This new update is horrible it erased all of my learned words and when it doesent know a word a type it won't let me save it so every time I use it it auto correct to the wrong word, last update you could add your own words and it would remember this update won't let me use words I would like to and I can't change anything in the dictionary area all the words it knows is the only thing I can use and if I manually make it put the word in it won't do the same next hundred times I use the word or phrase, I hate the updates like this and I wish they would just release the software when they know it's not fuc*ed up and just wait a day to release it so they don't screw you over backwards cause they suck to begin with and can't get a single software they do correct the first time, hire new tech ppl and get this s*it right!
KBC, 04 Apr 2017Found this on the Samsung community board. Go to this link and post all concerns. They have ... moreBet you posted that with an updated S7. Coulda made the link a click here, not likely possible with an S7.
Unfortunately this update has ruined the phone for me. I can't look at it without feeling as though I'm looking at a cheaper quality screen/phone. My significant other has been trying to get me to switch to an iPhone for awhile now. This will be the direction I will go with a future purchase for sure. I've had enough of dealing with Samsung updates. I wish I could uninstall this ugly mess.
I get updates, yes, very important to keep virus repairs and security issues and fixes. What I don't get is why you need to alter the icon sizes, positions, clarity, colors and other phone features. This latest update has made my phone aggravating to use. I had just bought the phone in Jan. 2017 and loved it. Now everyday it just gets more frustrating. Why I ask, can't you upgrade and just offer a YES or NO to any phone icon changes. This way, fixes, anti-virus and security issues needed can be accepted but nothing else changed.
I have both S7, and the Edge. Glad I waited on doing both. the download time has gotten rediculous, and it constantly has to refresh! Worst update ever!
Since the update my Wifi turns off and on by itself while sitting in one spot in my house, approx. every 30-60 seconds the entire time I am using phone. I have checked my apps. and my Wifi settings. Nothing. It has to be the update. It started right after my phone was turned back on after update.
I hate this new update! Everything changed. If I change the theme I can't see the calculator numbers, the text messages bubbles have changed to an ugly color abs the white background is horrible!! I called Verizon to help and all they did was reset my phone and I lost my keyboard I was using, lost my WiFi's, Bluetooth's and I had to reset them up all over again! They didn't even know how to answer and fix my problems!! This is horrible update hate hate it!!!!
My phone's battery seems to suck ass now. My phone reboots by itself multiple times per day. I get notifications telling me certain apps are slowing down my phone. The phone also completely locks up randomly now. Galaxy S7. Did they even test this update?
Found this on the Samsung community board. Go to this link and post all concerns. They have been addressing and posting information updates.
We've noticed several random concerns with the new update. We want to be sure that all these get fixed up as soon as possible! To help our developers and bug fixers find all of these, I ask that you post this again on this thread here: https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Product-Updates/Announcement-Nougat-7-0-Update-Problems/m-p/7249...
Really hate the new update now can't secure my phone with pin number as it won't expect it really loved my samsung but now hate it it's changed all my features want it bk to the old way not happy
Me, 03 Apr 2017 I downloaded this update sometime in late February. I honestly tried to like it, and symp... moreTo add to this, it is really irritating having to enter my password again when all I want to do is turn off my WiFi, data, turn on airplane mode, etc. I also don't have the text notification sound anymore. :(
I am solely a business user and as a previous legacy Blackberry user for 10 + years - I was quite surprised and happy with the S7 as a replacement phone - and then came the software update a week ago - making previously simple tasks like texting more difficult ?? Icon locations will randomly change and the new camera / picture gallery software is awful to use ... sigh....
Annie , 02 Apr 2017My keyboard dictionary is nothing like it was. It is replacing words that make no sense, that... moreOMG! I know -- my keyboard sucks now. None of my words come up and the words that do make no sense at all. I hate this update!
The new update has changed so many things on my phone. None of my designated ringtones will work so I have no idea who is calling me anymore. It only plays one ringtone. The phone is constantly vibrating and beeping and I have no idea how to turn those off. I turned off all notifications and it still does it. The keyboard is not working properly either. I hate the new update and is causing nothing but troubles. Does anyone know of a way to take the update off and go back to the way it was?
Updated s7, now phone dictation does not work. After hours on phone with tech support at samsung and google, still no fix. Terrible support and unreliable product. I am beyond disappointed with samsung products.
Out of all of the phones I've had and upgrades that occurred with each one, this one is the very worst. The font, the vibration alerts, camera, settings, brightness indicator, messaging, where the alerts show up versus where they were... all of these are different and I could add a lot more to the list. The new update took away a lot of the "user friendly" ways of using the phone and the new look that came with the update is extremely hard on the eyes, even after changing the font size. I used to tell friends and family how much I loved my phone and they considered getting the Galaxy s7/edge, but now I have encouraged them not to. Think of all the business lost; if each unhappy person tells friends and family, who then tell more people... huge loss.
Oh my heck, this update is ridiculous!
1) my text messages alert me in the mini menu of notifications, but doesn't have a number by the icon showing me I have any.
2) my icons keep disappearing on my home screen. I will have folders on my home screen with certain things for quick access, and then hours later, they're gone! Put them in there again... and poof! Gone!
3) That mini menu *on the drop down) is pathetic. Too small and I liked it the way it was.
4) it messed up my predictive text and erased words I had saved.
There's so many other little things that drive me crazy about it like the camera, how my apps will suddenly freeze or flicker, then suddenly boot me out. K, better fix it!
