TouchWiz Home update for Galaxy S8 and S8+ promises to fix the lag

Home / News / TouchWiz Home update for Galaxy S8 and S8+ promises to fix the lag

Yesterday we wrote about lag and UI fluidity problems on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, and how Samsung needs to fix those problems on its flagship smartphones. It seems like the company had already been working to fix some of those issues. The company has now released an update to its TouchWiz Home launcher to fix the lag.

As per the company’s official changelog for Samsung TouchWiz Home v6.1.09.2, the update should now fix the lag when swiping up and down between the homescreen and the app screen. It also improves the visibility of app names under icons against a white wallpaper. We can notice that animations have improved and the lag is not as noticeable as earlier.

The update is now available for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ through Galaxy Apps as well as through the Play Store.

Fixed nothing, changed nothing. I’m actually a bit depressed about this, samsung claim all sorts of fixes, yet they don’t seem to do much on my s8+. Still a bit red overall, red amoled modes ec etc.

When I checked mines it says June 20th not June 27th so does that mean I got this update 7 days ago? Because there’s no update indicator for me

Don’t know what to say, I bought s7 last month but I don’t feel any software lightness. I’m just confident in future updates (more or less) and needed some Samsung features

Didn’t press the reply button, my fault
