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!
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.
Bill, 12 Mar 2017I totally agree the last update screwed up all four of my family's phones contacts are all scr... moreJust updated my s7 and started having network issues.. intermittent drops on 4g.. couldn't fix the issue so just did a factory reset to get Network back..
