Advantages of having a stock android UI

Here are some of the perks of having a stock UI. Firstly, the stock UI is simply beautiful and very much acceptable if not desirable to many users which is characterized by minimal design and stock like appearance.

This is not the case for other manufactures using custom UI as they require programming their own version of upgrades which is relevant to their skin and UI. Many users have complaints of delay in upgrades or even failure to receive updates in device using custom skin.

The features which the stock UI facilitates and are absent in many other devices using custom UI is the Google swipe which lets you access the Google now with a simple swipe up from the home button. Similarly, the new feature of android, DOZE has transformed the scope of battery life in android devices with depleting of battery life minimized despite having active applications running in the background. This feature was firstly, introduced in the android device with stock UI and only then distributed among other manufacturers implementing custom UI.

Having said this, there are many features in the custom UI of other manufacturers which can be equally as appealing to the users with the presence of features and functionality missing in the stock UI. Once again, the decision to be made is under individual preference and cannot be generalized due to the varying taste and device usage of the users.
