Samsung’s new Android Pie based One UI is currently in beta testing and if you have tried it out and want to switch back to Experience UI, here’s how you can do it.

Samsung is working on a new user interface (UI), One UI. The company recently invited Samsung Galaxy Note 9, S9 and S9+ users to try out this new UI based on Google’s Android 9.0 Pie operating system under a Beta program. However, beta means that the software will have its share of bugs and issues. If out of excitement you installed Android Pie based One UI beta on your smartphone and now want to go back to the much more stable Experience UI, here’s how you can do so.

Prerequisites

  • Backup your data as this process is going to wipe your smartphone completely.
  • A USB-Type C cable. It is recommended to use the one that came bundled in your phone’s box.
  • A Windows PC or Mac.

After the process is completed your smartphone will reboot to the stable Experience UI.

Once the software is downloaded, it will be installed on your smartphone. The whole process can take more than an hour depending on your internet connection speed. Make sure that there is no interruption during the installation process as that can lead to permanent damage to your smartphone. So ensure your laptop and smartphone have plenty of juice when you start installing the software after the download is complete.

  1. One UI is pure Junk! Ruined my note8 phone and it did it without permission. Looked like a standard update, I am so pissed at Samsung never again will I buy this garbage it made my sound messed up and my phone looks like it is kindergarten garbage phone now!

  2. This piece of garbage updated with out my permission today. It has ruined my phone, and I cannot receive calls. All my calls go straight to voice mail now and nothing the tech could do corrected that. After an hour on the phone with Samsung tech support I learned I have to take it into a tech to have it rolled back. And not only that, the interface is ugly as dirt. The colors are dull, the icons are flat and boring, and I cannot clear my notifications now. What a piece of garbage.
