New update formatting takes getting used to. I can no longer add edge color to certain contact. It only displays green now. Edge feeds freeze up on you constantly half my Edge feeds don't work anymore. My phone constantly resets itself since the new update. I purchase this s7edge phone 3 weeks ago and now the update is causing all these issues. Some of the options are Blended in the background white so they blend in and you can't see them. The person who developed this new update should be fired and not allowed to work for Samsung ever again. Sitting here reading all these reviews about how all these Samsung Galaxy customers are upset with the new format makes me frustrated and I can understand why they're frustrated this whole format it's just useless. I got my software update at 4 o'clock this morning and noticed all kinds of problems with my phone throughout the day.
I have a question since I bought the phone that I thought I had and this update converted it to a different phone can I turn my phone back in and not pay my monthly bill because I still owe $500 does anybody know if I can cancel this?

I hate this update. My apps force close all the time and the lag is just obnoxious. Typing or sending a pic through a text takes forever. The new settings layout is horrible. THIS UPDATE SUCKS
My texts are showing up to other users of s7 duplicately and hide versa
Got the new update for S7. It's terrible. Location/GPS is super jumpy now. Some of my apps can't evem confirm where I am at any more. I reinstalled apps, cleared location history, cache, reset to default. Nothing seemed to help. When I answer calls, the window disappears and it looks like i missed the call. Settings menus used to be organized well and now you can't find anything in settings. It's a treasure hint. The new message pop ups have tiny options below them for baby fingers. I'm not using a palm pilot and don't care to use a stylus. Noticed ultra power savings is gone and now you have super complicated custom power saving mode. Don't know how I can save the most battery. The minutes saved inside a dumb circle doesn't help. I have to stretch the top menu out more just to see the flashlight and other options. Side scrolling worked and was efficient. Why take that away. I can't tweak my screen brightness while switching to auto brightness. I have to go into a sub menu for that. My phone is also having phone reception issues duting phone calls and system performance dropped as well.This is a huge step back for Samsung. Super disappointing! I might as well go buy the Samsung Galaxy S1.
My Amazon kindle books are not working. I am ynable to open any of the downloaded books since the update!!
Does anyone know how to reset phone back to previous OS? My S7 can now no longer send any text messages with this stupid new update. It is horrible and my boss keeps texting me and I cant respond! Please help....
I hate the update. My battery drains seriously fast. I won't touch my phone for an hour and it's down 20%?! I've lost all kinds of options for my camera, and that is the only reason o got this phone. I'M A HUGE PICTURE TAKER OF MY KIDS!! And A lot of the layout is similar to my husband's iPhone. If I wanted that I would have purchased an iphone. Any way I can take the update off???
Smk, 27 Feb 2017They took away the damn flashlightIt's there. But when you swipe down to access your options you have to swipe left and you will find it.
Conrad, 27 Feb 2017Where did my phone favorites go? They're still starred on the contacts page, but I no longer ... moreMe too. Check your contacts, not there if you search but are there if you dial a number ... any solution?
Reanie, 27 Feb 2017This is by far the WORST update I have ever experienced. I can't stand my messages letting me... moreAgree;the new lay out seem cheap and bland, hard to find where everything is now. I always concidered Samsung 1 of the top companies in technology and latly that perception has precipitated, exploding batteries and now careless considerations to details. Disapointing.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2017This update SUCKS. I loved this phone but this update just ruined it. Phone is super slow now.... moreSame! I loved that for a quick easy glance at who text when the phone is on silent. Plus you can't even read anything w/ the white or yellow highlighted words on white! That makes no sense! I'm so beyond annoyed.
