Navigation is horrible using swipe since 6.1 update

I never thought I would say this but I'm finally going to give the iPhone a go. I've been using Samsung since the S2 and loved them until they made navigation so awkward with this new 6.1 update.

I have big hands and I can't reach the other side of the phone to swipe to go back, so I am forced to use two hands all the time. 

I never tried the iPhone because I was so used to navagating the Samsung UI and I didn't want to have to get used to the UI on the iPhone but now that Samsung made this change I ordered a new iPhone upgrade earlier today. 

They won't go back to the way we are all used to because Google wants to use swipe up for their AI. 

Whoever though putting the back swipe all the way on the other side of the screen must not use gestures to navigate because it makes using the phone a terrible experience. I can no longer use my phone with one hand like I have always done.

Search the forum, it is a Google decision to undo it use Goodlock

IPhone will still be a two handed phone. Plus it doesn't have a swipe to go back. You have to goto the top of the page to tap on the back arrow to go back
Plus they have an annoying swipe down from the top gestures.
You are far better off downloading the Samsung Goodlock app and the Navstar plugin to customise the phone gestures
I have very large hands and get on with the swipe gestures ok. I can do a fair bit one handed on my S24 Ultra
If you are determined to look at an iPhone, I'd suggest going into a shop and playing about with one.
I personally find the iPhone annoying to use. I have an iPhone 15 Pro Max as well

I have the same problem. Please samsung bring back the past navigation bar otherwise i must leave samsung and go for other brand. i am using samsung from S2 model till now and its worst thing ever they did this time.

Its really irritating me i am not comfort with phone anymore.

I have suggestion for samsung that if you want bring some stupid changes or copy iphone navigations then you could do its ok but you must not remove that old navigation option we want i mean you can put all three navigation models so whoever is comfort with that navigation he or she will use that one no need to remove it completely.

I am really disappointed about new update and i am regret to update my phone if there was an optoon for reverting i reverted right now.

It's not Samsung that's done these navigation gestures. It's Google. So any new android phone you buy will have the same thing
Samsung has an app called Goodlock that you can download and get the Navstar plugin app to customise the gestures more to what you want
