Since this update I cannot change the text message font size default on my S7 Active. Volume key only changes ring tone volume. Can pinch and change size but it only works for that message and then goes back to small default size. No "More" option on message screen to change settings and "Chatbots"? WTF? Font size change in display settings changes for ALL text which I don't want.
Also, after restart, takes much longer to load icons.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
New update kills my battery in one day. In the past, with the same usage phone was very energy efficient.
This latest text update is the worst. In order to delete messages you have to select every single one at a time there is no select all which is BS fix it please

AnonD-748373, 30 Mar 2018after updating my phone last night..took a game(mobile legends) this morning, phone got lag or... moreMy phone is dead after the update! They cannot even reformat it at the samsung store and now they want me to replace the motherboard! My phone did not have an issue before today and i only use it for regular stuff... i am not even a gamer!!!!
The recent galaxy S7 update messed up all of my notifications. I had to go in and reset every single one of them as to whether I wanted a notification and whether or not I wanted to see it on my lock screen.
The latest update broke my s9 to the point it won't work as a 3G or 4G phone any longer. I had to revert back to my s8 and ignore the update. Samsung keeps trying to point me to my carrier and Samsung USA is telling me to fly a kite because it is an international phone. Fun times.
Barrettguy92, 02 Apr 2018I don't know what the hell samsung was thinking with this POS update but I am SERIOUSLY thinki... moreSame exact thing happened to me. I contacted Samsung technical service about all of the messaging issues since the update, they came onto my phone remotely, and totally screwed it up. It took me an hour to get it back to normal. Their final suggestion after an hour and a half, and forwarding to two supervisors: Reflash or put the phone back to factory settings. They said nothing in the update can be fixed or undone because if was sent as part of the Android update. We are stuck with this until the next update.
My Galaxy S7 was 100% charged this morning. Two hours later it was down to 65% and it had not been used and no updates to apps. Also, it is taking much longer to charge. The last update was horrible also. All the icons on my home page disappeared and for about two weeks I kept loosing all or part of the icons and had to keep updating my home page. And these are not the only problems I have had. My sister loves her IPhone and if these updates keep messing up my phone I will have to seriously consider another android or the IPhone.
defy, 06 Apr 2018Just updated the S7, the phone heats up and drains battery so quick!!
The phone is still war... moreYep!! Not just warm, downright HOT.
I was offered a certified refurbished replacement. I was furious because I just bought this phone 10 weeks earlier. Wouldn't send me another brand new phone. I still have the dud!! Battery doesn't last 4 hrs

Very Mad, 04 Apr 2018Samsung update has ruined our lives. Battery drains until dead...can not even conduct business... moreAll you can do now is to factory reset it. The Apple did something similar with their iOS updates.
The battery drains in no time. The factory reset went a long way to restoring it, but it still isnÂ’t like
it used to be. I learned about the updates the hard way, IÂ’ll think twice before doing anything of
that nature again.
Samsung update has ruined our lives. Battery drains until dead...can not even conduct business. Of coarse their fix..buy a Samsung 9 and get one free. Seldom get 4G when I had it continually. Removed all apps so location not tracking me. This sucks sucks sucks
My phone is only 5 months old. Hate the situation big time
Wifi issues, FB and Youtube gliches, MMS and group text messeging etc...My S7 was perfect and now they scrued it up with these updates...unbelevibile what they doing😠
Phone is slow, losing charge faster, keyboard changed, can't select multiple people people at once for group text... (have to select start after each name)then it only lets me do like 5 at a time too.
Consider this, all these frustrating issues are part of a design. A plan to get you out the phone you are comfortable with in order to sell you a new one!
The manufacturer isn't making money on your old phone. So they bug their own "update" and then the customer gets frustrated with apps/phone that were working flawlessly before the update.
They then drag their feet with regard to customer service and fixing the issues. Hoping you will get frustrated and go buy a new phone.
And they will continue to do this over and over, year after year, unless we call them out and make them fix the issues they created!
