Cell Phone Manufacturers Leave Their Mark on the Android User Interface

What alterations are made to Android phones to help cell phone manufacturers leave their mark on them.

Its no secret that when you switch from different Android phones that you notice that the user interface is a bit different. Whether it be different in color, in the icons, or in the customization capabilities. Some phones are more cluttered like with the Samsung Galaxy S5 and others are a bit more simple like the Nexus 5. Wondering which phone is right for you? iFixScreens will give you all the pro's and con's to each manufacturers tweek to the Android User Interface.

Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S5 has one of the brightest and more cartoon like user interface. It is considered one of the more easier user interfaces to use. The Samsung Galaxy S5 runs TouchWiz which gives you a much brighter and richer design. Even though TouchWiz is a big pro to the user interface, all you can pretty much customize is the font and wallpaper. Other then that, it is not customizable. Besides the color and design factor Samsung has a tendency of packing a relatively large amount of features which gives it the "clutter" feeling. Some people love all the feature the phone gives, others don't.

The LG G3 has a more subtle and sophisticated design. The biggest advantage to this phone and user interface is that you can customize a lot more compared to its competitors such as the Samsung Galaxy S5. You can customize the control screen, the home screen, the animation or even when you want the phone to lock or unlock. This phone has a great, smooth multi-tasking feature which makes it really user friendly.

Nexus 5

The user interface that the Nexus has know as Stock Android is unchanged from what Google has made the Android to be.  The phone runs KitKat and even though the user interface is unchanged they can vary from different phones for example the Nexus 5 and and Nexus 7. Since Google tweeked its design they will be different between the two. The advanatage to having this phone is that it gives you all the features that Google intended the OS to be, it has the original design made for the Android, as well as the fact that is is not cluttered with features that manufactuers  try to put to have their own touch.

HTC One M8

HTC named their user interface HTC Sense, which gives you some customization capabilities by being able to chose between different color schemes and fonts. Some believe it is very important to be able to chose your own color preference and fonts whereas others believe it is not a big deal. The HTC Sense is also known for Blinkfeed, which keeps all your social media updates on your home screen. If you are a person who is always checking their news feed whether it be Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram this user interface is for you!

Our Testimonials

Let's Sea What Some Have To Say

  Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out. "

  My husband and I just got both of our iPhones repaired at the Shirley location. We couldn't be more happy. Our iPhones look and feel brand new!! Both technicians, Ali and Marisol, are wonderful, knowledgeable, professional and caring! Being, that we walked into the store fifteen before eight we were afraid that we would have to leave our iPhones there until tomorrow. "

  My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour. "
