Android 9 Pie update on Samsung S9+ Plus - India

I just got my Samsung S9+ updated to the latest Android 9 pie today and I’m all excited! The first remarkable change is the New user interface. I see a new icon for ‘Call’, ‘Contact’, ‘Message’, ‘Bixby’, ‘Camera’, ‘Gallery’ and more…

Navigation has also become easy and it’s fun to explore the new changes. All I could see is the new icon and new interface after the Samsung software update.

Here are some of the features that are included in the recent Android 9 update.

    Adaptive battery
    Dark Mode
    Easier text selection
    Android Pie gesture navigation
    Easier screen rotation
    Customized notification settings
    Improved DND settings
Android 9 is easy to use and the experience gets better once you start using them!

Adaptive Battery

I've never had issues with the battery backup of Samsung s9+. The battery is good for more than 24 hours with minimal usage (Mobile Data ON). It lasts for 8-12 hours with an average usage of media and phone call.

With the Adaptive battery feature, you can just manage your phone with a single charge. It understands the apps and battery usage. It ensures your apps don't OVER use the battery!


Just as the name, it allows you to view the favorite part of your favorite apps.

Interactive navigation

You can just switch between screens and apps by using gestures instead of buttons.

Mobile Dashboard

How often do you use your smartphone? What do you do? Are you on Facebook, Do you watch a movie or read a book? You can now get notifications on how much time you spend on each application on your phone with the dashboard feature.

Set Timer for your Apps

Do you want to control your mobile usage or specifically 'App usage'? You can set daily time limits for mobile apps. The app icon grays out when you exceed the limit.
