[Poll] What do you think about the Samsung One UI?

So the reason Samsung is taking its time with Android Pie was confirmed today to be a completely new user interface. The Samsung Experience UX will be succeeded by the One UI, a new take on how users access information and features on their devices. One UI will bring both visual and functional changes, and it will also power Samsung’s foldable smartphone.

Samsung’s new user interface is a major overhaul

One UI has a lot going for it, and Samsung will allow us to test it on a Galaxy S9 through the Android Pie beta program. Since we don’t know exactly when the beta program will commence, we can only go by what we have seen at Samsung’s ongoing developer conference. We have already published our hands-on experience with images and videos of One UI in action, and we wanted to ask: What do you think about Samsung One UI?

Do you like what Samsung is doing with its software, or do you think it’s something the company shouldn’t have wasted time on? Do you prefer reserving judgement till you have actually used One UI? Let us know what you think by voting in the poll below, and be sure to tell us your opinion in detail down in the comments section.

What are your thoughts on the new Samsung One UI?

I hope Samsung brings it to S8/S8+. Hope Tom’s guide is wrong.

My favorite icons are from Grace UI, and I really don’t like these new ones. Like, REALLY don’t. They should’ve stuck to what they had. Even the S8 ones were good.

I think it’s a clear symptom that we need decent choices regarding sized-for-human-hands phones in the market again.

As a long time Samsung user at 1st ,I felt some type of way about those icons at 1st
After using it for a few weeks, I can truly say..i really enjoy the new UI. Now I wish my N9 had it too

What they said and showed makes sense. I like how they have changed the usability in the system. What I really don’t like is the new icons, fonts, and pastel colour palette! its the best screen on the market, there should be vibrant and bright colours in “day” mode.
Really glad that they have a decent theme engine!

How good you all think “one ui” is then if samsung won’t release it for S8 and Note8 as they revealed to Tom’s Guide?

They will
And your sentence doesn’t make sense, not releasing it for a phone does not make the One UI bad

They confirmed that they wont release this UI for last year flagships. Google it. Im so disappointed. If this really happens, I will walk away even though I upgrade my Note every year. Samsung should support their flagships more instead of releasing a number of shitty phones like J series and C series. I hate Apple but in terms of software support, they are the best.

Bad icons, amazing ui. Also the app cards should be bigger for better.

The icons looks like cheap chinesse phone around 150$ and are very ugly. Fonts are… meh. If I want stock android experience, I will buy a Pixel phone. The unique UI of Samsung now is …… Oh yeah. And all this anti – notch ads and what do you do now Samsung? Oh yeah – U – shape notch, V – notch. No one cares – it’s a notch. Very dissapointed

bunch of useless comments, you can change anytime icons via theme store, and for sure oreo ones choice will be available.
So all of you guys buy a phone with first icons?
nonsense comments are disappointing!!

you can change the stock icons, but you can’t get dynamic ones! eg, clock, calendar etc to show real in-time figures
so, it’s not such a simple problem
for some people this might not mean anything, but it’s a problem of less functionality so Samsung should care more about this icon-problem
and yes, some icons, especially the telephony one, looks awfull/ childish

Dynamic icons, as you say ARE available on the theme store. my theme has the clock change to reflect the time, and the calendar displays the current date.

So awful!! So disappointed!
Icons are uglier than Android 6. Fonts and icons of Samsung Experience Android 7 & 8 are the most beautiful and modern.
I am a Samfan and I feel so sad and disappointed with One UI of Samsung. :(((

With Samsung Experience icons and font as stock then One UI will be a beautiful UI

Can’t say until I use it, that was my vote but the problem is with the word until because it will probably take 4 or 5 months if not more until the office release.

I would have prefered the ” stick to the current UI + Night Mode” but I know that’s not happening.

“Can’t say until I use it ” and “I hope it’s easy to get used to “
