HIMANSHU, 13 Jan 2015please talk sense, android is one of the best amongst all other developers. User since 2010What are you talking about? Did you read all the comments? I was talking about Samsung phones bloatware and touchwiz lag...
So, one step forward, two steps back. Seems like the S-series is gone.
Totally agree. Android a popular os, is on Samsung devices very laggy. I had a S5 and it was slower my iphone 6. And i am loving the speed of my Iphone 6

Original-Jamaican, 13 Jan 2015To CIPRIAN RUSE: The S5 firmware is larger than HTC M8 because the S5 clearly has more feat... moreI have the S5 and M8. The S5 sucks. Sorry, but not buying samy phones anymore. Screen is nice, but the rest of the crap on it just annoys me. If Samy can just give you the option to install crap wear to use then fine, otherwise why bother. Everything I have is disabled. Not uninstalled because you cant.
Why the tantrum about a light theme? It's not like the OLED panel will just deplete the battery because of that.
And if a panel is to limit the OS design freedom, how can that be good?
I thing that, even in a full white screen, a current AMOLED panel will not use more battery that an LCD one, so that's acceptable, wouldn't you say so?
SaeedKhani, 13 Jan 2015What r u smoking bro? HTC 's sence is one of the best in android worldLooks are prefference. And sense used to be a huge memory hog without even having many features to shore for it
Amir-senpai, 13 Jan 2015C'mon Samsung. Or should I say, Samesung?
anyways, touchwhiz is horrible, and I get random re... more"and I get random reboots with my Galaxy S4,"
.. which is either a rogue app or rogue service or a broken device! I've played with S4 and currently own an S5 and actually NEVER had random reboots.
The only time when I had random reboots was when I had a DOA S4! It rebooted evey few hours upto every day. This was on stock, non tampered non rooted state. Just using the included apps nothing else. Needles to say I got a refund in the end which was/is as stable as a rock.
Oh.. and guys, on the S4 and probably also S5. Stick to Android 4.4.2! It works stable, looks much better and doesn't ruin battery-life as much as lolipop does. In the mean HASSLE Google to release a black-themed lolipop (especially for amoled equipped devices) and force them to use common sense in their future decisions... IF they trully want to keep people like us as customers!
Sarper, 13 Jan 2015Touchwiz looks better than other Android skins. It looks better than HTC Sense and Sony Xperia... more.. yet odly enough Xperia has more black themes elements with their UI which would actually benefit AMOLEd screens more than Samsung's own ugly blueish/greenish theme which IMHO is fugly!
It's disgusting that a 2014/2015 a quad-core, FHD, massive memory equipped device hasn't got the PROPER theme support that even a Sony-Ericsson K750i had... let alone a 2012 Symbian device!
And NO don't reply to me that there's "plenty of launchers". A launcher doesn't "theme" the rest o/t device (like that ugly pull-down notifications screen).
I WANT BLACK on my SAMOLED screen!
Zahid Hasan, 13 Jan 2015It is just a preference. You may like sense but I like touchwhiz more. It's all just personal ... moreWhat's the use of having a buggy UI. Also how many features of TouchWiz would one use as a daily driver! Its nothing but a gimmicky UI....
