Completed latest update, phone is currently sat on my desk not being used and the batter which was at 100% as of 8.30 this morning is now at 41%. Cheesed off the say the least. Anyone else had this problem?
Absolutely shit update.
I had my last update fine with nkt a problem, got the new one and it's been nkthing but slow and glitches out in messages and comes up with 'unfortunately messages has stopped' never since i got this phone it has done this until the update.
I began receiving the update request yesterday and it is a nuisance! Have searched for a way of permanently disabling this and as yet have not found out how to.
My S6 does everything I require it to do and I do not update things for the sake of it!
Advice to developers - when releasing updates give an accompanying description of what they are for plus the option to disable them. End users can then make the choice if they wish to accept.
My phone is just over a year old and installed latest update. My phone is faster and running smooth again. Still learning the new features and small interface changes, but happy.
What i learned is not to intall new large updates, but to give it a week or so before i download and install. This gives some time for corrections.
Starting yesterday, my phone wouldn't charge. The next thing I know it had updated plus rebooted. It deleted all my photos, music, text messages, call history. I Had to sign back in to every app. I'm going crazy!!!!

Recieved an update weighing 83.61 mb today on my s6 g920i can anyone tell me how's the performance after update?
I absolutely gutted with the Samsung s6 the update has been going on since 10am this morning I cant use ma phone at all absolute disgrace!! the android has been starting up for the past 5 hours and still no progress avoid this phone like the plague!!!!
Takes a smart phone company to take away hands free option..no speak to text option and cant connect to wifi..keyboard doesnt respond very well and calibration is off..way to go samsung..your suppose to make life easier with updates no more difficult..wonder if factory reset will remove update..willing to try anything at this point
I had baught the s6 and 17 days later (almost immediately after the update) my phone started overheating bad. I had no service here and there. 'H+' as my signal strength. Went and replaced the phone and have not even wanted to update. Id rather look at the annoying icon on my status bar, then EVER EVER EVER EVER "update" i do believe they want to sabotage the phones we have so we are forced to buy "newer" "fancier" models.
I USE TO LOVE YOU SAMSUNG...WHY?😣
I am totally disgusted with the new the latest update to this phone. No longer can I use my speaker to send text messages, because this latest update removed the icon. Really! It takes me more time to type out a message. This is ridiculous! Also, I keep getting this error message about not being connected to the Internet. These were never issues before this rogue update. I wish there was a way to remove it. My phone was okay before I was forced to accept this latest update. Please fix these problems. Consequently, this is the LAST time that I will buy a Samsung phone.
I cannot believe how bad the latest update is! Where is the option to edit a scheduled text message?
Where is the option to add a contact to the auto reject list? Surely these haven't been eliminated???
And why, when i unlock my screen, does it default to the number dialing keypad EVERY SINGLE TIME?!!
The screen seems to be constantly locking itself and apps continually crashing.
This is a joke- how can it be an update when it's created more glitches than ever.
I only installed this supposed software "upgrade" yesterday and i already hate what it's done to my phone and i've barely explored it yet.
C'mon Samsung, lift your game,it's a disgrace!
How can i uninstall this "downgrade"? Anyone...?
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2016None of my apps are notifying me. I have no idea if i have a text. Also the drop menu at the t... moreI wonder if it can be legal for a company to sell a phone which is up to my speak and works well and then fore updates on it that completely ruin the running of it. Disable favourite feathers. Hinder WiFi connection and make the phone a product that I would never have bought. It is like breaking in and destroying something. I will never by Samsung again.
Is there a way to avoid this update? My phone has been awful since day 1 and I have only had it for a few months. I cannot afford to lose anything else with these software updates
Update is horrible! Apps don't work, phone is constantly overheating, battery life is really bad, and worst of all, the screen is constantly locking up and the only way to unlock it is to reboot the phone. I've gone from loving my phone to absolute hating it. PLEASE FIX THE PROBLEMS!
Absolute worst update!!!!! Entire phone doesn't work properly!!! Facebook, WiFi, Text messaging, you name it - all messed up!!!!
Absolutely hate this new update. Using the keyboard is now a slow progress, there's just the slightest hint of lag that throws off the entire thing. Predictive text is an absolute joke, not to mention they've changed the layout of where the emojis sit (I liked being able to seamlessly scroll through them vertically, not scrolling through pages horizontally), and now they've done the Apple thing and once you've used a punctuation mark and hit space, it automatically goes back to the alphabet keyboard. Minute issue, but annoying all the same. I have issues with the wifi not connecting properly, even with high speed internet and all other devices in the house working well, and when I disconnect from wifi I can't use mobile data, even though it isn't in airplane mode and mobile data is definitely turned on. Facebook keeps showing not only old posts, but doesn't update the posts, even if I refresh it, doesn't always allow me to post pictures, instead just goes back to the newsfeed, when hitting back from a comments section it randomly decides between going back to the last page and going back several pages to the newsfeed again. Restarting the app doesn't help. Random apps on my phone will allow me to open them but will shut down within minutes, if not seconds of me opening it. The worst fault though is the battery span. There are days where I have had my phone die twice after a full recharge when I used to maybe have to recharge it in the afternoon. Just last night I did a full recharge, checked it and saw it was at 100%, unplugged it and it had already dropped to 98%. My usage hasn't changed, I only have wifi on, screen brightness is set really low, nowhere near as many applications as I used to run, and it dies much much faster than before. Absolutely appalled at this update. I want my phone to be how it used to be!
Y DID YOUS MOVE THE NEWS BIT???? Were we could scroll left and read news now its gone wtf!!
