    See I don't get why Google has to make minor changes like these all the time that'll only confuse a less nerdy user. What was wrong with the old one? I hope it isn't done yet, because navigating backwards through the menus is not obvious at all.

    For the 4.2 interface, options at the bottom half of the circle is sometimes obscured by the finger. The 4.3 interface is much cleaner.

    How about they revert it back to the 4.1/4.0 interface. It was so much better and more functional.

    Outside of my Nexus 4, I haven't seen the Android 4.2 camera on another Android device yet. All of the OEMS use their own setup.

    Its on the newest CyanogenMod 4.2.2 build, Had it on my Note 2 and absolutely hated it. The TouchWiz camera is a million times better.

    I agree. It didn't feel intuitive at all.

    The S4 camera is one of the few things I miss since going onto CyanogenMod.

    android 4.2 needed a better camera UI, it was a bit messy.
    android 4.3's camera UI is great.

    although it is better than the 4.2's camera user interface, but the TouchWizard's camera user interface is by far the best camera user interface i have ever seen.

    Same here.

    It's better than what it is right now on 4.2 but not amazing IMO.
