I downloaded this update sometime in late February. I honestly tried to like it, and sympathize with Samsung. I tried. I regret it, and wish I could have just disabled the update notification. As the other people said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" I loved my phone prior to the update, and it was working perfectly, with a decent battery life. I am not even gonna sugarcoat; I HATE this new update with a passion. My phone (S7 Edge) has ads now, which is very annoying. On top of that, it will not stay charged. At. All. I have to charge it about 2 times in a span of a school day, with airplane mode, and battery saver on. It even completely died after school in a span of 5 hours when I was walking home alone (which is VERY unacceptable and dangerous). I used to be able to go a whole school day + walking without my phone dying, and without me having to charge/be on airplane mode at all. Boy, were those the days... The WiFi went downhill as well. It goes out at random times, and YouTube refuses to work sometimes because of it. Previous to this update, my WiFi worked fine on my phone, and currently runs well in my house.
Not only that, but it was really annoying how they switched the settings icons around and making it two pages. It is sometimes eye-bleeding because of the white background of it, as well. The update also made it so that all of my music had the same cover. Not ONLY all that, but I noticed my phone has really been lagging more often, and freezing/closing apps. It also gets very hot after a while. I have also noticed that now I need to press two buttons just to get from a contact to the texting page, thus wasting time when it was fine the way it was with 1 button.
Samsung very much needs to get rid of this downgrade, and of course the person who had the bright idea for this insane "up"date. They attempted to make our phones more complex, but failed to realize that N O O N E wanted that, and the version before was much more efficient. Sometimes, the simpler things run better. It's not about how elaborate the phone is, it's about how user friendly it is. Clearly, they could not give or take two craps about what we think, and Samsung just did what they found most convenient. Well, they just wasted their time, because this update is so tedious to navigate through, so complicated, so inconvenient, that my phone is ruined due to it. Thanks a lot, Samsung :(...
This update has cost me more than I could ever justify staying with Samsung, horrible, all was fine, unreplaceable, un fixable
This system update sucks and makes me hate my phone. It looks so generic w small wording.
This update causes my phone to randomly reboot throughout the day. Plus snail notifications when you hit clear all. Come back shortly after. What the hell?
I can't tell you how much I HATE THIS RECENT UPDATE!! It's a total Downgrade is what it is! Everything in my settings looks generic....It had messed everything up! And I just got this phone....I loved it. . Now I HATE IT! Make it go away!!
Eli, 02 Apr 2017The upgrade took away my ability to take videos that aren't live. I hate that. I don't want to... moreSamsung and all other mobile and games consoles do this to mess your phone up so you end up getting the new one!!! I turned off my updates as my phone works perfect and have no need to change with a stupid update that messes your phone etc up!!! Please remember this and turn auto update off ☺
My keyboard dictionary is nothing like it was. It is replacing words that make no sense, that I had right before. It forgot all my learned words. It won't separate 2 words. It's crazy now.
I hate this update! Everything is messed up. I really want you to change it back.
The upgrade took away my ability to take videos that aren't live. I hate that. I don't want to post every video I take.
On top of that the colors are hurting my eyes. Bright green at the top and red right next to each other? Are we in Eternal Christmas? This is the worst!!!!

Ed 45, 01 Apr 2017This update is absolutely the worst. I would be typing this from my phone if it wasnt now so s... moreThis is the worst update ever. There's nothing good about it.
Samsung, please provide us a way to switch back to the previous version.
This is the dumbest update ever.
Who ever tested and approved this should be fired. Good features/text/visuals in messaging, phone call, email, settings were take away and replaced by poor designed features functions and fonts/colours.
Please tell us how to uninstall.
I installed the new update and could hear my phone taking photos as well on its
GMBW, 01 Apr 2017This update sucks. Does everyone else also see the text auto correct options in black? I can ... moreI see that too. And the multiple other failures in almost every aspect of what used to be semi-alright.
