November Samsung Galaxy 5 update messed up my phone. Lost all my game apps that I downloaded, the spell auto correct is strange, and lost all my pictures from the past week. When I went to Shutterfly, it couldn't see any of my pictures.
My phone updated a few weeks ago. It seems that I have lost all my camera features. It takes pictures. But I am not able to adjust to night time. The ISO. Can no longer change from color to black and white.
And not to mention. It took me 10 minutes to type this due to the very persistent and annoying auto correct.
Is the camera thing a glitch? Because I chose this phone for it picture capturing abilities .
My s5 active updated to marsh mellow a while back, every since my battery seems weaker, the phone itself seems slower and most apps will glitch and freeze and say not responding.I personally didn't see anything new other than wifi calling in my notification bar now..anyone else having problems with a s5 active an

My husband and I updated and it changed our screens (2 phones) , changed our icons, deleted some of them, and now the text auto correct is even worse than it was before and now neither phone will charge beyond 91%. Both phones! I'm really losing faith in Samsung. The last two phones have been a disaster!

When doing a update on my Samsung 7 I'm getting a message that says "Failed to Update software" Failed to update firmware. Visit a Samsung Service Center. I don't have a Samsung service center near me, what do you suggest I do?
My phone has been acting up since last update. It freezes constantly while using apps and it's generally slower to use. Really disappointing when they don't test these updates before launch. Don't break something that works. Unsure of what measures I can take to fix it.
This update has destroyed my phone. I guarantee I will never have a samsung again after this experience.
Dtox, 14 Aug 2017I just fixed mine. Update Chrome app in google play. It fixes the small type.Worked like a charm. Thanks so much.
Since the update I've had serious problems connecting to my wifi. In fact i burned through 375MG of my monthly 500MG of data simply cause i wasn't connected to wifi when i thought it was. I've also had a lot of trouble with the volume of the alarm clock app. Before when I maxed the volume I could hear it across my house. Now (with all volumne options maxed out) I can't even hear it on my bedside table. I was woken up this morning not by the noise of the alarm but by the noise of the phone vibrating against the bedside table because that generated more noise then the alarm itself. I've also extreme lag on my internet browser and all games on my phone which is especially frustrating. My autocorrect I had to disable in setting of replace word as it is completely useless at the moment. It replaces even some of the most basic words with random things. I tried to write the word 'man' and it kept replacing it with with 'mainly'. Super frustrating. I've always loved my galaxy but this is extremely frustrating and a huge let down of an update.

Vera, 12 Sep 2017I can't able to update my latest version samsung galaxy s5I'm unable to update to the latest security patch (August) either. This patcht is supposed to fix the bluetooth LE problem. I just keep getting can't connect. I tried updating using the computer and it says no update available even though I know there is. This just plain sucks. Right now I have my tracker connecting to an old iPhone each morning. I had a perfectly good working phone (even did that factory reset trying to fix bluetooth issue) and Samsung and Verizon mucked it up. Just put it back to the way it was before the July update.
I've lost the ability to switch between languages on my keyboard with a simple swipe.
The autocorrect on my phone is all messed up.
ie. When I type lock, it corrects it to lol.
The phone freezes out of nowhere all the time now, and it generally operates much slower.
This was a terrible update, and it will make me consider getting an iphone for my next purchase.
