Samsung One UI 2.5 changes


There's now Pro Video mode. It's similar to having manual controls when taking photos. This mode allows the user to have granular control to how their devices will tune the different settings to achieve the best video output possible. Samsung One UI 2.5 enables access to better controls when it comes to exposure settings, autofocus, white balance, audio sources, and even more. There's even the option to plug in a USB-C mic to use it as an external audio source. The new update also enables users to use the default 16:9 ratio or alternatively switch to 21:9. There's even support for 8K recording.

Samsung DeX

Samsung One UI 2.5 now makes DeX wireless. Previously, you would need a dock to enable a desktop-like interface once your phone is connected to an external display. Now, wireless connectivity allows DeX to function without the need for cables that are prone to cluttering.

Samsung Notes

This app has undergone quite a huge update. It now has better organization through page numbers. Users also can now highlight phrases by underlining them. You can also draw directly on notes and make annotations directly on PDF files from within the app itself.
