New clock and calendar icons on TouchWiz show you the correct time and date

New clock and calendar icons on TouchWiz show you the correct time and date
While iOS users aren't going to get excited about this (because the feature we are about to describe is already part of the OS and has been since day one), the newly revised TouchWiz clock and calendar (S Planner) icons on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge show the real time and date. Perhaps this doesn't make you jump off your chair and scream "Hooray!," but surely there are quite a few of you out there who are thrilled with this new feature.

If you plan on staring at the clock expecting a sweeping second hand, forget it. The clock changes time only when the screen is unlocked. Are these new icons responsible for the 20 million in orders that Samsung has received for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge? Uh, no. But it does show the lengths to which Sammy was willing to go to improve TouchWiz.

Samsung has been criticized in the last few years for TouchWiz. Many have complained about the cartoon-like look of the icons, something that Samsung has done away with this year.
