Samsung S23 Ultra updated today and I am seriously irritated with this update. First thing I noticed my navigation bar, I had the option of swipe or buttons. I have always used swipe for navigation and my recent apps were on the right and my back to the left with home being center. You used to be able to choose left or right for either. Now it is incredibly difficult to get to my recently used apps. Everytime I used the navigation bar it sends me to the home screen. If I wanted to go to the home screen I'd swipe in the middle. Everywhere does it now. Can't go back a page or to recent apps it all sends me home. There's an annoying period where you have to hold to get recent apps to show up. This is stupid and inefficient. Secondly it keeps opening apps up when I'm trying to scroll through my pages of apps that I'm not selecting just trying to turn the page and it's not responding correctly just opening apps. Very disappointed so far and will continue to notice things I hate about this update throughout the day. Wish they would revert the update.

So what about those of us who do not have the Goodlock app available in our region?

I contacted Samsung Chat support to begin the process of lodging a complaint about this really bad change. You should NOT have to download two third party apps to configure something as basic as the Navigation Bar to your liking, especially when it's simply reverting back to the same configuration we all had prior the the 6.1 update.

 

I was told to use the Samsung Members App to submit an Error Report under Other and include a description of the issue and I also included screenshots of the navigation bar settings window and the gesture hint being ever-present at the bottom of the screen.

Here is the link to the error report instructions using Samsung Members app:

Here are my screenshots of the nav bar settings page for reference as well

I refuse to download a third party app to fix this issue so I'm just using the old school buttons layout for the time being until the One UI 6.1 teams addresses this massively annoying oversight.

I shouldn't have to install another stupid app to do what the old UI was able to do by itself. Samsung, stop breaking things that work.

I have raised a bug on this as well. I'll use the work around but I want the option to not use the extra 200mb of bloat
