In addition to new internals, the Samsung Galaxy S III features an all-new version of TouchWiz. So far, Samsung hasn't branded it with a number (admittedly, I've been calling it TouchWiz 5 all day despite that), but it offers a ton of new improvements as a result of Ice Cream Sandwich running in the background. Widgets receive a dedicated spot, messaging has received some improvements, and the app structure is different, just to name a few.

Cesario Brito Jr. As for the question, I pick sense or stock. The Touchwiz on the GS3 looks the same as gingerbread with a little ICS on top. Very disappointing.

Cesario Brito Jr. David, your act is old and boring already. Go climb a tree or something.

Landon Aveling
Landon Aveling I hate TouchWiz. Sense isn't a lot better. If I can't get vanilla Android, I can best tolerate the not-Blur that Motorola uses. I just wish they'd unlock the bootloaders.

Nick Carletta
Nick Carletta Stock for sure especially for ICS.
Alex Caza
Alex Caza Have to agree with Stock. Since I got my captivate, I've always looked for ROMs with Stock UI. Never liked touchwiz, it's always been over done. An attempt at iOS, but it still looks like it was designed by engineers.
Joseph Dianexis Chavez

Tim Moore Stock. Especially with ICS. No need for UI's anymore with that. The more phone companies or carriers add the more issues you can have. Never had trouble with my Nexus One or Galaxy Nexus.
