Well if I have to live with this, the next time I need or want a new phone, it will be a Iphone. I have only been using a smart phone for a little over a year so the Samsung galaxy S6 is my only experience which I loved until this update.

I hate to type over 1 or 2 lines as a text because it just disappears. I try closing all the screens to find it, but nope it isn't anywhere recoverable, it is gone. Very frustrating.
I start receiving Good morning, evening and night messages which require a swipe to eliminate. When the messages pop up, they are usually accompanied by a slide show of pictures. The good night pop up has additional options, to quiet your phone or skip. This started to occur after a recent update (2-3 weeks ago). Is anyone familiar with this and know how to disable it? Recently started to receive religious more, similar fashion, in the morning. There's typically one of each, good morning, religious in the morning, good evening and good night.
I have not installed the update. Are there any steps I can take to avoid it, or will it eventually be forced on me?
Still hating this update. The display and functions appears to have diversed back about 10 years in technology. Still can't connect to free wi-fi sites. Going to a town Friday that has a Samsung dealer, maybe they will help.
The update is garbage battery doesn't last half a day before charging, my WhatsApp messages don't come through I have to open the app to see of anyone's messaged me, please change back
I loathe this latest update! It looks cheap and nasty. The settings page looks like a boring shopping list. Please let us revert to what was pretty much perfect before.
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.
