Before One UI Samsung has its Samsung Experience UI and TouchWiz(old flagships and low end phones), were baking up S series 😀 flagships. Samsung Experience UI was good until marshmallow 6.0 but later in Samsung S6 Edge and S7 until S9, was not enough attractive.
One UI 1.0 - completely redesigned and impressive UI.
One UI 2.0 - little improvement in design
One UI 3.0 - plausible. Notification panel and lockscreen are retouched.
Still needs improvements
Look at vivo
Look at EUMI - Huawei
Look at Xiaomi
All above devices are inspired iPhone in design aspects. In Samsung UI 3.0 lockscreen pin password screen is inspired by apple io. 🍎
What I mean to say
IPhone 4s has apple ios 9.0, and current version is 14 or 15. IPhone 6 lost its support from apple 🍎 one year ago.
iOS 9.0 , apple iPhone 4s is still better than highend flagships with respect to software. I am not making final verdict, that apple is better, Samsung is best, vivo is rocking, xiami is badass, or realme is known by vloggers. This is not verdict.
Should we wait ✋ for next update 🤔 one UI 4.0 . Samsung is improving 👌 2 is better , 3 is better than 2.
This is not about designers. This is not a fault. This is a design philosophy 👌. How big techs work with long-term strategic philosophy 👏.
If you like my feedback and review than wait for next. I will talk 👄 about hardware.
