The title says it all. The UI is okay to deal with but some of the new features are terrible. I've had my S9 for about 8 months now, and I've never had any problems with it TIL NOW. Closing the apps feature is so complicated, you have to swipe up instead of swiping left or right which is more difficult to do if you're using one hand! The End Call feature isn't there! The photos on my people edge look pixelated! And my clock is on the upper left hand corner, which is very annoying and you can't do anything in the settings to fix it! Fix thisss!!!
So a quick update regarding the butt dialing, I too was having the same problem and I was driving literally all my contacts crazy. I completely found out by fluke, stumbled across something completely by accident and it seems to have corrected the problem. There's something on the phone called direct dial, I don't know if this feature has always been there or if it arrived with the pie update but for some reason it was turned on even though I did not turn it on so regardless it was either installed with the update or turned on as a default with the update. This function makes it so that if you bring your phone to your ear whoever contact information is on your screen it will automatically call them. So I'm thinking if you're texting and you go to put it in your pocket and maybe you're slightly too quick before the screen times out that it's calling these people thinking you've brought it up to your ear similar motion with the phone. I have turn this function off and so far have not butt dialed a person since.
Look at what I got:

Took me about 5 hours but was able to get back my beloved OREO using odin and the sammobile flash files. Most of my settings gone but was able to save all my data.. Amazing thing is it's like a new phone, fast, and the firmware on the sammobile site was a better version of oreo somehow I'm getting all these new cool options I didn't even know about!
I swear, downgrading to OREO is like actually upgrading the phone! I have a note 8 korean KT Emperor Edition 256GB internal.
Well put, it's awful! I especially agree with your istatement, so true. I hope they do something about it in the very near future!
To get back the recent menu or even new ones, doenload good lock from Samsung in the Samsung store, open it and choose task changer and install it, then you have loads of official options. There's a few more things you can customise if you want as well.
When all of us choose the Samsung S9 , you Samsung tell us that this phone have some features..for cameras, for video , for message, etc. So, we look, think about it , make a choice and pay for this. For Samsung S9 .
It is not either professional or ethic to change our soft that just because you can and have power to our soft.
When I upgrade to Pie I lost the features for what I pay when I buy Samsung S9 and not another Samsung or another phone.
So, for my view you , Samsung, are good to pay because of this. Give us money back because this is cheating. WE don't have the phone that we choose & pay because you make changes without our consent.If you want make changes, to improve ..you put more , somenthing new but not change what WE buy .
