TouchWiz UI

The reason why Samsung took so much time to release the Android 5.0.1 to its users is that, Samsung has been upto alot of changes in the user interface of Stock Android 5.01 and it has brought up many changes, that’s why the roll out is taking a lot of time, Although this new update isn’t going to be exactly like the stock Android 5.0 lollipop, you will see alot of changes in the Touchwiz, but it wont give you a look of completely new operating system, but still the amendments in the stock Android 5.0 has made it look really better.
