Very androidy and a bit like iOS6 with the home screen icons and left swipe for searchbar, but the searchbar feature is quite interesting. Map feature (looks just like Google Maps?) is quite nice too. Would be nice if the UI has a refreshing look that stands apart from the other OS.
Overall can't see the appeal in this OS yet, but I hope it continues to improve and add some innovative features and UI tweaks to it.

Let's just say it's an LG Optimus L5 with a faster clock speed and with Firefox OS in it.
