I did the S7 update yesterday and am not impressed with layout or format changes.
My folders used to show everything together. Now within my folders, created to keep like apps in one place, on one page, I am having to scroll across multiple pages, inside folders. It really has defeated the purpose of me having folders. It doesn't make sense to me.
As far as my text messages go, the changes are making it harder to get an SMS set up and sent. You now find your contact, then you have to press the compose button to actually write up the message. Just extra work and screens where previously it was done on one screen in one go. It does not help keep life simple.
My text messages are the diary and the history of my life, especially vital to me at the moment. Since the update, I can no longer scroll through whole conversations and read each text straight through. Messages are broken up and there's a read more button if you want to look at the whole message.
I obviously don't use my phone to its full capacity, but these basic changes have taken away a lot of the pleasure I had with my new phone. Can Samsung put it back please?
Read comments too late. Update is horrible phone freezes, battery won't stay charged. Is there a way to un update because now the phone I was perfectly happy with is crap.
My memory card slot quit working after the update. Tried a different card and still says no card. How do I fix it?
Wish i had read the comments on here before continuing with the update. It has rendered the phone unusable. The font contrast is so light i cant read phone numbers or contact names and the change in user features is like having to learn to use the phone all over again. Any way to undo these shocking changes and rewind the upgrade ?:-(
Worst update ever. I can't change icon sizes on easy mode anymore, the new font is awful, fast charge stopped working, extremely difficult to navigate the settings since nothing's were it used to be.. :( I really wish I hadn't bought this piece of crap.
my battery will only last 3 hours since the update. it drains even when im not using it please help

just a joke this update. Will it make my phone burning as well? Thinking to move back to Iphone

Allicat, 13 Mar 2017I hate this update has changed everything and I dont like the colour I use a third party text... moreMe too. I even started to think it was a virus and not a real udate its so awful.Also my google maps was screwed uo orobably because of it.
I hate this update has changed everything and I dont like the colour I use a third party texting program and it is not letting me know when a text comes in. Have missed texts and phone calls when ph is sitting right beside me. Can someone tell me how to change it back as there is nothing likeable about this update.
OMG, this is the WORST update. All of a sudden, swiping words doesn't work - it puts in all the wrong word - even when typing them out it puts the wrong letters. I didn't know if it was just AT&Ts update - or if the updates for the Galaxy 7 are the same for all carriers.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I did the update on Friday. This update is NOT ready to be put out to the public AT ALL. There are so many problems with it. My edge assigned people are there but, my color codes on the edge feature does NOT work anymore, when I get a missed call or text It does not show the assigned colors or people on the edge at all. When I get an email and want to reply to it, there is NO reply button so now I am NOT able to reply to any emails at all. This update has made my battery run out a lot faster and, this update has also made my phone severely lag, freeze up, and run a lot slower . Also, the words are so small. I NEVER had any problems with any other update but this is by far, the absolute worst update ever. I took it to the Best buy Samsung representative and they kept trying to fix it but, since this update is so new, the software refresh is not even available yet. They were baffled at all the issues my phone was having because of this update. I strongly strongly encourage you to wait wait wait to do this update. There are so many problems with it. It should NEVER have been released w/o doing a lot better job first. I am so upset because now I have to wait and suffer with a non-fully working phone until they get their act together and send out patches for their mistakes. Thinking about going to an iPhone.
I'm more or less happy with the overall update. Only issue is that I've got 2 extra moveable buttons which appear on every screen I'm in no matter what app I'm on. Anyone know how to get rid of them? One is a internet search the other one brings up short cuts to stuff. Helppppppppppppppp
I hate this new update, it is horrible!!!!!! I loved my galaxy s7 edge before the update but now I hate it. Colors are ugly, when texting in more than one language I have to keep switching when before it would automatically correct in both languages, contacts are messed up all my setting are gone... please get rid of this garbage update!!!
This latest update is terrible... I can no longer view YouTube videos from my Facebook messenger. My phone freezes.. I have to reset the phone each time. The battery life is bad. The amount of space this used up on my phone just about uses up all remaining memory.
All my apps returned back in the wrong folders. The overall operation of my s7 is very slow and laggy. Think they need to release a fix update or simply offer us a way to return it back to before.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2017The new update is terrible.This upgrade screwed up such a great phone. Why mess with all the u... moreI totally agree the last update screwed up all four of my family's phones contacts are all scrambled my Google maps kept freezing up while driving ,had to reinstall mine and my daughter's phone keeps restarting by itself every 6-8 hours and now everything is shifted to the left side so when you hold the phone in your right hand you can't reach half your function keys using your right hand thumb so now my phone is a two handed operation . must have been a left-handed person who came up with this new system. way to go. I love how some individual has decided what I need and how I need my phone setup, hey Samsung people buy a phone and set up a certain way for a reason they don't need you change everything up on them all the time . now I got to figure a way to get it back the way it was. Thanks a lot , NOT .
Since the update my wifi will be connected...then it will disconnect right in the middle of something...then reconnect...it does this about once a minute...very frustrating
