Samsung Galaxy S7 release may bring TouchWiz refinement
In 2015 we saw Samsung please many of its sternest critics with the launch of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge due to the handsets more premium design. One area the company still comes in for some criticism is its Android overlay, but the Samsung Galaxy S7 release may bring some TouchWiz refinement.
Samsung has improved its operating system this year in the terms of scaling down the bulkiness of its TouchWiz OS, but for many Android purists it is still too obtrusive. The rumour mill surrounding the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is clicking into gear with the handset expected to arrive in February, and now there is talk that Samsung is teaming up with Google to make its software sleeker.
It is being claimed that the two companies are working together to provide a “non-delayed operating experience” with “greater fluency than iOS”. No exact timescale is being given but you would have thought that Samsung would want the work be ready for the launch of its next flagship, the S7.
If Google engineers that know the Android operating system inside out get to work with Samsung they would surely be able to provide the best optimizations for TouchWiz. There will still be some that would prefer Samsung to ditch TouchWiz entirely and offer users a standard version of Android, but others like things such as Multi Window and Smart Manager.
Would you prefer Samsung to ditch TouchWiz for the Galaxy S7?
