TouchWiz. For a lot, TouchWiz on top of Android is a joyful marriage, as well as for others it is a motive to promptly declare divorce. I’ve to say I’m positively surprised about the new interface of Samsung. From the very first time you power on the phone, it is not difficult to find out how clean everything has become. In six easy steps, you are on the home-screen. What is new? Everything seems more flatter than what we saw on the previous flagships Galaxy S5 and Note 4. Everywhere you look, Samsung has chosen many components of the Material Design of Google. The icons appear somewhat squarer and Samsung has upgraded many of its own apps using a brand new interface. A good touch would be the clock and calendar program icons. These icons are now more interactive – for instance, the calendar icon will show your the number of current date. It is also great to know that you could disable most of Samsung’s own bloatware, which could save lots of discomforts and memory in the entire user experience.

Samsung has also fixed its settings display: it is not an endless list which makes it difficult to look for something. It has also added a brand new program called Smart Manager. Whether this program is useful to users or not is something they must determine, but it really a good method to determine your phone’s battery level, details on RAM and storage, and whether your phone is safe (McAfee comes preloaded).

The Korean company introduced support for themes on the Galaxy A series, and it is now even better on the S6 and S6 edge. Samsung lets you select from 4 pre-installed themes or you can download more from the themes shop. There are plenty of possibilities, thanks to the variety of varied themes, you can turn your phone’s interface into anything you enjoy :-).

Is there any disadvantages? Surely there’re. Though these might be new style for utilizing the applications –

In the app drawer, it is no more possible to scroll to first page from the last, which means you will need to scroll back through the preceding pages. What’s also odd is that when you make the home-screen layout into a 4*5 or 5*5 grid, the app drawer stays 4*5 and does not transform so. Additionally a pity is the reality that Samsung’s own applications are still running in full-screen mode for the large part, while Google’s guidelines indicate these programs should keep the status bar visible (there is truly no requirement for the music program to be full screen, unless someone spends plenty of time on the visualizations.) The Toolbox feature, that was launched with the Galaxy S5, is gone, though at the same moment, it is amazing to find out the recent apps display is more receptive.

Totally, the progress in TouchWiz are simple to notice – the simplified settings display, many new Android Lollipop animations, as well as the lovely new stock programs for a good package. Still, there are several things which can be made better, and hopefully Samsung will make it through upcoming updates. Right now, this is 100 percent most effective version of the TouchWiz.
