Samsung Experience: the interface formerly known as TouchWiz

Ah TouchWiz, where will we be without you? In a much better-looking place, that’s where. Samsung seems to have officially hung TouchWiz out to dry in the latest Nougat beta for the Galaxy S7. The software info page on that update now lists a Samsung Experience version number, reflecting the new refined UI that borrows heavily from the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7.

This is Nougat on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

We’ve reached out to Samsung to see if Samsung Experience is a Nougat-only interface update or if it might also be making its way to other Galaxy devices not expected to make the jump to Android 7.0. Don’t count on it, but we’ll update this post with any further details.

Admittedly, TouchWiz has not been something Samsung has talked much about in years, with the last official mention of it being back on the Galaxy S2. But the name has stuck around around as the appellation of choice for Samsung’s UI, all throughout its refinement phase starting with the Galaxy S6 up to the launch interface for the Galaxy S7 family.

In many ways TouchWiz hasn’t been TouchWiz for years, so changing the name officially makes a lot of sense. The Grace UX found on the Galaxy Note 7 was too good to up in flames with that device, so it’s great to see Samsung pushing it out for next-in-line devices. The new Grace UX/Samsung Experience is a lot more streamlined and clean, with loads of white and light blue accents.

The new refined interface sits a lot better with Samsung’s recent move to highly polished and brazenly design-oriented devices. Samsung’s design language has matured in recent years and its software tastes have matured with it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better looking Samsung and interface combo than the S7 Edge with Samsung Experience. Except perhaps, for the Galaxy Note 7, may she rest in peace.

What are your thoughts on the new Samsung UI? Do you hope to get it on your Galaxy, even if you won’t get Nougat?

Samsung Experience

Software overlay by Samsung Electronics

Samsung Experience (stylized as SɅMSUNG Experience) was a software overlay for the Android "launcher" by Samsung for its Galaxy devices running Android Nougat and Android Oreo. It was introduced in late 2016 on a beta build based on Android Nougat for the Galaxy S7, succeeding TouchWiz.[1] It has been succeeded by One UI based on Android Pie and later versions.


Main article: TouchWiz

TouchWiz was the former name Samsung used for its UI and icons. It was originally released on June 4, 2010, for the Galaxy S smartphone. Reviewers had criticized Samsung for including too many features and bloat, especially in the Galaxy S4, which included what many users called a Samsung "feature creep".[2] In the following years, though, Samsung had incrementally removed the bloatware and extra features, until TouchWiz was no longer recognized as TouchWiz, leading them to rename it.[3]


Home screen[edit]

Samsung Experience makes several changes to Android's default homescreen. The apps icon is on the bottom right of the screen instead of the bottom middle, the Google Now search bar is just below the middle of the screen instead of at the top, and there is a weather widget (provided by The Weather Channel or AccuWeather in select countries or devices) at the top right corner of the screen. In addition, a user can edit the apps grid layout.[4]

Edge UX[edit]

The "Edge" (curved glass at the edge of the screen) was originally introduced in the Galaxy Note Edge, and popularized with the Galaxy S6 Edge.


The tasks edge gives users a shortcut to commonly utilized tasks, such as making a phone call to a certain contact, setting a timer, and creating an event in S Planner. It is an assortment of icons (e.g. contact pictures [with phone, messaging, or mail icons], an app icon with a plus symbol on its bottom right corner, or a photo [from your library] masked in the shape of a circle [with the gallery icon on the bottom right corner]) on the right of the screen.[5] The people edge allows the user to add 5 different contacts to display on the screen, for quick access to functions such as calling, texting, and emailing. It displays the contact's name and photo.[5] The apps edge displays ten of a user's most frequently used apps, with five in two columns. A user can also add a complete folder to the screen.[5]

Edge panels[edit]

Yahoo! sports, finance, and news are panels that are included with the phone.[5] A user can download extra panels for ease of use, such as an RSS reader, Twitter trends, and news from CNN.[6]

Quick tools[edit]

With quick tools, the Edge transforms into a ruler, compass, or flashlight.[5]

Edge feeds[edit]

When a user swipes the edge of the screen and the screen is off, the edge display turns on and displays missed calls, the current time, weather, and news.[7]

Grace UX[edit]

First released with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 for Android Marshmallow, the Grace UX was named after the device's codename, and eventually made its way to older devices, including the Galaxy Note 5 through an update (Korea and eventually to other countries), and the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge through the official Android Nougat update. The Grace UX features a cleaner, flatter look to iconography and extensive use of white space. TouchWiz Grace UX devices also benefit from the Secure Folder functionality, which enables users to keep certain data, and even apps, behind a secure password.

In addition, for most countries, all the languages that were absent from previous versions (Android Marshmallow or earlier) will be available in this release, starting with the Galaxy Tab S3.

Always-on display[edit]

Main article: Always on Display

The always-on display on the Galaxy S7 Edge, displaying the time and the calendar.

Most of Samsung's mobile devices have AMOLED displays and the screen is left mostly black when the always-on display is active; only illuminated pixels require power since they are LEDs. The screen will display the current time, the calendar, or a selected image. There are different styles for each option (the clock has 7 styles, the calendar has 2 styles, and the image has 3 styles).[8]Later on, additional functionality was added to turn on the always-on display feature either in a scheduled manner, or keep it always on. The always-on display also adjusts its brightness as per the ambient light brightness automatically.

The Always-on Display is available on Galaxy A series (2017 & 2018), Galaxy S7/S7 edge, Galaxy S8/S8+, Galaxy S9/S9+, Galaxy J7 (2017)/J7 Pro/J7+ (or C7 2017), Galaxy C5/C7/C9 Pro and Galaxy Note 7/FE/8/9 devices only.

File Manager[edit]

Samsung includes a file manager with its Galaxy phones, unlike stock Android.[9]

Game Launcher[edit]

Any game that a user downloads is combined into a single folder. In that folder, one can optimize frame rate and resolution.[10] It includes Game Tools, a button that appears when a user is playing a game. When tapped, it can mute notifications, turn off the capacitive keys, minimize the game, screenshot, and record gameplay.[10]


Bixby is an assistant that launched with the Samsung Galaxy S8. It replaces S Voice on Samsung phones and has three parts, including Bixby Voice, Bixby Vision and Bixby Home. Bixby Voice can be triggered by saying "Hey Bixby" or pressing and holding the button located below the volume rocker, dubbed the Bixby Button. Bixby Vision is built into the camera app and can "see" what one can see as it is essentially an augmented reality camera that can identify objects in real time, search for them on various services, and offer the user to purchase them if available. Bixby is also able to translate text, read QR codes and recognize landmarks.[11]Bixby Home can be found by swiping to the right on the home screen. It is a vertically scrolling list of information that Bixby can interact with, for example, weather, fitness activity, and buttons for controlling their smart home gadgets.[11]


Bixby can do tasks related to a single keyword. For example, a simple "Good Night" can request the device to turn to silent mode and turn on the Night Mode display.

S Pen[edit]

(exclusive to the Galaxy Note and Tab series)

  • Air Command: A collection of shortcuts that appear when the S Pen is taken out.
  • Smart Select: Create custom GIFs (also available on Galaxy S8/+ and S9/+ after 7.0 Nougat update)

That is, divorced for a couple of years. Somehow the first marriage did not work out. Leaving behind sadness and a son of ten years, who lived with his ex.

On the way home, I thought of many options. For how to build a conversation with my sister, whom I and a dozen other guys fucked a couple of hours ago. I imagined meeting her right on the doorstep and collapsing with the demand to explain what it was like today. I imagined how we calmly talk with her about how she came to life like this, and how, in general, now we can continue to live together.

I imagined how she begs me not to tell anyone about what happened, and we are solving this issue.
