Are you excited for Samsung's new 'One UI' Android interface?

Yesterday's Samsung Developer Conference was chock-full of big announcements, one of which was a first look at Samsung's new custom interface for Android. It's called One UI, and it'll officially be available this coming January with a beta kicking things off later in the month.

One UI aims to make Samsung's interface simpler, easier-to-use, and more visually appealing.

Here's what the Android Central forum community has to say about it so far.

As someone whose first move on a Samsung is usually to replace Touch Wiz with Nova, it depends on the new UI. If it's up to Samsung's (seeming) current standards, it won't make any difference to me - Nova will still get installed.


When TouchWiz existed, I replaced it with Nova Launcher. With Samsung Experience, I don't feel the need. I still set up Nova and I might change over to it at times, but it's not needed. I'm liking what they are doing with One UI as well. Samsung seems to be listening to consumers and developers.


Never needed Nova since they upgraded TouchWiz to Samsung Experience. I'm liking the OneUI and it looks like Samsung will release it with Pie so I'm hoping it won't be a huge laggy mess out the gate.


I'm running the leak pie build on my note 9 and so far good , it's faster animation then oreo and like the gestures


What about you? Are you excited for One UI?
