I updated my Galaxy S7 9-13-2018. Software update from Android, Big mistake.My battery drains in 35 minutes just laying on a counter. I lose 8% battery when unplugged and on the phone for 10 minutes. I select the FB App and instead I get either Amazon or Camera. Slowness is so bad, I select an App, nothing happens so I select again, and again. Then it goes crazy for multiple selections of the same App. This is completely ridiculous. Was this update not beta tested prior to unleashing total missery on your customers? What is the fix? This cannot go on like this.

They want you to update so you get frustrated with the phone and end up getting rid of it. My battery already stinks, and I am on vacation. No way do I want ads popping up, battery drain and a hot phone. I haven't heard very many positive responses. What is the goal of the fix Samsung? Hello Samsung are you there?
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2018I updated my phone yesterday and had no problems all evening. This morning it was fine as well... moreHold the volume up button and the power button at the same time. It should start up in the safe mode.
Mandi, 11 Sep 2018Just downloaded the update (9/11/18) and now all I get are ads popping up. I cannot figure out... moreSame here. It's irritating and preventing me from streaming video because of constant popups -_-
Ever since the security update, when I press the home button to turn on my phone the screen just flashes and doesnt come on. I then have to hit the power button twice for the phone to come on.
This is the only problem I've noticed so far.
Not happy with the update I did today. My phone is now sluggish, the battery is draining SO fast (it went from 48% to 10% in less than an hour) and my phone is super hot to the touch. I even took it out of the case because I was worried it would overheat. I have an S7.
Nelly, 11 Sep 2018Is update 24 the fix we have been waiting for?All good with my update
Just downloaded the update (9/11/18) and now all I get are ads popping up. I cannot figure out how to stop them or where they are coming from. They pop up every few minutes.

S7 showing another update ready to install this morning. Anyone know what is in this package???
I updated my phone yesterday and had no problems all evening. This morning it was fine as well until about 20mins ago when i unlocked my phone to read a message and the phone froze. I cannot turn it back on and it only shows a black screen and the Galaxy S7 Edge sign. Any ideas on how to turn it back on. It was vibrating and then flashing the sign off and back on as if it was restarting but not the sign it perm on. Please help
I'm really not happy as since I have done last update that was approved by Samsung I have received at least w0 messages a day advising me to update items such as security/texts/and a whole lot more. I don't expect to have an up to date phone and have to go through updating items to outsourcing agencies😡

HATE updates. If I wanted an IPhone I would have bought one. They need to stop trying to become one.
With the last updated my phone started flickering. So when this update came along, I didn't do it. I'm happy I didn't do it after reading this. I'm going to be getting another phone. With every update the device gets worst
