Want the AOSP Feel While Retaining TouchWiz Features on the US Galaxy S III?

When it comes to which ROM to use, some users can be very specific. Some enjoy the feel of a pure Google experience, and are more than willing to give up the OEM-specific features of their device to get them. Others, however, enjoy native features that come stock and would only like the AOSP look-and-feel in certain areas. In many cases, it’s hard to find the best of both worlds—especially on devices like the US Galaxy S III, which features many innovative gestures and inbuilt features.

Thankfully, XDA Forum Member AndroidFan4 has comprised a list of TouchWiz apps that can be swapped for their AOSP counterparts without issue. Combined with the numerous AOSP-style launchers available in Google Play, and you can piece together the perfect ROM for your tastes, while retaining the features native to the US Galaxy S III. There are a few issues with some of the applications, though. For instance, without the TouchWiz Gallery, the camera application will force close when attempting to view a preview, thus requiring users to open the AOSP gallery manually to view recently taken pictures.

Head over to the original thread to learn more.
