WoW! My phone is completely different. I have no idea how to even work on the settings. My contacts are huge & text is small. I usually turn my phone when texting & now the screen don't turn with it. I like the update but the keyboard is bigger for me when I turn it, because I am blind in my left eye. The settings are confusing. How the heck do you make the screen turn with the phone???? Ive looked everywhere. When my phone turns to sleep mode, a smaller version of my background stays on.
This update is by far the worst. I've been a loyal Galaxy fan for a long time but the end of my patience is near. Nougat sucks. It is affecting my conference calling which is costing me money. Is anyone else's phone not functioning properly with multiple lines everyone complains I sound like I'm underwater and cannot understand me????? Also the fonts are hard to read.

This last update has left a real bad taste and my loyalty to samsung is gone! I no longer can use my conference calling. The minute I merge calls in everyone complains they cannot understand me. The whole phone is a nightmare they can keep.

There was nothing wrong with it before- now I leel like I have a stranger in my pocket!!
My Galaxy S7 updated yesterday morning and since then is virtually unusuable. The font is too small and illegible. My calendar is useless, because I can't read anything on it. There is a white circle around many apps. How do I roll it back?!? My next phone will be an iPhone!
HOW DO I UN-INSTALL THE UPDATE?
Samsung should be in jail for what they to the phone.
Or is this their way to get one to upgrade the phone?
Graham , 21 May 2017Totally agrer. Effecting my business badly Hi graham, if your phone is freezing you may want to try Pakage disabler Pro from the playstore. After uninstalling a load of bloatware my s7 (on Vodafone UK) is running like a dream. Just read about it before you start to disable too many packages but remember you can always re-able the packages at the touch of a button, I've done that loads of times without any problems whatsoever.
May, 20 May 2017Since the last software update in May 2017, not only my Samsung Galaxy 7 sucks battery, but EV... moreSame here....battery draining faster. My phone is also locking when it gets to 25% when the messages appear on the screen.
Got my s7 in March and immediately "upgraded" to Nougat 7.... I have NO problems with battery drain. Example... I charge phone to full before going to sleep at Midnight. When I wake at 7am the phone will have gone from 100% down to either 99% or at worst 98% now I think that would be pretty normal. The phone lasts a good 24 hours on just that one charge (and that includes using the known dreaded battery killer Skype a couple of times through the day) Now that is without using either of the battery saving options available to you. Ok so then I tried the MID (customized) option and turned off WIFI and data (just turning them on maybe once an hour to check messages etc) and couldn't believe it but I got a magical 46hrs out of the s7 from one charge and I make a lot of calls through the day, say around 4/5 hours worth and of course as an android fan I like to experiment with downloading different apps and just generally playing with the phone... Then I tried the MAX battery saving option and quite frankly the battery lasted so long I got fed up waiting to see how long it would last and turned that option off. I have since downloaded (from Playstore) "Package disabler pro" which has enabled me to disable a lot of the Junk Bloatware that Samsung seem to want to force on to us, and this has also helped with battery life and better still my already smoothly operating s7 is now working at lightening speed. If you do decide to download Package disabler pro PLEASE READ UP ABOUT IT BEFORE USING IT as there are certain obvious packages you don't want to disable such as operating system, however it's easy to re-enable anything you have disabled just by clicking on it again. I have disabled over 100 useless packages and it's amazing the difference it has made. Good luck with your s7's guys
I hate this new update! Why keep updating when the previous one works fine. The letters are too, light & small especially on my telephone contacts, time & weather. I can hardly see though I'm wearing eyeglasses. This is not friendly for older people who have eye problems. I've enjoyed my S3 but this S
I've enjoyed my S3 the reason I bought this S7 edge however, I am so unhappy with the new updates. I'd rather swap this with iPhone.
So. I installed the latest software update.
I can't even come pass the starting screen
It shuts down, starts up, -few seconds later, shuts down again. THE WHOLE TIME.
I can't use my phone anymore. Didn't have ANY problems before this update.
I see you have similar problems. What de hell is this shit and how do I fix it.
Bafbakkes, 19 May 2017I have the exact same prblm! It keeps shutting down and my battery tot sooooo worse! Afwul update!Totally agrer. Effecting my business badly
Since the last software update in May 2017, not only my Samsung Galaxy 7 sucks battery, but EVERY DAY in the evening, specially when it´s 25% of the battery, it gets blocked and there is nothing to do about it. Not even pressing at the same time the volume key and so on. The only solution I found so far, is to plug it in.. but if I´m in the street or I have to make an urgent phone call... just simply, this last update is the worst thing they have done
i used to fall asleep with my phone at 100% and it'd drain to maybe 95% by the time i woke up. now it drains to 75% and loses a ton of battery when i'm not using it during the day, and even more when i am. notifications show up late and when i click on a notification, the app will open around a minute or more later. what the hell is up with this?
A new update and there's always someone complaining
We should take security a little more seriously, have any of you heard of the internet, what is this? The stone age?
Marshmallow was way better. Don't know why I updated to nougat. Samsung sucks.
Animations are drastic and smoothness Is completely gone.
Please fix it.
I hate it. I hate the screens. I hate the colours. I hate the notifications. And they're all too bloody small. Haven't even tested anything else. Can I go back 24 hours?
