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!
This update is an absolute disgrace.
I've been having network problems since the update but that's not what i'm angriest about. What makes me furious about this update is the visuals, they are the most disgusting thing I've ever seen in a phone, the notifications and bigger than they need to be and they are ugly beyond belief, when i swipe down to see wifi, airplane mode ect. it makes me want to cry, the white background with icons that has become an eyesore make me absolutely disgusted. Give us an option to toggle back the visuals of the previous version. I legitimately want to switch back to Apple purely because of these ugly visuals and massive blocky notifications.
It use to recognize both english and spanish and give me a visible suggested word but now I have to manually switch to another language and the suggestions are not visible anymore. Sometimes I have convos in both languages with the same person and have to keep switching languages to make sure my spelling was correct. How do I get that back?
Hate this new update. I can't change the font size on a text to save me putting my glasses on. Hate the font change and colors. Is there anyway to uninstall the update. Please help.

This new update is so garbage I don't even want this phone anymore that's how garbage it is I can't believe they did this. features and phone do not work anymore like I said straight garbage waste of money waste of a phone waste of Time.

Worst Android Update Ever.........The phone's graphics started lagging when opening and closing of a picture or video..
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.
