    Seems to me there's a lot of wasted screen space, see 'messages', 'alarms' and 'notes'. The information density on certain other screens though is absolutely insane, look at the 'members application' for example. The top of that screen is giving me an OCD fit. IMO the solution to UI layout on tall phones is not blasting 80% of the UI on the bottom of the screen.

      True, but I don't think the Members app is really part of One UI yet.

      I think they have a good idea here, but poorly executed in some parts. I'm surprised no other OSes have even tried with the problem of huge screens. It does make sense to make the top half of the screen, at least in a default state, more of a "readout" and keep the interactive elements towards the bottom.

        I am actually very interested in learning more about the research upon which this approach is based. Some simple routine tasks like setting up an alarm, adding a note, the initial steps of a complex flow might be better optimized for one-handed operation, however it's highly likely that as the complexity of the task increases you'll have to use 2 hands anyways so I'm not sure whether this exact sort of optimization is worth it, but yeah... if they made the research or rational public it'll most certainly be an interesting read.
