It definitely feels good to see smartphone manufacturers preparing the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for their devices. Earlier, we saw several screenshots of the HTC One (M8) running on the latest Android Lollipop version based on HTC Sense 6.0 UI and now, thanks to Sammobile, say hello to an in-depth look of how Lollipop looks on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with TouchWiz.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 may be last year’s flagship phablet from the Korean company, but it looks like it will be getting a Lollipop treat too. As you can see from the screenshots, the new interface looks very different from Android KitKat on the Note 3, but it still looks familiar because Samsung has ported over several design found on the Galaxy S5 like the Quick Settings menu for example.
Since it’s TouchWiz and Samsung wants to stand out from stock Android, the green elements of Android Lollipop have been replaced with the company’s signature blue colour. According to Sammobile, the entire interface and new animations are smoother than before. There is also a new system-wide font, new icon colours in Settings, and a better overall look and feel.
Let’s just hope that this will speed things up on the Galaxy Note 3 because my one year old phone is starting to lag so badly, I’ve already given up on it. Check out Sammobile for more screenshots and details.
