If you think the Samsung's customised Android interface is a total mess with too many personalisation options, a new rumour might put your woes to rest. And change the opinion of hardcore iOS fanboys and girls.
According to a Korean news website, Samsung’s plotting a move that will simplify the Android software for its next major Galaxy phone (presumably the Samsung Galaxy S6), and produce a user experience that’s somewhat like stock Android.
An industry source of BusinessKorea claimed the South Korean multinational conglomerate would aim “to get rid of unnecessary functions and simplify [its] UI at the level of Google's Nexus 6”.
If there is any truth to this validity, there will be a massive difference in the user interface. As it is, if you compare the software of the likes of the Nexus 6 and a device like the Samsung Galaxy S5 or Galaxy Note 4, you’ll notice stark differences.

Samsung’s mobile devices come with its own TouchWiz user interface, which uncludes the ability to open multiple windows simultaneously, the pull down bar for quick settings, and bigger widgets for its My Magazine news reader feature. For all we know, these might not make it on the new UI.
There have been reports mentioning that Samsung will “start from scratch” in the creation of its Galaxy S6 but until now, there’s been no indication that it could be in reference to its software instead of its physical features.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is speculated to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in early March, so we won’t have to wait too long before we find out the truth.
