Stock Android UI Vs. Samsung's TouchWiz - Which is better?

After playing a bit with both (Stock Android UI on Moto G) and TouchWiz on Note II; I've come to a conclusion that Samsung's TouchWiz scores over the stock Android anyday. Samsung's done a fantastic job customising the UI and putting options at your fingertips. I am looking for reasons to know why is Stock Android UI better over customised UI offered by leading phone makers like Samsung, Sony, HTC and others.

The only reason that strikes my mind that the custom UI might take more battery power to operate than stock one. I might be wrong though.

Educate me!

    Yep - Android's stock UI isn't very intuitive.

    #-Link-Snipped-# The stock launcher which you see in Moto G is same as that we find in AOSP 4.3, nothing has been changed.

    Moto G (Uses same old 4.3 launcher):


    Nexus 5 (Uses Google Now Launcher) :



    I guess you can see the difference. You can install Google Now launcher in your Moto G device & see how awesome it is. Stock launchers are smoother (My experience) & less memory consuming than any launchers developed by Samsung or HTC.
