What has happened...
Everything is just a mess now! And why did they have to change the keyboard setup?! It now takes ages to type a message, especially if you like to use emojiis, good luck finding them 😭
Have been a loyal Samsung customer for many years, but after this update I'm reconsidering. As many others have said, the phone is now a mess. It takes FOREVER to complete any tasks because the phone now runs so slowly. The addition of many nagging and unnecessary features, like the Giphy keyboard (really?) Keyboard is simply a disaster. Battery dies at warp speed. No text notifications - if I even click on the messages, all are immediately viewed as 'read'. Very frustrating and just a reminder that like any other business, samsung isnt concerned about their customers - they are only concerned with forcing them to buy new products. Absolutely shameful, and I haven't even finished buying the phone yet.
This is the worst update they've ever done. I'm going to go buy an iPhone. What were they thinking and when are they going to fix it. I am so aggravated!
Tom, 08 Jul 2018The Samsung Galaxy S7 battery was never great, but since this stupid update, the battery runs ... moreThe battery is diabolical. What was once good is now rubbish and the fast charge plug is now slow charge.
Not so impressed, 09 Jul 2018This update has wrecked my phone - I want it back the way it was. I agree it's pants now. All these stupid notifications say at the top of the phone and reminders you've got those notifications at the top of your phone every half hour! Battery life depletes in no time and fast charge is no longer fast. Samsung have failed this time!
My galaxy s7 after the update on July 5 2018 I have problems sending pictures and taking pictures is just grey color it is causing problems in my job I have to take a lot pictures every day but at the time to see the pictures to send it surprise!!! Is none of the pictures I take just gray color screen damm I will be fire from my job just for this update system...is any way I can get back my old system????
S7 oreo Verizon update
What pain in the .....
Deleted cache... no help
Verizon store oh you ..need a new phone.. BS!
I didn't add anything just did update.... Charging constantly...
If it was winter ( Great pocket warmer)
What I did find from Google when tried to get help was my Google backup no longer works due to Verizon deleting service and using their's instead. And only defaults to contracts but if I want I can pay for more storage (money maker for Verizon)
I ended up using (Samsung smart switch) stored it on my sd card in phone. Did a factory reset.
Restored using smart switch. Then reloaded apps from google and amazon.
Now phone is working excellent for me!
So the only things not working right are my messages it keeps switching to chat mode! It's annoying I liked my messages the way they were before! Another thing is all my live screen themes from the official Samsung theme store stopped working... The lock screen shows the picture frozen it doesn't move. And it's all themes like that not just the ones I own. This update broke more than it fixed... CHANGE it!!!

the update to my phone is straight BS! I no longer have the ability to assign custom notification tones to my contacts, the GIF keyboard pops up when it damn well feels like it. Photos are also an issue, my back up has had to be manually synced multiple times since the updates... so annoying! does anyone have a fix?????
This update has wrecked my phone - I want it back the way it was.
My music shuts off after pausing it. All it takes is 1 minute and it shuts off. Play music, or pandora, it doesn't matter which music sources. All does the same.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 battery was never great, but since this stupid update, the battery runs down in a morning with minimal use and yet the device maintenance screen tells me it is optimized! What a bunch of garbage....made this phone useless.
Photos won't load to messenger... photos stop running device maintenance stops running also
Arrrrrrrgggghhhhh. Why since updating have I been asked 35 times which texting keyboard I want? Is this to try and force me back to using the Samsung one and not the paid for SwiftKey. Sooooo annoying. Plus I keep getting asked about using a Samsung account. Most annoying update ever
Hate the new update more useless shit I'm never going to use. plus put my old clock on the screen page back the way it was.
I'll never update a phone again without waiting for some time for them to fix the bugs. I can no longer edit my photographs decently all of the settings are standard you have to pick one of their tones you can't lighten or darken, the message apps have changed it is an absolutely messed up lousy update. Why can't they bring it back and does posting on this site have anything to do with Samsung at all? Shouldn't we all be talking to them?
