1. Samsung Health -> I recon this one is exclusive to Samsung phones because of hardware-assisted features?
2. An app for transport time (e.g. train, bus...)
3. Google Chrome
4. Skype
5. Discord
6. Microsoft Teams
7. Outlook
8. Zoho Mail
9. Netflix
10. YT Music

Samsung Health is one of my favourites because it simplifies a lot for checking heart rate, oxygen oxidation (?), stress levels, etc. You might not believe in it, but I can vouch for it for its accuracy... I've done manual tests many times with proper equipment and it matched to Samsung Health. It works by using a scanner on the back of the phone to take your heart rate (for example). I only learnt about this ability on the S8 a few weeks ago after having it for 10 months. That being said, it is really convenient when you're going running as well because the location tracking can determine how far you're actually running and it can even setup a timer system to alert you when you reach your goal (e.g. 2.4km, 5km, ...).

'Stress level' really? I mean how? Does it correlate with heartbeat? To be honest I would get more stressed if I knew I was getting stressed. It's a vicious cycle :p

I have no idea how it works but I can vouch for the stress level being accurate to me. I feel the same level of stress as I am being told on the Samsung Health app, and I know it isn't a pseudo-effect.

I can't see how else it would work unless it evolved around heart-beat rhythm monitoring though. It would be logical to me if it did work this way.
