Did the upgrade required last night and now my phone went black and will not turn on. Of course, one year and 4 months after purchase so it's not under warranty. Samsung says ship it back and they'll fix it (with a cost). I have to wait almost 3 weeks for a factory reset of poor quality product with constant updates that only make it worse. Now it doesn't work AT ALL.
You messed up my phone. Please, turn it back. It was fine before and now it's slow and sucks. I hate that it says what I'm opening before it opens the app, yeah, I clicked on it, so I don't need the stupid phone to tell me. Also, the phone is SO SLOW! I hate this update. Please, put it back. The new look is terrible, too. And I miss my old auto words. I had it set up nicely and the update screwed that up, too. Why do you think it's a good idea to change something that was working just fine? Why do you people always screw up everything when we liked it how it was? Everytime! It is so annoying! Stop pulling this! Android was supposed to be better than the stupid iPhones! Why are you screwing everything up all the time??? I'm mad.
Worst update ever. Everything lags so bad. Will stay in sleep mode when someone is calling and I can't answer the phone. Battery drains 25% in less than an hour, phone is constantly running hot. Google maps lags so bad I had to sit for almost 15 minutes in a car before I could get my destination to show. This is a nightmare
This latest software update is absolutely horrible. Everything is so slow and it calls random people and I am unable to answer a call if I'm in another app or even trying to send a text. I am hoping this issue will be fixed ASAP before I head to the store and demand a new phone. It's been since last Friday and it's no better. When I type, it can't even keep up! I'm so over it!
MollysMom, 03 Oct 2018text replies don't show up immediately, i can't even answer the phone when it rings!?!?! I am having the same issues with answering calls, if I am even able to answer them. This update is horrible!!!
With this new update, there is no way to schedule a text message like in the past. What's the since in an update if they take things away?
Have not been able to read all the comments ( so many ) soooo, for what it is worth here are a few of my recent issues since the forced "update" on my 6+ month old S7:
S7 now operates at least 15 degrees F warmer ( no change to basic apps that are running )
Battery will not charge up, stays under 70% or lower no matter what charging method used, unless I turn it off for half a day ( never an issue b4 )
Runs at half speed than b4, has lagging touch and lag in operating any apps
Difficult to receive 4G mobile, 3G typically, boots up at 1X, when I do get 4G, reception db: 113, asm: 0
( note: was 113 db before but with an asm of 25... not zero!! always got 4G mobile data w/asm of ~25 )
And finally: A much much more redonkulous user interface!
My Solution: after 3 days of this, complained to my Telco, they have issued me a different cell phone at no charge, goodbye S7 and goodbye to this POS it has been for these past 6 months. Will avoid Samsung products in the future & will tell my friends. ( now off to buy a new case and Type-C cable)
PLM, 02 Oct 2018How do you assign notification sounds? I tried editing a contact and still did not find an opt... moreWhen you are in the conversation with the contact you want to assign a notification sound to, you then hit the 3 dots in the upper right corner and hit notifications and then hit custom and then hit the setting wheel next to custom and pick what you want.
West update ever. My phone sent random pictures to multiple different contacts without me sending them myself. This is a HUGE concern clearly. Tempted to go buy a different phone tomorrow another than Samsung after being loyal to samsung for 10 years.
My Galaxy is SOOO SLOW since the most recent Sempter Update.
It can't keep up with my fingers and I text. It lags and takes forever to catch up.
It won't load my texts. Once I hit send on a text, it takes forever to either send or show up on the thread.
I have deleted and disabled apps in addition to videos and picture.
Deleted text conversations all in attepmt to make it work properly.
It is constantly freezing, over heating, and the battery dies so fast.
All the apps take forever to load; and even when they do they are still not able to function.
I have no idea why it is acting this way but it is uber annoying when trying to conduct both work and personal calls/emails/text from phone.
text replies don't show up immediately, i can't even answer the phone when it rings!?!?!
Since the update I cannot send nor recieve emails due to security certificate issues. any idea what can be done?
My text messages lag so badly and my phone calls don't show up on my screen right away. It takes a while.
Just thought i would add a notch under this issue. September update has really messed up my phones performance. When I got the 8.0 update, it was crappy then and I had to reset the phone. That made things much better. Now a few months later and it is back to crappy again.
I've noticed a lot of different apps are crashing randomly. Snapchat, Facebook and Facebook messenger, and even normal Messenger app randomly crashes. Also, from power save mode anytime I open messenger it crashes.
with this update I had to change my theme, annoying but doable, but I cant seem to access some of my apps. I am getting text messages days later, I cant get on FB with out it kicking me off saying the app has to close along with it having issues in messenger, and others. It is rather annoying and extremely frustrating. I have notice now when I go to power saver while I am at school and go back my icons stay small and I cant seem get them to go back to normal without restarting my phone.
The update has made my phone un-usable.
Disabling Gear VR did not help. I have been removing the apps but no luck either.
It gets heated. It stucks the worst. The screen blacks out. Then, there is nothing can be done.
The reboot key set (power+volume down) does not help. I have to wait for the battery to drain.
I have run the phone on safe mode, if you call it still a phone, no major issues, no heating or anything.
But immediately after turning off safe mode, it stucked again.
I now turned back to my very old iphone 5s, how nice.
