Optimizing Realme UI 2.0

Android 11 has already been released on all supported Realme models. Users have had time to try out the new shell and become familiar with the features. Now you should pay attention to the optimization of Realme UI 2.0 on your smartphone, as some unnecessary options work in the background and consume battery power.

This article will not tell you how to cut all the settings as much as possible to make your phone last a couple of hours longer. We will show you what you can do to make it more convenient and improve the experience in everyday life. The Realme UI 2.0 setup instructions will be useful for all the newbies who are just going to understand their device.

Detailed setup of Realme UI 2.0

В этой статье мы кратко опишем что и как нужно делать, подробное описание вы сможете найти в нашем видео (в самом конце страницы). Также, чтобы облегчить выполнение указанных операций, будем идти по порядку (сверху вниз) согласно системным настройкам.

Sim cards and mobile data

Optimizing Realme UI 2.0: customizing 20 features

Here you should pay attention to the item "Data traffic", which is located at the very bottom. This menu is responsible for the consumption of packet megabytes of mobile Internet and Wi-Fi. You can view the total traffic, set usage limits or disable it.

Also in the item "Allow network access" it is recommended to go through all applications and for unnecessary - to disable or limit the use of the Internet.


Scroll through the list of WiFi networks and at the end find the advanced settings, go there. Disable these items:

  1. Wi-Fi connection assistant.
  2. Always look for nets.
  3. Passpoint.

Connection and sharing

If you use NFC, you don't need to turn it off. As the contactless payment module is triggered only at the moment of payment transactions or reading NFC tags. In this menu, below, it is recommended to disable "screen translation" and "print service".

In this menu, the following items affect battery consumption (it's up to you to disable them or not):

  • live wallpaper, especially if a regular video is installed through a third-party application;
  • always on display, there is only on models with a full Amoled screen;
  • the light signal on the edge.

Home screen and lock screen

To avoid displaying adware applications on the desktop, you need to disable the "show suggested applications" option. You can also set a comfortable animation speed. In the last submenu, deactivate the functions: lifting the phone to activate and turning on the screen with a double tap. If you have a lock screen cover available - you can also disable it.

Screen and brightness

Optimizing Realme UI 2.0: customizing 20 features

Если у вас Amoled экран, то здесь нужно уделить особое внимание режиму затемнения. Я рекомендую включать темную тему, чтобы ночью можно было комфортнее использовать смартфон, а также немного экономить заряд батареи. Отключаем авторегулировку яркости для автоматического затемнения или осветления экрана. Выставляем авто выключение экрана, в среднем пользователю хватает 1 минуты. Отключаем эффект OSIE, так как на практике от него нет толку.

Also scroll to the bottom and go to "More", and if your model supports more than 60 hertz then set the refresh rate of the screen to auto. Also for convenience, here you can set the output front camera in the applications.

Notifications and status bar

Optimizing Realme UI 2.0: customizing 20 features

  1. Go straight to "Notification Management".
  2. Here you can set from which applications, for example, you do not want to receive any notifications. Select and, if necessary, disable.
  3. And in the item "More" turn off the line "Turn on the screen when receiving notifications".


Здесь (в меню управлениями разрешениями) можно дополнительно просмотреть какие разрешения выданы тем или иным приложениям, и при необходимости их убрать. После отключаем рекламный идентификатор, чтобы рекламные службы не собирали личную информацию и не предлагали товары и услуги исходя из ваших предпочтений.


Here you can optionally disable the "Find device" function, so that it cannot be tracked remotely. But if we do this and the phone is suddenly lost, then it cannot be found on the map. You can also turn off emergency alerts, which hardly work in our countries.

Here we recommend that you choose one of two scenarios:

  1. When the GPS is on all the time and consumes battery power for communication.
  2. When GPS is turned off and only turned on when used, for example for maps or other services that do not work without the location.

Just remember that an active location may from time to time make requests to find satellites and exchange data packets about your location.

Smart services

The only thing you can disable is the "Smart Assistant" (also called "Google feed"). It is a side ribbon that opens by swiping from the left edge on the home screen.

Handy tools

Optimizing Realme UI 2.0: customizing 20 features

Here you can set up how you want to use the navigation on your smartphone, either with virtual buttons or gestures. In gestures and movement, I recommend leaving only the options you need. Also, if you don't use it, turn off "Handy Button" and "Sidebar Smart Panel". And if you do not use split screen or this feature sometimes falsely works in unnecessary moments, then also turn it off. You can also turn off Google Assistant here.

This is a very voluminous item, so pay special attention to it:

  • Activate the power saving mode, then click on it and set the convenient settings.
  • In the "Application Battery Consumption Management" it is recommended to manually go through and limit unnecessary programs to work in the background.
  • In the "Other battery settings" go to "Quick freeze" and select those applications that are needed but are used very rarely. In this way, all its processes will be completely stopped and will only start working when the same application is activated by the user himself.

Digital Wellbeing

This is a Google project that collects data about you through almost all of your smartphone usage. Almost all of the features are scattered throughout the Realme UI and ColorOS settings, so it doesn't make much sense to use Digital Wellbeing. It also can't be turned off completely, but some features can and should be restricted.

  1. Click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the screen.
  2. Select Data Management.
  3. Disable "Using the device for the day".

Application Management

Optimizing Realme UI 2.0: customizing 20 features

Go to "Default apps". Here you can set the desired browser, calls, sms and completely disable the voice assistant Google. You can also check which applications have the autorun feature and, if necessary, disable it.


Единственное, что здесь стоить изучить, это пункт "Другое". На некоторых смартфонах собирается очень много ненужных временных файлов и автоматических скачанных материалов. Подробнее в этом видео.

Additional settings

  • The Process Manager is recommended if you have an extensive list of running processes. This will help extend battery life in some cases.
  • Scheduled power on and off. It will only help if your battery is running more than 7% overnight. Under normal conditions, this figure should be about 2-3 percent.
  • Receive recommendations - disable.

Также обратите внимание на настройки в пункте для разработчиков. Здесь описано как его включить, а здесь подробно расписаны все фишки.

Realme Lab

Optimizing Realme UI 2.0: customizing 20 features

As updates are released, this menu may be updated and new features may be added or existing features may be edited. We recommend that you stop by from time to time and test new experimental options.

Other useful settings

And in conclusion, let's go over a few more elements of Realmi's smartphone optimization.

  • Погода. Если вы используете встроенные сервисы погоды, то убедитесь, что у вас стоит погода не по автоматическому местоположению. Добавьте нужный город вручную. Если будет стоять авто, то погодные прогнозы без включенного GPS не будут обновляться.
  • Диспетчер телефона. Очень полезное приложение, рекомендуется хотя бы изредка использовать его. В настройках выставьте автопроверку каждые 3 дня, полностью отключать не нужно, так как идет сканирование на вирусы и рекламные метки и ненужные разрешения для приложений.

Video tutorial

In this article we have collected all the functions that can be at least somehow affected. If these configuration and optimization options do not suit you - then write in the comments about your method of better use of your smartphone.

      Сделайте сброс. Система занимает около 11 гигов. Скорее всего где-то произошел сбой.

      Эквалайзер только в наушниках и работает. При подключении зайдите в звуки - если долби атмос, то сюда, если другое там будет просто эквалайзер.

      1. None.
      2. Try the Realme Phone Clone app.
      3. In Realmi Android Auto is embedded in the system, located in the notification panel or in the connection settings.
      4. If there is such a thing in the Marketplace, you can.

      The stock launcher does not provide the function to adjust the application menu. If you want to adjust this menu, you need to download and install on your phone (from Google play, for example) a third-party launcher, there are a lot of them

    Wonderful review. Long "struggled" with my Realme Q3 5G (100% Chinese), until I came across this site. Was able to do a lot. Thanks to the author.
