LG G4 versus Samsung Galaxy Note 4

LG's new flagship might just give Samsung's big-screen champion a run for its money.

Released in late 2014 and recently updated to Lollipop in many countries, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 still ranks among the best Android phones available. High-end specs, a gorgeous SuperAMOLED display and a camera almost as capable as the Galaxy S6 make the Note 4 a strong rival to any of the 2015 flagships we've seen thus far.

Inside TouchWiz themes on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge

40

Samsung's first step into the theming world is a lot of fun, but it needs to open up to the creators of the world ASAP.

Themes are apparently going to be a big deal this year, and with the popularity of the Galaxy lineup you can be sure Samsung's offerings are going to be a big part of that. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge launched with a new Theme engine and Theme Store baked right into TouchWiz, and with that comes the ability to make Samsung's frequently whined about UI look like just about anything. It's new, fun, and even though there are some issues with a couple of the themes the platform as a whole seems to work well.

Lets kick the tires together and see what your options are. Whether you're a theming pro or you've just stumbled across the setting on your phone for the first time, there's something here for everyone.
