The Samsung team explains how the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 interface was improved

0 1

Samsung posted a video with some of the team behind the new foldable experience that Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Z Flip3 5G brought. It’s interesting to hear them talk about the inspiration behind some of the changes, but this six minute video also includes some handy tips on how to use the phones more efficiently.

Samsung sees the two phones as very different devices. The cover display on the Galaxy Z Flip3 handles basic tasks and allows the user to customize the look of the phone with different watch surfaces. When you open Flip, it turns into a familiar bar-type phone. Z Fold3 starts as a bar phone and transforms into a power user tablet when opened.

The company was looking for ways to make it easier for users to set up their phone the way they want. For example, the Z Fold3 has the ability to mirror shortcuts and widgets on its front page on the main screen, thus eliminating the need to make the same change twice when editing the home screen.

The multi-window mode was also renewed with useful tricks. For example, you can drag a link from the Samsung browser to the side of the Z Fold3 screen and it will split the screen and display the link in a new browser window. This allows you to keep browsing the original page while also viewing the new page.

There is also a new taskbar similar to the one seen in desktop operating systems. It gives you quick access to the most important apps. The simple act of checking a new message and then returning to the previous app used to take six touches, but the taskbar reduces it to three taps.
