With the Galaxy S6, Samsung promised that it was scaling down the blue-hued atrocities on its TouchWiz Android overlay. It kept its promise, more or less.
For what it’s worth, I actually really like the new version of TouchWiz. It’s something I’d consider using every day, and I’ve already found wallpapers and widgets to make it all look nice. The only bummer is that it doesn’t have Google Now embedded on its far-left Home screen, like the Google Launcher (you can turn off Flipboard on the left screen, but you can't replace it). Instead, you get to Google Now by long-pressing the home button.
Samsung adding in a new Themes feature this time around, and though I won’t touch upon it in this writeup, I will be using one over the weekend to see what life with a dedicated Samsung theme is really like.
For now, here are my initial impressions of Samsung’s newly revamped user interface. It’s friendly, easy to use, and still blue, but it’s so much better than it’s ever been. The fact that it runs Android Lollipop certainly helps, too.
