This update is horrendous. I am not receiving texts from Iphone users, the phone turns itself off for no apparent reason, when I go onto facebook I have to scroll up, and the screens do "hang" and flicker at times. Also messed up the one word game I had downloaded.
Hate this! Won't allow me to use wifi, at least not all the time. Says "can't connect right now". It's connected. Battery drain is ridiculous. Sometimes I have to dial area code when I never did before. I hate this. Loved Samsung until this update.
NTD, 06 Jul 2016Just downlaoded new SW update on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S5) and Facebook has stopped working... moreMy screen is flickerin and tossing. I mean the down half of my screen is going upwards and the up coming down. It's also hanging. It's usually happening while typing. But the touches and device performance is okay . As I can hear the sounds . Please mail me the solving at xenruhenshen@Gmail. Com
After the latest software update my screen I'd flickering n flickering. I'm going mad about this. I scanned my phone 10 times. Reset my phone restarted but it's not solving.
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2016Because of the update, every time you want to mount to your PC, you need to change the phone c... moreThank you, this worked for me. Now I can see my files while connected via USB cable. Why this change?? it worked fine before. Just one more step. Ahh, it just dawned on me, I did not see any option for tethering. I'll bet this was all about stopping tethering. What a bunch a BS!!!
I thought I was the only person that has lost ALL pics that were taken through my camera. I had them Monday night because I posted them to Facebook and when I got up yesterday, 7/5/16, the WHOLE folder was gone! There is such a bad lag now too. I have restarted 6 times in the last 24 hours thinking it would help. Now to get into my Note4, I have to hit the home button at least 3 times just for the screen to open up! BAD BAD move Android!! Anyone thinking about doing the update please DO NOT DO IT!
Just downlaoded new SW update on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S5) and Facebook has stopped working, im getting this msg 'Unfortunately, Facebook has stopped'.
I've tried to restart phone, switch it off/on again, all seems not to work.
Also, my screen has started flickering.
Anyone having same issues ?
WTF?! What the hell are Samsung thinking?! How about you work out the damn bugs BEFORE you push the update through. since the most recent update, have lost photos, music, etc. Have gone through every folder on the phone and sim, no luck. And while they may acknowledge an issue, still no solution in sight. Thank goodness I have a phone I spent almost a month's rent on that I can no longer count on. Thanks Samsung, way to be responsive to your client's complaints! Frustrating!!!
After the software upgrade, I lost the voicemail box. I was actually told by my husband that "my mailbox is full or is not set up"!! I also got "roaming" when I turn on data without turning on "Location." Seems like I have to turn on Location at all times now for the apps to work, which drain my battery. Cannot view files in computer also with the USB. All sorts of problems since the update a week or so ago!!
I have lollipop version on my s5 now. can someone please tell me what is the lastest update for s5???????????????
Not only do I hate the look after yesterday's update (I can no longer see the symbols on my keyboard$!#). But today it wanted to do another update and I must have pocket dialed "continue" and it did it again. Rating up my entire lunch time when I needed to make phone calls. Just got home from work to find it asking for yet another update! Argh!
Is there a fix for this?
Since the update, I'm not getting text msgs, screen freezes during text replies.
Customize msg alerts and ring tones are missing.
Bring back the old version till you get THIS ONE fixed
My computer cannot see files such as my mp3 files & photos after upgrade. I cannot transfer photos and music onto my phone now.
I recently updated my Samsung Galaxy S5 from Android 4.4 to Android 5. My battery used to heat too much and also I had issues with wi-fi tethering, however all sorted out and no complainant what so ever.
Ever since I updated my S5 a month ago I have dropped calls, my Bluetooth won't connect and stay connected, the voice quality is horrible, the battery drains a lot faster, so basically my phone is worthless right now because I can't really use it except to check emails or text. Absolutely ridiculous!!! I love Samsung and have since my first phone. The only reason I'm sticking it out right now is because I hate the Iphones. My husband has the same phone and luckily I prevented him from downloading the stupid update so he could at least use his phone until you guys get this resolved which I hope is very soon!!!!!
Upgraded my S5 2 days ago, from kitkatv4.4.2 to lollipo v5.1.1, NO PROBLEMS what-so-ever.
Love the new look and improvements, still wondering why so many complaints. Just back up your files before the upgrade, unmount any sd cards to avoid losing pics or personal files.
Same problems after software upgrade. My S VIEW doesn't work anymore. When I open S VIEW cover nothing happens. Screen freeze. Come on Samsung I have been a loyal user for quite a few years but will be changing if not fixed
Update Sucks big time. Apps that worked before must now be erased and won't reinstall. Get internal error messages. Phone sucks now. Never buy samsung products. Go with real phones from now on. These must be kids writing their code, nursery school kids that is.
