Google Play Reviews

  1. Be Kix-avatar

    The latest update on my Galaxy A6 caused this app to completely malfunction. I keep getting an error that says, "One UI Home keeps stopping." I have had At&t troubleshoot it...as well as Samsung. The only way I can access my apps is when I go through Settings and into applications. Its a pain! I have no home screen capabilities now bc of this worthless app that I can't even uninstall....

  2. Samuel Jose-avatar

    apk I'm really disappointed with the rotation lag. I turned off the auto rotation from one ui settings but when ever I switch from landscape oriented games or applications to one ui home, the home will be in landscape orientation and it will take 2 seconds to turn back to portrait. And it happens when ever I switch the recent applications. The UI would feel more smoother and snappy, if all the applications opens in the same orientation as it was left in the background. Try to fix this rotation lag.

  3. Mikey Destito-avatar

    apk download After doing research online on how to determine WHY my phone is experiencing all these random, annoying pop-up ads (this thru the app store) it seems to be becuz of this app. And after reading a lot of other comments, I'm almost sure of it now. This is a huge disappoint and very frustrating. It has interrupted many situations (i.e. texting, video, downloads, etc.) and has me worried whether it can get worse. It needs to be fixed or made to be uninstalled. 😠

  4. Patricia Cook-avatar

    5.1.68 When you set this up according to the steps on a Samsung device it works perfectly and looks great when you add one of the wallpapers offered. Many are free if you own a Samsung phone or tablet. I have tried several of the new features and find them all easy to use. I especially like the ones where things are off the screen (hidden), toolbar, unused apps, security info. Great job Dev team! Your Boss in my book.

  5. Deyanna Chavez-avatar

    download I think it's this stupid app that automatically puts my do not disturb on. I tried so many things to get it to stop automatically turning on. I even turned it on and changed settings from 3am-4am and it still turns on exactly at 10 and I have to manually fix it because it will switch about 4 more times on me. I click on details and this stupid app name shows up.

  6. Jen Newman-avatar

    apk for lollipop Totally sucks! Draining my battery! Why does it need to run in the background so much? Why does it keep draining my battery so much? What's really going on!? Force-fed! Not even worth the trouble considering switching to LG! They need to get this fixed immediately because I will not update this app until they do I wish I could uninstall it!

  7. Jim Bonner-avatar

    apkpure I purchased an unlocked A50 in January, it came with One UI 2.0 installed. I have never had a problem. It has never crashed, operation is smooth, and I've never seen an ad, not once. The themes are great (there are always exceptions of course), and reasonably priced. All in all, this is a good, functional, stable, great looking, and moderately customizable UI. I agree with some reviews in that, more customization would definitely be an improvement. But it's still worthy of 5 stars!

    descargar Dear Samsung, This app shows that it was last updated on the 31 Dec of 2008 which means it's a side-load. We have taken our cell phone to Samsung support in Kista to get Firmware flashed but we keep getting hacked through the 4G Network while browsing the internet safely. I suggest you investigate your situation in terms of insider threats because it is really suspicious that the firmware and apps can get updated to fake ones without user interface input. Also I keep contacting you no reply




    No successfully always failure not working OUT of our missing setting for our websites/mobiles something else who someone took over from us all apps reverse them got it from mine mibile not show none info or notifications nothing but they got my Guard got it from them block me not get it nothing new that suppose me and my guard only not let them stome all of the files and accounts ID that where did they stole our profile personal information without any reason due error "T mobile" not ours .

  10. Jim Campbell-avatar

    Crashes. Can't use phone (J3). I depend on this phone for a lot of stuff, and to leave me without access in this time of pandemics is hell to pay. I am 70 yrs old, so the risk factor is enhanced by this awful snag of Samsungs. The crashing is not due to my doing something out of the ordinary recently. I just started it - or tried to - this morning ... and there it was: "One UI Home keeps stopping ... do this do that"; all to no avail. And no help from Samsung!!!

  11. Lynn Valentine-avatar

    This app was installed when my phone was updated. It randomly has a male voice that comes over and says a new station alert has arrived. It happens all hours of the day-and-night. I cannot get it to stop and I cannot uninstall or disable this app. Definitely give it A10 thumbs down. 👎👎👎

  12. Ari-avatar

    You guys need to realize you've been hacked and your phone is compromised. It is possible for spyware and exploits to piggyback onto your phone via legit android updates. They are collecting our passwords, financial data, images and other personal files, turning on our cameras remotely and connecting to our phones with their own computer/phone giving them free reign over our digital, financial, private lives. Neighbors can also be responsible. They hack your router, your network, your main PC...

  13. Tim Baillie-avatar

    This app (and Galaxy Themes) forced itself to become my default launcher. Restoring my phone's back up from Samsung Cloud did nothing to bring back my original defaults, as an auto-update had occurred before I tried to restore. The Sam apps dispersed 466 of my well organized and curated apps and their designated folders for my business. Sam makes the best droid phone's, but I wish there was not so many Sam apps that impose themselves and can't be deleted. I have data strangled all my Sam apps.

  14. Danny Lim-avatar

    Version features for "Swipe down for notification panel" anywhere on the home screen (I know it won't work on app screen don't ask me silly questions) to pull down the notification drawer not working. The notification drawer won't come down, so you need to reach for the top of the screen to pull down the notification..... Zzz Please fix it, very annoying on reach to the top of the phone for notification on this big phone.

  15. Debbie Newhouse-avatar

    Debbie Newhouse


    Horrible!! It drains the battery like crazy! And once you get it you cant uninstall it or disable it!! My phone is only a couple of months old and I'm about to get another one just to try to get rid of the terrible app!! I've rest my phone and tried everything possible to get rid of it. Please stay away get any other launcher but this one.

  16. Barry Belair-avatar

    The fingerprint sensor on the a71 is horrible, at least 20 times trying to use that security feature, won't read my print past 20%. Dont blame my fingers either, I just upgraded from the a50 and it worked great! Why can't I uninstall Netflix from my phone? Why do companies like you never reply to these reviews?, is it because you're criminals and know it?

  17. Xander Liow-avatar

    Horrible. There are pop-ups in EVERY app I go. Everytime I want to watch anime, I can't watch one episode without having it play random ads over and over. The worst thing is that there is NO way to uninstall or disable it. Usually after an ad appears, I come to the play store to see that THIS app is the last recent one to be used. Please fix this or I'll be going to Huawei.

  18. Scott Spicer-avatar

    I have had a random app (Hexa Jigsaw) I have never seen before added to my phone but doesn't come up anywhere saying it's installed except on the apps Playstore page. And while looking at the apps I've most recently used it comes up as this app every time. My phone has done this twice in the past week as of 05/09/2020 and I dont know why or how or why but I very much would like this to stop.

  19. Allison K-avatar

    STILL HAPPENING. Pop up ads on home screen. Why are they suddenly appearing on my phone out of nowhere? For doubters, the ads appear without any other apps open or can open over an app already being used. I just got two ads for an IQ game and a "word stacks" game. I haven't installed anything new in months. I checked my recently used apps and Samsung One UI was used moments ago, while my email (listed at #2) had been opened over 45 minutes ago. I think these ads came with the late Feb. update.

  20. Msstma-avatar

    My phone kept taking screenshots by itself, yet no pics showed up anywhere. I found an article that said go to the playstore, your apps, last used. It shows this app everytime as last used every time I see the blip flash on my screen. I have camera turned off from its permissions yet it still does. Samsung makes this things to spy on us. I can't disable this app.

  21. Dune Drifter-avatar

    What is it? - Unnecessary bloatware with ads. What does it do? - Collects your Information under the pretense of improving your experience, displays ads, removes features given free by LG then tries to sell you a poorly written version of it. What I have done? - Fully removed from my phone. Why? - To increase security, battery life, ram usage, storage usage, unnecessary updates and restore my peace of mind.

  22. luke pahila-avatar

    Samsung One UI 2 update with its features are totally relevant to what a person needs and has a smoother GUI. But the update for one after it finished, #1 logged me out of my Google accounts. Had to change pass since I just save it on my phone. #2 Installs apps I didn't download. #3 My apps crapped out, even the lock screen in which I cannot unlock it. Up to the point where I cannot even reboot or power down. A not so perfect update, don't know if Samsung wants to fix this or not.

  23. Mark Helps-avatar

    One star for One UI. Why? Because when you use the Navigation Bar/Buttons (instead of the full screen gestures) you cannot hide the Navigation Bar at the bottom of the Home Screen, unlike in the past when you could just tap a little dot and the Navigation Bar would disappear, and when you swiped up it would reappear. Removing that slick feature was a step backward.

  24. Deven T-avatar

    1 star so devs can see - Everything is great on this new 2.1 update! However, the keyboard doesn't have a personal dictionary anymore, and even though I type words out (like suck and sheesh) and click the ✔, the word isn't added? I have to manually type out words i use everyday and it's a major inconvenience. The only solution seems to be to install a new keyboard, but i shouldn't have/ don't want to do that. Please bring personal dictionary back and I'll give 5 stars! Promise 🤞🏻

  25. Matt Merrick-avatar

    I would use this as my default launcher were it not for how godawful the UI is in landscape. There is a convention to how app icons and labels are handled in landscape, that this app throws out the window entirely. No one asked for tiny icons with large horizontal name tags taking up an inordinate amount of space. There is plenty of room for uniqueness in design without being difficult and atypical for the sake of being difficult and atypical.

  26. Sandy-avatar

    HORRIBLE!!! This app went completely haywire and would not allow me to access anything on my phone, it was acting like a virus. It forced me to do a factory reset and I lost a lot of important information. I'm only putting one star Only because I can't post this unless I click on one. It's not worth any stars

  27. Bernice Rosky-avatar

    In the last 3 days my phone has been acting up and freezing and cant get either network or internet. And I cant clean out my apps I went in anymore. What's been going on? I have a Samsung Galaxy j7 crown. I never had this much problem with any of my galaxy phones and I have 3.

  28. Donald Howey-avatar

    Strong opponent of Samsung and the increasingly common practice of loading up 30-50% of the phone space with unneeded, unremovable, bloatware and weak, knockoff versions of Google apps. This though, is simply the frontend wrapper Samsung uses on Android. As for those complaining about ads and popups, the reasons are possibly based on your poor choices. When you buy a Samsung A/J, commonly the Service Provider supplement the low cost by preinstalling Adware. Maybe something else you installed

  29. Daniel Diaz-avatar

    A recent update from this or some other Samsung related app is making the gesture navigation bar on my Note 10+ not register my clicks properly. It is also affecting every other app; it seems like the bottom of the screen (where the navigation bar is located) is not functioning like it should. You have to click above any content displayed in that area to have it register your finger. PLEASE FIX.

  30. Günther Jacobsen-avatar

    Günther Jacobsen


    App works great, I haven't any complaints; perhaps rather some suggestions: ~ make multi-wallpapers for the Home screen ~ ability to set transparency of icons on the Home screen There is also a spelling error under "Home screen settings" > "Swipe down for notification panel". It states: 'Open the notification panel by swiping down the anywhere on the Home screen.', while it shouldn't have that first THE: 'Open the notification panel by swiping down anywhere on the Home screen.''

  31. Keydegree 1210-avatar

    Did the latest update in February and the battery drain is now absolutely ridiculous have tried numbers times to reset my phone cleared the cache and scoured the internet for for answers and found nothing this quite clearly your update when are you going to sort this out, before this update my phone lasted nearly 2 days now I am lucky if I get 3/4 of a day out of my phone without a charge, this phone was great before but now hate it, constantly having to check for charge

  32. Santosh Siva-avatar

    Worst update so far after this update my device running into wallpaper problem that you mentioned that has been fixed. And very poor customer service not only this time but every single time I face poor customer service and I pay premium amounts to this cheap company from now on I will stop buying samsung products and suggest everyone I know to not to buy samsung products.

  33. Eric Sedin-avatar

    I have had many difficulties with this samsung one ui erasing all of my icons more than a few times. I never asked for this one ui thing. I never ever had any problems with android 8 but I started having trouble with a lot of features with my phone after it updated to android version 9 without my permission even though I clicked on NO when I was asked if I wanted to download android version 9. Samsung really appears to be good at not thinking things though now to me. Thank you for reading.

  34. Martin Apps-avatar

    Wikipedia opening in Samsung Internet on random pages! Other apps also opening when swiping/ unlocking the phone (e.g. Samsung pay). Samsung never seem to get any better at ironing out bugs. They think that the end user is going to identify bugs for them. They'll release a patch and it'll cause a different bug. It's really poorly designed software - although i prefer Android, ios is atleast well designed and their software gets updated periodically.

  35. Anthonyy-avatar

    Constant pop ads on the home and lock screen and I know it's this app causing it by simply looking in Google play after ad pops up and shows this is the most recent app. I don't get why samsung thinks it's okay to do this and honestly I wish we could disable the app or uninstall its updates but I can't or don't know how.

  36. eli mani-avatar

    I get so many popup ads.its really annoying. I cant do anything! I uninstalled so many apps, I installed malwarebytes, I cleared cach of every app I have on my phone, I scanned my phone many times. I changed ad setting on google chrome. WHAT SHOULD I DO?!!!!! (Even during typing this comment, ad pops up!)

  37. A Botello-avatar

    Phone hijacking that acts like malware but is overlooked by anti-virus tools because it is an original app. It cannot be uninstalled with most phones. It cannot be uninstalled because it comes with the phone.

  38. j ****-avatar

    This app limits the icon matrix to 5×6 as the smallest setting. I GREATLY PREFER 7×7, which others allow, so I have avoided one UI as much as possible. In addition, the interaction between MS home & one UI prevents me from setting MS as my default home. One of the two of these programs is purposefully disallowing the setting. I see no legitimate reason for this, except to aggravate someone attempting to use a home app other than one UI. Please change the code to allow a user (me & others).

  39. Ebony Martin-avatar

    This app is Horrible. It takes over control of your phone. Starting and stopping features as it wants. Even during phone calls. If you force stop it the app starts itself back up. I absolutely hate it.. I want this app off my phone. It is a big aggrivation.. I will not pick another samsong product. If i could give it no stars i would, however they wont let uspost how we really feel.

    It is limited someitems are not accessible for me to use properly needed, or Applied any icon's for me to have full access to utilize any projects that are necessary for my every day life. To provide the best possible solution to success in the future to evolve. Moving forward is a big deal for the power of the situation to be resolved by the power of this system. To ensure we will work our efforts grow as a team. Two minds is better than one Keep faith in each other individually God willingly

  41. Sandy Foucault-avatar

    Not sure what is going on with this, but I'm getting the same thing as some of other people have commented on here about the excessive amount of pop up ads on my locked home screen. I cannot get them to stop, I've tried everything except resetting my phone back to factory settings which I really do not want to do.

  42. SHAIK RASOOL-avatar

    This launcher is good but the only problem with this launcher is icon support. It only supports icon pack from galaxy store which are pretty bad. Those icon pack only support very very very few icon and are ugly. This launcher should support icon pack from Google play store as well so that it would be beautiful to use. Also vertical and horizontal app menu scroll option would be great.

  43. Amina Oakley-avatar

    👌s/o Adam Kee read what you're agreeing to; I've had zero problems with this app. I can put stuff where I want it , I cant think of anything I've wanted to do with it and couldn't. I've Never had an ad of any kind. Never even thought about it being an app- its preloaded [galaxy s9]

  44. Jonathan Jocham-avatar

    Jonathan Jocham


    I didnt ask for this app to be installed or implemented. It has for some reason intergraded itself into my own personalized user interface and the two of them are now fighting for control. I can be doing something on my phone and this app will switch my phone over to in so it can show me an ad. I never asked for this app. How do I get rid of it?

  45. Matthew Thomas-avatar

    One UI has been recently been updated 13/04/20 but the issue with home screen being unable to rotate to landscape mode with live wallpapers still exists, not sure if a bug or intentional? Have reported this on many occasions to no avail, home screen wallpaper will only rotate to landscape mode only with static applied wallpaper's, if a live wallpaper is applied it's unable to display in landscape no matter what settings are applied, as use to be able to with old touchwiz launcher

  46. Vinny-avatar

    I love this launcher, the animations, the icons, the fluidity, everything is amazing, even on lower-end phones. It truly is an amazing service provided by Samsung. Though, Samsung Daily should get more cards and interactions, and there are some irregularities with symmetry sometimes. Still, this launcher is great, and I'm extremely happy with using it over any 3rd parties.

    This is my favorite launcher I love the look of it, but one problem stops me from giving it 5 stars, the lack of screen scrolling. If you add screen scrolling it would probley be a 6/5 stars in my book.

    I am very impressed and pleased that my two accounts have been kept separate. It has been less stressful for me as messenger folk are unknown and samsung has all my contacts which I have not synced due to fb and messenger on my stevie5488gmail account as I do not want either of those having names of my contacts as I do have my contacts permission and find it to be very disrespectful to do any without asking their consent which I feel most strongly about and protective of my contacts

    Awful ! Battery life is drained overnight whilst not even using the phone. Tried everything to help until i noticed this app is draining the battery in the background, I never downloaded this app, it does not show on my phone and only noticed it was downloaded by going on google.

    I can't believe this! I can't use my phone because this piece of s**t "keeps stopping". It's very annoying... I'll be very happy if you can fix this, without a factory reset or something like this...

  51. PINK-avatar

    Ever since I got this phone and my other Samsung a10e I keep getting these people trying to get into my systems, into my Facebook, into my emails in other words I'm being hacked and the UI one home is crashing everything when I try to answer I have to wait I can't do anything. So I have to believe Thailand and vietnam and other places over there and my phone crashing and being hacked are from you guys and this ui one. I dont know what it is as nothing detects virus. FIX IT!!!

  52. Janet Sullivan-avatar

    Like a lot if other people who have commented about this forced app, it is draining my battery. If Samsung doesn't fix this I just might have to go with some one else! Not happy at all!

  53. Neil Hilde-avatar

    Everything was fine. I've had my J7 Crown for quite awhile. Don't remember when I bought it. Never had any other issues, until now. Went to restart my phone because my internet(Wifi and standard data) was really slow. Nothing I haven't done before, but now I get a persistent pop-up error message which has rendered my phone useless. "One UI Home keeps stopping" It will not allow me to close the app, it will not allow me to force close, or disable. It just keeps popping up with the error until the phone crashes, restarts and the errors pop-up again.

  54. Stefano López-avatar

    It's fluid and the experience is ok. But I don't know why Samsung is still limiting some options for mid-range devices, when this one can do it with any problem. Costumers ( me one of them) have to use 3rd party app to substitute those missing options.

  55. Rove McClain-avatar

    Please add support for Icon packs purchased on from the Play Store. I have some really awesome icon packs that I've purchased in the past and really miss using but I can't use them in the One UI Launcher. Also, please give use the option to remove the Widget Padding. Widgets don't fit properly on the Note 10+. I'd love for you guys to give us the ability to change the app drawer to a free scrolling vertical drawer. I'm sick of swiping through pages of apps.

    One UI is a software overlay developed by Samsung Electronics for its newer Android devices. Succeeding Samsung Experience UX and TouchWiz, it is designed to make using larger Smartphones easier and become more visually appealing.To provide more clarity, some elements of the UI are tweaked to match the colours that are based on the colour of the user's phone.It was unveiled at Samsung's developer conference in 2018 alongside the Galaxy S10 series, Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Fold.

    Are you in the business of building phones for people/users or businesses. You let Apps overide the main controls of the phone. You let Ads play on the home screen. You limit users ability to use features on the phone. You allow apps to require access to information that is not necessary. When people buy their phones, it is their property, not yours. They spend a lot of money on phones. You need to re-evaluate your companies values, as they don't seem too promising with practises like these.

  58. Jatin Patel-avatar

    This is absolute trash. Took away many features and now im left with a UI that looks like a 6 year old uses this phone eg cant change icon layout (had 5x5, now 3x3)so I've got 18 pages of icons Also rearranged them and deleted some. Lost the edge menu, gone forever so my s8+ edge was not worth the extra money I paid. At this point I'm thinking of going to iPhone even though I've owned s2 s3 s3 s5 s6 s7 s8 s8+ , I hate this phone now. All the power, ease of use and quality are GONE !!!

  59. Chris Swickard-avatar

    Edit: Why is this still running? I am using Nova launcher now. Samsung, if you insist on trying to own my phone, pay me for it. Things like this are why I want to try out LineageOS, maybe on a oneplus as those usually seem to be well supported by the community, and lots of 3rd party apps including Nova launcher. Already moved away from as much google as possible: search, browser, mail, etc. Moved away from some Samsung apps, time for the next step in both.

    I hate getting all of these random pop up ads. This app came with my phone and since the update, the ad pop-ups are getting worse! Because it's the UI system for the home page, the minute it's uninstalled, my customized pages are uninstalled. When I put them back together, the app reinstalls itself. FIX THIS!! We want to be able to use our phones without getting interrupted every time we use our phones!

  61. Jam Khong-avatar

    It's nice and awesome to use. But I still use 3rd party launcher due to the grid size and double tap to sleep. It will be awesome if oneui launcher support 6x6 and double tap to sleep. And once they support it. I will definitely back to oneui launcher.

  62. Mary Poole-avatar

    Really have not spend alot of time review this app. So it seemed to be really a good app, but it was a little hard for me, just didn't have the extra time to work though.

  63. Bev S-avatar

    I am so grateful to the other posts!! I thought i was going nuts. This app is the only app draining my battery. Screens shots appearing, settings change.. airplane mode on, changing wifi settings, do not disturb and so on...enough to make one think they are nuts. I cannot stand the updates, every time one happens my phone settings all change and it starts acting up. Why are there apps like this that i cannot uninstall if i don't want? I agree with everyone of these negative reviews.

    Battery gets drained to fast by this app. Don't know what changed but something you did recently affected the app negatively. Used to get 2 days on full charge now i get 7 hours . It is this app

  65. Gareth Bowles-avatar

    Since this app updated which I never installed in the 1st place, I have been bombarded with ad after ad every time I unlock my phone. What the hell is going on? Sort it out please!!! New update, I have since uninstalled the updates for this and blocked it from doing anything in the background which seems to have fixed the issue of the ads popping up.

  66. eiprille Duco-avatar

    Eversince I upgraded to one ui latest version my homesctscreen lock keeps on going landscape and it will get stuck... which never happens b4 the upgrade.. and guess what... the new uodate says it fixes the homescreen issue... samsung you need to fix diz

  67. Doris Mitchell-avatar

    All icons disappeared from home page, was working fine until I started seeing UI home systems on home screen in a red block... that occured today although battery has been draining quickly in last few days & a lot of ads popping up.

  68. Donald Wobig-avatar

    It drains my battery. It drains my wife's battery. I see no use for this app. If one could only disable it. That would be great. Could then use another similar function app. This is almost enough of a problem to scrap these phones.

  69. Flo Eaise-avatar

    My phone has been hijacked by this App. PLEASE save yourself ALOT of problems. This App drains your battery, downloads apps on it's own. Opens apps on it's own and has constant pop ups and even worse you cant uninstall it simply wont allow you. RUN DONT WALK AWAY FROM THIS APP.

  70. Yousef Joe-avatar

    I love this app very much because it organizes the applications and makes it easy to access them smoothly and easy, but please add new forms that make the application more beautiful Thank you😊

  71. Andy Smith-avatar

    I updated my Galaxy j6 to Android 10 One UI 2.0 on 01-May 2020 and now some apps load images very slowly or not at all. BBC Sounds app won't start up (reinstalled and cleared cache). Don't know if One UI is responsible but I hope a fix is available soon.

  72. Diana Playz_46-avatar

    I've used this app ever since I got my new phone but recently it's been crashing my home screen and I can't access any apps I want to go on. If this is because of some update I am very upset about it.

  73. GhostDragonGirl161-avatar



    While I never agreed updating anything at all. My Galaxy S9's home screen has changed. Everything is placed to the right and some of the apps I have are way too the edge to the point that they are unreachable. Also it's like as though I deleted a lot of the apps I have when I did not delete much. Research led me here and yeah, I'm not happy with my phone's new home screen appearance. I prefer that the home screen stays centered. It's weird to me that everything is set towards the edge.

  74. Chris Ellom-avatar

    Awful! Pop up ads with all other apps closed! Can not mute ads like you can in all other ads! Pop up ads while sleeping, driving, working gaming, or for no reason at all! What is the solution!?!?!

    Too many adverts appear on my home screen, anyone having the same problem I suggest that you go into your setting and apps and uninstall the update, I've just done that and everything is back to normal

    This app worked totally fine for about 5 months after I bought this phone before it suddenly started crashing all the time. I can't access my home screen anymore and only certain apps can be accessed now.

  77. Zac Chen-avatar

    Finder just failed after the latest update was pushed out by telco. And its no longer working well with Samsung One UI. Please make sure things work before pushing them out.

  78. Misawa Mandi-avatar

    Within the past few days this app started pushing full screen ads to my phone. Sometimes my screen isn't even on and my phone isn't in use when the ads pop up. This is unacceptable. I tried to install, but then I don't get to have any apps on my screen. I'm pretty sure there are regulations about pushing full-screen ads in apps when it was never accepted by the end users.

  79. Juan Camacho-avatar

    The review is based on solely the UI which I find very easily to access and adjust and also learn. Now with other reviews Im not sure how we veered so far off topic. This is seriously a great start to a great beginning. FEEL ACCOMPLISHED!

    I love this launcher but the reason for three stars is because I can't apply icon packs from play store so I'm forced to use icons from galaxy themes with limited number of icons which looks odd... I'm using a third party launcher now but if you could add a option to apply icon packs then I'm definitely coming back to One UI

  81. Lady J-avatar

    Keeps on changing my apps that I prefer to use after I change to the ones I want, next time I use my phone it's changed right back to the apps I do NOT PREFER to use. Plus, I can not un-install these apps that I don't prefer to use. Being forced to use what I don't want to use. I guess I will have to buy a different Brand phone after this bad experience.

  82. Malcolm Lamb-avatar

    I regularly get full screen ads and ads the block the bottom part of the screen the freeze and sometimes crash other apps. I know this is what's causing it because it says it was the last used app whenever I get an ad.

  83. Jeri G-avatar

    DRAINS MY BATTERY! Dont know what it's purpose is or why Samsung decided this was needed. My note 9 is one year old and was holding battery life really well. Suddenly I'm at less than 50% and the day wasnt even 1/2 over. Checked to see what was the cause and it's this unwelcome app sucking up my battery life. Force stopped and all my apps on my home screens disappeared. Had to reactivate and set my home screen apps all over again. Dont like apple but this is catching up to them.

    Latest 2.1 version is causing all of my home screen shortcuts to be corrupted when the app is upgraded. Nova launcher works just fine and does not corrupt my home screen shortcuts.

  86. Erin Sexton-avatar

    Horrible. Ads! I continued to have full screen ads that froze my phone. If I was lost and needed my gps asap, I had to contend with closing out full screen ads freezing up my phone until I closed them out. It took me a ton of research to figure out this app was the culprit. Get it together samsung. A full screen ad that takes up my whole phone and I can't do anything until I exit it, dangerous if I had an emergency and needed to call 911. Fix this. This makes me never want to buy samsung again.

  87. Jesse Ward-avatar

    Ads have begun popping up on my homescreen as well as my lockscreen. So I troubleshot which app could be causing this. And lo and behold it's this one. I've already disabled it twice and somehow it reenables itself. Stop allowing these ads. I thought playstore only allowed apps that followed their terms of service? Kind of odd this app completely ignores it.

  88. Ming Zhu-avatar

    It had been very good, I'd like to give 5 stars. But last week I have had updated to version on my Note 10 plus phone. Since then, the UI becomes very unstable and no response (hang up) several times in one hour. I have found a workaround, that is: open the One UI Home App info in Settings, and touch the "Force stop" button. By this way, it can make the response come back again. Please fix this bug.

  89. Laura Warnock-avatar

    Pop up ads galore making me crazy. The developers say that this is not the app that's doing it but when I go into Google play it says that this is the last app used... Every single time! So I think they're app has been taken over and they don't know it or they don't want to admit it. I have even installed malware bytes and it's still happening...

  90. Carrie Berry-avatar

    Thank you to all who reviewed. The detailed descriptions have helped me to fully understand why it seems there is a tiny magical beast living inside my phone making it do ridiculous unnecessary tricks with ads, random shutdowns, and conecctivity issues! I cannot begin to express my gratitude! As for Android, come onnnnnn! Get it together already with these ridiculous controlling apps that we do not want or need!

  91. Lilli-avatar

    It keeps giving me pop up ads and I can't uninstall it. Even with the update removed it still keeps doing it. I wish I could give less than 1 star. It deserves 0.

  92. John Okocha-avatar

    Nice UI but my phone seems to crash quite frequently. Sometimes, I can't even check who's calling or answer the phone because it's frozen. I'm also unable to re-start the phone during this time. Really frustrating.

  93. Jason Humphrey-avatar

    5/17/2020 - WOW WOW!!!! Out of the blue this app decided to drain the battery from 100% 25% in 3 hours. Battery usage is 79% !!!!! This needs to be fixed ASAP

    If I could, I wouldn't put any stars, but you have to put at least 1☆. With a passion, I hate the new update for my phone- Samsung Galaxy S10+. This app is stupid and does nothing. Before this update my wallpaper on my homescreen moved. I thought it was pretty awesome that it did that and I loved it. Now, it's just boring. I wish I could get rid of this app and take back the update. I, stupidly, hit "always" when the pop up for the homescreen came up and I'm pretty pissed about it.
