Upgraded One UI for Android Pie

One UI brings you Android Pie, with exciting new features and a whole new look and feel based on feedback from users in Samsung and Google.  We recommend that you back up your important data to keep it safe before the upgrade.  Some apps, including Calculator, Samsung Internet, Samsung Health, Samsung Notes, Samsung Members, and Samsung Pay need to be updated individually after you update your OS.

 

Here's what's new:

One UI

  • Content, settings, and other information have been reorganized to keep you focused on the task at hand.
  • Interactive elements have been moved to the bottom of the screen so they're always within reach.
  • New designs and features such as Night mode helps keep your eyes comfortable.

Notifications

  • You can reply to messages directly in the notification panel.
  • Image thumbnails are included in message notifications.
  • In an app's notification settings, tap the switch once to turn on or off all the notifications in a category.

Samsung Keyboard

  • New Unicode 11.0 emojis are available.
  • New adaptive theme changes your keyboard look based on the colors of the surrounding app.
  • A floating keyboard is available in all apps and has a new size and transparency settings.
  • You can set a customer touch and hold delays.

Device Care (formerly Device maintenance)

  • Performance modes are streamlined and integrated into power saving modes.
  • The Edge panel for device maintenance is discontinued.

Always On Display

  • New clock styles have been added, including the option to show a calendar with your schedule.
  • Charging information has been added to let you know how much time is remaining until fully charged.
  • You can show Always On Display whenever the screen is off, or you can set it to show for 30 seconds when you tap the screen.

Settings

  • Menus have been reorganized to make settings easier to find.

Samsung DeX

  • Continue using your phone while DeX is being displayed on a monitor or TV.
  • Use Samsung DeX with supported HDMI adapters.  No need for a DeX Station.

Bixby

  • Bixby is all new, with a range of improvements and new features.
  • Swipe left from the main Bixby screen to explore the latest features and supported apps.
  • You can control the Bixby key in settings to decide what happens when you press or double press.

Phone

  • You can now sort your call history by incoming and outgoing calls.
  • Your call history can include up to 2000 entries (increased from 500 entries).

Contacts

  • The new drawer menu makes it easier to manage contacts from various accounts.

Camera

  • The new Scene optimizer automatically enhances the camera's color settings to fit the scene.

Gallery

  • Photo Editor Pro's editing tools have been added to Gallery, so you can make all your edits and touchups without leaving the app.

My Files

  • The new storage analysis tool has been added to help you monitor your storage usage and save space.
  • You can now show or hide items on the My Files Home screen.

Samsung Health

  • Your daily step count will be shown in the notification panel.  To hide it, press and hold the notification, then turn off Current steps.

Other improvements and changes

  • Turn on the screen automatically whenever you pick up your phone using the Lift to wake feature.
  • Access Kids Home on the quick panel.
  • Call stickers have been discontinued.
  • HEIF images are now supported.

Why is that?  I paid good money for this phone and I have been Sprint customer since the 90s. This does not make since to me. AT&T I believe does offer this to Unlocked devices.

The simple answer is it is not a carrier branded device with carrier branded software.  Unlocked devices will be VoLTE capable in the future, just not now as well as other devices.

On a related note, I performed a system update to Android Pie on 04/29/19 and since then my apps don't update properly. I have performed the ##72786# system reset as well as the partition cache wipe. I have been attempting to get a 4.9MB app update to download and have been waiting for, as I write this, approximately 18 minutes with no progress whatsoever. Any additional advice?

over the mobile network or using wifi?

 

 

the Google play store itself might not be updated on your phone to be compatible with Pie..so it might be waiting for some kind of kick start to get it through then the app updates can get their thing on..'

 

 

mainly making a guess on my side.

might have to contact Samsung directly to figure out how to shut it off then. if its only with texts then its gotta be something in the texting app itself..or the texting app is in need of an update as well if they made changes.

no worries...so far you are the only person to bring this up on the site here that i have found..however it doesnt mean you are the only one possibly running into this..many people jump right over to the Samsung site when they run into issues that are more device related..so there is a chance you will find someone with a like issue after this update over there.
