’s take on Android OS. Meanwhile, early adopters are always looking for Realme UI tips and tricks to make the best of it.
In late 2019, Realme announced Color OS based Realme UI to take on rivals such as Xiaomi’s Redmi and POCO. With the Realme UI, the company aims to bridge the gap between stock Android and its custom UI with a rounded icon and the white theme. Thankfully, Realme isn’t limiting the rollout of Realme UI to the new devices only. The company has updated the majority of the past portfolio to the Android 10-based Realme UI.
In this post, we will talk about the top eleven (11) Realme UI tips and tricks to use it like a pro. The Realme UI is based on Color OS 7.0, so there are similarities in terms of functions between the two. But Realme has done a good job of adding its touches. Let’s get started.
1. FULL SCREEN GESTURES
With the introduction of Android 10, Realme has adopted Google’s default full screen gestures to its UI. They work as expected. Swipe up from the bottom to go home, swipe up and hold to reveal multitasking menu, and swipe from the either of sides to go back in an app.
2. DARK THEME
Here, you will see the benefit of using an OEM UI compared to the stock Android one. Google’s dark theme gets implemented within the apps that support Android 10 dark theme APIs. Whereas Realme’s dark mode forces third-party apps to implement the dark theme.

3. LIVE WALLPAPERS
This is not new in the Android world. Samsung and LG used to offer live wallpapers in the past, but they were too extreme and used to drain the device battery. Realme’s approach is better here.
4. TONS OF CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS
Following footsteps of Color OS, the Realme UI comes with a plethora of customization options. For instance, you can change home screen mode, the layout of apps, add different effects, swipe down gestures, and more.
Realme has added Smart Assistant function in the side drawer. It’s mostly advertisements from the Realme store apps and games.
5. ICON AUTOFILL
This one is useful for iOS wannabes. With a single tap, one can arrange the randomly placed app icons in proper order. Long tap on the home screen and dive into settings. Switch on the Icon Autofill option to rearrange the icons.
6. APP CLONE
Realme has borrowed the App Clone feature from the Color OS. It did a better job than the majority out there. The function is not limited to social apps like WhatsApp, Telegram, or Facebook. You can clone lifestyle and food-ordering apps like Amazon, Swiggy, and Flipkart too.
7. THEME STORE
Theme Store is the heart of the Realme UI experience. With a single tap, you can implement new wallpapers, color accents, fonts, and more. Some may find it flashy, but in markets like India and China, Theme store is extremely popular.

8. REALME SIDEBAR
Realme has added the sidebar shortcut to access the most used apps, games, and tools from the side menu. It’s similar to the Samsung Edge sidebar. Open Realme Setting and go to Convenience tools > Smart Sidebar menu and enable the option.
9. SMART DRIVING
This one is useful for those who frequently drive around the routine for work. When enabled, Smart Driving toggles on Do Not Disturb mode and make necessary changes for a convenient driving experience.
From Smart Driving Settings, you can block calls from anyone, auto-send a message after a rejecting call, block in-app voice and video calls, and even block banner notifications.
10. LOCK SCREEN MAGAZINE
This one is a hit and miss for me. You can enable Lock screen magazine to view stunning images on the lock screen. Go to Settings > Home screen > and scroll down to Lock Screen Magazine. I have turned it off, but if you are a fan of it, then switch on the toggle.
USE REALME UI LIKE A PRO
Realme did a commendable job with the first interaction of its UI over the Android. Going forward, I’m hoping to see more Oxygen OS like approach with closer to stock Android look and feel. With that being said, I can’t wait to see how Realme takes it further with the future updates.
