makes my phone look and work like a wall Mart throw away job. Horrible.
Are they going to put this right? My s6 + wouldn't switch on this morning. It's turned a good phone into rubbish. Can't do all that every day to get it to switch on.
I think they did this sucky update on purpose. To force you to buy a new phone. Since they have newer versions out there.
There was nothing so wrong with the older software version that they had to create this crap to replace it.
I think it's some kind of sabotage. I love the old version of my phone. Love the colors I love the way it was laid out on my text now the top bars gone. I do a lot texting with my business. My Facebook keeps crashing. (It never did that before) I'm losing some of my brief newsreel keeps disappearing for long period of time. I never had these problems before. No improvements I can see. I don't understand why they even did it. If you're going to update software you should make improvements upon it. NOT take them away!
Are they just desperate to try to come up with something new to make it look like you're doing something? Maybe I'm a techie idiot but it sounds like everybody else is having issues with this ridiculous update too. And I guess you can't go back to the old version. Which sucks even worse. At least that's what I read via these other comments.
Ive been with T-mobile for a long time maybe I need to start looking elsewhere. Sad because I so loved the setup on this phone prior to this joke of an update. My phone seems to have become down graded with this update.
Nice job! NOT! I didn't purchase this phone for it to become an overnight used vehicle.
The layout sucks. The colors are not interesting harder to read because of the weak coloring. If I were an older person I'd really have a problem with this phone. Unable to see some of the displays now.
Just stupid waste of software development. Maybe they just needed a reason to keep some of their Tech staff employed and ask them to redo an update that wasn't necessary so that they could keep them with a paycheck.
I could have upgraded to the newer versions of phone but I like this phone so much but I didn't want to but I guess now they're trying to force you to buy having crappy updates like this developed.
I can't help but feel a minipulation going on. This kind of MEDIOCRE, sub par quality of work kind of forces you to retire your phone because you don't want to put up with less than what you had before.
SMART... if you want to sell more phones and keep the disposable consumer mentality cranking onward.
I've updated my samsung S6 on 13 June via OTA....since I have to charge it's battery 2 times per day, specially when I have a conversation over the phone around 15 minutes, it sucks/drains the battery to 5% and then power off the phone. I have to recharge it to be able to use it again ! It does not happen before. I would very much appreciate if someone can help me to revert to previous version. How can I do that please ?
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!
