This update is incredibly bad. It looks cheaply made and I really hope they change it back to the original. Please do something about it. Makes me want to throw this phone away.
My Note9 just updated and it's horrible.
The split screen is terribly cumbersome. I can't close a window intuitively. Have to select in pop-up view, then look for the X. No other way to close an app that I can find. (Update: I can close an app by swiping up. )
Alternately, In trying to get a text code to access my banking app (which I had to re-authorize this device), I can't manage to get split screen so that I can copy the code. When re-selecting the bank app, it reloads, and locks me out.
There might be some fine updates here, butbthe split screen management is not one of them. It is a big step backwards. Horrible.
I have more complaints, but I'll stop here.
One of the biggest issues is the screen space is actually smaller. I have an s+ and now have black bars top and bottom. The new swiping system works sporadically. Trying to change between open apps is now difficult, I used to be able to see all open apps now I have to scroll. If I wanted an iPhone interface I would have bought an iPhone. This will probably be my last Samsung.
