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.
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2018Worst update ever! Everything is changed. Hate smaller fonts, where did that stupid pink rab... moreSaying no to the update won't work, because Samsung will just go ahead and update your operating system while you are sleeping
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
