I don't see the big deal about Touchwiz. You click an Icon and it Launches. You flick a page and get more Icons. You drag Icons around. You add Widgets.
What is most annoying (and I'm not sure if I would call it TouchWiz). Is the Settings stuff. The Quick Menus are not as Nice as HTC. Nor is all of Settings.
They added this layer of Icons above it with rather generic names and it's hard to find the setting you want. Certainly annoying but not a deal breaker.
And if you like Blink Feed nothing comes quite close to that.
You can run Sense 6 with Blink Feed on any KitKat device. However dynamic Icons (like Unread Email Count Bubble) does not update.
It runs absolutely perfect other than this issue and installs very cleanly. If they can fix that issue I'll probably run it.
You can also run other launchers as well.
It has no effect on Settings and Quick Settings which isn't technically "Sense 6" but is part of the HTC way of doing stuff and closer to AOSP.
Email looks and feels very much like HTC. As well as contacts. But the Phone UI is goofy. Prefer HTC on the Phone.
I think some people label "TouchWiz" as all customizations the Samsung does and "Sense 6" everything HTC does.
That argument I can understand. And I prefer HTC overall package.
But the launcher itself is such a small piece of the whole package. And technically Touchwiz is just the launcher.
