I've gone from loving my phone to absolutely hating it overnight since new update was installed, who designed it? APPLE? it's shocking, now I get notifications while I'm playing games wich winds me up, is there a way i can turn this of like before as I don't want WhatsApp messages appearing while I'm playing games. the taskbar is the worst though it's on or its just smaller I keep shutting pages by accident. If it's not broke why fix it? everybody has a little winge when a new update drops but this is not things in new places doing new things this is a definite DOWNGRADE and a much less practical phone a phone I now hate

Found it you can only use it or see it if you have the task bar thing permanently on which sucks

I actually like the update but tastes may differ.

 

Anyhow, how what features do you think that can use the most improvements?

hello...my phone is just worse less practical im getting notifications when playing games that was a feature I really liked blocking notifications and calls while playing games why is that feature gone it was a choice if you used it or not and I'm really struggling with the toolbar I had it off till you flicked up but now its on or small maybe I can get used to that, and the look of my phone is like a 5-year-old has been let loose with crayons

You might wish to try the do not disturb mode to block notifications, it helps for me

Besides of that you may want to consider installing an alternative theme that fits your taste better in the Galaxy Market.

I get I can use that but I have to manually turn that on and off before and after I play a game whereas you did not before the update, updates are supposed to make things better and easier not harder and worse

Actually you can still block it using the game tools, it might have been forgotten with the update.

Strange, did you open the game though the game launcher?
Apprentice

Yeah I only use game launcher, the games tool has gone since the update i have searched high and low.
