Intuitive and Streamlined User Experience of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge
In addition to a “Beauty Meets Purpose” philosophy for the exterior design of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung provides a more refined user experience that focuses on simplicity and functionality.
The most meaningful change is how easy they are to use. Replacing ambiguous icons with clear text, reducing the need to scroll through lengthy menu options by removing 40% of features and steps, and removing cumbersome bloatware are just some of the ways the new format is intuitive and streamlined. The simple and powerful structure of the new UX was redesigned with the user in mind.
Focusing on just the essentials, the new user interface has a more logical format and a reduced number of unnecessary menu options. It is simplified, stylish, and modern. Users will also experience fewer interruptions of popup alerts and notifications. The powerful processors eliminate lag in responsiveness and every motion is easily detected on the touch screen. This means less wasted time so users can easily get to the information that is important to them.
Every function has been streamlined and apps are simpler and more legible. Layouts have been decluttered with minimal visual elements. Color coding keeps everything organized throughout the interface. Users can make immediate associations within apps with bright color coordination. All phone apps are green, all video apps are purple, and all apps related to contacts are orange.
The Galaxy S6 edge takes visual color coding further, allowing users to assign colors to five favorite contacts. The edge glows the assigned color when contacts call or message, so users can decide quickly if they want to be interrupted. This new function, called People Edge, also lets you quickly swipe your favorite contacts to text or call in 2 easy steps. And by swiping the edge back and forth, you can activate the information ticker to see weather, notifications, and news.
The new UX design also offers customized themes to allow users to personalize their experience even more. Users can customize everything on Galaxy S6 and S6 edge: app icons, keypad designs, and even designs for native apps like Messages and S Planner. In addition, the API has been opened so that third parties and individuals can design their own themes and upload them to the Theme Store. These themes will be available at the Theme Store as Galaxy S6 and S6 edge hit the shelves in markets around the world.
