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


Last updated: June 28th, 2017 at 09:06 UTC+02:00

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.
