Samsung One UI

Samsung announced its own Samsung One UI which is based on Android pie for its galaxy smartphones.
  Samsung's new UI i.e Samsung One UI, this new design is pretty awesome it got changed everything from lock screen to navigation gestures. This UI is an improvement over the previous Experience UI. Samsung's Experience UI isn't bad either but its slow compared to others. If you want to know about Samsung One UI then you are at the right place.

What is Samsung One UI ?

Samsung One UI is an Android based operating system or interface designed by Samsung for its galaxy devices which will replace the existing Experience UI that is successor to TouchWiz.

Why Samsung One UI ?

Samsung's Experience UI is was an improvement over the previous TouchWiz but its considerably slow compared to others. So Samsung's Experience UI is being hated by users and tech reviewers, who wanted an update or improvement over that UI. It doesn't mean that Experience UI is bad either it offers good customization to the users but as mentioned it isn't as good as others. Then the new Samsung One UI came into the play.

Samsung claims that it is redesigned for One handed usage as the smartphones are becoming taller and taller, and to be smoother than before although the beta One UI in Galaxy S9 made clear that it smoother than the previous UI but as it is a beta update Samsung can do a lot more to make it stable and even more smoother because the One UI is not smoother as expected the animations could be faster, some visuals could be better. Samsung is also offering more customisations of themes in One UI.

Samsung has promised Android 9 for some of their smartphones in 2019, and also started beta testing the update on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 plus smartphones. In fact, the 3rd beta update was rolled out just a few days ago, and now the company is rolling out a quick hotfix update to fix all the bugs.

After using Samsung One UI in Galaxy S9 we felt that it really had an improvement and it feels like it is just made to improve one hand usage as all the options in settings, clock, dialer, contacts etc are now shown below i.e near to the bottom which does mean that its more comfortable to reach those. Notification panel is fully redesigned and it falls down to the bottom of the screen when it pulled down which makes it even more comfortable to adjust the brightness and reach the quick settings.

One of the biggest goals with One UI is to help users "focus on the task at hand." To achieve this, One UI removes a lot of clutter from the Samsung Experience and makes things much cleaner. For example, the settings page is being simplified even more and regrouping certain settings together so that they're easier to get to. The phone, notes, email, and other Samsung apps also have a new look to only show essential information.


Navigation bar got an update Samsung is now offering navigation gestures which functions as follows - swipe up from right to go back, swipe up from middle for home and swipe up from left for recents.
Recent apps menu now got an all new view, now it scrolls horizontally, this looks cool in S9 as it has curved display.

Some new features in Samsung One UI

Now they added more styles and layouts for Always on Display and lockscreen which looks cool. Notifications will be shown in the Always on Display like a bubble.
