Download Galaxy S5 Settings UI App for Galaxy S4 & Note 3

Get Samsung Galaxy S5 Settings App UI now. The S5 has brought some noticeable updates and UI changes to its stock apps. They are simpler, flatter and more catchy to the eye. One of these apps is also the settings menu which has been drastically redesigned, again.

I say again because the settings app changed on the Galaxy S4 too, breaking the scrollable list into four tabs, and each tab containing many different options. On the GS5, instead of the tabs you will get only one page.

The icons are a lot bigger, rounder and brighter than the previous ones. They are listed horizontally but if you don’t like it you can change the “View Type” to Scrollable List.
