Phone is not working after update. Messages won't send or ecieve. Internet connection is not happening. This is such BS. Phone isn't that old. Beyond furious right now.
What a shocker update!!! Everthing was okay until I did S7 update last night. Was like I had to learn a new phone. Some things still not working but I dont have time to research how to return them to previous. Whatever you do, I would avoid latest June 2018 update unless you want to spend hours trying to get it to operate how YOU like it.
The new update is HORRIFIC!!!!! I agree with almost EVERY post here, I canÂ’t assign text tones to any texts anymore I HATE that that feature is gone!!! The battery doesnÂ’t hold a long term charge and the phone gets HOT. The screen lock doesnÂ’t always lock and it isnÂ’t always how I set it, IÂ’ve gone into the settings numerous times! HELP THESE ISSIES SOON OR IÂ’M DONE!!!!!
I think I'm done with Samsung and Verizon after the last few SW updates. This last one has basically rendered my S7 Edge useless. Google Maps and Waze are now worthless. Takes over a minute to come up, then at least 1 minute each to hit search, recognize my location, anything. It now will not become visible when connected via USB to my Windows 10 machine that had no problem before. Also the battery is being drained very quickly and charging is a at a crawl. The maps/GPS apps were getting slow before, but this made them unusable. I wiped the cache, cleared out unused apps, everything to 'clean up' the phone and nothing works. Absolutely unacceptable. It just makes you seriously think about conspiracy theory in trying to force you to buy a new phone. I'm not playing that game. I think I'll root this thing now and go bare bones with what I need. I will probably never buy another Samsung product after this nonsense.
This is the worst thing to happen to my phone since I bought it. Aps don't work and can't see what I am typing when tryind to edit my website.
Jendace43130, 21 Jun 2018Also hate the new update. I just figured out how to give specific tones to people who text me ... moreI totally agree. I used the different message tones and now I can't. Not happy about this last update
Maricor, 20 Jun 2018So I installed the latest update on my S7 last night and noticed that the battery is getting d... moreyup same problems. Samsung has been great with my last and my S7. But this update messed up many many things.... Is this the latest ploy to get everyone to break out big bucks for new phones? Or was this a legitimate screwup and they are going to fix it soon?
I have sworn by Samsung phones up to this latest update. The phone is completely screwed up, performance is beyond bad. Google maps took over a minute to load, if another app is open, the pop up screen to answer calls sometimes will not come up. Putting in an address into google maps can take up to 30 seconds for the letters to type. From my standpoint a complete disaster. I even let the phone tell me how it should preform and it is STILL not working properly. Other than hard reset of the phone and pray that everything is backed up somewhere, anyone have any suggestions as Samsung nor Verizon are going to lift a finger to fix this.
I also used to love my phone and wanted everyone I knew to get a samsung. Now I HATE it and can't wait for my contract to be over. Samsung better do another update soon to fix this mess.
I can't hear WhatsApp voice message by putting near my ear . The sound still come out from the bottom speaker.. I cant receive call from other . No notifications of missed call or others . Camera feature also change , can't take picture by tap on
Heart beat scan near the back camera . Is not a friendly update ..
since i installed the update my s7 randomly resets itself and apps start up randomly
If you have Verizon, your phone should already have the Verizon's text Message+ app installed, in addition to Samsungs text message app. It is simple and easy to switch over to Verizon's message app; just launch it and all your texts are there. When viewing a text of one of your contacts that you want to customize, click on the 3 dots at the top and choose customize. From there you can pick a custom ringtone for that contact's text message. You can also choose a background. Overall it works just as good, if not better, than Samsung's text app. If you don't see the Verizon app on your phone, you can download from play store.
Update changed all settings and my phone is definately not user friendly. Close to getting rid of this samsung 7.
Bluetooth has changed, my keyboard is different, everything stinks. Y'all quit messing with s#!* that isn't broken. If it isn't broken don't try to fix it. Stop adjusting things people get comfortable with, it's not cool. Totally disrupts their respective efficiency.
s7edge has been top of line until now. after update, many settings have changed, running Google Maps & phone calls alone is now VERY GLITCHY/SLOW, my phone literally rings 3-4 times before i can actually see who is calling/answer it loads so slow. This reminds me of what AOL felt like to today's cable internet.
