A prestige business smartphone – but not only

  • I can write for a long time about functions that we can use. So I will describe only the most important elements in Experience UI:

    • we can choose between a classical interface with apps menu or with the main screen and consecutive desktops as in iOS
    • we can quickly change wallpapers and whole themes
    • “quick menu” (that is a button with handy options) which appears after holding down an icon
    • one hand usage
    • gestures control
    • BixbyHome – far left screen with information and tabs from selected source – in practice a weak substitute for Google Feed and another place in which Samsung forces Bixby
    • changing the screen resolution
    • preventing the display from locking when the user is looking at it (Smart Stay)
    • Samsung Pass – a service for storing and filling passwords and logins data
    • Apps Edge – edge interface that uses the arced display of the phone. Additional interface that slides from the edge, in which the user can place selected apps, contacts or tools
    • Always On Display (AoD), that is notifications shown on a dimmed display, with wide personalization options when it comes to displayed elements.

    We do not know how quickly Samsung will deal with providing an update to Android Pie. The Experience add-on (here in the 9.5 version) is enhanced and it basically interferes in every aspect of the system. Changes cover not only the looks of the interface and the usage of different stylus functions – the settings menu is completely different as well. Samsung has preinstalled a wide range of their own apps, for example Knox – for cyphering and securing data, Samsung Pay – for payment, Samsung Notes – an enhanced app for notes and drawing and Device Maintenance – that is an intuitive app for managing and optimizing power usage, internal memory and RM. There is a possibility to use two apps in social media (for example Facebook and Messenger). Besides there is a set of apps from Google and apps from Microsoft.
