Awfull awful update. Autocorrect has gone mad putting in stupid words after the originals were spelt correctly. Message contacts have all reordered and can't change them back. Emails close down when I try to open them.
Did an update in early May and everything was fine.
Just did a small update a few days ago and now everything is off.
-Getting voicemails way after a missed call
-Battery charge time and life is worse now
-Badge isn't clearing after I check the app
-Keep getting searching for service
-App updates are taking forever to download & install
Hope Samsung has an update coming to fix this update!
Ands, 25 May 2017Not sure about this upgrade at all...wheres my other email accounts gone! I'm sure I'll work s... moreI am very frustrated with the update. The autocorrect has inserted ridiculous substitutions for correctly spelled words, resulting in some embarrassing messages. It takes much longer to send a message now because I have to keep deleting words I didn't want in the first place! My battery drains faster and takes longer to charge now. Also I keep getting notices to select a keyboard but only one option exists...the Samsung keyboard of course. It drives me crazy!
Have loved my Galaxy S6....until now! This firmware update is AWFUL!!! There is nothing I like...I don't know where the auto-correct originated but clearly not the English language.The new notifications screen is so busy with it's stacking format you miss all messages (it was so simple and clean before). The graphics are boring and hard to read...I don't know what they were thinking. I am 2 months away from my phone contract being up....I think I will have to jump back on the Apple train.
Don't usually comment at all, unless very bad or usually great. Not at all pleased!
Go back to the drawing board.
scara, 29 May 2017after latest update all sorts of things are worse
predictive text is even worse than before ... moreIn glad I found this. I thought I was going mad
Since the last update my phone keeps deciding the words I type (and spell correctly) aren't the words I meant and changes them
If I type cockatiel it automatically changes to cocktail and then to other words if I try and change it back.
It's nearly one word a sentence. When I type 'and' of course i meant 'mad' didn't I ?!?.
also now my phone seems to switch between vibrate, silent, and ringer on when it feels like it.
When the sound is on it randomly picks and chooses whether I get a notification when I receive emails. No consistency at all
crap crap,crap, why make such major changes to a product that wasn't broken but now totally stuffed, & for me as a business phone it is Totally useless, & what total rubbish about the security bit, that could have been fixed without reinventing the wheel. The phone is hampering my business so I will have to buy a new phone, LG is looking pretty good, will also be warning my friends not happy Samsung
And if you really can't find anything use samsung Odin almost every frimware is up and ready for installation i have a huawei p9 lite now had about 11 firmware change and now on the latest nougat runs perfectly and i had an S4 and S6 too just install the update if you dont like it millions of people willing to help ya
Ah... my friend has an S6 too android 7 works fine for him but if you all wouldnt be such a cry baby theres just a billion tutorials on youtube and on the internet how to rollback to android 6! And just dont check the auto search for update in updater and you good to go....
Red74, 25 May 2017This update is horrendous, and every time I make a phone call there is a high pitched ringing ... moreDid you got the issue solved? Did they gave you a solution?
I am currently with the same issue...

I was not happy about this at all. Now my phone is slow.

Absolutely shocking the new update I hate it we should be able to go back been a dedicated Samsung phone user for years but this update will make me move to the I phone as it has ruined my much loved phone
Agree with the comments, hate this update and hate my phone now. Its cheap looking and i cant even see the stupid yellow screen for the calculator. Did someone get paid to think up this crap.
My phone now wont charge consistantly. The text caliberation is terrible. Its super slow.
This latest update is a complete screw-up. First, it wouldn't register me on the network, making my phone useless. I got a new SIM card. Phone works but, I no longer get text/email notifications and when the phone rings, it only rings once. I have to hover over the phone. My Smartphone is suddenly Retarded. It seems as if Samsung is trying to put itself out of business. I want a new phone! I used to love Samsung but this is really testing my limits.
after latest update all sorts of things are worse
predictive text is even worse than before for changing perfectly good words
a few apps stopped working and others are being a pain in the arse starting up by themselves
Wish I'd looked on here before downloading the update. My Samsung phone which worked perfectly well before the download is now running really slowly, I am trying to upload photos to Facebook and 20 minutes later it still hasn't completed and the photo editor which was straightforward is now complicated and of poor quality. Why fix something that isn't broken Samsung ???
