Phone makers should start looking at fan-concept-designs, sometimes those renders look better than the actual thing.

Samsung new Touchwiz is basically Windows Phone largest Tiles. Samsung is now a Tiled OS, no more Icons, I don't see how anyone with any self respect could keep buying these imitation of others products. Im sure the hardware will be very impressive, but the software is typical Samsung, imitate the next best thing.

Live Tiles are beautiful, elegant and productive, that is why Samsung has moved from Icons and jumped onto the Tile train. Also Windows Phone Live Tiles existed before Flipboard.

OMG, why didn't you yell before? If you think so, then why didn't you bother about this TouchWiz version? It has notification bar, just like others! It has app menu, just like others! It has widgets, just like others! And so on... That is so shameful they copied all this stuff. I should die, wao...

You're dead wrong. Icons are still there like they have always been.

They scared of that iphone 6 coming in June. Sammy won't have as much time on the market this year without a new iphone. It also sounds like apple will have a phablet waiting for the note 4. It's over Sammy!

Yeah, i doubt a phablet from Apple is something Samsung should worry about. it'll just be like an iPad Unless Apple copies Samsung's Multiwindow feature.

Well this guy has flopped with his predictions so many times now that you have to take his word with a hand full of salt. Also predicting before or after mwc as a release date is something anyone can make.
