The display is important, but what else? Android 9.0 Pie with One Ui 1.1 Interface with security update from this year (from the beginning of May). The interface is not overloaded with additions, but it has a few preinstalled apps. Besides the classic set from Google, we have apps from Microsoft (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive and LinkedIn), we will find Facebook and a bit to brazen incentive to use Spotify).
Samsung adds its own browser, e-mail client, gallery or recorder. There is files manager, health and fitness app Samsung Health and their own store with apps. There is Bixby as well, but at this time without a separate button. There is a system management app as well.
The interface has a classical tray version, but we can change the grid of icons and the tray, we can change the arrangement of system buttons and the panel of switches. Three system buttons can be replaced with gestures, just like we move to the apps’ tray with gestures as well. For traditionalists – there is the classic button that leads us to the tray. Gestures can control muting signals or extend the notifications panel without reaching the top of the display.
We can of course wake the display with a double tap or keep the display lit when we are looking at it. There is one hand usage or Game Launcher modes as well, which limits any “disturbances” and we can record the display in the HD quality. Everything is presented in a neat, readable form, with elements placed in such a way that they are always at hand. I asses the interface high – I did not found anything that I could criticize.
