Simpler and lighter. I hope Samsung will overhaul its TouchWiz. Enough of the cartoonish looks and heavy skinning. All these aside, the newest flagship is nearly flawless. Can't wait for a head to head review bet. S7 Edge and G5

This has been stated long ago but many people seem to overlook this, including reviewers/critics. It's been stated clearly that there is a setting that allows you to change the UI to include an app drawer.
I hope that those critics will revisit their reviews to amend the statement that there is no app drawer so that it doesn't push away potential G5 customers.
Finally! App drawer come back! Did'nt know there has the setting for this....
Ok I'm confused. So it is unable to customize the app drawer with your review unit ? Because there's nowhere you stated about that.
Just got a G3 (yup, two year old model) as a backup whilst Note 4 is in repair. The LG UX is superb, full of useful features such as being able to customize the buttons and layout of the controls at the base of the display. IE, Home, Back, Tasks etc. You can add extra controls, such as Show/Hide Notifications, so useful as it saves having to reach to the top of the display to pull down the notification panel, which is difficult on a large screen.
Phone is fast and responsive too, so this bodes well for the G5 being it is more recent.
Nice going LG for listening to feedback and bringing back the option of an app drawer without needing to use a 3rd party launcher. Hopefully all the reviews will be updated to reflect this as it was one of the major criticisms.
They are also known for ui inconsistency as samsung but samsungs ui on older phones is pretty bearable more than lgs. They want to be apple but fail at this. Apple deceives their customers by updates and all they do is update the UI of the phone rather than add features on older devices
