Kevin M, 05 Apr 2017I get updates, yes, very important to keep virus repairs and security issues and fixes. What I... moreI just did the update too. Wish I had not. This is horrible. Color change, fonts. Why???? 😡
I absolutely hate the latest update on my Samsung Galaxy S7. This latest update has changed just about everything on my phone.
Here is a list of everything that I have noticed so far that has changed:My word dictionary for text messaging isn't the same, a lot of words don't seem to come up. Also the self correct has changed. Even when I choose a word from my dictionary, the wrong word appears
after the right word and then I have to delete the wrong word. The key on the keyboard to change from letters to symbols is different. The bubble colors of my text message conversations have changed.
When I access any of my contacts the color has changed a well as the view of all the numbers for that contact. Now only 1 number shows up very tiny and no other information on that contact shows up on the screen you have to press the contact circle on the left side of the screen to pull up the contact information.
My calendar color has changed and how I put things into my calendar has greatly changed. It is much more difficult to put something in my calendar now.
How the pull down settings menu is accessed has changed along with the pull down settings menu. Now the location of everything is different.
My alarm clock is different now. Before if I had set alarms in my phone I could just touch them on the left side to turn on or off. Now you have to go to the right side of the alarm and slide a button on or off and the color screen of the alarm has changed as well.
The screen brightness slide from the pull down menu is now in a different location on my screen.
My icons that show up in the top left corner of my screen have changed in both look and size. Now they are very tiny.
A lot of my icon looks have changed in both color and size.
My camera has changed. The gallery icon has changed.
Basically everything that I really loved about my Samsung Galaxy S7 has changed. Most importantly the ease of using it and how user friendly it was.I was extremely excited about getting this phone. I previously had a Samsung Galaxy S5 and I couldn't wait to get the Samsung Galaxy S7. Now with this most recent update I hate this phone. I can't wait until my next upgrade.I will get an IPhone for sure.
Samsung needs to address all these issues that occurred with the latest update. There are a lot of very unhappy Samsung customers right now. I am one of them. I would tell everyone who had a Samsung Galaxy S7 do not do the upgrade.
I wish there was a way to undo the upgrade I did.
Since this last update, my Google maps don't work, the phone freezes and the text message predicted texting sucks
This latest update is horrible. Hard to see, hard to use common apps like text and phone. Loss of favorites to text easier. Biggest problem is when you have events in your calendar they disappear after little time. This is unacceptable. Is anyone having the problem with the calendar and any suggestions. I am thinking of switching to iPhone. When emailing and texting not recognizing words. Camera sucks. Used to be great.
Original TJ, 04 Apr 2017I hate the new galaxy s7 update. Had zero issues with it before. Everything is completly diffe... moreCompletely agree. Who has time for this? I can't freaking see anything anymore, and every setting I took so much time to tweak is just GONE. I did not agree to this, what a waste of time, and loss of trust to this company. Never again.
Lastest software done on s7 phone very slow keeps switching notification sounds off apps are un responsive fonts are tiny hate it . Biggest bug bare is screen freezing. Comeon samsung sort it out
Since i updated i get these screens that say i have viruses and if i dont down load some app, i will be locked out. I close all and it goes away but i have never gotten that message before. Also, i cant adjust the brightness from the pull down and i am not a fan of the new layout. Someone suggested making layout changes optional, great idea! Love Samsung s7 almost as much as the 5. Thanks for adressing issues.
Loved my Samsung7 Edge unroll the April System update. Even functions and screen displays inside the apps have changed. Not sure this update was tested enough during the development/design phase.😕
WORST UPDATE EVER! I know most of us don't like change but this is beyond that. This update changes so many things and has made some things much more difficult (ie text messages, predictive text, talk text, settings, etc etc etc). I have always said I would never get an iPhone but thus update al9ng with the battery issues are pushing me right in the arms of the i world. HORRIBLE SAMSUNG
I do not like this new update at all. I can't use my game apps anymore, the icons are too small to see on the main screen. How can i revert back to the previous OS?
Terrible! Terrible! Terrible! Just updated my Samsung Galaxy S7! The interface and display lost all of its color and pizazz!!! The words and icons are tiny! It is totally unuser friendly now! My phone looks like a Samsung S1!
WORD OF ADVICE! DO NOT UPDATE THE SAMSUNG S7!!!
I just downloaded the update but taking over and hour to finish installing.. Did anyone else have this problem?
This new update is horrible it erased all of my learned words and when it doesent know a word a type it won't let me save it so every time I use it it auto correct to the wrong word, last update you could add your own words and it would remember this update won't let me use words I would like to and I can't change anything in the dictionary area all the words it knows is the only thing I can use and if I manually make it put the word in it won't do the same next hundred times I use the word or phrase, I hate the updates like this and I wish they would just release the software when they know it's not fuc*ed up and just wait a day to release it so they don't screw you over backwards cause they suck to begin with and can't get a single software they do correct the first time, hire new tech ppl and get this s*it right!
KBC, 04 Apr 2017Found this on the Samsung community board. Go to this link and post all concerns. They have ... moreBet you posted that with an updated S7. Coulda made the link a click here, not likely possible with an S7.
Unfortunately this update has ruined the phone for me. I can't look at it without feeling as though I'm looking at a cheaper quality screen/phone. My significant other has been trying to get me to switch to an iPhone for awhile now. This will be the direction I will go with a future purchase for sure. I've had enough of dealing with Samsung updates. I wish I could uninstall this ugly mess.
I get updates, yes, very important to keep virus repairs and security issues and fixes. What I don't get is why you need to alter the icon sizes, positions, clarity, colors and other phone features. This latest update has made my phone aggravating to use. I had just bought the phone in Jan. 2017 and loved it. Now everyday it just gets more frustrating. Why I ask, can't you upgrade and just offer a YES or NO to any phone icon changes. This way, fixes, anti-virus and security issues needed can be accepted but nothing else changed.
I have both S7, and the Edge. Glad I waited on doing both. the download time has gotten rediculous, and it constantly has to refresh! Worst update ever!
Since the update my Wifi turns off and on by itself while sitting in one spot in my house, approx. every 30-60 seconds the entire time I am using phone. I have checked my apps. and my Wifi settings. Nothing. It has to be the update. It started right after my phone was turned back on after update.
