S7 showing another update ready to install this morning. Anyone know what is in this package???
I updated my phone yesterday and had no problems all evening. This morning it was fine as well until about 20mins ago when i unlocked my phone to read a message and the phone froze. I cannot turn it back on and it only shows a black screen and the Galaxy S7 Edge sign. Any ideas on how to turn it back on. It was vibrating and then flashing the sign off and back on as if it was restarting but not the sign it perm on. Please help
I'm really not happy as since I have done last update that was approved by Samsung I have received at least w0 messages a day advising me to update items such as security/texts/and a whole lot more. I don't expect to have an up to date phone and have to go through updating items to outsourcing agencies😡

HATE updates. If I wanted an IPhone I would have bought one. They need to stop trying to become one.
With the last updated my phone started flickering. So when this update came along, I didn't do it. I'm happy I didn't do it after reading this. I'm going to be getting another phone. With every update the device gets worst
I have similar issues. Before the update my phone was not right- going to another time zone and battery life waaaay down to less than 4 hours before dead. After the update I have had three texts sent from my phone disappear from my phone and the ether. Four of us in my family have been faithful to Samsung for ten years.
Some salt for another wound, I'm using my wife's S7 edge after we upgraded her to the S9 edge because my original S7 edge got cracked by tsa but didn't affect operation (February 2017). Last fall I start getting the dry out charging port error and lost the ability to charge from plugins only able to use wireless charging. I send it to Samsung for the "free" repair and they refused the repair unless I pay the $280 for them to replace the screen.
I am a most unhappy long-time customer considering going to the "dark-side".
Have two Samsung`s S7 and they are both compromised by this new OREO upgrade. Would have hoped Samsung would have issued a new update to get this resolved. It`s time they take noticed. IPhone will be my next phone..
Irresponsible on behalf of Samsung..
Start sending this website showing the issues Samsung is ignoring to all the tech media outlets and get this issue in the news!

After the August 2018 update, phone becomes hot very fast, battery drain after few hours and screen takes couple of tries before coming on and flickers like crazy... definitely something wrong with the update since i had no issues previously!!
If Scamsung doesn't address and fix these issues, especially the battery drain my family has since the update, we will be consulting an attorney. This was our 1st Scamsung phone and it will absolutely be our LAST. With so many people having complaints, this must be exposed.
okay so I was forced to update to Syatem 23 it would not allow me to opt out of this update and it automatically ran the update * most of my apps have stopped working,,,texts are not going through

This firmware was created to cause the phone to go crazy. So people would give up and buy something new. This should not be the case please help me sue them.

I have recorded a phone call fro the samsung service centre and they basically fell for it and said that the firmware caused the motherboard to crash. I am looking for 10 people to sue the company who ever wants to jump on board please let me know. The software is version 8.0.0 this caused my phone to do the same. I have proof and recordings from people in the authorized service centre to screw the company big time. I just need people with the same issue to prove my case is solid. I way will pay all the lawyer expenses too. This is a class A lawsuit.
