This update is absolutely the worst. I would be typing this from my phone if it wasnt now so screwed up it is unusable. They need to fix this ASAP. I thought having a Samsung phone that exploded was bad but this......Garbage. A great advertisement for switching to an iphone.
I totally agree with everyone else. This newest update SUCKS!!! I HATE all this bright white crap! Change it back! Stop changing the colors of things on my phone. We all pay a LOT for these phones and shouldn't have to put up with random (always terrible) changes!
Yeah, the new update absolutely sucks! Camera options are junk! I no longer get the LED light when I get a text even though the option is on. Settings menu sucks! Don't change shit when it works fine already!!! I wish I could reverse it, anyone know how? I reluctantly bought a Samsung and I wish I hadn't!.
This update is awful. Keyboard is very difficult to type and doesnt always show the actual word you type to pick it out of the list. It didnt save any of the common words or phrases I use quitw often like the old version did. Hate the picture frames around everything and it constantly fails at sendimg tezts or pics until you tirn phone off and on again
Oh my God this update is off on my phone does not work properly. Everything is so off on this and it's making me completely miserable. What screw up from Samsung.
I have loved my Samsung phones through the years....until now. This update that ran yesterday is HORRIBLE! Changed everything. I hate it! Makes me think about trading it for an IPhone and I'm not an Apple person. The fonts, backgrounds, contrast are hard to see. Can't figure how to get settings to the way they were before or close to it. I'm livid!!!!!!!
We have 5 cell phones in our family and this update causes additional clicks. To make a call, we need to search a favorite, then scroll down to the contact and then again review what option to click. Very frustrated with the new colors, much harder to read. The app icons are also not easy to read. Overall we need to revert back to the previous operating system or very soon will become an apple owner very soon.
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2017Does anyone know how to split screen with the new update? The split screen is the only reason ... moreI hate the new up date too. But i did see a hint about the spit screen stuff. If you go to where you can see which apps are open look at each app card and the cards with a double bar icon in the top right corner are able to be split by tapping them. I think. Hope that helps. But over all, so far i hate it tremendously.
Hate the new update. Just got this phone about 2 weeks before the update. I loved the phone until ..
Now I hate the phone app. No favorites, can't just call, you have to make more choices: call, message, details....
Message board has changed.
I want this update removed. Alternative is to sell this phone.
Does anyone know how to split screen with the new update? The split screen is the only reason I kept my galaxy instead of getting an Iphone. If there is no answers I am switching. This update may be the worst move I've seen Samsung make.
WHY did Samsung do this update?? It's terrible. The new icons are hard to see.
I hate this.
HuggyB, 31 Mar 2017I have said many swear words at my phone after the recent update. Dont you dare mess with my i... moreAgreed! My phone sucks now. The new keyboard they pushed out totally sucks. I'm completely disappointed with these stupid changes forced upon my phone!
Hate this latest Samsung S7 update!!! It's ridiculous that you can't read who and what text is regarding on front of phone anymore. Have always had problems with my S7. Traded it in for new one about 6 months ago and replacement phone is just as unreliable. My husband's S4 works better.
I have said many swear words at my phone after the recent update. Dont you dare mess with my icons, copy and paste is impossible, removed a lot of colored icons so finding things is hard. Stop thinking your idea of improvements are actually better. Let me choose my own configurations!
Absolutely hate the new update. I would have never allowed it if I had known what it would do. Text colour is pale and difficult to read and contacts as well. Has anyone seen any suggestions on how to change the text background colour and look of it.
Why does everyone always have to "try" and fix something that isn't broken! This new update sucks! I don't like the layout at all and my phone too, seems like it's getting a lot hotter than normal, and fast at that. Samsung, you all need to come up with something a little better! WTF?!
