There is an update timeline at the end so you get to know when your smartphone is getting Realme UI 2.0 update.

Customization Features

Toolbar Options

Starting off with the home screen, the customization toolbar is completely redesigned and it looks better. You get more options right in front of you so you can change the wallpaper, the home screen layout and basically everything is in front of you.

Also if you tap on icons, you get the usual settings and now you can finally use third-party icon packs in Realme UI.

Improved Dark Mode

You also get an improved dark mode in Realme UI 2.0 and it brings three different types of dark modes. If you don’t like a totally black dark mode, you get a slightly gray one and a lighter option as well.

You get additional settings for adjusting icons and wallpapers to the dark mode. Realme UI 2.0 focuses a lot on personalization in fact there is a dedicated personalization section inside settings that basically brings together all the customization options in one handy page.

You get options to adjust the theme, wallpapers, icon, styles and so much more. You can also change the color scheme, the fonts and even the icon shapes for the notifications, alaways on display and quick settings page.

New wallpapers

One of the coolest new features in Realme UI 2.0 is the new wallpapers. If you download an image in your gallery, you just need to tap on a button and Realme UI makes a set of wallpapers based on the color scheme of the image.

Redesigned Apps Homepage

Next there’s a new apps homepage. This looks like the app drawer in Realme UI 1 but there’s a new manage button on top right, so you can sort your apps by most used or you can just sort them alphabetically.

Productivity Features

Floating Window

Realme UI 2.0 brings a new floating window option, so you can have a floating messages app open while using another app as well. It’s like split screen but better. You can copy text from within the floating window and paste it into another app that could be very useful.

Photo Editing Features

There are also more photo editing features. You get more options to edit your photos and the markup option is also more powerful and no longer called doodle. Speaking of photo editing, you just need to swipe up on the preview image and you get options to share the photo or edit it straight away.

Privacy and Security Features

System Cloner

Realme UI 2.0 brings a new system cloner feature this basically creates a copy of the system and you can set it up with a different password and even a different fingerprint to access this clone. In this way you can separate your personal apps, images and all that stuff from your main account.

It’s kind of like the Alt Z life feature that Samsung launched but it’s not as feature-rich. Still it’s a great addition.

Hide your Apps

Now you can hide apps in Realme UI so that dating app or apps you don’t want your parents to know about, you can just hide it and no one will know.

Invisible Door Privacy Feature

Prevent personal data lekage Realme

Realme has also added the invisible door privacy feature, you can enable this feature to keep your data safe from third-party apps. You can enable protection for call logs, contacts messages and events. If a third-party app asks for this information, Realme UI 2.0 will just give it empty information instead.

Security Shield

Similarly there is a security sheet this brings features like payment protection for your payment apps, harassment call blocking and more. Since Realme UI 2.0 is based on Android 11, you get Android 11 security features as well.

Other Minor Changes

Sleep Capsule

Realme UI can help you to get a good sleep as well. Realme UI has a new sleep capsule feature in Realme labs this is sort of like the new sleep mode in iOS 14. It blocks access to apps based on the schedule you set and it’s a little strict in terms of breaking that schedule.

Realme UI 2.0 Sleep capsule

Apparently you can only exit this sleep capsule three times in a month. But if you want to exit it 4th time, you can restart your phone and it will exit downtime. It’s probably a bug.

Gaming Features

Apart from all that, Realme UI 2.0 brings a bunch of other features as well. There’s an improved game space with more options. You can lock brightness, give your games network priority and even automatically adjust resolution to save battery so your phone doesn’t shut down in the middle of call of duty match.

You can now also drag a folder into another one and it just merges the apps together into a single folder.
