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
Thank you for contacting Samsung Customer Care.
We apologize for any inconvenience you are experiencing with the new software update on your phone. We can relate and understand you were adapted with the previous user interface and having difficulty to access the phone with a new layout.
We would like to inform you that software updates are released to improve the phone's performance and deliver a better user experience. Few features and user interface are subjected to change after software update.
After thoroughly checking the information we observe, there are no known or reported issues with the new OS update with Samsung. Content posted on third party web-sites are always subject to opinion.
Below are few advantages of the new update:
- Better battery life thanks to the new-and-improved Doze Mode.
- Revamped notifications.
- Split-screen use.
- Better toggles.
- Quicker system updates.
- Data Saver.
We realize that you would like to revert the software update. Regrettably, it is not possible to revert the software update once it is downloaded on the phone.
I don't mind the new look, but ever since I did the update my phone just turns off by itself. Also it could have over 70% and turn itself off, then when I turn it back on the battery is 5%. It only doesn't turn itself off when I connect the charger. Every time someone rings me it Rings once and then turns off. Seeing as I'm not due an upgrade till November and it would cost me £120 to upgrade now I'm not very happy.
Absolutely hate the latest update. A number of key issues... when you unlock it opens up number keypad. Also the slide menu to access your settings you need to go one further step to adjust brightness. SUCH A CRAP UPDATE.
Samsung does not give a crap...or they would provide an option to revert back after this much negative feedback. Don't care about the look etc...I just want functionality back...nothing runs like it's did before this garbage was provided.
SO SAMSUNG.....if you are listening at all and care to keep me as a customer...revert back or I'm going back to iPhone....at least they seem to care about customer feedback on the product being provided to customers.
my phone went completely dead now i can't get it to turn nor will it even charge!!!
phone upgrade its now so slow and charging takes so long.
its all cluttered and messy with horrible small
Can i remove upgrade?
I literally am commenting to say how much I absolutely hate this update. I can't even take a panorama on my camera? The font is terrible. The battery just drains. I want to revert back.
**DRONE USERS BE CAREFUL** Just got the software update (26 may 2017) on my s6. The new look of the update is the last of my worries! I fly a dji mavic, and the new update on the s6 randomly causes the phone whilst using any app, including the dji go app i use to fly, to go back to home screen, even when im flying the mavic. Even though i always fly 'line of sight' I'm sure you can understand that having the phone go back to home screen while I'm flying, is very disstracting and un-safe. Now a bit more about the issue itself. Basically, when using an app, the phone randomly goes back to home screen. Then, when i open the app I was just using, it carrys on like it never happened. Is any one else having a "back to home screen issue" with their new update?? I'll be getting in touch with samsung in the next day or 2. Wish me luck! Drone users be careful!!
This latest update make me want to throw my phone in the trash. Videos don't play. Games freeze. Things take longer to load. Its total crap!
Agree with everybody this update is shite!!! Hate the phone I used to really like.
I registered just to say that like every other person I absolutely hate this update. Everything has a cheap awful washed- out display with a crappy font. I used to be proud of having a Samsung but not now. Unless this is changed I will not get another Samsung when my contract expires. Nor will my son and nor will my wife. Everyone hates this so get a grip Samsung and sort it the f##k out or lose most of your customers.
