    I don't get what you all are talking about. The Lollipop update gave Android a much more streamlined look, and apps took it seriously, implementing the design changes. Lollipop makes Android look much more mature. It seems as if Android Marshmallow might have a dark setting, but I won't be using it on my Nexus 5.

    I agree !!! I generally don't react as such but, when I switched from my LG Phone to a Galaxy, I did indeed feel "assaulted" ( as well as insulted ) I mean, what kind of ***** designs something like that for Adults ?!!! Just turning it on turned my stomach and made me angry. I've done nothing with my spare time since but try to come up with a way to rid my self of it. Does any one know of a Launcher that will take care of sub Menus ?! Dear God Please !!!

    Generally, I don't make these kind of strong statements.
    ========================================

    However, it is totally true. The aesthetics are really bad. But the real problem is not so much the choice of colors, but that there is no global setting like a theme or a skin. There is no way that I know of to change all people to say, light blue or light gold. You can change them - sort of but to change the color of a person you have to go a a persons text message, then select people and options and then select the pallet. In that pallet are a reasonable set of colors.

    In my strongly held opinion this is either really poor design, bad implementation or bad QC or all of the above. It is disappointing to me that I upgraded for some features and lost several aspects of control.

    Come on Google, you can do this. It ought to take a good programmer about a day to set the color settings at a global and at an individual level. I paid what $600 for this phone. Could you please take my money and pay someone to fix this. Please don't do what some other unmentioned companies do. Please.

    I agree 100%. My galaxy s4 updated yesterday to lollipop and I cannot believe how horrible everything looks.It is just amazing that these horrible colors were forced on us with no option to change them!! Just amazing!! I am color blind and at this point my wonderful phone is now pretty much useless to me. Many of the screens are now almost unreadable and even the ones I can read are horrible. I have never considered Apple because I don't really care for anything Apple but now I'm at a complete loss as what to do. I'm really really really annoyed that someone allowed this horribly ugly OS to be forced on us with no option to stay with 4.4. I have not been this annoyed and disturbed ever about any product in the past. Not only do the colors make the phone almost useless but I am also now seeing issues with bluetooth connection to my pebble watch and delays when changing songs that I never saw prior to the update. I loved my phone before the update to lollipop and I can honestly say that I now HATE my Samsung S4. This really sucks.

    I personally think lollipop looks cool I've got a Sony and it has 5+ themes to choose from and I can change colours on most things plus it's extremely responsive, but there's a but unfortunately the app drawer and notification bar is the worst, freaking Wifi icon is half the size of my thumb! My friend has a Samsung we compared the 2 phones Samsung wins the hideous award...

    Months and months down the road I just cannot get used to the ugliness either. I hate the glaring white of the background if I go into settings and the colors for contacts in both "contacts" and "messages" are horrible. Orange, orange orange...bleh. And, the mustard-green color? Guess what that looks like...Why is Lollipop so ugly?-material-design-match.png
