Samsung iTest is a new interactive application from the South Korean giant that allows iPhone users to get a taste of the Android operating system on their phones. iTest emulates Android OS on the Samsung Galaxy smartphone experience by adding an app to users’ iPhone that gives them “a little taste of Samsung”. The new iTest website is currently announced in New Zealand but is accessible worldwide. Samsung is expected to advertise this website to the world in the near future. Gadgets 360 was able to test the app independently.
When a user opens the iTest website, they are greeted with a QR code on the home screen. Scanning this code will prompt users with a message telling them to add the app to their home screen. Once this is done, the user can experience Android OS on their iPhone. The overall experience with the app has been smooth, but it also involves a lot of dummy apps. There are SMS notifications that give tips and tricks on how to navigate the app.
We tried the camera app, but rather than showcasing Samsung’s camera app, it involved a tutorial from photographer Logan Dudds. Frankly, a demo of the camera app would have been a much better experience. On the home screen, this is a typical Android operating system experience and it also features a few icons of built-in Samsung apps like Galaxy Store, Galaxy Themes, Gallery, and Galaxy Wearable. Some of the apps in the app drawer work, while others are just dummy icons bundled together as popular apps. iTest was first spotted by MacRumors.
Earlier this week, Samsung announced cashback offers and trade bonuses on its Galaxy S21 series. Customers will be able to purchase the Galaxy S21 + for Rs. 64,999, Galaxy S21 for Rs 68,999 and Galaxy S21 Ultra for Rs. 95,999 after discount. Customers can also bundle any of the Galaxy S21 series smartphones with the Galaxy Watch Active2 worth Rs. 23,990 or Galaxy Buds Pro worth Rs 15,990 for Rs 990.
