Samsung is the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, and there’s no doubt the company produces decent flagship devices, but there’s one thing which many people dislike: TouchWiz UI. Samsung tends to add several features and bloatware on its devices, which affects the performance of the devices in a negative manner, but it seems things are about to change soon.
We’ve already heard that Samsung is trying to make Galaxy S6 software less bloated, and according to a new report from SamMobile, Samsung is reportedly cutting down on add-on features which can work as downloadable apps. This way, people who the apps will be able to download them from the App Store, making it less bloated overall.
“It has been reported that Samsung is working on optimizing its software for the Galaxy S6 to near-Nexus levels, and we now have exclusive info that the company is removing every add-on feature that can be downloaded as an application, and slimming down the software by a wide margin in the process,” SamMobile said.
There’s no word about the features the Korean OEM plans to remove, but it appears that apps like Story Album, S Translator, or even S Voice will be available as downloadable apps.
It remains to be seen what Samsung plans to do with the TouchWiz UI in its upcoming flagship device, but we’ll update you as soon as we hear more.
