The Galaxy S6 has not even seen the dusk yet but the Note 5 is already here to rule the dawn. That’s a bit quick for Samsung, right?. Samsung has launched its latest flagship device, the Galaxy Note 5, as the successor to its popular Note series phablets. Currently available in selected markets of US, the Note 5 is yet to hit the markets globally but the craze for the device is already over the roof.
Samsung flagships usually have a lot of craze and whenever a new Samsung flagship enter the market, people usually punish Google for its ported apps. Believe it or not, Android enthusiasts (Including ME) have this crazy little obsession of trying out the latest app ports and mods to enjoy the feel of the latest goodies in the Android world.

Albe95 of XDA has ported 20 apps from the Galaxy Note 5 to the Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge. Samsung hasn’t improved much of the TouchWiz interface except for a few tweaks and some awesome icons but the apps are worth a try. To install these apps, you need to be on the latest Android 5.1.1 OS on your Galaxy S6 and have root permissions as well.
