A good update to replace this one would be an update on 29 June 2018 that took my phone back to the previous version. Then post the pictures of the third graders that wrote this horrible code.
Terrible update. My battery does not even last a half day. My texts are very lagging when typing them. Settings changed and do not like newlook. Please go back to previous version or else, iPhone may be my next choice.
You said spacifiv bug fixes - you seem to have every part of the software that worked properly. It now uses power twice as fast and in order to charge the phone has to be turned off and then it takes twice as long to charge. Your programers couldn't find time to test but had time to create new graphics to charging and some kink of a goofy looking clock for the locked screen. Most companies learned years ago to test updates
on REAL devices of the same models being updated!!!!
Just goes to show it doesn't matter how much you pay for your phone you don't have control over it. I have emailed, rung Samsung here in NZ. Told them they needed to talk to whoever to get this latest update fixed, otherwise they will be losing a lot of customers!! I even had a nightmare over this. Hope they fix it soon!! Just terrible! Doesn't get fixed, bye bye Samsung!!
My Samsung s7, keeps prompting me to update. Currently it works perfectly fine without the update. After reading all these comments, I'm not going to update .. ever. Thanks so much everyone.

I've noticed with text messages that the most recent message isn't staying at the bottom of the thread. It makes it very difficult to read a conversation when it jumps around all the time!

All my texts sound the same. Many of my settings have changed. If I wanted a new phone, I would've bought one. So useless and frstrating!!!!
Since the update, I am not receiving my calls, my tone for a text sounds, but there is no message. Thanks a lot for ruining a phone I had for over a year with no issues at all
I am sorry to have allowed the update! I have lost my individual tones for texts- a very important feature to me. Will never buy another Samsung!
My blue tooth worked perfect until this update, but not now besides all the other problems mentioned by others. It's a big deal being a truck driver!!!
Ever since update 1 week ago, my phone emits the tone for a message at 6:05 every morning. There is no notification of any kind. The only solution I've found is to turn off the volume every night. I don't like the new look either!
If this is a Samsung tactic to force everyone to buy new devices and crash everything, I can say wholeheartedly that I will never buy another Samsung device. This update has crashed my phone, made it ridiculously slow and I'm beyond disgusted with this whole thing. Whatever team at Samsung that wrote this update and approved the forced upload should be fired immediately.
Software update now has me wondering who I'm getting a text from - I want my customized individual text notifications back!
Anyone hearing when they're fixing this ridiculous mess?
Miss M, 23 Jun 2018I hate, hate the new update! This is no longer the phone I bought. I'm having the same problem... moreI agree. What happened to it? I keep telling myself i need to turn it off and bavk on. My messager doesnt show i have messages either..
Galaxy S7 Active kept pestering me to update. I finally let it. Big mistake! Now multiple apps are crashing upon opening. What is happening?!
I have always been an android user and Samsung has always been my choice. After the update today, I can't say I will remain a Samsung user. Why did they have to make these changes??? Photo app is a disaster now. WAZE locks up, I can't access my SD card because the app automatically closes itself before I can access it. Texting is ridiculously slow. If I had the money to buy a new phone, it wouldn't be a Samsung and I would just give this one away because I am fed up! We spend too much money on these phones and the carriers to have to accept these issues.
New update is absolutely horrible! Phone rings several times before showing who's calling, texting is at a crawl! I have an S7 Edge, never any issues until now. Waze app freezes and closes, battery is very hot, charges really slow and drains fast! Please fix this Samsung! I can't argue with my husband that Android is better than iPhone if this keeps up!
