Samsung's new TouchWiz vs HTC Sense UI 7 comparison results: here is the winner!

Apart from showing us their newest flagship phones, Samsung and HTC also introduced the newest renditions of their user interfaces - respectively, the newest TouchWiz and Sense 7 UI. It's so hard to give an definite answer to this question - after all, it's a subjective type of preference, so each and every user has to decide themselves. 

Both Sense UI and TouchWiz have their own strengths and weaknesses - Sense UI is a boasts slightly less features and is a bit lighter, while TouchWiz is still among the most functional and feature-rich once out there.

Some time ago, we decided to ask you which one you like better, the new TouchWiz or Sense UI 7. Well, we have the results here and according to them, HTC's UI has attracted more fans to its cause while TouchWiz remains second. Sense 7 wins by a pretty small margin, mind you - 1,528 voters (51.26%) have claimed that it's a better solution than Samsung's offering, which got 1,453 votes (48.74%). 

The results show us that while Samsung is definitely on the right path with slimming TouchWiz down and making it more streamlined than before, it still misses the ingredient that makes HTC's UI more appealing to Android aficionados. Regardless, Samsung really showed that it can improve its products in the right direction, TouchWiz included. It will be pretty curious to procure a similar comparison a year from now and see what the status quo will be at the time.

Which one is better - Samsung's new TouchWiz UI or HTC's Sense 7 UI?

Yup ofcourse. I am 1 in those 100 million people who fell in love with the smplicity of the fantastic MIUI 6. As far as the hardware and design is concerned, the s6 edge is unbeatable at the moment.

i would do the same. Sense is better than TW, but then i still prefer Zen UI, vanilla Android or iOS UI.

for me touchwiz is better then Sense ui . Htc's ui is kinda messy to my taste touchwiz seems somewhat light Lollipop Stock is best and XperiaUI for kitkat

I just went from the M8 to the Edge & the UI sucks! Everything is so counterintuitive. Can't even set up shortcuts so I can get to my apps

Yes. HTC Sense is much better and more beautiful and has lots of great themes

I would choose the UI closer to stock Android and there it is. Sense 7. But it doesn't mean that Touchwiz is bad.

just the name of the UI of samsung is so shameful.. TouchWiz? as in Touch Wizard? LOL! whay not even think of an appealing name.

You couldn't demonstrate that by creating the best username. "amasog" sounds like names called to frighten children. Touchwiz is the best UI to me. Especially when it comes to running different application simultaneously on the screen light with my note 4.

I am loving the Sony lolipop UI, fixes the issues I had with the Sony UI.

Anything is better than LG's. LG had something good going with Kitkat, then the Lollipop one f**ked it over, imo.

No way I can go with Sense UI (although it is slightly faster than Touchwiz) .. it's either Asus Zen UI / Sony TimeScape UI / Samsung Touchwiz UI ..

While I still think overall HTC Sense UI looks better, is more clean, and is still more stable. You can't deny the huge improvements that Samsung has done with the new Touchwiz. I hope they continue this trend and make a brand new looking Touchwiz for the Note 5 that will also match or even be more appealing looking than Sense is.

it's not huge improvement i think. More vanilla, less TW. the problem is TW itself, the less it is, the better it would be.

This only shows that more people prefer design over usefulness.

Sony's UI for me...

Sense is faster and more beautiful but TouchWiz has more functionality.

Honestly, i prefer TouchWiz, although i don't like it that much, I don't like Sense all that much either. if i were boiled down to a Favorite UI, it would have to be Lenovo's VIBE UI it's simple, easy, and highly fluid, best part is that it has zero effect on device performance. sadly, although Lenovo's phones are good, the company lacks new OS updates, their newest flagship is still 4.4, and although they have announced a lollipop phone with specs to match even the S6 or G4, they remain a bit slow as a company in the smartphone market.

That origami theme on m9 is so sick. I'm in love with it
