Samsung Galaxy S5 release needs TouchWiz revamp

Hearing about the Samsung Galaxy S5 is nothing new, even if it is still 6 months away, or so we thought. The reason we say this is because there are now rumors suggesting the release of the S5 could be brought forward from April to February. We have to wonder why Samsung would bring the release of their flagship forward by two months?

With sales of the Galaxy S4 not as impressive as Samsung would have hoped, it was obvious talk about the S5 would become a hot topic, as people look ahead to some of the radical changes we can expect. However, hearing of its release being brought forward is a shock and to some seems like desperation.

According to a recent article from Korean news site Naver, the Galaxy S5 unveil will be in January, with its worldwide release being the following month. However, we have a hard time believing this, as the S4 would only be 10 months old — something that would not go down well with those who upgraded to the S4.

While it is all very well looking at some of the latest Samsung Galaxy S5 spec rumors, which include a 64-bit Octa-core Exynos processor, it is the software that needs the most attention.

It seems that several Droid Life readers are more concerned about Samsung making improvements to TouchWiz. Many of them agree that a revamp is needed because the S4 with its top specs shows the current iteration is a joke. Many of them prefer HTC’s Sense UI, which is a kick in the teeth for Samsung.

However, if this is too much of a worry for you, then you can opt for the Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Edition instead?

Do you think it is more important for Samsung to address the TouchWiz issues first, then think about the Galaxy S5 specs and radical design change?
