Samsung’s main goals with One UI are to make sure users can see important information at a glance and easily access various actionable elements with one hand, and One UI also brings a number of visual changes as a result. It’s one of the biggest upgrades to Samsung’s proprietary Android user interface we have seen, with a number of new features and functionality added as well.

We’ve already covered many of those new features, and with the stable Galaxy S9 Android Pie update now available in a number of countries, Samsung pretty much has the final version of One UI ready for public use. And we thought this might be a good time to put some screenshots together to show our readers how One UI compares visually to the Samsung Experience UX on Android Oreo.

There are plenty of visual changes on One UI, from something as small as the placement of the clock in the status bar to major aspects such as the notification shade and app icons. Not everyone is going to like all these changes, which is fine, but some of you may change your mind seeing both Oreo and Android Pie screenshots side by side.

So go ahead and check out the screenshots below; the Android Pie/One UI version is on the right in each screenshot. Wondering if your Galaxy smartphone will be updated to Pie? Check out our dedicated Android 9 Pie page!
