What the heck?!?!? This update is the worst!!! Completely sucks! Washes out everything. I can't figure anything out because it all runs together. What a cluster!!! This phone is my life line. I can't operate with it being like this!!! Samsung - you better get on it STAT! Seems like not a single person is pleased. At least give us the option to go back to the old color scheme. Ridiculous...
Dave L, 03 May 2017This is the worst update yet. Everything on my Galaxy S6 phone is now much harder to read. It ... moreSame here. Before the update I only had to touch the keypad or window with a light tap of my finger, now I have to press real hard to get the keypad or any applications to respond. This update totally sucks!!!!!
Sam, 08 May 2017What's with the black line around the white lettering!? Driving me nuts!Go into settings, Accessibility, vision and click off high contrast fonts.
Hard to Read. Some tap spots are to close for old fat fingers to hit. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE.
Good reason to look at the opposite end of the alphabet for a phone Company. I can't believe my provider allowed such nonsense.
Every S6 user, 03 May 2017I too hate this update. I don't like most of the updates I have gotten on previous phones. But... moreI totally thought the same thing. Made this update so bad it makes me want to get another phone
My galaxy 6 Samsung update has RUINED the usability of my phone! To date, this WAS my favorite galaxy, now its garbage! HELP! Can this be undone??
Cmv1352, 08 May 2017Agreed! My phone is worthless now.What's with the black line around the white lettering!? Driving me nuts!
Worst system update... Edge screen color gone. Camera is blurry. I lost ringtones.
I did a factory reset thinking I had a glitch in the updates. I hate my phone now. I want back my phone the way it was before the last system updates.
MY PHONE IS DOWNGRADED FROM WHAT I ORIGINALLY GOT THE SAMSUNG 6 EDGE + FOR. NOW ITS A SAMSUNG 6S EDGE -
Samsung Simply Sucks -- say it out loud, it's fun and easy! This #&*@^$#% update completely and irrevocably is garbage. I see lots of folks in this thread complaining about tiny type, but my problem is HUGE type -- it's like a 1st grader's first book. Also I had my home page and adjacent pages exactly as I wanted them, but this @#$^(&# update deleted ALL that; for example, I had a dozen news apps clustered in one tidy icon and now there doesn't appear a way to replicate that. WTF is Samsung thinking? Oh, I get it -- this is like the piece o' crap lemon Samgsung French door refrigerator I got in 2103 that died a month after its one-year warranty expired. Samsung Simply Sucks. Never buyin' Samsung ever ever again. Hey everybody, contact Costco and all your other favorite retailers and let's start a boycott until Samsung reverses this abomination they call an upgrade.
My S6 was system updated on 4/29 in Reno, while my friends phone was just days after mine in the same area that has a newer phone than mine. I agree with everyone, I hate this new update. I went to the Verizon store today to complain and asked how or if I can go back to my previous system. He clicked into where the system update was installed and said NO, the S6 does not have that feature. But as I understood the other phones do. All you can do when they present a new update is to keep saying later, later, later. Stupid, stupid, stupid. What were they thinking? I can make my font larger to read in my text and email. But as others mentioned I cannot rotate pictures. I also saw that they've changed how you edit your pictures. Took awhile to figure that out. Also I got a call from my doctor office to confirm an appointment telling me to press 1 to confirm. No keypad appeared as before. Well today the guy showed me that you have to remove the phone from your face and on the middle of the screen, (in very fine pale white on grey print) you see the words keypad. Click on that and your keypad will show up. Unbelievable What they've done. I agree with everyone, if it isn't broke, leave it alone. And my next phone will very well be an IPhone.
Samsung, you have ruined a good thing with this latest update. I hate my phone and already hated my carrier AT&T. Now I wish we just had pay phones. Oh, Samsung, if you read these posts, I am posting this message from my iPad. And soon maybe from an iPhone.
this sucks....samsung has taken a great product and made it junk!!!!
Being forced into the so called features of this update is unacceptable. Visually, these features are ineffective as they make everything either difficult to see, read or are smaller, such as the icons. Decrease the size of the logos, so you can add a white block behind them?? Who in their right mind thought THIS would be appealing? Looking into my contract today to turn my back on android and go apple, which I never saw as a possibility until this update.
Recently upgrated my Verizon Samsung G6 to the lastedt solfware. I want my previous version.back. This is not what I want. How can I get the previous version back?
I have a note 5 for work, the Android 7 upgrade on that looked like crap too but it just looked like crap it's not rebooting or having software issues. I changed the theme and icons now its OK. I also have a SamsungG6 for personal use, and have not started the update,I am so glad! After reading all of these posts I will not update to Android 7 on my Galaxy 6 until I know that this issue is no longer an issue. Thank you all
LadyD, 03 May 2017It's it Samsung or the carrier? I have Verizon and I thought it was from them. If this is from... moreWow, I thought I was bambuzled by a cellular malware function. Either this career and legacy ending error will beget a sensational new product or samsung committed suicide 24 hours ago PST.
-Phone turns off instantly when not plugged into an energy source eventhough it is fully charge
-Random reboots or turn offs
-White screen background on my contact notes so I can not see what I have saved prior.
-Weak phone screen visuals and commands
My first phone was a Samsung back in 1998, since then I developed a preference for the samsung brand.
This circumstance Samsung brand has put me in makes me think about the dreadful I phone. I believe Samsing has 7 days to fix this problem
