Don't like:Samsung's TouchWiz interface used to elicit groans; we weren't fans of the 2.0 interface with its impossible-to-ignore widgets tray that's still found in smarthpones of yesteryear like the Windows Mobile-run Samsung Omnia II.
However, Samsung has smoothed and finessed the TouchWiz 3.0, at least in terms of Android. On the Samsung Fascinate, for instance, TouchWiz 3.0 ditches the intrusive, pop-out widget tray and adds new social networking widgets. It also uses a grid layout that makes it easy to view applications across multiple, swipable pages. The stock Android phone, on the other hand, requires you to scroll up and down to see apps--albeit using a neat "box" metaphor.) While TouchWiz is much improved, we still prefer the snappier, more polished HTC Sense.
