Galaxy Labs is a suite of Samsung apps to manage your files and optimize performance/battery life
The Android experience on Samsung devices has come a long way since the horrid TouchWiz days. The company’s One UI skin is much lighter, less intrusive, and relatively bloat-free. On top of that, it packs in a couple of great customization options for users to personalize their device. Among these is Samsung’s Good Lock — a suite of mods that allow you to customize the UI, automate tasks, or make the most out of your phone with a single hand. Now, Samsung is adding on to its lineup of useful apps with the new Galaxy Labs suite.
As reported by SamMobile, Galaxy Labs is a collection of device optimization apps for Galaxy smartphone and tablet owners. Much like Good Lock, which acts as a one-stop-shop for mods, Galaxy Labs houses a couple of apps that will let you optimize your device’s performance from a single location. As of now, there are four apps to choose from — File Guardian, Battery Tracker, Battery Guardian, and App Booster.
Out of the lot, File Guardian seems to be the most useful utility as it allows you to restore permanently deleted files from your phone’s internal and external storage. This proves to be especially useful, as file recovery using a PC is impossible due to the fact that the internal storage is not mounted on Windows or Mac as a standard USB disk. The Battery Tracker app allows you to track your phone’s battery usage and offers many more details than what’s available on Android’s built-in battery menu. With the app, you’ll be able to track battery usage since the last full charge and also check your battery usage for the last seven days. While these features will be available to users on Android 10 and One UI 2.0, the Battery Tracker app enables them for users on Android Pie.
In comparison, the Battery Guardian app doesn’t do anything new and only checks for existing battery optimization features. Lastly, the App Booster aims to optimize all apps on the device and boost their performance. The app takes a long time to complete the optimization process, but we aren’t sure what exactly goes behind the scenes during the process. Galaxy Labs, along with the aforementioned apps, are available on Samsung’s Galaxy Store in the Netherlands right now. However, you can easily sideload the apps on your Galaxy device by downloading the APKs linked below. Do note that you’ll first have to download Galaxy Labs and Galaxy Labs Agent on your device before you can install the other four APKs.
