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 ?
Samsung update is ridiculous thanks a lot samsung I now cant even see the icons that control the wi fi and g4 never mind tell if they are on ir off ? Samsung (faceless wonders ) what are you playing at . Roll on the new sony phone
The worst upgrade in the history of the world, it feels more like a downgrade than an upgrade the graphics are like something from the nineties I use to love using my phone now i hate the sight of it and I still have one year left of a two year contract left so stuck with this garbage now, I cannot even turn off predictive text which i hate,, used to love Samsung products not anymore very angry and upset now.
Good day to you , I updated my samsung s6 edge a month ago and soon after my phone started rebooting itself at least 5 times per day every day . Help needed . I tried every thing excepted flashing the phone
i hate this latest update!!! if it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!
sack the samsung devs!!!
PhilH, 02 Aug 2017I don't usually bother to post comments or even read blogs, forums, etc. but the latest update... moreCompletely agree my S6 has gone from absolutely fab to absolute rubbish in one update!
Had Samsung for years was all set to get S8 next month but after years of staying away from Apple I think this will push me to an iPhone :-(
Updated S6 today and am so so angry with the extremely poor looking result. It looks so cheap and nasty and is extremely difficult to find things that were so easy. World Clock and Alarms are a disaster. Is there any way you can uninstall an upgrade? This update was a HUGH mistake!!
Shenee, 10 Aug 2017this shit sucks add! and you knew it before you put it on the market! give us our phones back ... moreHi guys I had the same situation all of you here about the new update i hate it ..So what I'll do i factory reset my phone to back to normal because I hate the new updated but the bad things all my lovely photos, etc are gone because i reset my phone.
