Gosh, so ugly! It looks like Samsung just copied some Chinese OEM's UI, but added a bunch of break lines to the icons. And now, Samsung's UI will clash against Google's material design, which any app today is designed after, EVEN MORE! If I were one of the poor buyers of one of these phones, I'd definitely root this thing, and put something better than this ugly UI on there, getting a launcher wouldn't be enough.
I think the galaxy s8 will have android 7.1.1 Nougat, so it's likely Samsung will bring the new UI and features to other devices in the 7.1.1 update.

Minimalist "looks", maximised lag.
In 2012 the US had Obama
The UK was in EU

Samsung had S2
Except Samsung's TouchWiz brilliance none are any more.
Gotta give it to Samsung for keeping the consistency.

You just have to find it. My personal favourite is the 'Simple Black SB'. Unfortunately, you can't find it anymore as it had been deleted by the creator. But like I said, there are tons of pure black themes. You just have to find it.
Looks kinda Chinese to me.. Anyways better than the previous
Am I the only one that love the new look? The minimalistic look of the icon really goes well with the software navigation key. And if I don't like the look or get bored with it, I can always change the icon in Samsung's Theme Store
Ugly! It looks like an app icon on Nokia belle OS, change it, you still have time
Any news on themes? I hope there's a dark theme to go with the amoled. Not keen at all on the bright white backgrounds
Samsung should try to provide multiple icon sets, at least for their premium devices. This will suit a larger audience.
Designed by twelve years old kid, remainds me of symbian 3 anna style which was ugly too
