Samsung has administered an update for the Samsung TouchWiz Home that can be loaded from either the Play Store or Galaxy App Store on to Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. The purpose of the update is to make both Galaxy S8 models run smoother with less lag.
Many have been complaining about lag on Samsung’s newest flagship smartphone models, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. So naturally, Samsung has gone ahead with an attempt to fix the problems and better overall performance by updating the TouchWiz Home application. Lag is not uncommon for Samsung devices, even one’s with 4GB of RAM and the fastest processor in the industry. This can be attributed to Samsung’s feature-rich software skin atop Android Nougat. However, the amount of slowdowns has been reduced on Galaxy models over the years thanks to updates like this one and a slimmed down interface.
The latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz Home is version 6.1.09.2, and it will update the existing app from the Play Store or Galaxy App Store. Samsung has noted in the app’s changelog that it has fixed the lag experienced when swiping up and down between the homescreen and app drawer. Animations are also quicker and less noticeable than before.
