Samsung's Android 10 update is called One UI 2 because it's the continuation of last year's One IU supported by Android 9. After the update for early 2019 finally overcomes the stigma of TouchWiz, it is important that Samsung publishes an equally effective update for 2020.
This update will be released shortly for the Galaxy S9, Note 9, Galaxy S10, and Note 10. Other devices may be available in the future, and the Galaxy S11 will ship with this firmware. Suffice to say that this is an important update. So let's take a look at the news.
. 1 Better Screen Capture
Samsung has introduced a special screen recorder for Note 1
Compared to a UI, the Quick Settings area on a UI displays 2 more Quick-Fix tiles, when fully expanded (16 vs. 12) are now left-aligned and much smaller.
At the bottom of One UI 2's quick settings are two new buttons: Media and Devices. These allow you to access music and videos faster, along with external devices connected to your Galaxy. Of course, you can hide the buttons when you do not need them by disabling "Show Media and Devices" in the new Quick Menu Layout menu.
If your lock screen has previously displayed only notification icons, tapping a warning icon on the lock screen not only displays the advanced notification but also (senselessly) the Quick Settings panel. With One UI 2, performing the same action no longer calls the quick settings, but only displays your warnings.
The lock screen has been slightly updated in One UI 2, with emphasis on legibility across different backgrounds. As you can see in the following pictures, dark and light backgrounds are automatically detected and the text and symbol colors are set to either light or dark for better visibility.
Notifications have been divided into two categories in One UI 2. All notifications you have muted fall under the Silent Notification section. The new section displays regular notifications such as incoming text, missed calls, and other app notifications.
One of the convenient features of the UI has been the ability to display incoming calls as a pop-up card to reduce distractions while performing other actions on your Galaxy, such as: B. chat or surf the Internet. A UI 2 further extends this feature and allows you to tailor the size to your needs. You can do this on the "Call display when using apps" page in the Phone app settings.
The search function in Samsung Internet is a handy way to search for specific words on a page, although accessing the arrows to switch between the results was a bit cumbersome due to their location. This has been fixed in One UI 2, where the arrows in the lower right corner of the screen have been moved for much easier access.
In addition to the standard tabbed tabs, One UI 2 now allows you to set open tabs that will be displayed as smaller banners in Samsung Internet as a vertical list. You can easily set "Map View" or "List View" by clicking the three-dot menu button at the top right of the "Tabs" page and selecting one of the two options in the menu bar.
A UI 2 has streamlined the camera app. Compared to a user interface, the new camera interface has far fewer controls and hides the Pro, Panorama, Food, Night, Super Slo-Mo, Slow Motion, and Hyperlapse modes. along with "Bixby Vision" and "AR Emoji" in the "More" section.
However, if you frequently use one of the hidden camera modes, you can easily add it back to the main window by long-pressing on the desired camera mode and dragging it to the tab bar below. You can also do the reverse to hide "Live Focus" and "Live Focus Video," but not "Photo" and "Video."
The option to retrieve photos or videos from the Gallery or take new photos with the Camera in One The Messages app in the UI was quite hidden. You had to tap the " + " button in the text box and select your media app from there. This has been fixed on One UI 2 – both in the gallery and in the camera now has its own buttons for immediate access.
Take a new picture or The video in Samsung Messages was a bit confused on a user interface because the camera viewfinder only opened in the lower half of the screen and you had to swipe up to see it completely. Fortunately, this has been fixed on One UI 2, and you can now launch the camera app with the appropriate camera key.
On a UI 2, the "Roaming Clock" option, which allows you to view multiple time zones, is now displayed as a vertical list. This makes the feature more compact and gives you more room to add more time zones and easily compare times thanks to their vertical orientation.
Setting options for various items, such as timer or stopwatch, meant navigating to different tabs in the Clock app on a UI. This has been fixed in One UI 2, as all settings have been simplified and summarized in a single menu for an optimized experience.
Jumping to or back to a specific month or year in the calendar app was in One UI 2 thanks to the new menu prompt in which the months coincide with the year listed above, greatly simplified. All you have to do now is to swipe the top of the map to see the year you want. Just tap the desired month to open the calendar immediately.
The calculator app has been redesigned into One UI 2 and now has rounded buttons to bring it closer to the rest of the system in terms of design. In addition, the app has a dedicated scientific calculator and a redesigned "Unit Converter" that eliminates the popup menu, so you can quickly pick up between different units without having to return to the main calculator interface.
The permissions prompt was not loved by One UI and is completely inappropriate with the rest of the galaxy system. A UI 2 has finally fixed this and not only redesigned the prompt to merge it with the rest of the UI, but also displayed it at the bottom of the screen.
Site permission prompts now have a third option next to Allow and Deny: The ability to allow access only while using the app in question. However, this is more of an Android 10 feature than a One UI 2 feature.
