Samsung Galaxy S6 to get cleaner TouchWiz UI

15/01/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


A new report, courtesy of BusinessKorea, says Samsung will ‘make an extensive change’ to TouchWiz, citing ‘industry sources’.
Apparently the South Korean tech giant’s mobile division has been hard at work to make a number of improvements to the Android OS overlay.

One of the key improvements will be reducing the capacity of system memory, i.e. making TouchWiz feel much less bloaty on your device.

The article also suggests that Samsung wants to strengthen ‘core features’ and eliminate ‘unnecessary ones’, again signalling a move towards less bloatware and a cleaner UX.
One source was reported as saying: “We are aiming to get rid of unnecessary functions and simplify our UI at the level of Google’s Nexus 6.”

The Nexus 6 runs barebones Lollipop thanks to it being a Google-officiated product, a USP lauded by many droid loyalists who think OEM skins can often ruin the Android experience.

Running a clean, basic version of Android also means that the device will be closer to Google’s OS vision, and will take up less storage space on a device than one loaded with OEM bloatware.
