My S7 edge after latest update is so bad. Everything crashes hard including important apps and my SD card doesn't even work properly via camera save and corrupted photos all over the place.
And don't get me started with the battery life that shit drains faster than a suction pump draining shit from a portaloo.
Samsung PLS FIX!
Immediately after the recent update on S7 edge... battery drain issues (usually out of power in 8 hours with wifi and bluetooth off, brightness at 50%. Was 12 to 16 hours before the update), random phone restarts while browsing the web, slow performance in some apps, and having difficulty coming out of sleep mode. Thought it was me, so deleted a bunch of apps and files, to no avail. I do have an additional 128 GB added to it.
Prior to the update, I comfortably suggested android and samsung to friends. Can't do that presently without a bit of shame.
just awful update..hate everything about it..nothing works as it did before...come on Samsung, fix this
Can't use text messages can use most of my apps everything is forced closed my phone is no more useful than a figit spinner
How the heck can I uninstall this update? My battery runs out in half the time now. My icons all changed and are hard to see. I keep getting Samsung Notifications on my home screen and can't seem to turn them off. I am so annoyed! Can this be uninstalled?
Both my husband and I have the same phones. Both are draining batteries at a ridiculous rate, apps close in the middle of using, I'm getting notifications from random things I haven't signed up for, and as weird as this is, my husband can only answer his phone on speaker. Very frustrated with this recent "update"
With the new update the touch keys have been lighting up for me. Before I had them turned off, but now I cannot do that anymore and they light up often. They are annoying, hurt my eyes, and use up battery. If you know how to turn it off please tell me it is driving me crazy.
My phones was working fine before as soon as the update came out I started having issues connecting to my network. The battery drains extra fast. Now when I try to play music it defaults to muted and I have to manually turn it up each time. Considering how much I listen to music and books from my phone when in the car this is very annoying. I called Samsung support about it and the troubleshooting did not work.
seriously how do these people get away with screwing up so many peoples lives...how many accumulated hours go into the average person desperately trying to get their phone working or dealing with their own corcumstancial stressors that arise from a phone that went from functional (i know lucky me) to a piece of shit after it was up dated.....fuck em i went out and bought an lg....i have some lube handy to make this experience a little less painful. .....
Ever since I did the update there have been several issues. My phone lags, I have a black screen when recieving a call so I don't even know who is calling. My location doesn't update automatically I have to manually set it and then it sometimes says I'm somewhere else in the country. Text message notifications either non existent or wrong number it'll say one message then when I open the app I see 10 or more. The keyboard is super slow while swiping. Battery doesn't last and phone gets really hot, plus many more issues. Samsung needs to do something it's not fair to the consumers to have to keep buying a new phone every 2 years. My phone cosmetically looks brand new but seems like I'm going to have to replace it due to the issues I'm having. But if they don't do something I'm going to have to purchase another brand.
Does anyone know how to fix Pandora issues. I put off updates because I know they usually break more than they fix but eventually I get tired of postponing. Well after the latest update I have to manually start Pandora when connected to car stereo(Kenwood x995) which worked perfectly before. And even after manually launching it, my stereo always says "check device" and I am unable to skip, thumb up, or thumb down through stereo and no music info is displayed. I have unpaired and repaired, uninstalled and reinstalled pandora and still the same issues. This is very frustrating as I spend a lot of time in my car and don't want to have to futz with my phone while driving. Very lame that an update would break things as the purpose is to fix things. I will not by another Samsung but need this fixed.
Well forget the forced stop on Gear VR and Device Maintenance, updating all external apps and restarting the phone (all recommended in other forums....) NOT FIXING THE PROBLEM. These apps are not uninstallable and turn themselves back on at will it seems.
Samsung, you gotta do better than this....
Well I wish I had read this forum before I accepted this update just yesterday on my S7 Edge. Experiencing ALL the same problems with massive battery drain. Seems that Beaming Service and Gear VR Service apps are the culprits. Forcing them to stop and will see what ensues...
Well at least it's not only just me, but the update constantly is make me close any app I try to use because it crashes. I feel like we should all report the apps before closing them, as many times as you can. Eventually Samsung will hear us out.
My battery was completely draining within an hour and would only charge if powered off. I installed Battery Guru by AsanteMobile and within a couple days it cooled down and started working normally. Either this app fixed it or they pushed and update without telling me.
The Samsung update is horrible! At first I thought it was just my phone having the issues with the battery life, but now I understand that it's the update. I'm becoming so frustrated! I was a die-hard Samsung fan, but this update is making me contemplate on switching to something else. Bye-bye Samsung!
So annoyed by this update. My phone was working perfectly and now it is a nightmare. So many little annoying things now don't work. Ahhh!!!!!!!! PLEASE FIX IT!!!!!!!!
I am horrified that Samsung have broken what was a perfectly good Galaxy S7, just as my contract is due for upgrade. My phone was perfect before and now the battery doesn't last even half a day and everything has changed for the worse. It's clearly a tool to try and get you to upgrade your phone but it's making me think twice about wanting another Samsung.
