Please share with me what you did to get your S9 back to it's glory, or I will be chucking all 4 samsung phones in my household for something completely different. Thank you so much! Oh and congratulations!

I found your instructions on here. Thank you so much, I will be trying this as soon as my phone charges again. Ugh

How do I disable this update? I hate it. Feel like my phone aged 6 years. Shame on you Samsung.

This is not the only thread discussing how much we hate the new software update. There are another 125+ angry voices on the "I hate the new update for S9 - Android Pie" thread.

 

I hate the way the UI looks and feels now. It's far less intuitive, the graphics are terrible, and the font choices make it look like a much cheaper, inferior phone. The gallery icon looks like it was stolen from a kid's toy.

I have changed to apple after Samsung’s disaster update, apple designs are much better and phone faster.

Err... I think that's a bit of an exaggeration. Nothing could persuade me to go to Apple, though a different Android phone might be considered.

Thank you!!!!!! I thought it was just me! Its ugly. I hate the icons and everything else about it. I liked it the way it was before the update. Moderators if you're reading this, please pass this on to the developers.

I am in the day care field, which I love! While using google translate today to help communicate with a new child in their language, another child in my class beside me asked if it was my kids phone? Children as young as three and 4 yr olds use phones these days and when a child has to ask if it is my phone or my child's phone there is a problem! The theme/ color scheme should have been a choice theme available on the themes page, not something I was forced to live with.
My family has always used android phones, we are not apple people. No offense to apple people anywhere its just not for us. I will not buy a phone simply because it is the next new thing, and slowing phones down so people will by a newer version is not for me. Neither does that fit well into my budget like most people. So, if that WAS the intent here, and I really hope not, then Samsung phones may not be the phones for me.
Only time will tell. Let's see how, and how quick they handle this issue.
