Latest update makes things more difficult. When you go to text and click on the smaller envelope on the lower side (for quick texts), you now have to find the person you are looking for, rather than just start typing their name, and most annoyingly they put the COMPOSE button on the top right... Most inconvenient spot and now instead of one easy step, it's three. Why change something that worked fine before? Just awful.
Also when you swipe down from your top screen for quick options, the brightness is an extra step (AGAIN) and at the very bottom. You can't move it higher. Super inconvenient.
Lastly, now when you click on your photos you have this bright white background. Horrible.
I regret updating.
Since the last update my s7 keeps turning off!!!! Can't bring up keyboard, what's going on?
Update made my phone feel slower kookie things happen. Spelling weird. Phone goes to screens. Have to tap icons numerous times. Hate update. Loved how my s7 edge plus worked before. Now it's dorky. Feel phone should be replaced by samsung. If you all put these problems on yelp it will hurt sales then we may see repair. Bad update. Should have been done as a trial. Bad experiment at my expense.
between typing auto correct, and delayed reactions to the phone. and the sending of pictures and videos does not work. i have to re start my phone to try and send one. i want the s8 but i dont think i can keep dealing with these updates.... s7
since the update, the predicative spelling is awful!!! It changes words that have been typed correctly...ie: gave, changed to have... It's awful.. A friend of mine is having the the same issue.. I hate this new update.. Please fix now!
AnonD-668559, 11 May 2017SERIOUSLY????? The phone was working GREAT before this! I have the Gear S2 Smartwatch and now... moreI too have had problems right from the time i got it last October with the battery life disappearing so fast through the day. Iphone much better with battery life. Have complained from to Kogan about it but they do nothing. Took it to Samsung, still nothing. Went back to Samsung because I really liked them in the past. Can't trust any of the phones anymore.
Samsung you bloody Nobs you have ruined my bloody phone i cannot type text anymore....takes me 10 times to write a message and then go back and correct it !!!!
FIX IT NOW
The update is terrible, the fonts are almost unreadable. Everything is so light I cannot see what is on the screen. Much more difficult to get around than before.
Don't you dare force us to make the updates. Stupid. Made my phone bad. I always delay updates because of how inconvenient you pop up and now my phone is incredibly glitchy
Must admit after new update battery life of my s7 edge has got so worse. Before update it was really good. With so many people having same problem, something is wrong samsung. Very disappointed.
I would like to complain about the new update and how much worst my phone is now then 3 days ago before i did it but i seems everyone is already taking care of that for me
I'm officially done with Samsung. I have turned in 2 S7 phones, i have been a dedicated customer but the S7 software upgrade has destroyed both my S7 phones. Went from the best phone I've ever used to the worst on so many levels I cannot list all the numerous bugs and forget speed, the phone hangs all the time... Bye bye Samsung
Anonymous, 07 May 2017I have had it with this update. Takes 10 times as long to type out a text so it's correct and ... moreI really want to throw my phone ina fire! And BTW, I have had to make 5 or 6 corrections to this text because the auto correct and keyboard now totally suck!
I hate this update! Grrr!!!!! I have always used swype and love it. This overrides everything and auto-corrects with random words. This is the longest I have kept a phone because I loved it, now I hate it thanks to your stupid update!
I have no idea what this has done to my phone but it is garbage. I use Voice Text for Google subjects to look them up and I have to completely back out of the app and go back in to get back to the keyboard after I voice text and my battery is completely useless as of now not this many people can be wrong!!!
