Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Android 5.0 Lollipop TouchWiz

Late last month we got a sneak peek at the Samsung Galaxy S5 running a leaked Android 5.0 Lollipop build and today, the folks at SamMobile are back yet again, this time giving us a look at Google’s latest update as it runs on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Really, there’s not too much here we haven’t already seen in the previous Galaxy S5 video, but for those curious to see how Samsung has butchered tailored the OS to fit on the big screen, including adding their new flavor of TouchWiz into the mix. Check out the video below.

Before any critiques can be made, it’s important to remind yourself that, again, this is an early version of Samsung’s software running on the Note 3. That being said, we’re not too enthusiastic about how Samsung hasn’t — at least at this point — adhered to Google’s new Material design guidelines but then again, this is Samsung we’re talking about here. They could be on the right track in terms of color scheme, but overall the OS seems dull and lifeless with none of the fancy animations we’ve come to expect from Lollipop.

No word on when a Android 5.0 rollout could begin, but given the excitement over the biggest Android update ever, we imagine Samsung wont be dragging their feet.
