Installing a new launcher won't change the style of your quick settings, or the style of Samsung apps, or the colourful icons on Settings, etc.

Have you ever heard of something calle... moreyou will have a cleaner UI, but still all the bloat and running samsung apps that destroy your battery.
TW is my reason too to not buy a samsung

Have you ever heard of something called the Play Store? ... just install another launcher, you don´t have to flash another ROM like CM to get rid of TW rofl
mtmerrick, 08 Jan 2014Hey look, Samsung has invented Sense(wiz)5!Exactly the same I was goin to write! The second pic resembels somewhat a HTC sense5 prototype. Comon samsung, use ur lil brains are get out of copying series. Samsung will soon launch Sense Zoe :D
The new samsung UI is a mix of Sense5 UI and the iOS7.. Notice the Magazine Style of Blinkfeed and the Icon Gratients and Font similar to iOS7.. Bet the Keyboard will have transparency too.. Not that this is a bad thing.. The Nature UX badly needed an overhaul.. And this looks refreshing.. So maybe Samsung will give us the best of all 3 worlds! Sensibility of Sense5, Colors and Mood of iOS 7 and the features and functionality of Touchwiz!
Finally, the old trusty TouchWiz design is getting a bit tired. Samsung shouldn't even try to reinvent the wheel - just make the stock Android look a bit more "Samsung" and not as texture-heavy as the current version. Pure, simple and clear is the way to go.
Definitely Absolute, 08 Jan 2014Looks very similar to Windows Phone Tiles homescreen, I smell a lawsuit.Tiles like WP? wtf? LOL
What drugs are you abusing?
Touchwiz is good looking (not to mention sense ui on htc) but the only thing that borthers me is how laggy it is ... low,mid range or mid-high end phones implimented with touchwiz lag or should i say laggg... the only 1s with less lag is S3,S4 and Note 3 wich i should say is lag free.... i have an all the phones i mentioned but if u own a S3 or S4mini u will recognize high qualtity lagg when swiping in the menu & home screen... i did an experimen and flashed an simple rom (wich i created for myself wich has MIUI(icons)and htc sense 5(interface) just to test the speed & trust me my MINIS where butter i mean butteryyy smooooth.
Metal chassis and new launcher i like i like a lot.
GS5 will be phone of 2014...
Is that what you call a Next-gen touchWiz innovative overhaul?
Sammy ....u need to worker harder?
U cant buy us this time with cartoonish gimmicks served on messy palette...
ramenation, 08 Jan 2014If im not mistaken, samsung dropped OLED because the demand was higher than the productionNot for the production or demand, seems like they want more money for OLED screens #GalaxyF series
Samsung made it clear in the past days the the company will be focusing on the software part more than the hardware, it will be the very 1st release of a newer version of Touchwiz after the statement. Since Sammy is number 1 & they had so much of trouble only due to the Touchwiz , It will be interesting to see how they manage to compete with stock Android & the Newer version of Sense.
Let's hope for the best !! Good luck Sammy.
mtmerrick, 08 Jan 2014Hey look, Samsung has invented Sense(wiz)5!doesnt even look remotely like sense
