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

It’s 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 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 pros and cons of each manufacturer tweek to the Android User Interface.

Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S5 has one of the brightest and more cartoon-like user interfaces. It is considered one of the 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 than 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 features the phone gives, others don’t.

This phone has a great, smooth multi-tasking feature which makes it really user-friendly.

The user interface that Nexus has to know as Stock Android is unchanged from what Google has made the Android 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 Nexus 7. Since Google tweeked its design they will be differences between the two. The advantage 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 it is not cluttered with features that manufacturers try to put to have their own touch.
