Reverse from 6.1 UI change

Is there a way to reverse back from the latest UI 6.1 update? The new navigation with gestures is quite uncomfortable compared to the old one and doesn't work well when I have the keyboard open or have something displayed horizontally. There is no way to customise the gestures with buttons to set them up as they used to be and it's quite disappointing.

I am looking for a way to reverse it or otherwise I would have to switch to the button layout.

Hiya, 

I'd love to reverse mine too, but not sure if this is possible? No idea why Samsung thought we'd love to operate Apple-like Samsung devices... The updated nav bar is awful, and I hope they will fix it during the next update! 

However, I found a guides on how to hide the swiping buttons: 

Search for Goodlock on Samsung store, choose NavStar
NavStart: Swipe gestures --> ON --> Transparent hint ON --> Allow back gesture in full screen OFF --> Enable extra gesture settings ON

Now go back to the nav bar settings on your device: Choose Swipe option --> More options --> Turn off the gesture hint. Done

No reverting possible. Use apps suggested

I found the new navbar ridiculous too. It overrides any side gesture that's in the app for example I couldn't get the side bar menu out because of this new UI.

I agree I really don't like the new change to the navigation, even thinking of changing phones, it looks like An Iphone screen now,,,, not good

This is so bloody annoying to introduce a change that is basically the driving control of your device and you changed it all of sudden. That's messing up the mussle memory. I mean would you swap and rearrange gas and brake paddles in a car - just because some bloody ***** thought this was a good idea.

New navbar is absolutely sux. 

If samsung won't bring the old 3-zones navbar back, I will switch to apple devices (they force me to use my s23u as apple device, so why should I stay on s23u? )

I hate this thing... I was postponing from updating my device to 1ui 6.1 

but then I decided: ok, I'll give it a chance. 
The first thing they did with this update - they broke my usage. Hate it. Will throw out this shitty s23u out if they don't bring it back!!!! HALLOOOO!! SAMSUNG!!!
