I think i have a work around for those who can't get the LED to work for messages -
settings - sound and vibrations - notification sounds - message notifications - beep once
Now, i have it over riding set at silent so it won't beep anyway, but this seems to get the blue light flashing again. I haven't tried it for other apps like mail, facebook etc.. but i would imagine you need to do something similar. A bit daft, but at least it works.
what an absolute joke of an update. i have lost so many good things it is untrue. main thing being, i can't seem to get the LED light working for lock screen. It works for missed calls but not messages which is so annoying?? i have tried everything..i mean, was this even tested! the whole thing looks crap and is nothing like the old set up everyone loved and the reason we have these phones. I keep discovering something is missing or i can't find what i want every time i pick this up at the moment.. I agree with the many on here, this is a cash grab from Samsung trying to get people to switch to a newer model but i have been with them for 6 years and am seriously tempted to move to a different phone after this insult.
Samsung test first and after use peoples phones for this crap update!!! my phone gets disconnecting from network nothing stable icons so small crap!!
Major disappointment.. talk about lag. Time to get back to the drawing board
I absolutely am not happy with this update. If you havent done this update, DONT ! I don't have a data plan so I turn it on when receiving downloads or pictures, it's such a process to get to my data usage now....theres gotta be a quicker way. Also not a fan of the" new look " is there anyway to change it back !!!!!? ☹ my contract isn't up till next year or else I'd do a phone change now.
I share all your complains with this latest update.......its awful
In addition to all previous crappy things this update has done its also managed to eliminate the notification blue light that blinks when you've missed a call, received a text or e-mail.
Extremely frustrating to have to open up the screen to see if there is any kind of message rather than just looking for the blue blinking light.....uggg
If anyone has that light working.......please share.
I am extremely upset over the crap performance of my S6 after the update. In fact it has frozen. So many posts of the same complaint, it signifies that it is unfortunately true.
Samsung has definitely lost me as a customer. Sadly, I have had 3 Samsung phones but will switch to iphone. I regretted the update.
The update for galaxy edge s6 is very bad .
Icons looks preaged and small .
Messaging apps notifications not clear .
After "upgrade", putting my ear to phone which is one way of using my phone, the thing goes into airplane mode. Hummmmm. Who put the airplane mode icon where my ear goes and who would want to got to AP mode during a call? so my ear touches the AP mode icon and i go to AP mode. Maybe cut my ear off to simplify software or wear ear muffs? Phone also opens a new window and wants to convert voice to text?? I have hung up on my 86 year old mom 3 times, bad karma. Now use Bluetooth headset to protect phone from my ear. As far as the phones new Phone call GUI (graphical user interface) i am not pleased!
Why? This latest software upgrade is really bad. So many issue's it's really making me not want a Samsung. Just to write this was extremely fustrating....go back to how it was please.
OMG...what were Samsung thinking.....this latest update is crap. Hate the new look of the some of the icons and apps. Please put my calender back to how it was!!!! And what's with the character restrictions when sending a message....totally crazy. Please sort it out or off to Apple....
Woke up to find my Samsung s6 has gone crap with this new update... SAMSUNG what have you done????? Phone app crap.... favourites page gone.. settings ??? Disaster... message background ?? RUINED A PERFECTLY GOOD PHONE.
I want down grade ... New software update version very worst..... 😣😣😣
First it deleted my cleaning app..then it changed how i access my apos..which now i cant seem to find..hafe hate hate how my messages look...several kf my apps are nkt workibg correctly!...ive been a loyal customer...im due for an upgrade and am considering dumping samsung!..so unhappy
Anonymous, 17 May 2017Awful update! What's happened? Loved the way my phone was set out and worked before but it's v... moreBeen a loyal samsung guy for 10 years. This isnt the forst time theyve blown it. Im going back to iphone. Sick of this crap happening 2 times a year. Shitty update again. Bye bye Samsung you just lost a loyal customer
I have been very happy with all the past updates, except this one. The only part that I do like is the addition of more emoticons, especially the flag section. That's it tho. I'm not having battery probs, I'm having android system probs. i get a notice that "The Android System has stopped working." And that's it. It does not tell me anything else to do.
Not happy with this at all. It seems less functional than it was before. It looks like an older outdated version and there are flaws, many flaws. I hope Samsung realizes this and puts out a better update, soon!
Any S6 users having trouble with Spotify stopping after several seconds, or any video on Facebook or Youtube? This all started after the update. Keyboard issues as well...closing while I'm in the middle of texting or messenger etc...I thought this might clear up after a few days. Sadly still causing problems.
So anytime you have unwanted change people panic. The bad of the update: apps I have shut down keeps restarting on their own. I now have removed a few of the apps. Not sure why this happens. Yes font is smaller and keyboard is a bit different but still usable. Camera issues with the inability to connect to a server and I have to restart it, a lot. The overall usability is good because of a learning curve and I am sure the more I use it the better I will feel about it. It reminds me of the HTC Sense interface. Now if you bought a Android you like to customize so why go to Iphone? Better yet, Go and be stuck with what they want you to have.
can i go back to my samsung before the update? It doesn't work well at all for me this latest update. Please help!
