Oh my heck, this update is ridiculous!
1) my text messages alert me in the mini menu of notifications, but doesn't have a number by the icon showing me I have any.
2) my icons keep disappearing on my home screen. I will have folders on my home screen with certain things for quick access, and then hours later, they're gone! Put them in there again... and poof! Gone!
3) That mini menu *on the drop down) is pathetic. Too small and I liked it the way it was.
4) it messed up my predictive text and erased words I had saved.
There's so many other little things that drive me crazy about it like the camera, how my apps will suddenly freeze or flicker, then suddenly boot me out. K, better fix it!
I hate the new update. The screen freezes and touching anything makes nothing happen. I want the old back. What went wrong. I loved my Samsung S7. Not anymore.
Samsung, if I wanted a new phone, I would have bought one. This recent update is unacceptable. I purchased this phone a few months ago and was just getting used to it. Now it's as if I have a completely different phone. I understand wanting to fix the bugs, but why on earth would you change EVERYTHING???? My biggest peeve is the notification icons are so freaking small, and it seems there's no way to adjust them. Camera is different so I have to re-learn that. This was unnecessary. If there's a way to uninstall this update, I will. Ugh!!!
Hate, hate, hate the latest system update in March, 2017. WTH? This update completely changed the user interface and functionality of my phone. Why? Is there a way to go back to the previous version?
It was great before this pathetic update. What were you thinking?
The new update makes my phone lag and system crashing here and there. It is worst then the previous version!! This is terrible! Either revert back to previous version or solve this samsung!
I hate the new galaxy s7 update. Had zero issues with it before. Everything is completly different and now so small and hard to see. I hate my camera being changed and now I have to learn everything all over as if I got a new phone :(
I have Samsung galaxy S7 and after last software update would be my last Samsung phone.
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2017This is causing me a huge amount of unnecessary stress. I can't figure out my phone anymore; h... moreI HATE the update as well. I badly wanted to like this phone but it was a HUGE step down from the Note 3. After my Note 3 broke I got an iPhone but really missed my Android. I purchased the s7 with high expectations that were nowhere near met. Pixelated videos, having to download images before sending, the always-hot battery, weak multitasking features, NO STYLUS (still mourning the loss of my Note 3). I tried to find one thing about the phone that was decent at best. I came to enjoy the fact that I could select multiple photos for my lock screen wallpaper but that feature is gone after the update. Also, I can no longer split screen while texting. I'm ready to go back to my iPhone period extremely disappointed!
Really horrible interface. I have to actually press an embedded arrow to read long texts, which takes me to a different screen. Then you read the long text and have to navigate back to messages to finish reading the next text from the SAME person. Everyone would rather just scroll and not have to look for hidden content! The reverse camera button is now in upper left corner and cannot be reached with a simple click of the thumb. I have to actually change the device to my left hand, so I can reach up to the top left, just to reverse camera. This is how we live life now, Samsung. Don't kill business by making it harder to navigate the camera. It also doesn't take the same quality of pics. Who are you hiring for these upgrades? Surely you can afford the best, but it's like the designers are way out of touch. And the generic same size font on everything clouds my mind. The other display was easy and simple BC it suggested an order with color and size, now it's cluttered BC nothing stands out. This is so bad I will either find a way to revert to previous software or I will change phones. Cannot be productive like I need to be and I've intentionally tried to give it time to grow on me.
What a crappy update. Now my phone is all screwed up and I have to relearn everything. What the hell are you people doing at Samsung?
This latest update is horrible
I lost all notification sound, can't watch any videos- Facebook, Instagram et.etc. Wi-Fi is horrible and my battery is almost dead 4 hours after coming off the charger.
I own a small business and need my phone for it. Thanks to this latest update I've lost a few potential new customers.
Fix this now Samsung or I'm switching brands
The update has removed the multi window feature has been removed/disabled. Unexceptionable.
About the look of the new update. Its very ugly and hard on the eyes. Its appears to be an attempt by Samsung to look closer to a cheap iPhone knock off. the problem is, I dont want a iPhone or a iPhone cheap copy.
Ive been on the phone with Samsung and they claim the problem is the UPDATE. They also claim the UPDATE is made by the carrier. this is obviously not true, carriers have the ability to adjust the software for carrier specific requirements. carrier are not individually
This is causing me a huge amount of unnecessary stress. I can't figure out my phone anymore; half of the features I'm used to are gone now and all my settings and personalization are different and irreversible, I don't even recognize the new vibrate pattern notifications because those all changed on me too. I missed my iPhone before but this really put me over the fence. I absolutely HATE what the new update did to my phone that I was already struggling to like. Why did this update change so much when previous updates didn't do any "updating" like this? This update is total BS.
i have the samsung edge 7. i really liked all the settings now i hate it.
why did you ruin a great phone. i have a vision disability. no settings for this no bold in the e mail or larger font when i highlight to 24 font. i cant find my colors to change the bubbles for texting in yellow so i can see it. you need to fix this or go back to last update.
if it is not broke don't fix it!!
