What Is Samsung One UI?


A new user interface is coming for Samsung flagships and older models. We look at what One UI has to offer and how you can get it on your device.

At its recent annual developers conference in San Francisco, Samsung unveiled a new-look user interface that will soon be replacing the existing one found on the company’s flagship phones. One UI has modern features, layouts, and modes which could all make it a welcome upgrades for Samsung users.

We take a look at what you can expect from Samsung One UI.

How Is It Different To The Current Samsung Interface?
While the Samsung Galaxy range has been hugely popular, the user interface has been a constant bone of contention. Earlier models like the S4, S5 and S6 came with TouchWiz, which featured garish colours, way too many pre-installed apps, and generally could be a bit of a mess.

By the end of 2016 the Korean giants had fine-tuned and slimmed down the interface to the point where it was renamed the Samsung Experience. This has been the smoother software that users of the S7, S8, Note 8, S9, Note 9 and Plus models have enjoyed ever since.

Now, things are about to change again, but this time in a way that’s more than just a paint job.

One UI marks a new approach for Samsung, making it easier to use devices single-handed, helping you to focus on one thing at a time, alongside improvements to the general experience.
Settings have been grouped together into elegantly separated sections that make it easier to differentiate between things, there’s a new Night Mode that can be set to come on at specific times and works across the whole UI, and the overall approach has been to move control options to the bottom of the screen where they are nearer to your fingers.

You will also be able to swap the classic Android software buttons for swipe gestures if you prefer that method, much like on Android 9 Pie.

Which Samsung Phones Will Be Getting One UI?
So far, we know that the upcoming Galaxy S10 and Samsung’s foldable smartphone the Galaxy X/F will be getting One UI as standard. These models will also get the new interface:
  • S9
  • S9+
  • Note 9
  • S8
  • S8+
  • Note 8
When Is The One UI Release Date?
Samsung has yet to confirm the release date for One UI, but early indications are that it will be in the first few months of 2019. With the Galaxy S10 expected to arrive in February 2019, we think this is when the One UI will make its debut.

Those who have a Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+ can sign up for the Beta testing program that lets you try out One UI before it's officially released. Bear in mind that beta software can often be unreliable and buggy as it’s in the testing stage, so be prepared for some issues along the way.

To sign up you’ll first need to download the Samsung Members app or Samsung+ in the USA. Log in with your Samsung account, go to Notices and select the One UI Beta Program Registration option.
      
With your application submitted you now need to open up Settings > Software Updates, then tap the Download Updates Manually option. If the beta software isn’t readily available for your device, you should check back to this setting every few days until it appears.

Amazon Lord Of The Rings TV Show Latest News

Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV series has been quiet on the news front for the past few months but we're starting to some details emerge for the highly anticipated show.
For most of the past decade, TV producers have been desperate to find ‘the next Game of Thrones’, and now Amazon apparently reckons it’s found it: Lord of the Rings.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
