Pie update looks like iPhone

First Poster

Just updated my Galaxy s9 to Pie and am terribly disappointed. The entire "new look" to it screams Apple and iPhone! The elementary grade colors throughout and icons on menus changing to colored circles, and the layout of menus, is like having an iPhone again. I moved to Samsung to have a cleaner more sophisticated system, now it's like all the other phones out there. Sad.

I have to completely agree with this, however, i used the word Kiddie instead of Elementary.  This update is terrible. It doesnt make sense. The BIGGEST crime with this update is the SCREENSHOTS! It no longer vibrates AND you can NO LONGER crop whenever you take one like before. They need to stop doing these updates without some sort of input from the customers.  

 

We chose Samsung to get away from the cookie cutter, iPhone life. Stop trying to become your competition. Become a better Samsung.

 

Please stop trying to make it obvious that you stole a few iPhone employees and get back on track.

Someone at Samsung needs to be fired over this and have their balls raked over hot coals.

We've volunteered those iPhone employees we've allegedly stolen.

Something like a beta testing programme perhaps?

 

On a slightly more serious note, definitely send any feedback you guys have on the update via the Samsung Members app (Samsung+ for you folks in North America).

I have the crop option on my Note 9 on pressing the icon you highlighted.

I'm using a Samsung supplied Note 9 in the UK.

That's fair enough @Hayroeh 

 

Then consider using a 3rd party launcher such as Nova Prime and the Goodlock app along with a Samsung Theme and or icon theme pack.

 

The good thing about android and Samsung phones is the amount of customisation a person can have on them.
