HATE IT TOO!! In addition to agreeing with the comments from others, I had different languages for text input which disappeared with this update. Instructions in the User Manual were no use - the option referred to did not exist. Finally found a way to reinstate them - via DISPLAY settings ?? - but now can't find it again.
HATE IT! There was nothing wrong with the way it worked before. Change it BACK! Texting and messaging is a nightmare, i can't find anything in settings and the ability to NOT be able to change the color of the texting bubbles is awful, muted colors are SO hard to see.
Since the update both mine and my husband's text messages are messed up on our phones. Some messages just disappear after we write them. All my messages are out of chronological order and just scrambled
Arrg - the pictures in the Gallery are microscopic, and there is no setting to enlarge them.

I see a software update for the Samsung Galaxy S6 being pushed out on Sprint Network. G920PVPS4DQF1 size: 16.10MB. Is this what you are referring to? These always have a very vague description of what's new, if any. Usually, just a bs generic, "The security of your device has been improved." Going on to state what a software update can include, but never, what it actually includes.
AnonD-680232, 27 Jun 2017Agree, or new govt. collection software is crowding bandwidth and making apps freeze. Yes! This is horrible my apps freeze and then my screen goes dark for a moment when I try to close out. Predictive text no longer exists too. Not a fan!
Is this Samsung's way of trying to get me to upgrade my phone? I was perfectly happy with my phone until this horrible update!
This new forced update drains my battery in 3 hours, especially if using any app. Despite attempting to change my settings,, the battery keeps draining fast. This update is horrible may have to go back to iPhone.
This update is horrible!!! I was perfectly fine with MY PHONE the way it was before this FORCED update. I paid for a Samsung S6 with certain features and capabilities. I could see if the updates improved the features and aesthetics of the phone but when they reduce it to less than what I paid for when I initially purchased the phone, that's just wrong and unfair. Also, why don't I have the option to accept or deny an update? Feels like my phone and I are being held hostage by the powers-that-be. Hey Samsung... for those of us who are totally unhappy with this recent update, could you please help us get rid of it without having to set the phone back to it's factory setting? It would show that you really cared about your consumers!
My galaxy s6 on longer connects to free wi-fi. It connects with no internet service. where I used to get an agreement/ sign-in get a message to load my browser to finish sign in. I have tried loading chrome and internet, both before and after the attempt to go wi-fi. This happens at the 2 sites that I use. This just started a few weeks ago. Count it be the new terrible firmware update? The wifi that connects with my router at home seems to work fine.
This update is cheap
Lost some contacts
And messaging is a nightmare
SHANK, 20 Jun 2017who comes up with these updates? my phone was fine!!!! the things that i liked and enjoyed the... moreI couldn't agree more -it was fine before - I now cannot read my phone as the writing is so small, all app colours are blending in together so cannot pick out app easily, it's more difficult to set alarm for same day and the pull down menu is far to small and does not stand out do awful update-- glad I kept my iPhone !!!!!
Since the update I cant send a long text message. The previous softwRe would convert a long sms to a mms but now it just runs out of characters and stops with no option of continuing via mms. Is there solution to this does amyone know? Also home screen notifications really hard to see in tiny skinny fonts
anonymous, 14 Jun 2017this update has TOTALLY wrecked how i use my phone. even the touch pressure has changed. zoomi... moreThis update is awful. Nothing is good about it...nothing. It has added more steps to texting, color scheme sucks...
Im reallly considering switching
Brand, brand new here.Just left the world of iPhone 6 last night. I've had a Tab A for sometime and thought that would prepare me for the world of S6. Well kinda' but not completely. Was looking for how to sort the phone "Favorites" list and came across this forum. Sounds like none of you are too happy about this latest update, since I have nothing to compare it with I can't comment. What I can do is tell you why I switched over to Android. In Sept Apple is scheduled to release iOS 11 on the unwitting public. 11 will be a 64bit OS which will be forced on phones with hardware designed to run 32 bit OSs. You think this update you're all agonizing over is a cluster, well wait till you hear the howls from the hardcore iPhone folk when their new OS comes out this fall. I would advise any and all of you to stay with some type of Android phone until the dust settles in the world of Apple.
Predictive txt awful & my camera is rubbish now!! How has this happened?
