I've been running the G920VVRU4DQF3 update on my Verizon Samsung Galaxy S6 for about a week and my battery life has been terrible since the update. I haven't noticed any of the issues that others have pointed out, but I'm hoping Verizon/Samsung gets this broken update fixed.
Everything on my phone is crashing messages, internet and my apps are crashing from the new os update! It is nearly impossible to use anything on my PHONE! Is there a way i can remove the update? I have uninstalled and reinstalled apps and still no different...
After the recent firmware update, my phone today suddenly switched off. And after that it is rebooting at its own. After factory reset, it is getting hanged at initial google set up wizard. And it shows message that 'unfortunately google services has stopped.'
I HATE the new update!!! My phone will change settings on the phone by itself. The ringer will turn on after I mite it. The auto brightness will turn back on after I turn it off. My Wi-Fi freezes up all the time. The new keyboard is ridiculous. If I miss a call I have to search for it because the shortcut on my phone won't show it anymore. I hate this update it needs to be fixed ASAP!!
Ran this latest update and not only did it crash my otherwise fabulous phone, it deleted everything on my sim card. The battery life is now nil and I've had to re-install all of my apps. Samsung, what the ^&$%%$W are you thinking?? Please fix it now!!

The keyboard is JACKED. If I try to Emoji the email is disabled. If I try to use another type of keyboard like SwiftKey it automatically goes back to the Samsung Galaxy keyboard which doesn't work. I don't know what to do!?
My galaxy note 4 is now 1 year old since new purchase from Verizon, since the latest Samsung update it has been acting very strange.Took the phone into Verizon and was told that the pnone model was almost 4 years old.( I have only owned it new 1year).
I got upset and asked the Vernon clerk should I expect to pay $600+ for 1 year for a SMART Phone?
He said I cannot remove the update, told me to talk with Samsung.
I am thinking about a possible law suit over this.
Think about this for a min... if like me some of you are experiencing problems getting onto WiFi, then when you do eventually connect it's so slow you turn it off and use your own data.
Now I switch to wifi when I get home in the evenings normally but like I say, have been unable to since this latest update.
I've now used up all my data for the first time ever so have had to purchase more... could our network providers also be in on this?? Could the people who are responsible for sending us these sub standard updates be taking a backhander off the network companies? Just a thought x
This morning my Samsung S6 is displaying a request to install yet another software update,, this time "Version: G920FXXU5EQG7/G920FEVR5EQG1/G920FXXU5EQF1" "Size: 93.23 MB" . There is no information on what fixes and or enhancements are incuded in this update and no information to say who the authors (i.e. Samsung or Google or someone else) of this update are. The only options are Install Later, Install Overnight or Installl Now. There is no option to delete/dismiss the install. Interestingly, my wife who also has a Samsung S6 has not received any Software Update requests and is running on a much older version of the software. So why am I being targeted for this "update" ? Can I trust it ? - probably not, and where has it come from ? Samsung, Google or someone else ?
This new update sucks! Is there anything that can be done to change it back? I HATE this. I've had nothing but trouble since updating!
iphone here I come. Thanks Samsung for helping me with this AWFULLY hard decision, lol.
OMG! I wake up, an I'm forced to do the update whether I like it or not. Again. This time is keeps freezing up while I'm doing a text. Says the Samsung keyboard cannot connect. I have to go into the regular Apps Settings, and continuously choose the Swype keyboard. Then I have to go back to enter a text, click the Swype icon on the keyboard, and re-select the Swype keyboard as my Default! Guess the people who make up these ridiculous UPDATES for Samsung, work for Apple so as to convert us to Apple products!!?? Then I figured out that the culprit is when I select EMOTICONS. It sets things in motion and freezes my keyboard time after time. Now I have to either create chaos in my life, or un-learn a habit. Either way, I just would like an OPTION of NOT choosing their beloved and terrible Updates!!
I have just updated mine what kind of issues are you experiencing 17/8/17 Thanks David...
This new update is terrible! It's taking perfectly spelled words & changing it to something completely different. It's taking clearly misspelled words & adding it into the memory as a new word! I want the old keyboard back & the old autocorrect.
AnonD-692685, 17 Aug 2017I was recently "requested" to update my Samsung S6 firmware and the result has been a disaster... moreI absolutely agree. The new update is shocking. I have an extensive list of all the features I now no longer have. Hate it, hate it, hate it.
Sooooo now I can't receive text messages. Horrible. I still refuse to go back to Iphone but this is the worst update. Unfortunately I need my text messaging for business.
I was recently "requested" to update my Samsung S6 firmware and the result has been a disaster (there was no option to not do the update). WiFi calling no longer works and I normally use this a lot. Also, the phone now struggles to register to a usable mobile signal and when it does, it usually has to be rebooted before it is possible to use any mobile internet features. To say I am unhappy about this "update" would be a considerable understatement, it is a huge quantum leap backwards. For me, a mobile phone is not a toy, it is an essential tool for both domestic and work life. I want to go back to the previous version of the firmware. How do I do this? I doubt I'll be getting another Samsung phone after this.
This is update is rubbish !!!! I didnt want the update it did it itself ,my phone is slow like I have a virus now and apps stop responding at least 5-10 times a day will be switching phones if this is not fixed soon ..Would anyone know how to reverse an update on Samsung s6 ?
