Whenever there’s a new software announcement from Google, after the initial buzz dies down, there’s always a heated debated about how the new look and feel is going to translate to manufacturer’s custom skins. This year was no exception, especially since Google made of its biggest design overhaul to date with its material design aesthetic.

No manufacturer is more involved in that discussion than Samsung, as they court the most controversy when it comes to custom skins, as quite a few critics point out that they swing away from the android look and feel too much.

The boys over at Sammobile have a Galaxy S5 running a beta version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, although it isn’t the final version and will probably differ a fair bit from the version we’ll officially see on Samsung’s Galaxy line up, it still gives us a general look and feel of how Lollipop will look on Samsung’s current crop of smartphones.

This is probably the closest TouchWiz has looked to stock Android since its conception and we certainly aren’t complaining. Sammobile has compiled a list of what’s changed from the previous leaked build, you can check out a video of Lollipop in action and some screen grabs on their website.
