My FB messenger keeps disconnecting from the network, this came after the S7 update.
Not happy with this update at all!! I had all my text message notifications customized so I knew by the sound who was texting me and now that is gone! Up to this point I had been very happy with Samsung but not now, hope this can be fixed!!
Just had a message from Samsung. It is no longer a feature that you can set individual text tones. Not there, not going to ever be there. Great. Going to find a messaging service that will do individual tones
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2018This update has destroyed my phone. It seems everything is glitching. Help!i have had the same problems as all previous comments i have read
solution was quite simple: go to settings, in apps, and make sure that any disabled core apps are enabled. then reboot.
everything then worked normal for me
My phone is now glitchy and slow. To open anything takes forever. My email count does not work. Of course they added something to drain my battery after they just fixed that on last update. I don't get how a company this size can't test there updates to work smoothly.
Everyone calm down i am also a victim like you people. I have s7 edge i updated my device to 8.0 and believe me it really sucked so bad it killed my phones battery in less than 12 hours ... and background usage is too damn high, slow response night clock was one of my favourite options back in 7.0 but in this version they put it in somewhere edge screen option and is not same as before. I reverted back to official 7.0 you can easily revert back dont worry download the firmware from samsungfirmwares.org or sammobile and use odin to flash it very simple straight and easy. Its way much more better in 7.0 than 8.0 ... nougat was the best and still is the best for these phones s7 and s7 edge respectively.
Worst update ever ive had on this phone This update has made many of my quality-of-life apps useless. Twilight no longer works functionally and I can only use Samsung's built in Blue Light Filter, which is objectively worse. Nova launcher doesn't work as well anymore and all of my app notifications changed-- I had to go back and reset them manually. None of this winds up bricking my phone...
But if this is a ploy to make my current phone less attractive and a shitty s9 more attractive you are failing miserably-- what the heck Samsung?
New Samsung oreo update is garbage. Every single feature I enjoyed is no longer available. Why would you remove the single most useful feature which is the notification tones? It's like this new update went backwards. It's a downgrade, not an update. Please have this feature return in new the new 8.0
This update has destroyed my phone. It seems everything is glitching. Help!
Anyone else have the Samsung keyboard snap-on accessory cover??? After the latest update, whenever I press the symbol key, afterwards the space bar puts out the letter "b" instead of a space. I have to remove the keyboard & put it back on it to reset. It happens consistently every time, since the update. Never did this before. Makes the keyboard accessory useless. Now thinking about getting a Blackberry for my next phone.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2018I agree with all the others. A lot of the changes seem unecessary and annoying. Why Samsung?! ... moreThis is the single worst update ever.
Nothing works properly. Calls, messages, notifications, gps,... i need it reversed....any help???
New S7 update ... Now I have NO data. No phone calls, no texts, only Wifi works. Been on it with straight talk for hours with no luck. Factory reset my phone as well. Anyone else have this issue?! Terrible update.
Same issues with new update! It sucks!!! Lost my personalized message tones. Lost my macro setting in my camera. Plus other camera settings. Phone gets hotter more often too. Wish I could reverse this. Had no problems before!! This needs to be fixed ASAP!!!
Customized notifications are gone...Why?? That was the best feature I used the most!! Now I have no idea if I'm getting a text (or from who), an email, an update or anything else because everything now sounds the same. This sucks!! VERY disappointed Samsung, Very disappointed!!!
Since the update my phone screen will randomly go black and the screen will not turn back on! It takes at least 5 min before the screen will turn on. I enjoyed my phone until this update! Now I regret switching from an iPhone. And the rest of the update sucks as well!
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2018Terrible update. Phone is much slower than before, battery issues, charging issues. This is ... moreI agree, a class action suit should be filed because it's NOT the same phone purchased now after updates..
Amazing how they can build such sophisticated devices yet in the hands of the update software people they completely have the ability to RUIN YOUR PHONE !!!!!!!!!!!
This is my fifth or sixth update and other than the first update the ABSOLUTE WORST !!!!!
I lost so many of the handy functions that I loved with this phone when I first bought it.
One month later that first update in March of 2017.. RUINED THE PHONE !!!!
I WILL NEVER EVER BUY ANOTHER GALAXY PHONE.. EVER EVER NEVER !!!
UNLESS ... They start including a message in an update that you can choose to NOT
have anything changed on your phone. How friggin' hard can that be to do..
So So SOOOO angry and disappointed at what was once a great phone now I HATE it because of so many updates since I bought it a year and a half ago.
Group icons are getting lost once the phone is restarted or switched back on.
Go to settings, notifications, then press advanced and you will see all the apps that are blocked. You can click on each and change the settings.
