Samsung One UI has been under the spotlight ever since the company revealed it at its developer conference last year. It’s a beautiful interface that makes one-handed use easier on big-screen phones and introduces plenty of new features, and Samsung has also been pretty quick with releasing One UI through the Android Pie update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9.
But One UI isn’t without its problems. Some of it seems to be a result of Samsung rushing to get the official update out the door. Examples include the missing Night mode schedule or the inability to record videos in the camera’s Pro mode. Some of it is deliberate, like the new app icons or the dedicated mode for video recording in the camera. Multi Window functionality has been nearly cut in half because Samsung decided to go with the stock Android implementation, and minor features such as the option to put App Pair shortcuts on the home screen aren’t available as well.
