    I heard that someone somewhere in china or something was using 2.1 on the moment and that it included touchwiz. I don't know if its true or not but I am interested in knowing what the actual touchwiz owners/users think of it. Do you like it? Don't you like it? Let me know please :)

    Pro:

    Very nice camera software
    BT/GPS/WIFI quick access from notifcation bar
    Black notification bar blends better with themes
    One tap of unlock button versus long press on galaxy

    Con:

    Lag, lag, lag
    No snap to grid on homescreen
    Don't like the way wallpapers were implemented
    Lag
    App drawer on side
    Non customizable faces on that cube thingy
    Lag
    Can't turn off stock messaging app notifications
    Name: Touchwiz sounds like Harry Potter was molesting Hermione.
    And last but not least, did I mention, LAG!?

    I am currently using panda home. Should I continue to use it, how much of an effect would touch wiz have on my phone?

    Touchwiz is the stock Home UI that is on some of the Samsung Android phones. It is not something you can add to your phone.

    Mostly it is a matter of asthetics. Touchwiz to me is not very visually pleasing. There are some functionallity issues too.

    I would stick with your home replacement if you like it.

    Pandahome makes the behold 2 much 4 times faster while keeping the best of touchwiz [ camera, quick access to gps, wifi, bluetooth]. I also like the sim card management software which is notably missing in stock android [even 2.1 in nexus ].

    There are things I like about touchwiz and things I don't. The calendar and contact app even the settings menu style I like. What they didn't to the android homescreen with adding the extra soft buttons I guess you would call them I don't like. I don't know if the camera app qualifies as touch wiz on the behold 2, but the omnia had an app that was almost exactly the same and it was a touch wiz phone too. If samsung wouldn't have limited the setting we could reach with their touch wiz menu I would have liked it even more. I guess I also Like the idea of samsung trying to make their phones more interesting that a normal android phone with just stock android. If they could get it working with out weighing down the phone to where it runs slow and buggy like I wouldn't mind it so much. I didn't even mind the home screen with the app drawer on the side or the being inside a cube when switching screens much, but the space taken up by the buttons at the bottom bothered me. having that on the middle screen would't be bad cause I put them there anyways on my stock middle home screen but the room on the other two pages would have been nice. Also instead of having the cube button they could have but that quick list button where it took you to a menu that 9 icons an put the cube as one of those selections along with the browser, contacts, dialer, and ect with were there anyways and saved the homescreen space all together. Doing both seemed pretty pointlessly redundant.

    I have heard and seen comments about the soft buttons on samsungs touchwiz taking up space on the screen bottom. In fact on a stock android ui that space is unusable by us. That is the area reserved and used by the app drawer handle. If samsung had not placed soft buttons there, when they moved the app drawer, it would most likely be unused space.

    @ OP, don't quote me on it, but I believe the touchwiz version you're referring to is completely different to what we have on the Behold 2

    It looks more like an Android notification bar. But I'd be willing to bet, bada looks a lot like android at the core.
