OS, UI and software

Unihertz Jelly Star runs on stock Android 13. Despite the display's small size, everything is clearly visible and you won't miss any elements you're used to on a regularly sized smartphone. The Lock Screen has the usual big Time widget, small Date widget, basic status bar icons - Wi-Fi and battery, and charging status. The Home Screen lists the usual favorite apps with a docked row of apps - three per row. Hence, it is entirely occupied by icons. Desktop shortcuts are supported. A swipe to the right from the Home Screen opens Google Discover. A swipe to the left from the Home Screen opens the next desktop on which you will see the LED Lights widget. A swipe up from the Home Screen opens the app drawer that lists the applications in alphabetic order. The Task Manager tiles the apps horizontally. For each, you can access the app info, enter split screen mode (if supported by the specific app), and enter messages.
It is a bit difficult to fund an empty space on the Home Screen to bring up the Widget menu. It contains three groups of options - Wallpaper & style, Widgets, and Home settings. The latter manages the notification dots and the icon size - you can make the icons smaller and bigger. When they're smaller, you get more space on the desktops. You can also toggle onm/off Google Discover as well as toggle on/off the app drawer. A single swipe from the top of the display opens the list of notifications with four toggles on top. A second swipe opens the Quick Settings shade topped by the brightness level bar. The Quick Settings toggles appear on two pages - eight per page. The Volume level bar appears on the left side of the display right next to the left frame where the Volume Up-Down button is. It is accompanied by a Live Caption icon. When active, this feature detects speech on your device and automatically generates captions.
Unihertz Jelly Star arrives with a classic set of pre-installed apps without bloatware. The Google apps include the Assistant, Calendar, Chrome, Drive, Files, Meet, Gmail, Keep Notes, Maps, Photos, Play Store, YouTube, and YT Music. The standard Android apps comprise a Calculator, Camera, Clock, Contacts, FM Radio, Messenger, Phone, and Sound Recorder. The additional applications include the Toolbox one (usually found on every rugged smartphone), Student mode, NFC cards, and Zaza Remote for setting up your mobile as a TV remote controller. The Safety features from the Settings app are also listed as a separate Safety application.
The Settings app lists all menus without any visual grouping. It begins with the settings search bar followed by the "My Device" menu. The latter should replace the "About Phone" menu but the Jelly Star is no exception among the latest pure Android smartphones that lists both. "My Device" provides information about the model name, software, latest build version, device specifications, and device-identifiable data. The second menu is called "Network & internet". It manages the internet connectivity of your device, the Hotspot & Tethering feature, the Mobile data, and SIM cards. There's also a toggle for airplane mode and the network speed. Furthermore, you can set up your network preferences and the Wi-Fi Direct functionality. The third menu is about connections to other devices via Bluetooth, NFC, Cast display, Printing, Nearby Share, and Android Auto. The Apps menu is fourth lets you manage your apps and monitor your screen time.
"Apply Advanced Settings" is the sixth menu and contains a group of three options - Network Manager, App Blocker, and App Freezer. The Network Manager lets you choose which app should use mobile and WLAN internet or only one of those. The App Blocker accelerates the system and reduces power consumption by restricting background apps. The App Freezer removes a selected app from the desktop. "LED Lights" is the menu that manages the two LED lights on the rear shell. You can set the intensity of the light and select which events should be accompanied by this effect - notifications, music visualizations, incoming calls, charging reminders, etc. You can also set the lights to "Always on" but this will drain the battery faster. "Intelligent Assistance" is the eighth menu contains several toggles for functions you might find useful - switching the capacitive navigation buttons, stopping the navigation bar from functioning, forbidding the expansion of the status bar on the lock screen, etc. This menu also lets you manage the vibration modes of the fingerprint reader, activate and select the amount of the virtual RAM expansions, call recorder, flip to mute, and LED notification light settings.
The "Notifications" menu is next and manages app notifications, history, conversations, bubbles, privacy settings in the notifications settings, DND mode, wireless emergency alerts, and other related options. It is followed by the Shortcut Settings menu which allows you to assign a desired function to the physical button on the right frame of the smartphone. The Battery and Storage menus follow the Notifications one. The "Sound & vibration" is next and contains the standard four volume-level bars, DND mode, ringtones, and various specific toggles. It is followed by the "Display" menu described in the corresponding section of this review. The "Accessibility" menu comes next comprising the usual options for assisted app management, viewing/hearing content, etc. The Security settings are also standard with the four default services, screen lock settings, options for creating and managing fingerprint ID(s) and a face ID, Smart Lock settings, Device admin apps, Encryption & Credentials, Trust agents, and App pinning options.
The next menu is about "Privacy" which begins with the Privacy Dashboard that offers an overview of which apps recently have used permissions. It continues with the permission manager to control app access to your data, several toggles for app-specific permissions, autofill service from Google, location history, activity controls, ads management, and usage & diagnostics. The "Location" menu comes next offering an additional privacy context - granting access to your location information to apps and services. The "Safety & Emergency" settings contain options for entering emergency information, managing your SOS reactions and contacts, setting your emergency location service, and managing the wireless emergency alerts - the same setting is also available in the Notifications menu. This menu is also available as the "Safety" app that appears in the list of applications on the desktop.
The "Passwords & Accounts" group of settings is self-explanatory. It is about managing your passwords saved on the device, autofill service, synced accounts, etc. The usual "Digital Wellbeing & Parental Controls" and "Google" settings comes next followed by the last two ones - "System" and "About Phone". The "System" menu is about managing your languages and input, gestures settings, date and time, backing up data, resetting the device, managing multiple users' access to the device, and checking for updates. It also contains a feature that was present on older Android versions - schedule power on and off. The Gestures menu contains the settings for system navigation, quick camera access, and the "press-and-hold" power button feature. "About Phone" is the last set of options and almost doubles entirely the date listed in the first menu - "My Device."
