Upcoming Note 7 'Grace' UX beta vs TouchWiz on the Galaxy S7 (video)
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 04, 2016, 5:52 AM
While the new interface keeps the general shape and familiar form of TouchWiz, the icons have been smoothed out and made more consistent - a common complaint with Samsung's overlay - but there are also other changes, like unifying the Action Memo or S Note into one apps called simply Notes, or adding a blue light filter in the status bar toggles.
Galaxy S7. Keep in mind that this is still not a final iteration of the Note UX, so some features might be added or subtracted, but still, you will get a pretty good overview from the comparison video below.Until you wait for Project Grace to grace your handset, which won't happen before the Note 7 hits the shelves towards the end of the summer, you can preview all the changes that the beta version brings being compared to the current TouchWiz iteration on the

What a rubbish review. He's got the phones set up entirely differently. Even a 12 hr vs 24 hr clock and 2 minutes apart! . Different app icons in a different layout on the home screen. App drawer has one in A-Z and the other seems to be personalised order, so you cannot compare like with like. He flicks screens back and forth. He calls the settings menu childish. I gave up then. What a waste of an opportunity.

Apple days are over now, who knows the next BlackBerry will be Apple or Microsoft.

I'm confused. Stock apps aren't really that different but he says the old one is "difficult" to use. As for quick settings, there is a button that drops it down further instead of swiping left to access the rest of the quicksettings items. He says cartoonish icons but that's already easily solved via theme manager. Is it me or does he seem a little bias against the TW?

I like how this youtuber reviews a lot of phones but he doesn't actually have that much knowledge. He says that your phone will be faster thanks to the "new" Device Maintenance option when really it's the same as the Smart Manager app but with a different interface. In his other videos he also says that HDR is just a marketing trick by Samsung.... Still like this guy though, his voice and mannerisms are entertaining haha.

What he did with the toggle screen, you can do that now with Android 6 on the Note 5. That isn't new.
