    So as most of us already know, it's rumored Sammy is optimizing TW for the release of the GS6. That being said, what features would you want kept in TW. For me, as a Note 4 owner, this would be my keep list :

    - All SPen features
    - Multiwindow/multitasking features
    - Direct Call
    - Smart Stay
    - Smart Alert
    - Swipe left/right for message/call
    - Immersive mode for stock apps

    Don't forget WiFi calling, altough it's not TW exclusive, it came in handy on my Note 4 when I had to visit the hospital which had no cell signal but free Wifi.

    Private Mode is also a keeper.

    Most things. I don't have a problem with it. The things I don't like I don't use or disable but I find a lot of the features useful.I'm missing them now that I have my iphone:(

    Anyway next monday I shall reaquaint myself with touchwiz on a phone.:D

    The things I miss most are:

    Palm swype to capture
    swipe left or right to text/call
    S planner full screen widget
    Notification toggles (modifiable)
    Increased screen sensitivity(wear with gloves)
    Mini notification when getting incoming calls

    Note Line:

    S-Pen
    Smart Stay
    Multi-Window
    Quick Auto-Focus

    S Line:
    Smart Stay
    Quick Auto-Focus
    Floating Video Screen

    Lay this over stock android... and we have a winner for me.

    My hope is that OEM take advantage of the OEM partition that Google has implemented so we can uninstall the ever growing list of apps that come preinstalled and grow with every carrier update.

    I never really used any of the touchwiz features so I would really like to see a whole revamp of the skin. Ideally, I'd rather just have stock lollipop but we all know Samsung wouldn't be so kind to do that.

    For me Samsung can keep or add all the features that adds value. They just need to optimize TW to use less resources and make it a little more responsive.
