Bring it on Samsung, I can't wait to theme it up. Samsung UI is killing it. So many features, customizations, and refinements. The best is getting better.

The settings app looks absolutely hideous, the current one looks so much better than this crap.

Definitely looks better. I hope that it will also be implemented on a tablet.

Dont worry. We old device users would get it by 2020.

Looks like ios-ish. Those buttons look like Xiaomi. And I think there are too many rounded card's. But since I'm always interested in software design changes it's good!

For the next experience UI updates, I think samsung should give more power to the users by letting people uninstall apps they don't want to use. If they are worried about non-techie people accidentally crashing their phones, placing the uninstall option exclusive in the developer mode should be a good start.

I bought note 9 I used to think I will have to live with the pre installed apps....but when setting up note 9......I got option to install the Samsung apps (which I didn't) and was able to uninstall 6 google apps i'd never use.....that was really unexpected

I love the way Companies scare each others and put effort into the competition. Instead of mocking each other products.

Overall positive first impression but I'm not liking how huge those card corner radii are. Especially happy to see the update coming sooner rather than later though!

I like the fact you can have a night theme. One of the first things I did with my S9 was to download an almost all black theme.
