[Poll] Samsung’s Android Pie app icons will probably be better with final release

The one major worrying aspect of the Galaxy S9 Android Pie beta leak that surfaced earlier week is no doubt the new icons Samsung is using for its proprietary apps. As many of you pointed out in the comments, those icons just don’t look good. You could call them cute, but they aren’t what any of us want to see in the final Android Pie release. And, well, they probably will look much better in the final version of Pie.

Those Android Pie icons will like go through many changes

The few weeks between the alpha and beta Pie builds show how Samsung is constantly making changes to the user interface on Pie. There’s a new Night theme that will allow users to switch to a black theme across the OS without having to opt for third-party themes, and the beta build has a better implementation of the Night theme than the alpha one that came before it. It does seem like the new app icons are stock icons and not something out of a third-party theme. But we can expect Samsung to improve on those once it starts collecting feedback with the Android Pie beta program.

That beta program can go live any day now as we approach the time of the year the previous betas were announced, so don’t lose hope just yet. In the meantime, how about telling us your opinion of those new app icons down in the comments? You can also vote in the poll that you see below.

What do you think of those app icons on the leaked Galaxy S9 Android Pie build?

I think the current Nougat/Oreo is the best looking. If Samsung choose to stick to the leaked UI styles then It’s gonna look ugly like it did on the S5 with Lollipop/Marshmallow (Teal/Green UI).

The icons of Samsung Experience 10 are not the best that Samsung has ever designed (nothing is worse than the icons of the GT-I8520), but they are not the worst.
But it is a fact that the Samsung Internet Browser icon should be redesigned.

If these are the icons, this Note8 will be my last Samsung phone. I’m already not liking the new UI and now these icons? Come on!

I don’t think there will be a drastic change, i know it’s early to say and there could be some tweaks here and there but the design language itself will propably be similar to what we have seen. And maybe that’s because they don’t want to look alot different than stock android just a guess.
