this update has TOTALLY wrecked how i use my phone. even the touch pressure has changed. zooming in & out? forget abt it! it's making me check things i've never even looked at before. i'm not sure if this is a t-mobile/samsung collaboration? it's horrible. and the new menu options? they are hardly visible. some of the help sections don't respond ~ at all. i know people have said there is a lag... but c'mon!
ISSUES FOLLOWING YOUR SECOND MAY UPDATE ON 22ND MAY.
The update caused following problems 4 apps blank including my most used app OK google app, I am not technical but have I tried to reinstate it via settings l can see it in setting but unable to reinstate it I use it a lot. Also just discovered I have to reinstate my wifi settings, wondering if your sending a fix?
I asked them how I am supposed to reinstate OK google no reply.
This is bullshit my phone is garbage now. Why in the he'll would you ruin everyone's phones
The camera zoom is now the multi shot button I hate it wtf? Text screen colors suck give me my old set up back! I dont want 10,000 emoji's eather If I did I would have got an iPhone
I updated yesterday, it was ok, today i woke up with a "insert sim card" message... i already went to the carrier, they gave a new sim card... still NOTHING... it doesnt recognizes it has a sim card!!! now i have a calculator! HELP! (non rotted phone here)
I hate the new update!! its so slow, the screen display sucks. I dont get my notifications even though I have turned them on. It is not as convenient as it used to be. I am thinking I have to swtich to IPhone now. Change the version back to the older one!!
My phone worked fine before the update. Now the system icons are impossible to see in daylight (seriously - light gray on white background?!)
But the entire reason I bought this specific phone was to connect bluetooth to my car and now it cannot. I drive all day. Thanks, Samsung. Likely just lost me as a customer. I'll need a new phone within days.
Ever since updating my phone the bottoms touch buttons just randomly flash on their own.
It does it throughout the day and night and I can't seem to be able to stop it.
Other than that nothing else has been affected by the update - but the flashing buttons is quite annoying!
I agree. This update is horrible. Where is my favorites? Why don't I get text notifications? Why is it so hard to quickly brighten the screen? Before I could do it when I couldn't see the screen because it was right there when you pulled it down. Now I have to pull down all top menus? Who decided to make all the convenience stuff go away? Please fix.
New update up date crashed my phone and now will not reboot. Happy times....
Latest update is awful. My battery is draining, things disappeared, back ground in text sucks and is hard to read. My batter is never at 23% at this time of the day. I have struggled keeping it charged since the update. This is awful! Fix it or you will lose a bunch of Samsung preferred people.
horrible horrible update!!!! i hate my phone now! lost pictures!!! can't locate it restore from google cloud. the text backgrounds are awful...everything is hard to see and read. in want my old system back
Newest update has made my phone suck. Currently have to reboot it multiple times a day due to it locking up.
Oh, i can't get my notifications for my text messages either. Doesn't matter how many times i turn it on or off. I get one text message and the rest don't even register. I look at my phone after an hour and i have 5 text messages missed!
I updated my phone 2 days ago on accident. And now it is a samsung pile of s6. S6 meaning shit! It's taking me 10 minutes for this thing to catch up. I hate you samsung! I hate you!
Totally Horrible.....Told T-Mobile and Samsung this is a terrible update and want it uninstalled..
Belly, 03 Jun 2017Is there anyway u CANSTOP the new firmware update when the next stage is to install on the S... moreNope you can't stop it. You can delay it for a bit, but after a while it will force the update through. A tech told me this ehen I called to ask how I can revert back to the old version. He said the update is permanent and that I can't go back, even if I did a Factory Reset.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2017Don't update. I can't use my phone when I need it. I have to keep force booting to get inI was told by a tech at AT&T that you can't avoid the udate. You can delay but it will eventually force the update through. You also can't reset to old version by doing a factory reset. He, by the way, isn't happy about the update either.
