Seems like everyone is all pissed about the update but I can't tell what exactly has changed could someone tell me what the update consisted of please?
So disappointed with the latest update. Samsung: do something or I'm going to Sony.
The predictive text is now rubbish. I've lost all my word history and it doesn't learn anything new.
The pull down menu is very user unfriendly.
Trying to find a contact in messages is useless now cos it brings up every man, his dog and their email address, phone number, home number, mailing address, Facebook contact, Instagram tag. What's the point!? I just want to send a text! Just show their mobile number!
Front screen notifications are tiny and hard to read.
I agree 1000% this new upgrade totaly sucks, no more aplit screen capability to use 2 aps at once. View for every thing blows. Also cant even do much with message bubbles like changing colors. I hate everything about it and it just installed like 10 hours ago.
AnonD-659909, 07 Apr 2017Absolutely can not believe the software update to my Edge 7! Can not stand it. Don't want to o... moreI totally agree! All the fonts in almost all apps changes to thin, small lines. Very hard to read. Tried changing in settings, but not very effective. Hate this upgrade and don't want to install a bunch of 3rd party apps to fix. All they do is eat up the battery.
As soon as my update was completed, I hated the way it looked, I lost all my settings and features I had applied, the font is skinny and ugly, all emails and messages are mixed up, there's no more favourites easy to find, I just hate the way it's all set up, for years I have been sticking to Samsung against everyone in family insisting I change to iPhone too but I refused, now I will gladly change as the update sucks, please change it back, it's clearly upsetting everyone so change it back to the way it was.
Absolutely hate this latest update. Its like learning to use an entirely new phone again. Enough to switch phones. Which is a shame as have always loved my Samsungs.
This update sucks. Must have been done by a drunken idiot. Unbelievable what Samsung has done. I am really thinking about an iphone....which I ised to hate
Yep...awful update. Font stinks, colors are hard to see, additional steps to send a text. Seems antiquated and a definite step back!
Phone updated last night and I wake up to everything different and I can't stand it. The emoji I used the most, the cheeky one, is gone. Camera is harder to snap and share. Makes no sense.
I just hate the latest update. I am fine with the looks but the main problem for me is the spell check and auto complete. In the past, it used to access my contact library and check whenever I start typing an email and give me suggestions. Now it's not the only thing that stopped. The spell check work horribly. Even my name it's not remembering. Sometime, normal words like quick is changed to sonethi g totally different and stupud. I went to Samsung help center and they had no answer. They said we are sorry that this is not available anymore but we can't down grade unfortunately. They admit that the old software was better but there us nothing they can do. This is reminding me bit of Nokia at the start of it's fall. They launched the update for they communicator that is full of Buggs and from that time it was downhill.
Also hate the s7 update
No longer user friendly
All the setting buttons are useless and changing anything is hard as S@#& bc I can't find what I'm looking for in the settings
Used to be so easy. Hate the white screen and and sending messages takes an extra step
How are any of these features
'New' or improved??? Ridiculous

Dont hate on a update just because you havent explored it enough to know whats going on!
Absolutely can not believe the software update to my Edge 7! Can not stand it. Don't want to own this phone any longer. Hard to read and see front screen. Print small. Icons small and they do not change with my update to font to go larger. Rolling views of alerts and notices and messages are so tiny and in a horrible to read tiny font. The persons who designed this need to be put on cleanup duty around the office!
Man!this update totally sucks!!! I really don't get it. Everything is just so complicated...its no more easy to use. Even the brightness drop down that used to be a slide away is now meddled in between a series of icons. The interface, themes,wallpapers are just weird. Pls how do i undo this update.

This last update has made my screen blink with every open app. Like it is closing and re-opening. It is driving me crazy. I used to love this phone.....
Nora, 05 Apr 2017I absolutely hate the latest update on my Samsung Galaxy S7. This latest update has changed j... moreI traded in my Sony Xperia Z3 for a Samsung Galaxy S7 last Nov + while I had buyers remorse + felt disappointed within a week, I decided to give it a real chance. The latest update pretty much secured my next upgrade back to the Sony family and affirms no regrets for recommending other top smartphones over Samsung no matter what the reviews say. Fool me once...
While I'm in agreement with everyone's comments, I wanted to add:
1. Auto correct issues were at least laughable at times before the update, admittedly for my Sony phones as well, but now it's as if context is no longer relevent besides having lost all my word history with no dictionary learning in sight since the update. Suggested words makes me think my phone's using alien grammar. Very time consuming fixing all my texts. I used to think Swype allowed me to draft documents faster than an iPad screen, but auto-correct issues requires me to edit edit edit! Backwards move indeed. Smartphone turned dumb phone.
2. Calling someone now requires an extra screen touch or 2 before the call is made. What a time waste! Further to the calling process, was there a point to automatically selecting a contact's number + asking if it should be defaulted? Sounds good in theory, but in practice, I often call all of a contact's numbers in series to track the person down, at which point the default becomes a hindrance + a delay to getting to the call. I suggest one touch to select contact to bring up their details + 2nd touch to pick a number + call is made automatically...like before. 2 steps, done.
3. Email addresses no longer come up automatically as I type in the first few letters. WT* is with having to go to my contact list via the 3 vertical dots @ the top of the email window + sift through the ever growing contact list. Who's contact list is shrinking? Talk about loss of productivity.
My phone has become so painful. While i have to admit that Sony has also done some bad updates in the past that required relearning one's phone, this Samsung update takes the cake. I can see why people want to throw their phone into the nether nether...!
