Lol "it has a few glitches but works better"?! Ridiculous fanboying detected. Cm is awesome but TW is great too it has alot of handy features. Me I'm on BNL9 lollipop and it's super smooth (no lag like in kitkat) and the ui is much more compelling. Basically it's a matter of priorities and taste. My priority is no glitches. Hence tw lollipop. When cm leaves alpha stage maybe I'll switch too.
As for GPE itt samsung already has at least beta GPE builds just wish they'd leak them already. Especially now when it's becoming clear that S5 GPE won't be happening.

The glitches I'm talking about wont effect the most people. As far as I know there are only two:

1. Bluetooth-Streaming isn't working properly.
2. Touchscreen isn't working in some games.

As I don't use Bluetooth-Streaming or any of the effected games I have no real issues and battery life is much better. This does not have anything todo with beeing a fanboy and I don't say TW is completely useless but I don't like it and I don't like how Samsung messed up Lillipop.

Well I could debate you about #2. Imho most people have at least candycrush or temple runner installed or some kind of game. I agree that samsung didn't put enough work in to Touchwiz Nature Ux. I guess this is version 3.5? Well unfortunately it seems they rushed lollipop implementing only a few superficial changes to tw. The S6 will get the "lollipop" TWNUX version 4. We got lollipop looking like kitkat They do this every time, I've been around since 2011 and was hoping they would embrace apple's approach of one ui for all devices. Instead they use software tricks as selling points for new devices. By superficially handicapping updates for previous phones. Oh well. The devices are great and so is the firmware (when it really comes down to it) so I'm not really complaining

It's not as "simple" as that, you have to port the whole ui or rom. Besides my point is that i think Samsung should copy apple's "one ui on all devices" policy just like they've copied everything else down to the home button.

Main reason I have bought this device is Galaxy S4 GPE; I thought the same for S5. I regret my decision now

Its not that straightforward for Samsung to port either, and not in their marketing strategy, besides they crammed in enough features already. Besides I'd rather do without, the gs3 missed out on KK because the ram simply wasn't enough, I tried the port from the LTE model and it was sloooow after a while. What I would like to see is a new theme, its in the right direction compared to the childish look of older devices but still overuse of color is present. And iOS can easily do this because they have a hand full of phones and a very basic os compared to android, especially Samsung's version of it. Most older phones had a home button of sort, tbh that's one of the reasons I like the s5, they're staying away from onscreen buttons for which devs don't support immersive mode half the time.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition may be released soon as the Galaxy S4 GPE disappeared from the Play Store. The only GPE device from Samsung has been gone for a while and will no longer be available in Google's store. Read more @ http://www.christiantoday.com/articl...tore/45802.htm
