Except for more affordable phones like the Galaxy A5 (2017) or the Galaxy A7 (2017), when we talk about the interface of a relatively recent Samsung phone we can no longer refer to it as TouchWiz, but as Samsung Experience. TouchWiz, at least in regards to the high-end mobile phones of this South Korean manufacturer, has gone down in history.
The customization layer of the Galaxy S8 is called Samsung Experience, and the version of the phone that we have been able to test was installed in version 8.1 based on Android 7.0 Nougat. It is an interface that, as you can see for yourselves in the captures that we attach above and below this paragraph, takes care of the small details, and does so by offering that uniform design that we like so much to those who are not afraid to leave pure mobile interface like Google Pixel or Moto Z. We can get a high advantage from the modish upcoming Galaxy S9, the next G series smartphone of Samsung Company, releasing next year. The advantage in the form of a high tensile strength, smooth running, speedily boost performance – All because of the latest interface of Galaxy S9: The Android 8.0.
Of all the peculiarities that this S8 interface has, in this analysis of the Samsung Galaxy S8 the one that caught my attention is the possibility to choose which Samsung applications we want to install during the initial configuration of the phone. The mobile offers us the possibility of not installing any of the manufacturer’s applications (we can save up to nine additional applications installed), leaving only the Google apps and some additional service. Hope, in upcoming Galaxy S9, the phone could be able to give us the advantage of all those applications which were left to be installed in the previous flagship.
More about Galaxy S8 interface, what we cannot deliver is pre-installed applications from Microsoft (come to Four: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneDrive) of the app on Facebook and basic applications of the company. Although none of them can be uninstalled, we do have the option to disable them, so that at least they do not appear in the applications drawer. This way you can delete pre-installed applications on your mobile.
Personally, I have to admit that both during the S8 + review and during this analysis of Samsung Galaxy S8 I have been using this service a lot to discover news of technology that otherwise would not have come to read. Such an amazing feature Samsung has brought to the world, even Galaxy S9 would be also blessed with such a useful feature.
Secure Folder, the free Samsung app to encrypt files
To close this section, I only have to rescue a complaint I already made at the time of publishing the analysis of the older brother of this Samsung phone. The interface has too many settings, and there are so many customization options that it is likely that many users will never discover the potential of this terminal because many of the settings that improve the user experience first must be activated manually. Wish the next upcoming legend smartphone of Samsung Galaxy S9 could solve such issues and make us happy.
