I'm so annoyed with this new update. I could work with most of it but WHYYYYYYY would you change the block feature??? I loved having the option to turn on/off the notification for a number. And the option to choose whether I wanted to block the call or the text message. I may not want them to call me but I still want to text. Now, when you put someone on block it deletes all messages and this person cannot call or text period. Somebody please pinch the person who decided to change that feature and add a whole of bunch of confusing, useless, unnecessary bull crap! Mad about that ish...
I really dislike this latest update. The most annoying change relates to Favourites for those you regularly call. Up until this update it was really useful to just tap the favourite number and the phone would just dial the number straight away. The grid layout was also ideal for easy navigation. Now - you have to scroll through the list and then select the action to take.
The overall feel of the display of the phone is cold and definately not user friendly.
Come on Samsung - stop messing about and roll back these useless changes.
Stupid update... So far no benifit!!!! Keeps disconnecting to internet!!!! Also i hate the new texting feature!!! When i get a text i have to scroll down to find out who texted me instead of it being right on top plus whoever i text i have to find them and then after i text them it doesn't go to the top then i keep accidentally texting the wrong person!!!!
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2017Just ran the new update and my notifications are tiny! Is there any way to change this as the ... morescreen brightness slider can be added to the main slide bar through the little arrow on the RIGHT side and turn on to appear on main slide bar
So far I do not like the update. I can't change my font or my background to my messages and when someone sends a long text, I have to hit "view all" and it takes me to a different screen to be able to view the whole message when I was already looking at the text through the message app, then I couldn't reply to it from there, I had to go back to be able to reply to the message. I don't mind the way the icons look, but texting functionality and the option to personalize needs to go back for sure! If in had to rate this update, it would be 1.5-2 starts, not impressed at all.
Just come off phone to Samsung who are obviously taking a lot of flack over latest update since almost immediately I was told there was nothing to be done it is what it is!
The phone was fantastic now, since latest update, I really dislike it. Updates are supposed to patch security issues and improve the phone. This latest update has changed the looks (fruit salad), the way you access things (you have to relearn how to use the phone), and has actually removed or turned off functions that for me were useful. I use a voice recorder so I can playback conversations and make notes. The app came from Samsung Apps, it cost money but worked well. Now it doesn't work because someone turned off voice record so now I only hear me but not the other party - useless!
I was told that I had agreed a disclaimer be download of update. Of course or else the phone would have gone mental telling me there was a new update until I did but more importantly I wanted to keep the phone secure. I never expected everything be changed as well and never knowingly consented to those changes. How dare Samsung do this, whoever signed off thinking they have improved the customer experience is an idiot. By all means keep product secure and improve operating efficiencies but don't mess with setup without option to keep previous look. Final outcome from customer service call is that Samsung don't care. Such poor service and apathy along with great phone now ruined means I won't risk Samsung phone again. Shame.
Not having any serious issues with the new update so far but my phone is more laggy and when I change my theme it stays for maybe a few minutes then goes back to the same boring blue theme that came with it! I've tried using different themes and apps nothing works! I am pretty partial to the galaxy note myself but due to the recalls for exploding phones I settled with the edge because I like Samsung products not so happy with the edge and I miss the note please get your crap together Samsung and fix the issues
screen brightness slider can be added to the main slide bar through the little arrow on the RIGHT side and turn on to appear on main slide bar
Who on earth does Samsung consult on updates. Useful functionality lost lost easy access to favourite contacts and screen brightness. Technically a better interface with fewer conflicts but they've forgotten about the user...
i recently tested an s7 with android 7 installed on it from the factory. it is working fine, no battery problems no lag... android 7 looks different but it is all about ones taste. i m fine with it. looks clean. icons in the slide bar are a little small but manageable. with a black theme it looks really nice and saves battery. screen brightness can be added to the main slide bar through the little arrow on the left side. great idea. blue filter, a very good idea. maybe you have to do a factory reset before or/and after an major update... if anything bad comes i will let you know
Just ran the new update and my notifications are tiny! Is there any way to change this as the rest of my display is tge sane! Akso, cab you chabfe tge settings so that the screen brightness comes up as a priority setting like it used to? Difficult when you go outside and want to change it but can't see the button and needa drop down!
What a loads of rubbish. Just when I was used to my phone now everything is terrible. Facebook turns off in less than five seconds, the white background for photo editing is annoying, Not Happy Jan!
This update is horrible. I can't get the keyboard screen to come up when texting. I'm switching to Iphone
1, Battery drains
2, Mobile lags
3, USING VR HEADSET FOR 15 MIN ITSELF- MAKES MOB HEAT EXTREMY AND SWITCHED OFF
4, miss texting
5, Newtwork connection is poor
6, Mussic volume is down.
7, call couldn't be placed at single click
8, voice command became poor
I've looked almost every place I could think of and I can live with the changes done, but what kind of bugs me is that I used to have a dark background behind my texts before the update, now it looks like triangle confetti. I would like to change that part please, how do I go about doing that?
I agree completely. To be honest, I think the visuals and format were better on the s4 than the original s7 format, but now I hate this updated format. Why is the brightness button the last thing in the shortcuts. They took off my picture frame widget. Why? My dog just past away and he was in that picture. I set up my whole screen a certain way and now I have an empty spot, where he should be. Ugh!!!!!
All my messages keep popping up despite what screen I'm on. whatsapp fb Messages. I need this stopped
Bloody network issues continuously after the update usual samsung crap iphone here we come
Janesays, 13 Mar 2017OMG, this is the WORST update. All of a sudden, swiping words doesn't work - it puts in all t... moreI'm with Sprint and having the same issues. I've always used swipe and the words it's coming up with are redicilous! I get 'yup' instead of 'to' every time... I HATE everything about this new upgrade! The colors are going to ruin my eyes! Almost all of my text coming in and going out are duplicated. Sometimes hours later. I used to love this phone... not any more!
