I just upgraded my S9 to the new Pie upgrade and I completely HATE the new look. The icons and especially the incoming/outcoming call display is HIDEOUS. I tried downloading some new themes to change the the overly colorful look but couldn't since it doesn't change the display of incoming/outgoing call.
The icons and the new look resemble to cheap phones (no offense). But I purchased such an expensive phone because of its sharp and crisp looks and now after the update it has becoming extremely disturbing to even look at it.
I would really request Samsung to get this changed and go back to their old style of display or get a better one. This upgraded one is just horrible!!!
Before starting I'd recommend reading up on it, it is possible to get yourself in to a bumcheek clenching situation lol
Be sure to get the proper firmware for your carrier and region too. If you look up what the firmware number means you'll find good explanations so you can search the correct thing.
If you do get the blue screen of misery the solutions using Google are generally outdated too.
Something is terrible wrong. Since the update my phone is just performing bad! Freezing, slow, battery discharge, fixing everything or adding. Who someone here said or mention a class action lawsuit? This is really bad. Is a phone that does not work at all! Unbelievable they dare to do this stunt!
Now I'm being pushed to update to Pie. LOL
Hopefully , I can pause the update indefinitely.
Did you switch off all the auto system update including in developer options?
You can also turn off the notification but can't remember how off hand
I did switch it off in developer options on the note 8, so far so good. Not so good for the note 9 however, I did not think Samsung would commit larceny so it rests in the box it came in.
