TouchWiz is anything but boring. it offers many things that one would need to root a phone to do (customizable toggles on the status bar pull down for one) but also gives the neat extra of some of Apple's past skeuomorphisms (S Barometer, S Notes, Samsung Music, S Voice) with a nice mix of neat widgets (the Accuweather widget with the changing nature scenery). the lock screen water ripple or light effect, the live nature wallpaper that changes with the weather. all things i have come to know and love about Samsung phones and phablets. it combined my love of tech as well as nature and a perfect 3-D high res theme that really took advantage of the Super AMOLED screen's use of color and brightness and strong blacks. and now everyone is wanting to revert to the late 1990s and AOL look again. sad. and worse yet, even if people like the OPTION of keeping what they have, once a part of Android is having choice, now everyone wants to have Google pull an Apple and force EVERY phone manufacturer to conform to the same ugly flat design trend that is running amok in tech lately. where's the choice? first Google wants everyone to lose SD Cards and removable batteries, another past Android exclusive, and now everyone bows to Google making it look boring, flat, colorless, and thin. perhaps you should have iPhones?
