Android L On Galaxy S5!

gsmarena_001 (1)Samsung Galaxy S5 is still the OEMs flagship device and this time around Samsung is facing pressure from everyone regarding their lousy approach to Android updates.

SamMobile has got an image from Samsung which is an early leaked build and the aim was to see how far and wide Samsung has gone to abide by the material design guidelines – and as it turns out – everything looks just the same. Yes, Samsung keeps its TouchWiz UI ahead of all and it is really hard to see Material Design in action over here.

gsmarena_003The lockscreen does see the new notifications but everything else is just the same – animations aren’t working yet, the “sense of depth” that Google spoke about is yet to be seen from TouchWiz. Initial responses from S5 owners also depict the same amount of dissatisfaction for this.

While it’s great to see Samsung work well to stay on the dates, we hope Samsung unleashes all theyve got to offer very soon!
