The two main design paradigms in Samsung’s One UI Android skin are vertical padding and rounded UI elements. The extra empty space at the top of most menus brings touchable elements closer to your thumb, and the rounded UI elements match the curved corners of modern smartphone screens. While you can’t add the vertical padding on other Android phones, you can now get the rounded corners.
As with most things that change the Android system UI, you need to be rooted to make this drastic change. You also need to have Magisk Manager installed, but you can get away on both fronts using the guides linked in the Requirements section below.
: Install G-Visual Mod
First, open your Magisk Manager app and select the puzzle piece icon from the menu bar at the bottom of the screen. Here, click the search icon and type “g-visual”, then tap the download arrow next to the first result and click “Install” at the prompt.
Step 2: Select your settings
This next part is a bit unusual. When you start flashing the module in Magisk Manager, you will see it stop and prompt you. You have to select the number of the option you want to use, which you do with the volume buttons.
The prompt starts at “1” and you can press the Volume Up button to move it to “2” and “3” and so on. Once the number shown in the prompt matches the number of the menu item you want to choose, press the Volume Down button to select it.
So for these purposes select “1. UI Radius” in it Main menu prompt. Then select “3. Large” in it G-UI Radius Mod prompt. Then press the Volume Up button to confirm your choice and then select “5. Continue” from the Main menu prompt. When it’s done flashing, hit the blue “Restart” button in the lower right corner.
Step 3: Enjoy rounded corners
When your phone has rebooted, several SystemUI elements now have that One UI aesthetic. The bottom of the Quick Settings panel in both Concise and Extended views, the notifications in your notification tray, and even the cards in your recent apps menu have rounded corners. To enjoy!
