This update sucks - makes everything ugly with little to no color - unlinked my contacts from FB, so lost all the pics to easily identify who is calling or texting, changed texting layout, font and icon colors making it very hard to read. Don't understand why a "supposed" security update changes all of my display settings. Did you think about people who don't see well? Please fix this horrible update!!!
All, please voice your frustration to Samsung. They'll be forced to do a rollback or improve things. At least we'll make our phones better until we're due for an upgrade.
This update has been very detrimental to the function of my phone. It is now freezing up or moving so slow multiple times a day I'm having to clear my cache and reboot. I'm having to charge my battery several times a day and for the first time in my life, I'm considering an iPhone. I'm going to catch a lot of grief if I go that route b/c I said I'd NEVER switch from a Galaxy b/c I've been so happy with it. My whole family has iPhones and I've been the last hold out. They've got to correct this update ASAP!!!
Most of my apps keep crashing now including clock. I can't even set a damn alarm! I don't understand this update and why it's so buggy. I waited a little while to update, but got sick of my phone reminding me so I caved, worst decision, now I don't know how to go back and my phone is barely capable of running anything now.... Ahhh!
This update made my phone terrible to use. First of all the text on my calculator are light white... I can't use my calculator if I can't see the numbers. SECONDLY I hate the key board update. Third of all where did every thing go, the new settings list is a pain in the butt. It takes 5 clicks to turn my data on or off. Last of all why male an update that makes the phone harder to use.. can we just go back to the last update and get a button to never update again.
Hate this new update. Nothing looks the same. No color. Operations have changed. Where's my flashlight button at the top menu. Is there anyway to roll this back??? This sucks
YabaDabaDo, 08 Apr 2017I too allowed my Samsung S7 Edge to update. Never again! Best phone I ever owned and had it ... moreThis update SUCKS and they better undo this crap. There has to be something bigger behind doing this. What company would really put out this mess? Do they really want their customers changing phone companies? I tell you this mess is to benefit them not us. Why so many updates? Are they obtaining more of our personal information?
God I hate this new update too ! I can't read anything it's dull it's a complete backward step battery doesnt last a day thank heavens I'm due an upgrade soon will be going back to Apple!!
It's not just me then. This latest Update has made my much enjoyed S7 horrible. Loved this phone but really dislike a lot about it since this newest update.
What the hell is going on with this update. Screwed my phone up whenit was working perfectly. Thanks Samsung, you just made my decision much easier to go to iphone. So stupid!
I AGREE with every single COMPLAINT listed here. I ABSOLUTELY HATE EVERYTHING THEY CHANGED.
* Messages? Dont get me started with this one! Cant change text bubble colors like begore. Cant have my favorite people listed access across the top gor quick tecting (loved the ease of it before)
* I like color and EVERYTHING now is bland, grey on white, too tiny, and hard to see or read things.
* I have noticed so many changes and I bitched all day about them..... then I decided to search the internet to see if other people feel the same way!.......BOY AM I HAPPY OTHER PEOPLE FEEL THE SAME WAY! ...... and I found so many things the update changed that I don't like and there's no way to list them all.... But man these people hit it right on the head
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2017Has anyone else found their battery life is disappearing now at a rapid rate since the update.... moreYes! SO fast! Now having to charge phone multiple times a day.
Also finding texting not as responsive and auto correct is buggy
Has anyone else found their battery life is disappearing now at a rapid rate since the update. Absolutely hate the changes, first time ever I've disliked my Galaxy. 😢
Acethecat1911, 07 Apr 2017Absolutely can not believe the software update to my Edge 7! Can not stand it. Don't want to o... moreAgree, I hate it. Now google assistant pops up (I don't use it) and even though I turned it off, it still comes up all the time and asks me if I want to use it. No! I noticed when I was looking at my volume for media th he other day, it keeps turned it down buy itself and wouldn't let me correct it. Everything is totally different and id's not user friendly anymore. I hate it.
silly s7 edge update is worst.
feel sorry about leaving iPhone. want to sell this crazy phone and go back to apple.
we have to touch 1001 time for a simple operation even to del e sms
My videos no longer play on Instagram since the update. Any clue how to fix that? I've tried uninstalling and redownloading it. Only works for the first few minutes and stops again.
EasyMoney, 08 Apr 2017Seems like everyone is all pissed about the update but I can't tell what exactly has changed c... moreThe way folders work has changed. They now take up the whole screen and have a add apps button I keep hitting when I try to close the folder. Long text messages now have to be tapped on to read the whole thing. The drop down bar it different. The setting menu has changed. There is a constant notification about back ground apps being shut off to save power.
This new up date sucks. What a joke. Good job with pudding me off samsung. IPhone are looking better every day.

So I'm not the only one, thought I was crazy. Worst update ever! Phone keeps restarting for no reason, apps stop, phone locks up... Gets hot in my pocket so I need to turn off data, WiFi and GPS when not actually in my hand. Was a great phone, was upgrading to S8... Apple here I come
