I just received this update last night (gotta love Australian providers that take ages to push out updates)
What an absolute mess this one is. I thought updating to Pie would finally fix the wifi issues that have been around since Nougat on my S9. I'm heavily invested in everything technology based and I'm looking at some sort of screen for most of the day.
But, now we have UI/UX problems more than anything.
The only thing I like about this update is being able to see the charging status/estimated time on the Always on Display.
I've owned my S9 for ~9 months now, and it normally sees pretty heavy and consistent usage throughout the day... The very next day after the update, I haven't used my phone at all. That's how much I dislike this interface and UX now, it has literally become a paperweight with no desire to use it.
Now I'm going to go stuff around with Odin to revert back to Oreo and look at options to completely disable your update notifications.
Good job Samsung with your "One UI", you've proven to me that you're so out of touch by not listening to your userbase whilst chasing poor design choices made by Apple with their iPhone.
I've pushed things out of my backside that were better than this update.
I couldn't agree more!!!!! As per Samsung customer service they believe they are workinng on fixes but they have no information. I have no confidence whatsoever.
When they say they're working on fixes, will that include the icons and the other bits they've messed with the look and feel of that we simply don't like, or will they just focus on bug fixing?
