There are several new features that are being included in One UI 2.0. Let’s see what is being incorporated, what can people who have a Samsung that will update to Android 10 enjoy?
One UI 2.0 What’s New: New full-screen gestures and better one-handed use
Until now, Samsung’s full-screen gestures worked in much the same way as the classic navigation buttons. You had to swipe up from where the navigation button would normally be.
Now we have a gesture system much more similar to what we can find in those of other manufacturers, which are more adapted to the full-screen navigation of today’s phones with large screens.
From the center by sliding up we will return to the main screen. With the same gesture but keeping the finger pressed in the middle we will access multitasking. While to pull back or forward we will have to do it by sliding from the edges of the screen
Obviously this is intended to be easier to use with one hand, something in which One UI has a great importance, and that they have also improved in version 2.0.
In this video from Phone Arena you can see how they work.
Improved digital well-being and battery management
If you are one of those who likes to control how much time you spend on your mobile, see your battery consumption, screen hours, etc. and you have a Samsung, you are in luck. With One UI 2.0 it greatly improves the ease you will have to see it. When entering Digital Wellbeing you will see an interface that gives you certain facilities.
You can quickly see how long you have been and which apps you have spent that time on. You will also be able to see the exact time you have spent in that app, before you saw a line as a graph that told you what you spent more time on, but you did not see the exact number of minutes.
The same goes for the battery. The battery graph has been improved to make it easier to view.
System apps improved
The system apps have been improved. Apps such as the Samsung Internet, contacts, calendar, reminders, file explorer or calculator have received improvements. All to make it much easier to navigate through all of them.
One UI 2.0 design
What is a new version with no design changes? This time the biggest change is found in the notifications, which reduce their size to access all of them with the same ease but with a smaller occupied size.
Also the design of the camera app has changed, and has included AR Doodle (Samsung’s feature that allows you to draw 3D images on a photo) in the camera itself. Something very useful to let your creativity fly.
Android Auto pre-installed. Android Beam removed
Now Android Auto will come pre-installed on Android 10 with One UI. Something very useful, since Google is making an effort to improve the service, and having it from the moment you have your mobile is useful to know what possibilities you have if you have a compatible car.
On the other hand, what Android 10 gives you, Android 10 takes away from you. Android Beam has been removed. Android Beam was the ability to send files via NFC that Android offered.
Screen recording with selfie camera
If you want to start uploading your gameplays to YouTube or streaming on Twitch and you don’t have much knowledge, Samsung makes it easy for you. Now you can record the screen of your phone while recording yourself with the selfie camera. Comfortable, right?
These are some of the novelties that we will see in Samsung phones with Android 10. What do you find most interesting?
