Oh my God, what an ugly update on my S9+, who in their right mind would release something like this? Did anyone even look what they were doing? Ugly icons (dont tell me to buy themes and icons🤬) emojee screen, battery dies twice as fast? WHAT WAS THE UPGRADE? Looks like you just turned my phone into a pile of garbage. A $1200 piece of garbage. I want my Old OS. I want my cool crisp icons and screen back not this windows 97 looking *****.
I want a return authorization so I can bring it back for a refund. I agree totally! If I wanted a Fisher-Price play toy I would have gone to Walmart. This is now not the phone I tried out and purchased at the store. Changing it after a customer buys it is CRIMINAL!! Someone needs to start a civil lawsuit against Samsung for malicious mischief and criminal damage. Destroying someones personal property is a crime. They need to put it back the way it was when I spent $1100.00 on it!!
@The_V I found the setting was a bit buggy. Solved it on mine by switching off, leaving Settings then going back into Settings and reenabling.
Settings > Lock Screen > Always on Display > Display Mode.
I hate the new update!! It looks like it was designed by a child and it just completely messed up everything. I hate the way messages look, notifications is a nightmare, the alarm looks creepy when it rings, contacts... I can go on. SAMSUNG you need to listen to your customers. I was going to buy S10 plus but not after seeing the update.
mine shows, yet the battery has to be recharged halfway thru the day. I've just had this Note 9 a month, I traded in my note 4. I wished now that I never would have. It just breaks my heart that an entity like Samsung would pull a "Bait & Switch" manouver like this. Sell you a phone then change it after youve paid for it. I am so hurt.
You are 100% correct! I have wasted two days trying to get the phone back to the one I bought. I have exahusted every avenue. It is going back to the store. I hope I can find another phone like the Note, with all of the abilities it used to have. I don't play games. THe last video game I played was called Pong. I liked the 'businesslike' look and operability of it. I had the Note 4 for a long time and just loved it. I was just getting that way with the new Note 9 and nowit is useless to me.
It may have the same functionality, however, I did not purchase the hunt & peck Fisher-Price toy, at the store I bought a certain feel and ease of operation, that all changed in a few minutes along with my respect for Samsung.
