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 ???
I used to love my phone before this latest update, and now I hate it, unfortunately. Crappy update changed everything, wish I could revert.
sad to hear all these feedbacks. an update should not be so much unstable. i did not update because i suspected something might go wrong.
Everyone here who hates this update......as almost everyone does will love this response i got from Samsung......WTF
