Since the June 2018 Samsung update my S7 will not charge unless it is turned off. If I leave the phone on it beeps and a warning notice appears that tells me that the charging port is wet. Also, the end of the charging wire gets very hot. Besides this I also needed to delete items in order to perform the 1.6gb update. I am hoping that there will soon be some fixes!
Congrats Samsung. You have become Apple. Throttle the battery and then run background apps that suck the battery dry. Can't believe you removed the option to put different tones on text message accounts. That was an awesome option. Would rather have that than some of this new stuff you added. My clock was fine. It didn't need improvement. Obsolescence by design. I appreciate your efforts to look at other options as the time to replace this phone sped up as quickly as my battery now dies
I hate this new update. I can't assign custom notifications tones. I like to know who is texting without looking to know if I want to see it. I sent to go back to the old version!
Has anyone heard if they are going to fix this horrible update or if there is a way to revert back?
FIX MY PHONE! This update has cost me countless issues!! Basically the same as all the other posts that I have been reading! I use my texting app for work, A LOT, and now I never know when I receive a text unless I constantly look at my phone. I have been on the phone with my service provider trying get help from them...to no avail. Just wasted even more time! This is RIDICULOUS! We don't even get the choice of the update NOR can we get it reversed! IF there is a way to UNDO what YOU have done....DO IT!!!!!!!!! ALL OF IT!!!!
totally agree with all the comments above about how much this new update from Samsung is the worst. All they are trying to do is force us into buying the latest and greatest new phone and any of the older versions will eventually break down purposefully so we have to buy a new phone. I have seen comments for years on message boards and sent to Samsung about features they took away and customers are not happy about but yet nothing is done about it. If they don't want android people to become iPhone people, they need to do something about these issues.
After update bluetooth is malfunctioning. Worked awesome until the day I updated. How can I revert?
Never before has and update caused so many problems.
This is the worst ever Samsung why??? Please let me go back to the old version takes up memory I don't have conflicts with programs slows the phone down the map feature isn't working because it gets frozen anytime another app butts in have to shut the phone down lose the map directions it's ridiculous help
Phone was fine would stay charged all day. Now the battery power goes from 100% to 68% in two hours. I have even turned off apps and notification to save battery power nothing works. Samsung fix it back please.
I agree with all the others. A lot of the changes seem unecessary and annoying. Why Samsung?! Why?!?!
Updated my S7 last weekend. Phone battery power now sucks, literally, the battery so fast now. Phone overheats or gets hot to touch. Nothing works as our previously did. Had to delete apps and clear cookies, cache just to install this monstrosity. What gives?
Agree. Please return the custom notifications, the keyboard so I can switch to voice recognition in the middle of typing a message, and stupid emotions don't look like kissy face but someone holding back a burp. And the icon for MYSELF in messaging?? Unnecessary. Annoying, I'd rather have that quarter inch for more message visibility..
Agree with most disgruntled comments. Battery life significantly worse even with this new "optimize" option. Had to redo fonts. Annoying notification sounds now play and can't get rid of one even after going into "notification" and "sound" sections. Was able to change the ridiculous home screen background back to a normal looking clock but no intuitive way of doing this easily. PLEASE FIX BATTERY LIFE ISSUE!!!
Worst update ever. No longer have notifications, home screen looks like a kindergarden worbook and i need to recharge every four hours.
Fix the problems, okay, but leave the features stable. Not having settable notifications for texts and others was one reason I got this phone. Stacked hours and minutes......?
I loved my Samsung Fast Charging Platform. Now it does not fast charge.
You spend all this money on the phone and accessories and now they don't work properly,
I think Samsung is doing this because their rolling out a new phone!
This is criminal!
This sucks big time. Contacts and notifcations are all screwed up. Not receiving my notifications from individual apps. We should be told what is changing before they do the update.
