    Default Android L on Samsung S5

    I recently picked up the Samsung S5, and am wondering after Google I/O, how long of a wait should we expect until we recieve the Android L OS? And will it be pure Android or will Samsung continue with their Skin?

    No real news about it.. We can really only guess on when and also the details. My guess is Samsung will eventually get it out.. But I doubt soon.

    I have a feeling it will be out after Samsung releases the Note 4 with it.

    Downside to android updates. Waiting.

    Agree.

    My guess about 90 days after android L comes out. Now the carriers, that's a different story.

    Enough complaining about TouchWiz, if you don't like it don't use it.

    First Samsung has to add their stuff to it... than your phone carrier will add more to it and then it will be pushed out. It definitely will not be pure Android.

    No. Of Samsung ditches TouchWiz, I ain't update or get the phone. If they go stock android, I definitely won't get it. Stock android is dull and boring.

    I don't understand the touchwiz hate. Root your phone or domt buy Samsung if you don't like touch wiz.

    Why is it called Android L? What happened to the long string of candy/confections?

    "5 ouch wiz rums"? Do people not look at what they've typed?

    Guys is this true for L and will it be like this for the S5?

    [In Android L] ...you can even select the root of the SD card, giving apps full permission again to do whatever they want on the SD card.* This is being allowed because it’s the user making the choice, and will thus give the user the full permissions that they request.

    For your question it's because it has the worst reputation of all the manufacturer forks of android for optimization, bloat, and aesthetic appearance. Only the old Motoblur which no longer exists had an equally bad rep. Not bashing, just explaining.

    For your statement after that, I completely agree. Those who have an issue with it can replace it with a ROM or find another brand.

    Hi,

    Samsung may launch it for at least 8 months but for less than 1 month from its release there are going to be a lot of custom roms for the S5 with Android L___________ .


    Thanks
