This last update has made my screen blink with every open app. Like it is closing and re-opening. It is driving me crazy. I used to love this phone.....
Nora, 05 Apr 2017I absolutely hate the latest update on my Samsung Galaxy S7. This latest update has changed j... moreI traded in my Sony Xperia Z3 for a Samsung Galaxy S7 last Nov + while I had buyers remorse + felt disappointed within a week, I decided to give it a real chance. The latest update pretty much secured my next upgrade back to the Sony family and affirms no regrets for recommending other top smartphones over Samsung no matter what the reviews say. Fool me once...
While I'm in agreement with everyone's comments, I wanted to add:
1. Auto correct issues were at least laughable at times before the update, admittedly for my Sony phones as well, but now it's as if context is no longer relevent besides having lost all my word history with no dictionary learning in sight since the update. Suggested words makes me think my phone's using alien grammar. Very time consuming fixing all my texts. I used to think Swype allowed me to draft documents faster than an iPad screen, but auto-correct issues requires me to edit edit edit! Backwards move indeed. Smartphone turned dumb phone.
2. Calling someone now requires an extra screen touch or 2 before the call is made. What a time waste! Further to the calling process, was there a point to automatically selecting a contact's number + asking if it should be defaulted? Sounds good in theory, but in practice, I often call all of a contact's numbers in series to track the person down, at which point the default becomes a hindrance + a delay to getting to the call. I suggest one touch to select contact to bring up their details + 2nd touch to pick a number + call is made automatically...like before. 2 steps, done.
3. Email addresses no longer come up automatically as I type in the first few letters. WT* is with having to go to my contact list via the 3 vertical dots @ the top of the email window + sift through the ever growing contact list. Who's contact list is shrinking? Talk about loss of productivity.
My phone has become so painful. While i have to admit that Sony has also done some bad updates in the past that required relearning one's phone, this Samsung update takes the cake. I can see why people want to throw their phone into the nether nether...!
Just done the new update for Samsung Galaxy S7 edge after installing the update I noticed there is no notification tone anymore of messages can someone please tell me how to fix that all my notifications are on please Samsung fix this problem and Wi-Fi is laggingÂ…
Hate the new update. Fonts, colors, keyboard all different. Calling more difficult, no more favorites in phonebook, A really stupid update
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017Yeah my splanner won't even open.. Did anyone contact Samsung to see what the f they can do to... moreTry typing s7 into the "contact us" section of the samsung website, s7 doesn't exist according to the site which means you can't complain to samsung except by phone. Maybe back up everything then factory reset, assuming the phone has such a thing.
The newest S7 update sucks period!.... you know what if it's not broke why try to fix it they're a bunch of retards
I've never written a comment on Anything Online, either....ever.
This update is horrible, I just switched back to a Samsung from Apple an I'm regretting my decision. This needs to be to be corrected!
Is there any way to change this back to the old system????
The new Samsung s7 update is appalling. The keyboard is now much harder to work, my phone has moved into slow motion and the same emails keep coming through. Apart from that the new layout looks very outdated. Why do the updates always make the phone worse.
What happened to Samsung. Most of my company users cannot even receive emails anymore. Emails are not synching for hours and hours. Sometimes you have to be on a certain wifi for it to synch, other times even that wifi wont work. This is crazy. I used to love Samsung, I am a bit disappointed to see that there is no solution for it. I think whoever the developer is forgot to ask Q/A team to take a look at his creation. It f***ing sucks.
I hate the update on my phone. The font is so small and fine that it's hard to read. It looks lounge line drawings from must years ago. How can i go back to the old system?
After this update, my S7 Edge will work well for approximately an hour. When service gets spotty, the entire phone freezes to the point that I can't even unlock it. I can't access apps because the screen times out before I can even see the pattern to unlock it. Not sure what the point of the phone is now. Basically bricked.
Ever since the latest update my message notifications are not showing on my lock screen, all I get is an led notification. Help.
This absolutely horrible, I feel I have gone back in time. Samsung fix this now!
I have NEVER posted a comment before about my phone but this latest update is terrible!! The font on my phone is so fine that I cannot read it with really looking hard at it! The time which show on the face of the phone is also too small and I hate the way the new icon look and the fact that the one for a "briefing" shows up all the time now! Furthermore not only is the dropdown harder to pull down but the light adjustment which I used very often does not readily show up..........PLEASE change it back to the way it used to be!
Frustrated, 06 Apr 2017I've just updated the S7 and I hate it! The fonts are so old fashioned, its looks like I'm usi... moreMan i hate this update, i dont know why but my phone eat the battery so fast, even with the power saving active and heyy is no my phone battery because this start to happend after the last update. Samsung come on fix this problem, i will not move to S8 just because the S7 is like this. Other thing, without the power saving, at full cpu speed the phone sometimes stop to respond, no matter if you are on facebook or ebay app is start to operate poor. Not happy with this and this is my favorite phone.

Too bad if i want to give someone a number. The whole thing is crap. I actually hate my phone now. Samsung pull your head in. Who gave you that type of permission to totally wreck my phone. My fonts, wallpapers etc have all changed. Absolute rubbish. Jerks. And they arent exactly throw away at the price they are.
I've just updated the S7 and I hate it! The fonts are so old fashioned, its looks like I'm using something from 20 years ago. My theme has been altered and lots of other things too. Surely Samsung can see they've got backward with this latest update???? Please fix asap Samsung!!! My modern S7 is now not!
Well. Just completed the latest update. So far seems to have addressed my issues so far. Will play with phone til tomorrow. Listen to Spotify and surf at same time to check for previous freeze issue. Stay tuned for update. To disable auto update; go to settings/ system updates/ slide download auto updates off. Hope that helps you Bmm. Smile
Not happy with this new update. Everythinh is different. So, i will now change to iphone because this whole new program is wonky, ineffiecient, and unwanted. Cannot stand the"new" look and feel. Change for change only sucks! Fire the designer let them go work for Denny's!
