Turns out that there's plenty to improve about the Galaxy S III.
Samsung's Galaxy S IV reveal is now just days away. While leaks about Samsung's anticipated handset are abundant, nothing is set in stone until Samsung announces it on stage. On Friday, the Ars editors put together a wish list of half a dozen improvements that we hope Samsung makes to the phone. We also asked you what you wanted, and you responded loud and clear. Here are half a dozen recommendations from our esteemed Ars readership that Samsung could use to improve to its newest flagship phone.
1) Tone down TouchWiz
OEM-produced skins for Android can be a mixed bag. At their best, they can add features to Android that it doesn't yet include. At their worst, they replace perfectly good things from stock Android with versions that don't work as well. More than one of you wanted Samsung to use a lighter touch with its TouchWiz skin.
"Tone down Touchwiz and rip out much of what doesn't work," said Ars commenter dfavro. "Do an Apple and make this the 'refinement' generation. Get rid of Kies, Allshare Cast, S-voice, and all the Hubs that no one uses unless there's a legitimate improvement over stock. There are too many features on my [Galaxy] Note that seem, well, half-baked would be charitable."
