Awful update! What's happened? Loved the way my phone was set out and worked before but it's very complex now. Phone favourites are tiny. The bigger page of just favourites was so much better.
Have always got excited about an update but this is a real let down.
Samsung - look at how you had it and think about putting most of it back, it was really good before.
My phone updated this morning and it is terrible. Really really sucks. Font is either tiny or comically large. I am gutted as everything has changed...i loved my phone before. :-(
I have always loved everything about my Samsung phones. Honestly. After I updated.....my phone has lost a lot of the extras it had. Harder to see, cant get messagess while talking on phone, themes wont work on it, plus several other "harder to use" options on keyboard, etc. Is this update designed so we upset and buy a new phone? I will get a flip phone if this isnt fixed!
I have received a subsequent update of 231.90 MB after Nougat 7.0 (~1.23 GB)
I think the update is good. Reading some of these comments makes me laugh. Like seriously how stupid are some people. If they spent some time to actually try some stuff they would find that you can make it work the way tou want like makr the brightness bar appear on the slide down menu. You can change the order of the icons there too. There are problems like font but that is fixable, and they also took out the option to activate power saving automatically but again its fixable. Also I read a comment saying its hard to find contacts or some shit, seriously? Its not hard. Other comments saying they want to change to iphone. Why didnt you get one in the first place? ( also they don't even have a back button).
Peace and Love.

Angel, 15 May 2017How do I go back ? This sucks !!!! I don't know if my alarm is set ? It changes all the w... moreAbsolutely the worse!! Font so tiny, brightness a pain to adjust, camera more difficult..so many extra steps!! ..PLZ ,,how DO you change it back!!??
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!!!!!
