ordinaryuser, 26 Feb 2017The update has deactivated the security settings, a simple swipe by anybody unlocks the phone,... moreI think if you didnt have a pin or something before then it wouldnt have carried over but i havent had battery issues yet but if your using the performance mode it will probably kill your battery much faster and also the contacts merged with the messaging and i like that because you always had to switch between but also liked the new look
The update has deactivated the security settings, a simple swipe by anybody unlocks the phone, this cannot be reset again to pin or fingerprint. anybody has the same problem?
I think WhatsApp and Samsung made bet for who will irritate most their customers. New update theme can be accepted. ok.. but what about over photos and videos that disappeared from the phone? I am a YouTuber and my videos which I captured for upload in youtube also disappeared. now, what will I do? it is really disappointing.
Leah1964, 24 Feb 2017It will not let me do that. I hate my S7 Edge now do u know how to get rid of the recent apps thing when u slide ur finger diagnol from the bottom right corner
This new update completely ruined my phone, now it gets extremely hot and continuous restarts itself. The previous version was working perfectly fine... why fix something that's not broken!!! very disappointing samsuns.
New update has made my phone slow, font looks small, plain and old.
Cant bare the speed
This is not good. How can i roll back to previous version? Ugg. I don't have time to relearn where everything is on my phone. I have better things to do with my life.
hSammmy, 24 Feb 2017you can just change your theme or update it and you will be able to see it againWell I changed the everything more times than I like too ....still can't see my messages...after this horrible update.
And so wrong that I had too change it so many times still didn't work. I paid a lot for this phone...
Wtf Samsung!! This update is awful!! My phone display looks like an old phone!! The battery doesn't last anymore and to charge my phone it now takes hours to charge and that without using any apps! The texting is rubbish if you type a word wrong this update doesn't change it for you it leaves it there!! And The update has deleted all of my personal dictionary entries!! I now hate my phone! The old version (marshmallow) was amazing the look of the phone looked so much better!! And the charging was amamzing!! Please samsung gives us the marshmallow update!! Please resolve this awful update!!
hSammmy, 24 Feb 2017you can just change your theme or update it and you will be able to see it againAgree with all. HATE update. Is there a way to download old one again?
Got the huge update yesterday. I don't understand why they always try to "fix" things that don't need fixing. I'd love to be a fly on the wall in the special room where they make these decisions.
The icons are much worse, harder to read, smaller text. I don't get any push notifications any more - just a message that the Power Monitor App is on ... can't figure out how to get the notifications I used to get - news, emails (at a minimum).
Contacts was changed once again and each time is worse. WHY?
One of my favorite features was being able to scroll down from the home screen and adjust my screen brightness. This was so handy when outside and I couldn't see the screen well. So now there's a two step process for this. Great. If I can't see the screen well because it's too bright outside, it'll be even harder to adjust. Thanks for that clever change!
Another feature I liked was to be able to place image files directly on any of the screens. I had a nice Travel Schedule I took a picture of and placed it on a screen for handy reference. Well, no more! Sure, this isn't probably the most used feature, so thanks for removing this for me.
And they totally reorganized the SETTINGS. I was finally used to the last changes, but now they are all once again moved around. Did a search in the main settings screen for App Power Monitor and it didn't show up. Had to google some old posts and do some guessing before I could find it. So much for the SEARCH feature.
I can't wait to see what else they "fixed" over the next few days. These updates are so exciting. I wish they'd focus on their new features and not changing others all the time.
Oh, and did I mention how the update makes the phone slower? That's a great step forward ... and two steps back.
