Android Pie has finally made signature Galaxy devices like note 9, S9 and S8. As you know, Samsung Experience got a great makeover and has been renamed One UI, with significant aesthetic changes in many of its built-in apps.
Especially the Phone App has a completely new layout on the Pie-Based One UI. First, the different tabs have been moved to the bottom of the screen to make it easier to reach. Now you don't have to get up to tap "Keys", "Contacts" or "Places", and instead you can simply press any of the options without having to adjust your grip.
In addition, TouchWiz on Android Pie has suppressed the floating keypad and added it as a new option on the move option tab at the bottom of the screen for a cleaner user interface. This is an ingenious feature of Samsung's part, as it will streamline the user experience as they move from devices like iPhone to Galaxy smartphones.
To add a little vividness to the phone app, Samsung has also sprinkled some color on the Contacts page, and has filled in the letter icon next to each contact (which has not been assigned a photo) with its own unique color combination that can help with the selection on the go . The alphabetical groupings have also been divided into their own boxes for easier sorting.
It is also worth noting that unlike Oreo, the colored icon or image associated with your contact is displayed also in the outgoing, incoming and in-call interface of the telephone app.
As a built-in Samsung application, the Phone app has also received Night Voice handling that comes standard with Android Pie. With the dark mode enabled, the app switches to a beautiful interface consisting of a battery-powered black background with gray and white accents, as shown in the screenshots below.
As much as the improvements that Samsung has made in the Phone app, it's just the tip of the iceberg – there are many features that have also received a little sought after attention on the arrival of Android Pie, so be sure to check back often when we comes to them one by one.
