I am having the same issues. Since the update, my keyboard super sucks and I lost most of my pictures!
A barrister has now confirmed that by introducing the Nougat update they have rendered your phone no longer "fit for purpose" and you can legally end your contract without penalty.
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2017Ditto to all bad reviews. Hate this new update and nothing you can do about it. Agreed. My phone is slower, options are taken away, glitches like my background of my overall message screen is white instead of black, in text screen top icons are hardly seen and I don't see a battery life benefit.
Mine actually feels smoother, my suggestion to people with problems is to clear your cache in recovery
I'm not a fan of this update. Ever since it updated, my keypad is awful. It changes words to different words I never even typed. The calibration for the keyboard is crappy. I have to hold down longer on the letter for the symbol to come up. The prediction and autocorrect doesn't help anymore like it use to either. Definitely just a pain now to even use this phone. Would give it a thumbs down, for sure.
I downloaded samsung update to my s7 and now when i receive a text message the light in the upper left of phone does not blink to let me know. It is a green light.

redtoy66, 28 Apr 2017the last update sux big! Swype is awful, contacts all messed up and my FB app is stuck in the ... moreI am having the same problems. I have never had an update that messed up my phone as bad as this one has!!! Version 8.1.1 needs to be removed all together!
Absolutely NOT happy with the update 8.1.1 for my galaxy s7. I keep losing my contacts. Sometimes they are in the restore contact app and sometimes they are just gone. This is just the beginning of all the issues I have with this new update. Extremely unhappy!!!!! Has anyone else experienced this problem?
I have tried this update twice and in both times my phone stopped working completely after starting the update I am really pissed off I only used this phone for three months and had problems twice that shouldn't happen with a good phone and good company
Ditto to all bad reviews. Hate this new update and nothing you can do about it.
the last update sux big! Swype is awful, contacts all messed up and my FB app is stuck in the LOGGING OFF mode.
horseshit update, first off it installed on its own, custom words are gone, swipe/keyboard is the biggest piece of shit I have ever used. new color contrast/font sucks, been three days and I am ready to throw my 7 Edge in trash. Might be time to go with a new iphone and make use of the bells and whistles in my GM vehicle. Android Auto is also a big pile.
I am so irritated with this new update. I had my settings so it would not update if I was not connected to Wi-Fi. It updated anyway while I was in the middle of work and could not use my phone forget 45 minutes to an hour will it updated. Now, when I'm trying to send text messages keypad is totally off and needs to be recalibrated, the symbols don't work as well when you hold down the keys, there's no apps on the screen that I cannot disable ever , Nevada voice text doesn't work as accurately anymore, it's better than using the QWERTY keypad on those damn device. I'm just about ready to break it in half and go over to an iPhone despite the fact I have preferred Samsung to them for years. All this happened just a month after I got this phone and I am pissed
Battery draining superfast
Cant change USB from charge to Transfer files even if I change Developer Settings there are now two places to change these settings and it still doesnÂ’t work
On the Dual Sim Model I found by accident, my texts had been turned off so I turned it on and now I canÂ’t receive calls on one sim and donÂ’t know how to turn it back onÂ….ie. My phone goes directly to voicemail. My Service Provider hasnÂ’t activated the diversion and my phone displays Diversions Disabled.
Standard response from SIVA: Don't blame the developers its working fine with millions of devices. Only some devices getting problems means its not a problem with the company , problem is only with your device.
Surely there are enough devices not working that suggests it is the software?
My S7 closes apps I am using
Not all My Contacts can be seen except in certain areas.
Photos now turns to stories and I donÂ’t even want itÂ….suggests it instead.
