Its still a very young UI. And of course there will hiccups. I'm just glad they got around to showing it off on the Note4. I got a little worried when they constantly showing it in much older devices. I just upgraded from the S4 to the Note 4 so I wouldn't mind having stock 5.0 on my Note 4. I've only had a small amount of time to play around with the Nexus 6 and when i say it feels less cluttered you can believe that. The functionality is there but without all the Samsung additives.
Touchwiz is incredible on the note 4. Take it from someone who has one. I do admit the touchwiz on anything previous to the note 4 isn't very nice, though. Lots of bloatware and features that look nice on paper but you hardly ever use. But on the note 4, samsung has removed most of the useless features so what's left are pretty much only those that one way or another, note 4 users can utilize practically.

I fear for my Galaxy S5 and TouchWhizz Lollipop. It is already running slow under TouchWhizz-ed KitKat. I've read nothing but bad stories about Lollipop on the Nexus 6. :(
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2014I dont think Ive ever come across any review praising TouchWiz. The closest to an approval has... moreIt has so many features that touchwiz sometimes feels a little slow and stuttery even on high end software. Samsung has just done to much tweaks to plain android. Some are an improvement, some don't matter (and are therefor useless work and too much effort for updates) and some are generally disliked.
I dont think Ive ever come across any review praising TouchWiz. The closest to an approval has been indifference. What exactly is wrong with it? Is it just that it is not pretty? (I cant see it) Or is it also functionality? Or the layout? How does it compare to other UIs? Which one is best? Its an important matter - it is after all the UI - its what the user deals with, only that and all the time. Perhaps gsmarena wants to do a comparison review of UIs?
