How would that even work😟? Anyone ever put thought into that... Like how would it override the google's new animations/transitions😧? Do you think this is where Samsung/touchwiz throws in the towel with updates and just goes straight to Tizen😨? I mean that is what they did with their galaxy gear2 went straight to tizen...😲
What do you guys think?😕

I was wondering about this too. The theming for Google apps seem to be pretty much self contained now, and touchwiz for the most part wouldn't be needed... even the new dialer looked beautiful ... as much as I love the colors of the S5, I kinda like Android's theming better...

I hope we can get a clean port over that's fast and smooth... or maybe Samsung could release the system dump that had the drivers without Touchwiz ... I know I know but a man can dream

What are you guys trying to get at? Samsung gets the android source code directly from Google. They can change anything and everything they wish. All the way down to lib files and .so binaries. TouchWiz is simply a launcher.

I wish it was just a launcher. Then settings/dialer/messaging /contacts wouldn't look like that... So unfortunately it's not just a launcher.... 😢

Yes. TouchWiz is just a launcher. The stuff you are seeing in those apps is not TouchWiz related. It is the Samsung THEME you are seeing. And they as stated before, they can do whatever they want with it. So long as Android in general remains open source.

Yeah. Just like when Samsung updated GB to ICS, there was hardly any difference. When you have a skin like TW on top of android, that's what you get. Even LG's UI. The multitasking UI doesn't look remotely similar to stock 4.4.

TouchWiz is just a launcher? lol, you can't be serious. TouchWiz is everywhere EVERYWHERE on Sammy phones, so to say it's "just a launcher" is just idiotic....
