This new update is awful. Not user friendly at all :( Every minute I'm using my phone it's proving difficulty. The contacts has changed and are not very user friendly. The income calls are no longer showing missed call. The phone won't switchoff when not in use. The screen stays on. It seems like i have to pay attention to my phone all the time. The dictionary and keyboards are rubbish too. Fix it samsung or you'll lose customers.
Hi! So my Galaxy s7 stopped working completely after I chose to update it. I let the update install overnight and when I woke up the next morning, my phone was shut off which was quite weird because it was fully charged the night before. When I put it on charge, the battery icon came but it did not indicate that my phone is charging. Then I let it charge for a while and removed it from the charger, and the battery icon stayed so I pressed the power and volume down button and when I turned it back on, the Samsung Galaxy S7 logo was showing and then the phone just wouldn't open! I tried EVERYTHING but the phone still dint open. I rebooted it a lot of times, tried taking it to safe mode (power, home and volume up button) but nithing worked. It was perfectly fine before the update. PLEASE PLEASE help me out and tell me a way to solve the issue without having to lose my memory :(
Absolutely awful. Icons different text won't adjust and stay adjusted. Print is too small for us older people. As someone said not easy to use now. Very disappointed.
Im so upset with the update on my S7 edge... I feel content with the way it was. Now alot of things changed. And its uncomfortable .... so upset. So upset.
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2017Thank God it's not just me. This update has ruined my phoneYep. Just pitiful. Predictive text now useless. Long list of now useless features. Epic fail.
I hate this update the phone I used to love i now hate. So many features gone or nor workimg. I can now get a budget no name phome with more working features. If Samsung dont gix this really soon. I will mot ever get another samsung product
Worst update ever! Apps keep shutting down, battery dies in hours, it takes forever to charge now and things arent user friendly anymore! How do we remove this? Are they going to fix the bugs? This is terrible!!
Is it just me or sis anyone else lose the emergency notifications (ie. severe weather and Amber alerts)? I can't even find the option anymore. My old note 3 that I keep around for games and such habe me the tornado warning in my area tonight, but my s7 dis not. Very frustrating! I hate this update!!
wtf have yous done , yous have totally ruined my phone with this new update...sort it out
A horrible update. I now can't seem to spell, spelling corrections that I had are now longer there. My icons for apps have changed. Every Samsung app seems to have changed their look. I really hate this new keyboard.
I used to love my Samsung 7. Now, it's unusable and I HATE it. Too many companies are forgetting that usability is key and customer satisfaction is critical. Lately companies are too worried about what they think internally versus how the actual customer uses their product. Hence this idiotic need to "fix" things that aren't broken. I'm very disappointed with Samsung and completely disenfranchised. As soon as I can, I will start using another manufacturer.
Dear Samsung... you totally missed the mark on this update! Thanks for taking away features on my phone that I used on a daily bases. I thought the purpose of updates were to improve or add features on your phone, not take them away??? I am NOT impressed!!
Anyone else having the problem with the update that the little message box that appears when a text is received will not show the whole text message, so you cannot reply on that screen, instead you now have to open text message app to read the rest of the text message to reply?
This is a ridiculous update. My signal gets list now and need to restart my phone..once I exit a place with Wi-Fi most of the times it doesn't switch to data and need to restart again..the option to switch to available is on..i hope they fix all the issues soon! I was so happy with my phone before the update
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2017The absolute worst update. Cant even text on my phone, it misspells EVERY WORD, phone battery ... moreI totally agree with you..
Ridiculous..hate the light icons ..half if my apps don't work now
This is horrendous... 2nd time with a Samsung phone that has done this! Samsung, fix the update problem! I cannot stand this phone anymore and don't have an upgrade for months! This is crap! And it completely useless phone!
Absolute garbage upgrade. The phone freezes after charging. The screen keeps reverting to google whilst doing other things for exampl it has dropped to google screen 10 times whilst writing this post.
My wifi REFUSES TO WORK. It keeps shutting off. And my calls arent going through. This update is GARBAGE.
VR5ITY, 24 Mar 2017My phone is dead now thanks to the "update". Pissed off as hell and shopping for an I phone to... moreMy phone is stuck on the tmobile bootloader the update may have bricked my phone so yea this update is shit
Update on my samsung S7 is crap. If it ain't broke Samsung, DON'T fix it! Now pressing an icon to open a program doesn't work properly. Have to hit the icon 5 -10 times to open any program. Camera is crap. After answering a phone call and put the phone to my ear, it hangs up! Or puts the caller on hold!. I demand the original upgrade to be available, And sack the idiots who designed, wrote and released this downgrade. My phone is almost useless now. Plus having all the other problems people are having below.
