This new update sucks!!!! Icons are all small, everything is drab and my flashlight is gone!! I hate this phone now! Is it a ploy for people to get rid of their galaxy phones because I absolutely will go to another phone! Who's bright idea was this update anyway???
Since the last update I have grey horizontal lines going across my screen, creating horrible pictures and making the phone hard to read. I have lost groups I had assigned for work in my contacts. Now I have to send individual text messages instead of quickly doing one group text. The calendar is hard to read and use. The one version before the update was much better. Everything was more user friendly and easy accessible including the flashlight app. This last update is horrible. I want to know how to uninstall the last version and go back to the version before. Unhappy Samsung user.
Ever since the update my display settings won't save. Every time I open up my phone I have to change the screen timeout setting away from 5 seconds. And this is after I had to factory reset the phone after the update the first time. This is crap.
I won`t be buying another Samsung phone why the hell did they do a update that doesn't work as good as the software they had................. its a step backwards.
I guess some 12 year old designed the new update.................I hate it
I updated my phone last night, and know every time I try to send a message it fails to send it, and takes for ever to try and send. I've waited 30 minutes for my text to send, and its still sending!
I want my old phone back please.
Does not support split screen either! AWFUL! after so many years with Android I'm going to IPhone!
This last update is horrible! My phone is slower, dies quicker and when I play Pandora my phone now freezes!Not to mention the whole layout changed and I LOVED my old layout! What in the world Samsung???? I used to sing your praises with my S7... Now I hate it!
OMG! New update is horrible! Keyboard sucks! Not able to switch to other languages. Calendar is awful. Not able to see clearly thw font is too light and makes it difficult to see at first glance unless you open the whole day. They have gone back to the days of the blackberry! The nice crisp visuals and icon and font sizes are gone! I have a BORING PHONE now. Please FIX ASAP! You even have to go back and forth the keyboard just to type an exclamation point. And the messages are so not visual friendly with very limited boring options. Not helpful for people with poor vision. DISGUSTED!
Samsung software update is a disaster!
Fingerprint access no longer works, phone contacts are totally screwed up, texting in multiple languages no longer works and home screen settings also screwed up.
HELP - does anyone know how to reinstall the previous software?
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2017I updated my samsung 3 days ago and since doing so, when attempting to charge my phone I get a... moreI'm having the same issue but now it wont charge at all it acts like it will then it fails over and over again
This update is hot garbage going on a month i haven't access to multiple apps including a game i constantly play. My phone wont get or send texts at times until i restart it. My phone is much slower and constantly glitching. i use my phone for work and am completely fed up. I emailed someone with galaxy and never got a reply big surprise. F this update, F this phone, F whatever morons created them. Peace I'm out.
I hate the new update, too white, icons too small, favorites not across top not easy as before. I can't say anything goid about it. Android getting to iphoneish. Getting less and less customizable. I'm hated it. Unless they change somethings I going to a different phone.
Also dont like the new update. My phone won't connect to any wifi now- it will search for 10 seconds and then tell me there are no available networks. If by some miracle the networks do show up i will try to put in my password and then it will time out. It's killing my data and my battery.
The software update feels like we went back in time 5 years. Did they get sued or something and had to downgrade the software. I hate this phone now.Thanks Samsung.
Since updating: my husband received an absolute random emergency message.
Have samsung galaxy s7 edge and since this latest update, I've lost a whole bunch of apps..one important one..the flashlight? My pictures and videos STILL send blurry/blocky. This being said, I'll be returning to an iPhone with my next upgrade. I've had nothing but let downs and even my replacement phone is giving the same issues and every update doesn't fix any of them. The few things I really liked are now greatly overshadowed by many cons. No where near worth the money I paid! I've talked to oodles of tech support people and STILL do at this point. My phone now locks me out completely. Which is amazingly annoying.
