I loved my S5.
then I downgraded to an S6.
The hardware was crap. No water resistance, no removable battery, no sd card . . .
At least, with the update, they've matched the software to the hardware.
It's ALL crap now!
Time to change again and this time, NO crappy Samsung!
This update destroyed my phone. Called Samsung to complain and was told this was a Google update and all current android phones changed to look like an IPhone. If I wanted an Iphone I would have bought one. The font is so small, tbe colors horrible, icons are very tiny, phone freezes, facebook and internet won't load, so many extra steps and I can go on and on. I HATE MY PHONE! Google/Samsung are you you going to pay off my phone contract? Change it back!
At first i was unhappy with update. LOTS has changed. Biggest dissapointment was the battery drain. I have slowly worked to resolving most.
I found no internet, my charge was good.
Nothing like Samsung update turning on all power drain features by default.
Try turning off:
- Face Detect (I suspect it uses camera to face detect and drain battery).
- Samsung Cloud (A new feature I caught up to. When I did I found ALL pics and data was on cloud at 500+ MB! (Think:how much battery was used to push that up).
Look under settings, cloud to disable.
Still not perfect but a lot better.
In the beginning loved all the features on my galaxy S6. But now can't stand the phone. After recently under going a new update date it all but got rid of all the nice features that my phone had. Everything is white, can't tell in text who said what. All contacts are now all white with small lettering. Does not play the Samsung tone when you first start up. Camera mode to complicated. It now feels like you have to learn everything all over again and you have owned the phone for almost two years. Sorry Samsung but this update sucks. Think I will be switching to an Apple IPhone as this just does not cut it anymore. Why did you take a real good phone only to turn it into a useless awful phone? Getting paid the big bucks for all the wrong reasons.
A SMALL update?! This changed everything on my phone! How do we complain about this and make samsung undo it?! I want my phone back and it hasn't even been 24 hours! Texting is maddening, the fonts are way too small and the extra steps just to adjust the display settings, and everything else, are a joke! I hasn't planned to get a new phone, but now I'm going to have to. Just hope I don't destroy this one in a fit of rage first!!!!!

Terrible, horrible, rotten, no good update. As others have said, they've broken more things than they've made better.
Period->backspace used to suggest comma or question mark. Why would you take that away!?
Two swipes to adjust brightness, screw that. I'm blind in the morning before I can adjust.
Autocorrect? There is a reason I didn't buy an iPhone. I love the suggestions, but don't correct my shitty typing for me!
This newest update is horrible. Very disappointed in Samsung. The font is too small. Camera complicated. Brightness adjustment harder. Deleted some icons. Why make an update worse not better?
My Facebook keeps locking.
I Often like to adjust the brightness of my screen. There are so many extra steps to take now and it is a real nuisance.
If I look up a contact, I like to be able to see all the details of that contact right away. Now, it is an extra step.
New update is a step back in usefulness. To turn on my mobile data is a pain in the ass now. Why make it so many steps. How about letting me move the swith to first setti gs screen. May have to get away from Samsung products

How do I go back ? This sucks !!!! I don't know if my alarm is set ? It changes all the words I type! Camera takes more steps can't capture the moment! This is terrible! If anyone can tell me how to un-update this please post ! I did love my phone - not anymore!
Update was horrible! The font set is really difficult to read now and super small no matter what you do to change it. Notifications is just one big white box of nothing is clear and makes sense. Color differences in text messages to keep track of who says what, is non-existant at best...the whole phone just lost its entire personality! Hate the font but having a hard to replacing it completely. Hard to see clearly. While there may be some cool new features, I can't get past how bland, white and boring the phone now operates on. Huge mistake Samsung...huge!
Absolute rubbish update! Fast charging doesn't work! WiFi doesn't work! Not convenient as the previous version...

What the hell was wrong with leaving it like it was?
Worst upgrade ever for Samsung. All the convenient things my phone once did are gone. Will be searching for new phone soon . This is terrible.
WOW this is crap, I can't even list all the problems with this piece of sh1t, I will definitely not be buying another Samsung. It added contact that I can not remove. Changed all my colors and can't put them back, messed up my auto correct, so I even spell a word correctly and changes it. Battery lasts have as long, a lot slower than it was before, and this is the crap I noticed after only a few minutes of a forced update.
This latest update absolutely sucks!!! When texting I will literally type in a word (that is an is a word btw) and it'll pick a completely different word for me that makes no sense. I go back to correct it as it corrects it again. So annoying!!! The alerts are hard to read. The reply on a text is too small. When Swype texting it is so far off I can't even believe it. This is the worst update ever. I know I'm ranting, but I'm so pissed off.
