Furthermore, there is an added integrated location menu that enables users to activate GPS, Wi-Fi and mobile networks, while also checking the battery usage of apps running location service capabilities. Enhanced Messaging is found on Samsung's custom TouchWiz as well, enabling users to choose between Messages or Hangouts as their preferred default messaging application, and select from a larger assortment of updated Emoji icons.
