I have Samsung galaxy S7 and after last software update would be my last Samsung phone.
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2017This is causing me a huge amount of unnecessary stress. I can't figure out my phone anymore; h... moreI HATE the update as well. I badly wanted to like this phone but it was a HUGE step down from the Note 3. After my Note 3 broke I got an iPhone but really missed my Android. I purchased the s7 with high expectations that were nowhere near met. Pixelated videos, having to download images before sending, the always-hot battery, weak multitasking features, NO STYLUS (still mourning the loss of my Note 3). I tried to find one thing about the phone that was decent at best. I came to enjoy the fact that I could select multiple photos for my lock screen wallpaper but that feature is gone after the update. Also, I can no longer split screen while texting. I'm ready to go back to my iPhone period extremely disappointed!
Really horrible interface. I have to actually press an embedded arrow to read long texts, which takes me to a different screen. Then you read the long text and have to navigate back to messages to finish reading the next text from the SAME person. Everyone would rather just scroll and not have to look for hidden content! The reverse camera button is now in upper left corner and cannot be reached with a simple click of the thumb. I have to actually change the device to my left hand, so I can reach up to the top left, just to reverse camera. This is how we live life now, Samsung. Don't kill business by making it harder to navigate the camera. It also doesn't take the same quality of pics. Who are you hiring for these upgrades? Surely you can afford the best, but it's like the designers are way out of touch. And the generic same size font on everything clouds my mind. The other display was easy and simple BC it suggested an order with color and size, now it's cluttered BC nothing stands out. This is so bad I will either find a way to revert to previous software or I will change phones. Cannot be productive like I need to be and I've intentionally tried to give it time to grow on me.
What a crappy update. Now my phone is all screwed up and I have to relearn everything. What the hell are you people doing at Samsung?
This latest update is horrible
I lost all notification sound, can't watch any videos- Facebook, Instagram et.etc. Wi-Fi is horrible and my battery is almost dead 4 hours after coming off the charger.
I own a small business and need my phone for it. Thanks to this latest update I've lost a few potential new customers.
Fix this now Samsung or I'm switching brands
The update has removed the multi window feature has been removed/disabled. Unexceptionable.
About the look of the new update. Its very ugly and hard on the eyes. Its appears to be an attempt by Samsung to look closer to a cheap iPhone knock off. the problem is, I dont want a iPhone or a iPhone cheap copy.
Ive been on the phone with Samsung and they claim the problem is the UPDATE. They also claim the UPDATE is made by the carrier. this is obviously not true, carriers have the ability to adjust the software for carrier specific requirements. carrier are not individually
This is causing me a huge amount of unnecessary stress. I can't figure out my phone anymore; half of the features I'm used to are gone now and all my settings and personalization are different and irreversible, I don't even recognize the new vibrate pattern notifications because those all changed on me too. I missed my iPhone before but this really put me over the fence. I absolutely HATE what the new update did to my phone that I was already struggling to like. Why did this update change so much when previous updates didn't do any "updating" like this? This update is total BS.
i have the samsung edge 7. i really liked all the settings now i hate it.
why did you ruin a great phone. i have a vision disability. no settings for this no bold in the e mail or larger font when i highlight to 24 font. i cant find my colors to change the bubbles for texting in yellow so i can see it. you need to fix this or go back to last update.
if it is not broke don't fix it!!
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2017Horrible phone is lagging half of my apps not working, Has anyone even tried to turn the flashlight on I had to select flashlight turn the flashlight on and then choose the brightness before the damn thing with work God help me if I'm ever being chased by a burglar and need to let up the key to my car or my front door
Hate my Samsung after the update. How can I go back??? Cannot find anything!!
This new update is in itself the bug. Dammit Samsung fixit. This shit sucks. This is my fourth Samsung and may very well be my last. I am extremely upset that I have convinced my friends and coworkers to endure this crap with me. So much for being an early adopter. Marketing is my background and this update is a true miss. So unlike you Samsung . Phone now freezes and locks up if playing music and using net on wifi. Amazing. Last update was just. Outside of security fixes there was no need to mettle with it. Why, for the love of God, why?
Seriously bad update. Ruined compatibility with many apps and Android File Transfer. A few days ago I could transfer and do everything seamlessly within seconds. Now, everything is disabled due to some "security" changes that are preventing many things from working together. Not sure what to do, been spending hours trying to find a fix...
I downloaded this update sometime in late February. I honestly tried to like it, and sympathize with Samsung. I tried. I regret it, and wish I could have just disabled the update notification. As the other people said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" I loved my phone prior to the update, and it was working perfectly, with a decent battery life. I am not even gonna sugarcoat; I HATE this new update with a passion. My phone (S7 Edge) has ads now, which is very annoying. On top of that, it will not stay charged. At. All. I have to charge it about 2 times in a span of a school day, with airplane mode, and battery saver on. It even completely died after school in a span of 5 hours when I was walking home alone (which is VERY unacceptable and dangerous). I used to be able to go a whole school day + walking without my phone dying, and without me having to charge/be on airplane mode at all. Boy, were those the days... The WiFi went downhill as well. It goes out at random times, and YouTube refuses to work sometimes because of it. Previous to this update, my WiFi worked fine on my phone, and currently runs well in my house.
Not only that, but it was really annoying how they switched the settings icons around and making it two pages. It is sometimes eye-bleeding because of the white background of it, as well. The update also made it so that all of my music had the same cover. Not ONLY all that, but I noticed my phone has really been lagging more often, and freezing/closing apps. It also gets very hot after a while. I have also noticed that now I need to press two buttons just to get from a contact to the texting page, thus wasting time when it was fine the way it was with 1 button.
Samsung very much needs to get rid of this downgrade, and of course the person who had the bright idea for this insane "up"date. They attempted to make our phones more complex, but failed to realize that N O O N E wanted that, and the version before was much more efficient. Sometimes, the simpler things run better. It's not about how elaborate the phone is, it's about how user friendly it is. Clearly, they could not give or take two craps about what we think, and Samsung just did what they found most convenient. Well, they just wasted their time, because this update is so tedious to navigate through, so complicated, so inconvenient, that my phone is ruined due to it. Thanks a lot, Samsung :(...
This update has cost me more than I could ever justify staying with Samsung, horrible, all was fine, unreplaceable, un fixable
This system update sucks and makes me hate my phone. It looks so generic w small wording.
