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.
The update is awful. Did anyone get a response on how to fix this ASAP!! Battery running down, duplicate texting, keeps locking up....Please advise!
Latest update is crap. I hate it.... and has slowed my phone.
Sort it out Samsung. I used to recommend them as a great phone, don't be anymore.
Think I'm going to have to revert to iPhone
Zee1972, 09 Mar 2017The latest software update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is terrible. Does anyone know how to... moreUse smart switch on pc. Iti will revert your Galaxy to the factory system. You will go back to 6.0 though.
I updated my samsung 3 days ago and since doing so, when attempting to charge my phone I get a message saying that the phone has detected moisture in the usb port and therefore doesn't let me charge it. However once the phone completely runs out of battery it allows me to plug the charging wire in and charges without a problem! It started a factory reset by itself and states a message on the screen telling me that my warranty was hour and that I should not switch off the target.. .. I have no clue what that means.
How do I get rid of the horizontsl stripes on my screen? I hate them!
This update is truly dreadful. I use folders on my home screen to keep my apps organized that I use on a daily basis. I've never experienced any issues with it until this update I received on February 26th, 2017. Now whenever my phone dies or I restart it, it removes the apps I have organized in my folders on the home screen. Sometimes, if Samsung is really feeling ignorant they'll go ahead and remove the apps I have in the folders without my phone being powered off lol. I've been a long time Samsung user, but with everything going wrong with their software and devices I'm ready to make the switch to another company running Android.
The latest software update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is terrible. Does anyone know how to revert back to the previous version? My wife and I really want to change back. Why did Samsung do this? Supposed to move forward, not backwards!
The new update is dreadful. Why change something that works for something inferior. I have been delighted with my new Samsung Galaxy 7edge until now. Please can we return to the way it was.
