Like the Galaxy Note 3 and S4 lock screen? Get it as a Play Store app for any Android 4.x phone
If you've been jonesing to get a hold on the light, ripple and ink lock screen effects that come with Samsung's latest Galaxy flagships, but don't have the actual phones like Note 3 or Galaxy S4, you need to relax now.

An XDA-Devs member has extracted Samsung's lock screen, packaged it in the form of a simple app called "Galaxy S4 Lockscreen" over at the Play Store, and put it out for owners of any Android device running 4.0 ICS and above. The kicker - you don't even have to be rooted to install Samsung's lock screen now, so grab the app from the source link below if you are interested.

I think it's just me, but I prefer stock android, it looks professional, touchwiz make the phones' GUI look kinda childish IMHO.

This news will be useful for Samsung Fans that don't have an Samsung Flagship phone with them. While the Samsung Jealous Haters will definitely Troll here.
