I don't like the look either. It's terrible and childish! Why change something that works fine, just because you are releasing a new phone with a new Andoid OS and then want to change everything... It's stupid, otterly stupid!
Its trying to push the update to my s8... i hate the look of the camera app as it looks like the same shoddy apple design, along with other things.
This post solidify that, thanks.
I just heard some news, that Samsung will be issuing an update towards the end of the month. The person at tmobile did not have any detailed information as to how in-depth it might be or what it would fix. They just said that it appears that Samsung might have heard our cries. We will see just how much, or at all.
Despite all the hate, i wanted to try the new version. Because I'm like this, discovering new things is part of my design. And i did. And i was surprised because it's the best thing that I ever done! The battery os fine, the new ui is so ***** cool and there are lot of awesome new features. And most of the things you mentioned are easily avoidable: like the keyboard, bixby, nav bar... i find the new features smart and intuitive. The big text in the menus is made so you can use your phone with one hand, if you scroll down it will be like before. That's not a problem in my perspective. To be honest, I think that you went hard on this one, making the update to be underrated.
Certainly agree with the comments. Why does Contacts start with almost half the screen wasted telling me my name I already know that.
Why also have high resolution screens and use icons that look like a child drew them.
Not being able to quickly switch the camera to video is also another backward step
