AnonD-130181, 04 Mar 2016It's amazing how close it's getting to WP UI!I was thinking exactly the same thing.
I guess Windows Phone users can take it as a complement when others start copying UI elements from their favourite mobile operating system.

It's actually the least efficient, dated UI, resource hoggin, filled with security holes, non- user friendly mobile OS out of the big three. But it's popular. Popular due to the large number of apps in its Play Store.
looks like cyanogenmod ;] it took few years when google realised that kondik made better looking ui than google itself ;]
adeelraj, 04 Mar 2016there is no major update after lollipop 5.0 simple man will not notice, heavy users will. 6.0 is more light than 5.0. All code was just cleaned and I felt that on my old device even though I got back to KitKat because it is the most advanced and light and speedy ROM. Marshmallow is just slightly heavier than KitKat, and with further optimisations can get better than KitKat.

That's why i dont ... morethis is the point 'material design = Ms paint' sure, design must be light and simple. And it is a trend. You will never understand codding and design combo. Better icons than Ms paint requires more space (it's only few KB) buy counted all icons will make a lot and OS will not be so light. So you must understand that only designer can't make OS good. If it will be beautiful it will be slow. Sure holo looked great but material design is something in the new level with animations and stuff. I can't imagine any newier UI which could exist.
I am a photographer and i love colors. This uni-color is so annoying to me. That's why i dont like touchwiz for one. The functions are getting better and better with every android version, but the design gets worse with every update..
They should hire some real designers when it comes to interface.
I want to see gradients and multi colored icons, not one color for everything. Looks like i have to root my next phone if it will run this version..
Material design = design made in ms paint lol

Oh quit the crying, people. Android is so far the best mobile OS in the world, and don't be surprised when it'll rule 85% of the mobile OS market share in 2019. It's way better than iOS, and obviously better than Windows. Maybe it copies features, but it does it well, and it doesn't matter, to be honest.

Firs... moreI wouldn't say Android is copying Windows phone, but Windows phone is a really nicely designed operating system, and it's no surprise you're seeing a bit of inspiration in rival operating systems from Windows phones.
Why does Google keep copying various parts of Windows Phone 8.1/10 into their Android OS? First the flat design, then the simple icons and now the Settings menu which looks like it was taken straight from W10.
