I let Samsung perform an update my Galaxy S6 Edge on May 2, 2017 as I thought this would improve or at least keep my phone operating properly. Big mistake. There is not one thing that is an improvement on this phone. I will echo many other comments. HATE IT. The white face screen display, or whatever it is, is much harder to read and the icons on the drop down shade menu are smaller and more difficult to navigate. I have yet to figure out how to move them into an order that works for me. What the heck has happened here? I almost feel as though my phone was hacked as it is so changed from what it was and most definitely NOT for the better. I am seriously considering a new phone - different brand. Good thing I am eligible for a new phone. Sorry Samsung. I have been a loyal user (had a Galaxy S3, too) but probably not anymore. This is just awful.
I use an IPhone, but I still have pain. My wife has the s6, HATES the update, and I get to hear it, all day long. Can I sue VERIZON for spousal abuse? This is what happens when somebody needs to justify their job, make changes regardless of what your customer wants. We don't remember anyone ASKING us to upgrade. They simply make your phone miserable until you comply. This had to come from near the top of the corporate ladder. When you look down the corporate ladder you see brains. When you look up......
Sofawoman, 02 May 2017I might try that at Verizon! THanks and good to knowSo I called Samsung as many if you stated. I was told to bring phone to Best Buy. The tech yesterday inform that the phone, s6, couldn't do a Reflash. Instead he went to settings-accessibility-vision-and increased the screen zoom anf font. Hit apply. Once home, I played with it more and went bavk to the same area and turned on high contrast fonts and keyboards.
Now, my phone is more usable. Hope this helps.
Beyond horrible update! Everything about my phone sucks now...I can't flip my pictures sideways or find what they've done with the switch in settings, I touch my screen and it slides instead of opening an app, the keyboard SUCKS!!!! I have to re-type everything now. I hate it hate it hate it!!!!! I'm pissed and seriously going to look into a different phone now. Thanks for nothing Samsung!
Oh, and it has this horrible alarm that just goes off at any random time now and I can't find it to turn it off! Just horrible all around!
This update is horrible! Very hard to read and even see. Samsung messages is worst of all. Please change everything back to the way it was! And hurry!
If it aint broke don't fix it!!
Seriously, the font on my notifications is so small I can barely read it with my glasses ON!
What's worst is that the font for the words "CONTENT HIDDEN" under the ultra small font is large. Hello!! The content is ALWAYS HIDDEN! Yu pinheads make the title of the notification smaller? It's like reading a package insert for a prescription drug for gods sake.
Also, I used to be able to see what WiFi network I was conneted to by looking at the pull-down screen. Now I have to open up Settings to check it. How lame.
Plus the phone now looks like an iPhone.
Please come up with a fix for this. I loved my S6.
Update sucks. my phone was fine before... now my setting are all messed up. I didn't ask for all these new fonts either. Just give me the security updates and I'll opt out of the rest. I liked my phone before. And the camera.. my goodness. I just want to take a picture or shoot a video. This thing thinks I want to be Steven Spielberg or Ansel Adams.
This latest update is awful. Samsung's reputation is already ruined with Samsung 7. Now they frack up Samsung 6. I need to listen to audiobooks. Get migraines when try to read. So I live by audiobooks. Now? Now after this unwanted update, there is a HORRIBLE reverb on the audio. It is like I am listening in a tunnel. I haven't found any fixes for this and no way to roll back to the prior upgrade. Thanks a lot Samsung! You have really lived up to your tarnished reputation.
I agree with everyone else your new update sucks. Everything looks blah.
Hate this update as well. So frustrating ans what the heck happened to the keyboard where's the period!
Loved my s6, loved Verizon, now HATE both because of latest update. I'll be dumping this phone ASAP.
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2017Everything was fine. Galaxy 6, no problems. Prior updates seemed to integrate unobtrusively.... moreAlso do not like the new "sleek" look ..its harder to read....My contacts list for messages was changed to one I had years ago ( some of those folks dead!)...camera now more complicated to use...I want to able to choose security updates and NOTHING ELSE....
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2017I agree, I believe it has been intentionally "updated" to get people to order the newest phone... moreI hate hate hate this update. Please change back to the large and clearer font. I hate this phone now and am serriously thinking of changing from androids. Hate hate hate this!! so frustrating
Absolutely hate this update, wish I never did it and of course we are also due for an upgrade hummmmm
Hate, hate, hate, hate this update.
It took away ALL my personalization. Are they kidding? I hope the people that created this crap also took the update on their phones.
Latest update is a total disaster . . . HATE IT . . . FIX It . . . too many problems to list !
I agree with all the other comments, I hate this update and now I hate my phone!!!!! Can't wait for my contract to end so I can buy an I phone!
