I am hating this upgrade so much I just want to throw my phone against the wall, it just reminds me why I hate iPhones so much. This feels clunky and unituitive, I cannot even get my pro camera to go to Vivid and I manually changed the settings on pro and cannot get them to move back because hitting "reset" does f-all. I have an old S6 that I am going to go back to and sell off my S8 because I am not tech savvy enought to @rse around with Odin.
A decline in sales and enough complaints is the only way they will ever change. I would suggest to anyone that is unhappy w/this update to email Samsung support. I did and actually got a response. It was typical 'we appreciate you as a customer..' jargon, but the part that annoyed me was that they suggested 'people are hesitant any time there's change'. This is not true, at least in my case. What i have a problem with is stripping so many awesome features from a device that are a huge factor in why people buy them in the first place. They told me the new design was based on feedback. I am highly skeptical of this, unless thousands of people actually wrote to them to remove all of the missing features mentioned in this forum. It's disappointing. I never thought I'd move away from Samsung phones and have always raved about them and tried to show as many people as i could what they were missing with iPhones or stock Android. When the day comes that they force One UI on my beautiful Note 9 with Samsung Experience, i will start shopping for another brand. Hopefully they restore a lot of the stuff that was removed in the meantime, that's the only thing that will keep me as a customer.
AGREED!!! RUINED MY $1200 NOTE 9..
ITS NOT WORTH THE MONEY NOW..
And what's so funny is Samsung obviously knows how we feel.. I have read 0 ZERO Positive posts.. turn back the update!!!!!
Not a ***** peep to be heard from Samsung or Google (heard that the Google design teams had a hand in this abortion)
I don't imagine they even care about the 'customer experience", they are just pushing ahead with their plans. I'm thinking that there should be a global boycott of all Samsung; washers, driers, stoves, phones, etc. maybe that would get them to listen.
