Upcoming versions of One UI and related Samsung apps will not include ads in the form of ads. This is completely unacceptable on high-end smartphones, which generally cost more than 1,000 euros by 2021.
The problem that is still felt in all Samsung smartphones, minus their user experience, may finally be resolved. The topic is familiar to Xiaomi users, but has been frequently overlooked in the Galaxy field.
Does it end in sight to advertise on Samsung smartphones?
First, the problem. Advertisements that are presented in the form of advertisements and/or notifications pop up Via smartphone interface with One UI. Problematic, in fact, has always affected this user interface since its introduction in 2018.
It should be noted that advertising itself is a resource for Samsung. However, we can forgive its existence, or ignore it entirely on cheaper smartphones (if they are really affordable), but not on high-end phones.
That is, if on the Galaxy M12 – From 179 EUR on Amazon.ES – Advertising would be justified if it helped reduce the cost of the product, which is unimaginable on a high-end smartphone, at a cost of 800 euros or more.
Unfortunately, the advertisement continues to be presented, in a hidden and somewhat haphazard way, even on the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3, the most advanced products from the South Korean manufacturer. An unimaginable scenario in the world of iOS for the Apple iPhone.
Advertising is presented in different formats in One UI
Above is an example of a screenshot taken in Samsung’s weather app. Note the address, with an online ticket service recommendation for train and travel planning.
Example collected by post Android, just one of several cases in which this happens. Another popular format is to display supported content, suggested apps, and downloadable app bundles, among others.
Fortunately, in Portugal and in other countries where the RGPD is in force, the incidence of these ads is lower. However, we can find similar cases in many Samsung system apps which are difficult to remove.
Ads should disappear from Samsung smartphones with a single user interface
The promise was made by TM Roh, the chief executive officer in charge of the sector cell phone From Samsung, as publishing progresses Sammobile, during a session and discussion dedicated to collaborators with the South Korean giant. According to this institutional source, the advertisement will soon disappear from the One UI interface.
Moreover, the executive specified to remove it from system apps like Samsung Pay, Samsung Themes, Samsung Weather, and others. Added to this is ensuring that Samsung “listens to its employees and users”.
Unfortunately, the South Korean tech has not specified when it will begin removing updates. His promise, while positive, only mentions “future updates to the user interface”.
However, this is still a positive step for Samsung users, something that will help South Korea stand out from a myriad of Chinese competitors.
In short, the advertisement will disappear from One UI with future updates, although we don’t know when exactly.
