First photos of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pop up

First photos of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pop up
We've already seen Samsung's hottest device of late, the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy S4 flagships, running on Samsung's TouchWiz-y take on Android 5.0 Lollipop in an abundance of videos and screenshots. What's more, both of said handsets have already been graced with unofficial, bug-infested builds of stock Android 5.0 Lollipop. Well, it was high time that Samsung's arguably best mobile device to date, the Galaxy Note 4 S-Pen knight, got caught in the wild running its own Lollipop-TouchWiz concoction. And we have some pictures to prove this.

In the photos below, we can purportedly see a Note 4 phablet with a slightly-refreshed TouchWiz Nature UX 3.0, which has been slightly revamped in accordance to the Material Design and Android 5.0 Lollipop guidelines. Without a doubt, we're dealing with an early firmware build which is not intended for the wide public, yet it serves one pretty important purpose - it reminds us that the phablet will be among the first devices bearing the Samsung logo to be officially treated to the most recent variation of Google's popular mobile platform.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is said to receive its own build sometime in December, and we suppose that the Note 4 won't trail behind by a margin.

Looks more like TouchWiz than Android 5.0

Expect a heavy dosage of TouchWiz hogging up everything.

Of course it looks like Touchwiz. That's exactly what it is. Logic isn't & never will be one of your strong suits.

Stop being an idiot.

Being a poster with more than 4000 posts, and yet you expect Galaxy Note to have pure Android!

It's basic commonsense. Nobody can teach that.

Wait, he is ignorant but you are not by saying "Looks more like TouchWiz than Android 5.0"...

You know it's on the SAMSUNG Note 4, you know Samsung devices are made to have TouchWiz. I mean it's like saying HTC won't add Sense to their Android 5.0 Lollipop build.

C'mon, this is PURE tolling at it's finest. Even you can't argue that.

We've both frequented this site long enough. You know the idiot troll will find a way to argue it regardless of how stupid or illogical it may sound. His trolling is about as inevitable as the sun rising.

I never at once said anything about Samsung devices not being made to have TouchWiz. You're just spewing bs.

I am saying they should tone TouchWiz down and stop cluttering it up with so many useless features and menus.

Looks more like Samsung than Motorola.

Expect a heavy dosage of Samsung hogging up your Samsung device.

Hopefully, this time Touchwiz will be optimized and will even more extend the functionalities of stock Android v5.0

The lockscreen look nice with Material Design ~
But that notification area look same ...
I am sure they can still keep the old concept but they should change the colour to darker will be look better ~
+ some transparent between each quick settings control ~

The notification are was already Lollipop styled in Kitkat. They've used circle icons even before the Lollipop launch :)
So, I find no need for them to redesign the notification bar.

Not only would it look better, it will help battery life on AMOLED screens. Assuming they use "black" mostly.

Then go into dev options and speed them up, or turn them off.

Vanilla Android 5.0 looks more promising IMO. I love HTC, LG and Meizu UI. I also love TW because it packs tons of features but I noticed lately it becomes so cluttered. I'm considering to buy a Nexus device next year. BTW, iOS's crash = lag thus iPhone also lags. :3

I do believe that Touchwiz would be lot nicer with lollipop. I have a feeling (I might be wrong) that touchwiz has few lollipop characteristic in its current version already, So it would turn good hopefully.

I installed the test build of Lollipop on my S5 yesterday and, while still having the common Touchwiz look, runs really nicely.

Something is definitely wrong with Touchwiz and it's everything. They need a complete UI overhaul. Too much Tizen going on.

I can't wait for the Note 4 Lollipop update because of Art. Other than that it seems that Samsung phones won't benifit much from this update just as it was with KitKat. Most of the features from KitKat were already on the latest Samsung phones and the biggest change we seen was limiting SD function and glitches.

I almost threw my note 4 against the wall just trying to get the camera to focus. Definitely a faulty unit. Between that and the sluggish touchwiz I returned that thing and went nexus 6. Happy man.
