Some of the Android Phones with Best UI

To assess the efficiency, people used to look at benchmarking systems checking the hardware aspect of smartphones. However, the hardware side isn’t all about a portable device’s general efficiency: software development is also among another variable.

When it goes to the software aspect of Android smartphones, companies generally create two decisions: create highly tailored variants of Android for their phones or publish them with a small number of customizations (and also with no UI customizations either) with Android inventory edition.

The first alternative offers more characteristics and helpful apps, whereas the second solution generally leads to stronger performance. In spite of results, Master Lu Benchmark published his private top 10 of the finest Android user interfaces.

Hydrogen OS through One Plus is the greatest and it’s mostly an inventory UI, according to the classification. 2nd, they discover Hawaii’s EMUI, which is a highly tailored variant of Android alternatively.

Smartisan’s fifth position is invaded by Smartisan OS, whereas Xiaomi’s MIUI gets the fourth position. Then received Oppo’s Color OS, Samsung understands on Galaxy-series phones, Google Pixels User interface, HTC’s Sense, Fun touch of Vivo OS, and finally Nubia UI.

There are still a few irritating components of One UI, but they’re not ruining what’s otherwise a comprehensive, consistent, and (dare I mention) reflective Android variant. This is not Samsung’s standard wisdom.

Though in the past couple of years, you have not yet paid near regard to the globe of Android, you may have missed anything: we’re not talking much more about bodies. We used to believe there could be such a thing as real Android, which was then violated on the bottom of it by useless and irritating software levels.

Pure Android is doing far less than it utilized to do nowadays. The simple version of an Android Open Source Project (AOSP) is no longer anything you would like to use on your own so many valuable pieces have been removed from the open-source or are being distributed either by Google or even the manufacturer alternatively.

No Phone Android Anymore with ‘Pure’

So it’s kind of missing the point to speak about real Android and masks. Most Android-built devices have special technology that runs much closer than the body, whether it’s Samsung, Xiaomi or yeah also Google.

Throughout the review for Pixel 2 vs S9, Samsung Galaxy of version S9 is a better Smartphone because it has good video recording performance, wide-angle selfie, till 400 GB expandable storage, greater screen resolution as well as pixel density, larger screen volume, fully AMOLED display, up to 30 minutes visibility of 1.5 meters, flood-resistant IP68, smaller, quicker GPU acceleration and strong CPU, and strong battery capacity.

Here is a brief analysis of Google Pixels 2 vs Samsung Galaxy S9,


Width; Samsung S9 having 8.5 mm, on the other hand, Google Pixel 2 is 7.8 mm wide.


Samsung S9 weighs 6807 mm although Google pixel 2 is 69.7 mm; Google pixel 2 is 143 g, whereas Samsung S9 is 163 g.


Almost all devices are dust-resistant and water-proof.


Pixel 2 of Google is 145.7 mm, while Samsung S9 is 147.7 mm.

Feel and Look

Most of the inventory (Pixel) Android’s esthetic attraction is on house displays and the phone drawer when you get in the menu options and dialog cabinets, it’s fairly utilitarian instead of beautiful.

With Samsung’s One user interface, regard to precision extends into table headings or dialog boxes as well as icons a little closer. Take the flying bubble-style submissions in the Settings panel in One UI, for instance, as opposed to the very registered display on the Pixel devices.

Rarely, Samsung’s propensity to graphic flourish may be above and confusing. With one user interface, however, the equilibrium appears to be pretty good, with fewer useless changes to feel and look.

That’s not to mention the bad design of the Pixel Android OS. The Google Assistant input (one swipe from house monitor to the left) is performed very beautifully, and faster than the Bixby-powered counterpart of Samsung. Notifications on inventory Android feel a little better and easier, we believe.

Thematic and Personalization

Samsung does have the upper hand here, even though we’ve only seen the 1st signs in a theme show up in Android Q. The one user interface has a Wallpaper as well as theme admission on the Settings menu that doesn’t have any counterpart on Android inventory on the Pixels, so you have a number more choices to run around.

The animated wallpapers are quite well done from either the pixel point of view, as is the standard weather and calendar application. All in all, however, we favor Samsung’s One user interface architecture, and it’s also more versatile.

Overall, Samsung’s One user interface is an enhancement on what’s come before it: Everything is clearer and simpler to write, with much more subtle and yet just as effective graphic indications for customers. Many of the icons also seem to have been fixed up to enhance the general look of the Operating system.

Traditionally, the advantage of getting a more stable design is that it’s running quicker, and that’s something Google certainly has in mind. Though, Samsung appears to have produced one user interface nippier and far less laggy than any of its earlier incarnations of TouchWiz or Samsung Understanding, even if we tested it in among of Samsung’s 2019 flagship devices.

Options and Apps

Apps are one region where Samsung, as well as its one-UI variant of Android, is still far behind how much Google can deliver, which may be anticipated. About connections, calendar, calculator, SMS applications, etc., we would be amazed if many individuals preferred Samsung’s alternatives over Google’s.

The variations are most pronounced in the most significant applications: Google Chrome vs. Samsung Internet, Gmail vs. Samsung Email and Google Photos vs Samsung Gallery. Apps from Samsung aren’t awful, but Google has a definite advantage.


Thus these are few of the parameters discussed above where you can compare different phones and the UI they have got.

‘Designer babies’ debate should start, scientists say



‘Designer babies’ debate should start, scientists say

By James Gallagher Health editor, BBC News website

Rapid progress in genetics is making “designer babies” more likely and society needs to be prepared, leading scientists have told the BBC.

Dr Tony Perry, a pioneer in cloning, has announced precise DNA editing at the moment of conception in mice.

He said huge advances in the past two years meant “designer babies” were no longer HG Wells territory.

Other leading scientists and bioethicists argue it is time for a serious public debate on the issue.

Designer babies – genetically modified for beauty, intelligence or to be free of disease – have long been a topic of science fiction.
