Absolutely hate this latest update. Battery life now rubbish, fast-charging no longer exists and I feel like they have taken over my phone by changing the layout to how they want it. It is my phone and I had it exactly how I wanted it but now I don't know where stuff is and I'm wasting so much time getting to things whereas before I just went straight to my things. Icons are all over the place. The clock on the home screen is rubbish, I used to just click on it to bring up the alarms etc but now I have to have the clock app on the home screen to do this as it just brings up the weather when I click on the time. I really wish I could uninstall this. My contract for this phone ends in October and I definitely won't get another Samsung if this is how they operate. I may even upgrade early and pay the difference just to get rid of this phone. I am so angry about this.
Dave, 27 Jul 2018My S7 edge after latest update is so bad. Everything crashes hard including important apps and... moreI'm bombarded by ad pop ups after the latest update. Its Google ads. If I had an emergency I couldn't use my phone ads freeze it up.
Worst update ever. Thanks Samsung for forcing me back to Apple. Your intrusive and unwanted applications have made my decision about my next phone much easier. Until you allow me to control the content that is stored on the device for which I have paid hundreds of dollars, I assure you that I will never again be spending my money on your products.
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...
