User Interface is the point of human-computer interaction and communication in a device. It can also be simplified as what the user would equip to interact with a website 

This could include: 

  • Screens to display information 
  • Keyboards to type your information 
  • Mouse to navigate the cursor through your screen

There are also various different user interfaces which include: 

  • Graphical user interface 
  • Command-line interface 
  • Menu-driven interface 
  • Touch-user interface as displayed on your phone 
  • Voice user interface like the voice recording in your social messaging apps 
  • form-based user interface like the contact page on a website 
  • natural language interface 

User Experience is more focused on the loading time of a page, the aesthetic appearance of the website. 

User Experience to online websites when they would want to keep user traffic within their website. In fact, a one-second delay in page load time has been shown to cause a 7 percent loss in conversion and 11 percent fewer page views. For an online store earning $50,000 a day, that one-second delay adds up to more than $1 million in lost sales each year
