In Android 13, Samsung eliminated a Quick Settings space from the notification tray.

At least in beta, Android 13 is available for Samsung smartphones. The upgrade is mostly minor, but there is one sad change. One of the Quick Settings shortcuts was deleted from the notification tray in Android 13 by Samsung.

Like all Android devices, Samsung phones have a two-step menu where you may access the Quick Settings. A second swipe will show you the entire list of toggles, which includes numerous pages, while the first swipe will provide you access to a few key shortcuts.

The majority of Android phones operate in this way, however different devices display different numbers of shortcuts at any given time.

For instance, the Quick Settings menu on Google Pixel phones displays a 42 grid on the main panel and a 22 grid above the alerts. Samsung, on the other hand, often displays a 43-grid in the second menu and six toggles in the first. Samsung displays a lot more Quick Settings at once than a Pixel in both scenarios.

With Quick Settings in Android 13, Samsung is making an intriguing turn in the opposite way. On a Galaxy S22, we observed right away that there are now only five Quick Settings icons when booting into the One UI 5.0 beta. It’s odd that Samsung is changing the top-facing menu with this update while leaving the larger 43 grid alone.

Why the abrupt shift? Sincerely, we are unsure.

Although six icons in the condensed first-step menu can occasionally feel a little crowded, using merely five icons looks odd. In any case, the entire purpose of Quick Settings is speed, so eliminating a space simply makes the tool less useful.

One UI 5.0
One UI 4.1

In any event, this is a really little modification that Samsung could easily roll back when One UI 5.0 is completely released later this year.
