Anyone else HATE their Note9?! Maybe it's just Samsung.

Apprentice

The amount of features and aoptions Samsung has taken away from this thing has me wanting to throw this POS at the cement as hard as I possibility can. It's bad when I'd rather use my busted up S8 than the NOTE9 I got to replace it. The new messaging application without the personalzation options for the background in an effort to push your stupid themes.. WEAK. Removing all the shooting modes from the camera ESPECIALLY the 360 shooting mode!! What was the purpose?? If I'm spending this type of money on a device I want to have control over it. So fed up. Get you act together Samsung!!! And Bixby is a joke she doesn't deserve her own button especially if I can't change what that button does on MY OWN DEVICE!!!

Some people do not like Samsung One Ui  / Pie for one reason or another @AreYouSerious  which I fully understand.

 

Have you tried an alternative messaging app such as Textra.

 

I also do not use Bixby.

 

The Bixby key can now be remapped in the phones settings. i.e. no outside apps etc are now needed.

 

For example mine will launch my Samsung Internet App. 

 

Settings > Advanced Features > Use Single Press.

I can understand your unimpressed with the shooting modes _ many are.

 

I would suggest to send feedback via the Samsung Members  / Samsung + App.

You're very welcome @AreYouSerious 

 

Personally I use the Beta Samsung Keyboard.

 

Maybe give that a try !

 

Take care.

They removed a ton of Camera modes, both Video and still photos, they removed the customization of the text message background, and they removed the ability to assign custom text message tones to contacts and NOT the message thread (which does NOT work for group messages)

Don't get me wrong.  I love my Note 9.  I love One UI and some of the features.  But I HATE that they have taken away features for no known reason and they refuse to acknowledge it, or explain the reasoning for their removal.  

And no, another texting program will NOT work since the change Samsung did was to the contacts app which now trickles down to EVERY other texting program.  

So.. to the Samsung Moderators, I ask one question.... 

Why?
