Cool [Q] Remove Samsung Emoji in favor of Google's Emoji

I have done a bunch of searching and even found a specific Galaxy S5 thread with instructions to rename the NotoEmoji.ttf to something different and name AndroidEmoji.ttf to the originial Noto file name then restart. Seems simple enough and should essentially trick the system into using the other emoji .ttf file. However, this is not the case.

Has anyone has any luck, the TouchWiz emoji's are ugly and their expressions seem to differ from Google's somewhat.

Thanks for any assistance in advance.
