In this next segment we will be talking about the various features of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 TouchWiz available to everybody that owns a S8 smartphone. TouchWiz has come a long way over the years, and there’s no denying that it’s still one of the most featured packed Android interfaces available today.
Below, we take a close look at the good, bad, and the ugly of the new TouchWiz interface which will come standard in all variants of the S8 including the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Edge, and the larger Galaxy S8 Edge Plus.
Galaxy S8 TouchWiz Interface
All of the Samsung Galaxy S8 TouchWiz features are laid throughout the interface that Samsung has provided. Whilst TouchWiz has adopted inspiration from stock Android that has stuck since the introduction of Material Design, there’s still a lot about the interface that’s different.
The TouchWiz interface is now very colorful and easy going on the eyes. Its bright menus and app icons make it an incredibly bright and friendly environment to involve yourself in every day, and there’s never a single area of the interface that lacks color.
Exclusive Utility Features
The most recent changes to TouchWiz have been designed to make the Android UI even easier to use than ever before. There are plenty of smart S8 TouchWiz features that make navigating apps including some of the many Samsung exclusives and menus much easier than stock Android.
Sometimes simplicity is best, but with the tap of a finger in many of Samsung’s apps you can turn a simple interface into one that is packed with features and functionality. Take the camera app for example – with the camera in simple mode, you can take photos simply by tapping the capture button which will only enhance the amazing camera quality.
There are a few options available, but they are limited to filtering and very basic image balancing functions. If you go into ‘Pro’ mode, you are suddenly given access to a huge variety of different utilities. This kind of approach is something that Samsung has been working on for the entirety of the TouchWiz operating system. On the surface, everything is straightforward, but a bit of extra work will always lead to additional utilities and finer control of different features.
It’s Good, But not the Clear Cut Winner
Thanks to the huge variety of Samsung Galaxy S8 TouchWiz features and the well-designed interface, there’s no doubt that TouchWiz is a great experience. With that being said, it’s not the definite winner in the Android space. There are going to be so many other great Android interfaces in 2017, and at this point the true winner is going to vary from person to person based on personal preferences.
