Yep...awful update. Font stinks, colors are hard to see, additional steps to send a text. Seems antiquated and a definite step back!
Phone updated last night and I wake up to everything different and I can't stand it. The emoji I used the most, the cheeky one, is gone. Camera is harder to snap and share. Makes no sense.
I just hate the latest update. I am fine with the looks but the main problem for me is the spell check and auto complete. In the past, it used to access my contact library and check whenever I start typing an email and give me suggestions. Now it's not the only thing that stopped. The spell check work horribly. Even my name it's not remembering. Sometime, normal words like quick is changed to sonethi g totally different and stupud. I went to Samsung help center and they had no answer. They said we are sorry that this is not available anymore but we can't down grade unfortunately. They admit that the old software was better but there us nothing they can do. This is reminding me bit of Nokia at the start of it's fall. They launched the update for they communicator that is full of Buggs and from that time it was downhill.
Also hate the s7 update
No longer user friendly
All the setting buttons are useless and changing anything is hard as S@#& bc I can't find what I'm looking for in the settings
Used to be so easy. Hate the white screen and and sending messages takes an extra step
How are any of these features
'New' or improved??? Ridiculous

Dont hate on a update just because you havent explored it enough to know whats going on!
Absolutely can not believe the software update to my Edge 7! Can not stand it. Don't want to own this phone any longer. Hard to read and see front screen. Print small. Icons small and they do not change with my update to font to go larger. Rolling views of alerts and notices and messages are so tiny and in a horrible to read tiny font. The persons who designed this need to be put on cleanup duty around the office!
Man!this update totally sucks!!! I really don't get it. Everything is just so complicated...its no more easy to use. Even the brightness drop down that used to be a slide away is now meddled in between a series of icons. The interface, themes,wallpapers are just weird. Pls how do i undo this update.

This last update has made my screen blink with every open app. Like it is closing and re-opening. It is driving me crazy. I used to love this phone.....

This latest update has changed j... moreI traded in my Sony Xperia Z3 for a Samsung Galaxy S7 last Nov + while I had buyers remorse + felt disappointed within a week, I decided to give it a real chance. The latest update pretty much secured my next upgrade back to the Sony family and affirms no regrets for recommending other top smartphones over Samsung no matter what the reviews say. Fool me once...
While I'm in agreement with everyone's comments, I wanted to add:
1. Auto correct issues were at least laughable at times before the update, admittedly for my Sony phones as well, but now it's as if context is no longer relevent besides having lost all my word history with no dictionary learning in sight since the update. Suggested words makes me think my phone's using alien grammar. Very time consuming fixing all my texts. I used to think Swype allowed me to draft documents faster than an iPad screen, but auto-correct issues requires me to edit edit edit! Backwards move indeed. Smartphone turned dumb phone.
2. Calling someone now requires an extra screen touch or 2 before the call is made. What a time waste! Further to the calling process, was there a point to automatically selecting a contact's number + asking if it should be defaulted? Sounds good in theory, but in practice, I often call all of a contact's numbers in series to track the person down, at which point the default becomes a hindrance + a delay to getting to the call. I suggest one touch to select contact to bring up their details + 2nd touch to pick a number + call is made automatically...like before. 2 steps, done.
3. Email addresses no longer come up automatically as I type in the first few letters. WT* is with having to go to my contact list via the 3 vertical dots @ the top of the email window + sift through the ever growing contact list. Who's contact list is shrinking? Talk about loss of productivity.
My phone has become so painful. While i have to admit that Sony has also done some bad updates in the past that required relearning one's phone, this Samsung update takes the cake. I can see why people want to throw their phone into the nether nether...!
Just done the new update for Samsung Galaxy S7 edge after installing the update I noticed there is no notification tone anymore of messages can someone please tell me how to fix that all my notifications are on please Samsung fix this problem and Wi-Fi is laggingÂ…
Hate the new update. Fonts, colors, keyboard all different. Calling more difficult, no more favorites in phonebook, A really stupid update
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017Yeah my splanner won't even open.. Did anyone contact Samsung to see what the f they can do to... moreTry typing s7 into the "contact us" section of the samsung website, s7 doesn't exist according to the site which means you can't complain to samsung except by phone. Maybe back up everything then factory reset, assuming the phone has such a thing.
The newest S7 update sucks period!.... you know what if it's not broke why try to fix it they're a bunch of retards
I've never written a comment on Anything Online, either....ever.
This update is horrible, I just switched back to a Samsung from Apple an I'm regretting my decision. This needs to be to be corrected!
Is there any way to change this back to the old system????
The new Samsung s7 update is appalling. The keyboard is now much harder to work, my phone has moved into slow motion and the same emails keep coming through. Apart from that the new layout looks very outdated. Why do the updates always make the phone worse.
What happened to Samsung. Most of my company users cannot even receive emails anymore. Emails are not synching for hours and hours. Sometimes you have to be on a certain wifi for it to synch, other times even that wifi wont work. This is crazy. I used to love Samsung, I am a bit disappointed to see that there is no solution for it. I think whoever the developer is forgot to ask Q/A team to take a look at his creation. It f***ing sucks.
