No one is expecting Sony to change design its already pretty sleek albeit bezel department could be looked at. But they've got to do something about that archaic, mundane and stale UI of theirs.

It's probably the worst UI I've seen in awhile. When they change their UI, then I'll consider getting an Xperia phone.

Well it became third in the poll here on PA. I guess it gives a some kind of direction how much people like it. I haven't really heard anybody else hate it than the guys who enjoy Touchwiz. But obviously Sony won't go into that direction. They are for two completely different users.

IMO while Touchwiz and Xperia UI both aren't my favourites, I prefer Xperia UI to GS5/current Touchwiz. Sony should refresh it though, bit like LG did with G3.

I've never experienced a Sony phone in person but the UI doesn't look to bad. Leagues better than touchwiz. God that ui is just so awful.

They should make it like the PS4 interface. It would be 100 perfection IMO.

Yeah I hope this is a prototype for THEM. Cause this ain't gonna compete with the big boys around the corner.

It's stock android like ui + sony launcher (you can install google now launcher or anything else) + sony apps, which you can uninstall. Software isn't something unchangeable. Am I wrong?

Oh look, they replaced Chrome with the stock android browser (a fugly icon IMO)

That display looks AMOLEDish with a very reflective screen protector, they should put that kind of display in the Z3

Touchwiz is the Ugliest/Fugliest and laggiest UI in the world. My god, Every time i see it makes me wanna puke. Just remembering how ugly touchwiz is making me sick. Bye now, have to go to toilet for puking.

Don't feed the troll attention. Anything anti-Sony will hurt his feelings.

You ever heard the saying, "No matter how hot she is, somebody somewhere is tired of her s**t."? It's sadly the truth.... Even pretty girls get old, fat and grouchy. LOL

Why would you use any message other than hang out anyways? You didn't say much about TW?

One thing for sure this is still a prototype . Sony in the past 2 years is making a huge progress in their smart phones ever since they departed with Ericsson . Keep it up Sony .

Sony don't make UI for man-babies. So unfortunately you'll have to avoid their phones.

Or it's just you who love to mock other brand down? Because you have your own fav brand? I have a mid range phone and from the spec, there's nothing special, but it runs smooth than Sams's phone..

Idk how much Sams pays him. He is so underestimate other brand. For me Sony gives you the best phone, mostly. Timescape UI which is Sony currently use is one of the most light weight UI.

Couldn't care about UI, going to install Cyangenmod and get a near stock android experience. Almost all UIs are ugly compared to legit real android UI.

Touchwiz is really laggy. Wouldn't say it's unusable just a horrible excuse for a UI. Samsung still make phones that are great with a custom rom such as Cyangenmod.

The UI just so simple and easy to use. And it is light weight.
