S9 pie upgrade - Hate the new look

Highlighted
First Poster

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!!!

I've already asked them. They can not give solution, yet and I still hate this update ...

Although I have already commented here I have also found that this has also ruined a lot of functionality and features in my phone and my phone is slower and the touchscreen feels less responsive. Because Apple has got away with slowing down their phones before a new one comes out, are Samsung just going to start doing the same thing?

  I know about the navigation option.

Thanks for trying to help but the theme and icons is only the tip of the iceberg and realistically I never used themes as I like what Samsung used  to supply.

Yes, they don't have any solution. I already talk to them.

While we're at it... I *hate* the colored notifications on the AOD. If there's a fix for that, I haven't found it yet...

I could not agree more. Ghastly! It is so childlike. 

I am embarrassed to pick my phone up!

I swapped from Appke years ago. But OMG.. I might swing back there after looking at this kiddy like screen!
