EXPERT REVIEW

The Galaxy C9 Pro runs Android Marshmallow, with Samsung’s skin on top of it. Quick fun fact: this skin is not called TouchWiz anymore. What I liked about the new skin is that it doesn’t bombard you with a ton of features and settings up front. I particularly liked the Secure Folder app that offers the dual apps feature. Essentially, this mode allows you to run two apps at one time. The current skin on top of Marshmallow is clean and most of the extraneous features are hidden. Most of these features only show up for the first time when a need is triggered. For example, the Game Launcher settings - that lets you capture gameplay or even stream it live - propped up for the first time I fired up Asphalt 8. I like this intelligent implementation and it is clear that Samsung is learning from its mistakes in the past. Big thumbs up.
