Samsung releases the AR-based Quick Measure app that only works with the Galaxy S10 5G. Samsung AR-based Quick Measure app can help you find your way easily or immerse yourself in Harry Potter’s world. Another use for AR is to measure objects around you by simply pointing your phone at them.

Google has already developed an AR-based ruler app, which needs to detect flat surfaces to estimate its size. While the concept is appealing, the software is approximate and often fails to identify objects you want to measure. It’s free to download for any Android smartphone that supports Google’s ARCore platform.

Samsung wanted to build its own application, which seems to be more accurate than Google’s. This makes sense, though, as Samsung company’s app uses a time of flight sensor for its calculations. The only drawback here is that out of all current Samsung phones, only the Galaxy S10 5G has a such a sensor, making the app exclusive to the device, at least for the time being.

In addition to calculating the size of an object, Samsung Measure can also estimate its area, length, depth, and distance from you, which makes it far more capable than Google’s software.  

The app can automatically detect objects and provide their measurements when you aim at them, but also lets you manually draw lines between two points to calculate the distance between them. Lastly, you can quickly switch between centimeters and inches with a toggle, sparing you the trouble of converting units.
