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.

Sharon, 18 Jun 2018I've had terrible problems with my S7 since the "update" (shouldn't updates be improvements?),... more, I was able to fix the clock back to a normal Digital four number display with a colon between it, but I can't remember exactly how I did it. Something about face plate.
My phone is also screwed up after latest update. All apps are lumped together in the APPS folder (not on various screens), lost my Background, lost my font size, etc. etc.
The WORST update ever!
Notification sounds changed - cannot change them back. Battery dying fast. Same issues as everyone else. Very bad update
This is the worst update yet! I can no longer assign specific message tones for people, when I clear my notifications from the notification bar up top it completely clears my notifications from apps so I'm missing some very important stuff, my phone lags, when someone is calling it's just a black screen for a good hot few seconds.. anyone know how to go back to before this update???
i read the comments i want to ask all if you if new upgrades software having problem please tell me how to delete i downloaded but not yet installed how can delete the upgrade software???
I've had terrible problems with my S7 since the "update" (shouldn't updates be improvements?), and I see I'm not the only one. The drain on my battery has been insane, and there are a host of smaller problems I never experienced before. When you spend $500-$1000 on a phone and the company you purchased it from sends out an unwanted update that greatly lowers the value and usefulness of that phone, shouldn't you get a refund? And what's with the stacked clock numbers? It's like some 18-year-old said, "Hey guys, you know what would be cool?" Tech people, catch a clue: Sometimes the best thing to do is NOTHING.
My S7 is now useless, I enjoyed using it until this latest update,my text messages tone doesnÂ’t make a sound or vibrate,among other faults,which everyone is experiencing. What I want to know is, Samsung say the latest update will bring the s7 on a par with the s9 software. I say to Samsung,if I wanted s9 software,I would own a s9 phone
My problem is that Gear RV will not turn off and is draining my battery at the rate of 1% every 5 minutes.
It is not even an app, so I can't turn it off.
Worst update ever! Everything is changed. Hate smaller fonts, where did that stupid pink rabbit come from?? Can I stuff it in it's hat and make it disappear?...I am 60+, don't want a "kiddie" looking phone!
Worst part...screen will no longer auto rotate, can no longer even find a setting to change it back. When you have the phone mounted while driving, all my maps and messages are not in proper orientation. (yes, I know the phone can be turned to landscape, but it won't fit in limited dash mount space) Is there any way to UNDO and choose only the patches? Have advised hubby to just say NO to the update. Samsung, you are better than this. Obviously your customers are not happy, so PLEASE HELP US out here! Give some instructions to go back to old settings. I have spent too many HOURS trying to make my phone usable again. NOT acceptable.

I have bad eyes and loved how the old versions I could see and read everything but not any more. I also hate the new lock screen clock. I have the dual clock set so I can see what time it is where my husband is deployed. The old dual lock screen clock was big since the update it is now. small and not customizable. I've lost all individual ringtones and can no longer set individual ringtones and notifications. All my mail is being marked as read when it hasn't been read. Battery life sucks. The phone lags and over heats.Please remove this new update. As much as I hate to say this, I believe I will be going on a search for new possible iPhone.
my phone is messed up as well .. I have phone numbers in places that are not my numbers. Also missing texting sounds ... I have sounds to let me know who is texting me and now that's gone. Please fix this .. updates should get better not worse... if this doesn't get fixed I will be looking at a different phone as my contract is almost up
Extremely poor battery life on latest s7 edge 8.0... Device idle and cell standby kills your phone... I upgraded it but again i downgraded my os back to 7.0 nougat ... much better and relaiable in terms of battery
