Showdown: Comparing Android 5.0 Lollipop on Samsung, LG and HTC’s top phones

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 8:57PM EST

It’s been a long time coming, but many of the latest flagship Android devices have finally received their respective Lollipop updates. Android 5.0 Lollipop has some issues of its own, but there’s no question that the UI is a major visual improvement over its predecessor.

But not every Android 5.0 phone looks the same.

PhoneArena decided to compare the different versions of Lollipop by taking screenshots of four separate user interfaces: stock Android, Samsung’s TouchWiz, HTC’s Sense and LG’s UI (which doesn’t feature a weird moniker).

Each phone maker has made different design decisions, but as PhoneArena notes, there is a growing degree of “uniformity in the way their respective Android flavors look and even function.”

We’ve included a couple of the comparison shots below so that you can see the difference between each of the interfaces. It’s also worth noting that within the next few months, we’ll have been introduced to new flagships from all three of these vendors, which means the UI of the Galaxy S6, the HTC One M9 and the LG G4 are likely to receive significant overhauls.

For the rest of the images, be sure to check out PhoneArena’s slideshow.
