TouchWiz is so common that many think it is the stock version of Android. It is known for it's blue, white and gray color palette.
Sony Xperia UI
With no physical home button, Sony's interface has buttons built into the UI on the bottom of the screen.
Sense's flat, Material Design is moving closer to stock Android, but the dark grey app drawer makes it distinct.
The LG UX comes with no app drawer, some oddly colored wallpapers and flat, square icons.
Huawei / Honor Emotion UI
EMUI has no app drawer as well, and resembles iOS strongly.
Stock Android is purely Google-made, so the devices which run it receive software updates first, naturally. This is the real deal.
