New Samsung infographic shows how intuitive TouchWiz UI is on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge

New Samsung infographic shows how intuitive TouchWiz UI is on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge
Available in select markets since April 10, Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge represent a new beginning for the company not just when it comes to hardware design, but also when it comes to software. Samsung enhanced its often-criticized TouchWiz UI, trying to eliminate unnecessary features and keep just the essential ones.

To show the world just how intuitive and streamlined the revamped interface is, Samsung today posted an infographic that presents the highlights of TouchWiz UI, plus some of the exclusive features that Galaxy S6 edge users get to enjoy.

The infographic mentions the "bright and simple colors" of TouchWiz UI, the Smart Manager, the easy camera controls, and Samsung's very own Themes (which enable users to personalize the look of the S6, software-wise). At the end, Samsung shows the People Edge and Information Ticker of the Galaxy S6 edge, which - as you probably already know - sports a dual-curve display.

Of course, both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge come with much more than what the new TouchWiz UI has to offer. To check out the two handsets in detail, feel free to read our Galaxy S6 review and our Galaxy S6 edge review.

The menial minority that frequent mobile tech sites like this, might make their disparaging opinions the most vocal, but the truth is, the vast majority love the familiar interface and some of the intuitive proprietary features of the TouchWiz UI; they choose it over any other stock or OEM based proprietary software because they like the aesthetics and the brand representation that comes with it.

Most of the touchwiz haters are found on tech websites and blogs, because its easy to talk bad about it and defend their favourite brand. They probably use samsung phones as their main phone, or they probably never used a samsung phone before, but hey nobody will know. In reality, most people dont care about the Ui of any phone manufacturers, all they care about is the look of the phone, the brand, the camera and price.

I think Samsung has really changed quite a bit with Touchwiz to appeal to a wider spectrum of users. Especially with the S4, there were too many 'features' that got in the way and were never used, which only limited the true power of the phone. I personally flashed CM on my S4 a year ago and never looked back. I don't recommend it to everyone and there's a lot of ppl who prefer a skinned version, but I think the new TW has finally struck a proper balance between lightness and extra features.

Old touchwiz is s**t and everyone I know says the same. If the internet is vocal about it and so are professional reviewers then something isn't right. You are the fanboy that just cant accept it. I'm gonna buy the S6 this weekend most likely because the S6 annihilates every phone out there but the old touchwiz is horrendous. The new one isn't so bad but I'm more of a stock guy.

I like features, the heck is with featureless stock.

Everyone likes features lol. The difference is between useful features and bloat. Take TW on the S4 for example: Who actually ordered a physical photo album through the dedicated app? Who actually uses the Samsung app store and myriad of related apps? People like stock because they can download what they want from the Play Store (better apps) and do away with things they don't need, resulting in an overall zippier phone. There's obvs some features in TW and other skins that aren't baked in android (yet) like multiscreen, but there's a trade off for everything. Each to his own.

I hope so.....I've seen several articles that states it will and Samsung has done it in the past with updates. However, I could be a while before we see it. -Note 4 user who really wants the new touchwiz.

I am an early adoptor, and find that a few important features have been either removed or omitted without any infomation. In the Gallery , under more options, I cannot see the option to 'View content to display' by which I could view the cloud based storage options like Picaso, and Dropbox. Its now missing..... Making the touchwiz light does not mean, removing important features which Samsung fans are used to...

People hate touchwizz because its all crap and lags as hell! I bought S6 and was so naive that the lag is gone. Animations stutter, recent apps lags as hell. And thats for a 1 week old phone thats supposed to be the best on themarket? Hell no. Even the best processor and fastest memory cant help this buggy software. Galaxies always have best specs but I dont care as long as an 800$ dollar phone cant work properly! And battery life sucks! Piece of crap.

go try yourself. maybe I am exaggerating but this pointless QHD display drains battery as hell with higher brightness and lag is still visible. thats unaxeptable for me. maybe i am just spoiled by lag free performance of nexus 5 and one m7 which I owed before. or I got faulty unit.

Try it in store, which is there always on and everyone messing with the phone. Still fast and stutter-free. So dunno what you did to yours but thats on you only

Having an S6, I can vouch that you're either a liar or your hardware unit or the software is suffering from abnormal issues. But my hunch is that you're making this all up.
