Samsung launches some of the best Android phones every year, but the software used in these phones is not the same level of hardware. As you probably know, the user interface of Samsung phones is called OneUI, and it can be said that it is the most important weakness of the company's phones. First of all, we have to say that this is a matter of great taste. This means that you may not have any problems with the software of these phones. But even if you like OneUI, you probably can not hide some of its problems and weaknesses.
Bixby is a very strange product. On the One hand, this service seems to be very important for Samsung, but on the other hand, the company acts as if Bixby does not exist at all. Unfortunately, Galaxy phones are One of the areas in which Bixby has a large presence. If you are not familiar with Bixby, in short, it is a virtual assistant like Google Assistant and Siri. However, in terms of quality and features, it does not reach Google Assistant at all. It should be noted that all Samsung phones also use Google Assistant due to the use of Android.
This is the most annoying thing about Bixby; There is no logical reason for it to be present in different phones. Although Samsung has spent a lot of money to develop this service, sooner or later it will have to accept failure and not disrupt the user experience by leaving it out of its handsets.
In the previous section, we mentioned that Samsung phones, despite using Google Assistant, Bixby Voice Assistant is also used. But this problem goes beyond Bixby. When you buy a Samsung phone, you will encounter a lot of duplicate apps. Specifically, Samsung has developed a number of applications that have also been developed by Google, and you are practically dealing with two similar applications on your phone for a specific function. You can see the names of some of these duplicate apps below:
You can delete some of these apps, such as Google Calendar, but this is not possible for Samsung apps. So if you use Google Apps, you have no choice but to tolerate the Samsung version of them. In the case of calendars, too, this approach can lead to notifications from two separate apps.
Because of the insistence that this trend continue, a number of Samsung apps that are really great will not be noticed by many users. For example, we can mention Samsung Internet and Samsung Health applications, which have a lot to say but are not very common among many unnecessary duplicate applications.
Excessive number of software features Samsung
phones is the sheer number of software features. . Although
some of these features are really useful, they are more than
expected. As a result, even many techies are unaware of the large
number of these features, and certainly the situation for ordinary
users is worse.
Samsung should be a little stricter with its handset software. The company wants to do a lot with the OneUI interface. The fact that OneUI uses a special design language is a good thing, but the multiplicity of features and things like dual apps are really unnecessary. They are Samsung products, not Google. But surely the hardware used for these phones and of course the special design of OneUI alone can convey this message. What do you think about this?
