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!!!

Had one member tell me to go buy an Iphone. GRRRRRR. My Note 9, the Note series is/was a useable easy to configure tool, now it is more like a $1200 paperweight, or door-stop if you prefer. Wheel chock, table leveler,,,, (insert your description here)

I Agree!  Working in mobile for several years; I'm used to the constant changes but this one is horrible.

 

I used the black theme "sd black" for the black background on everything and I love the icons.  This previously made my call dialer and texting keyboard black too, which are now both back to white.  I can't turn on night mode with a theme.

 

On top of this, everything is very hard to read!  Location for example, is selected turned on right now and blue, but I can't even see the location icon in the circle because it's blue too!  Another example:  On the notifications, you can press and hold to select "block" then "save" to turn off notifications by that application.   Now I can't see save at all!  Luckily I already knew where it was.

 

This update is garbage.  Oh and my phone is slower, no doubt.  Running tap baseball 2019 was way smoother an hour ago, how its extremely choppy.

Has anyone figured out how to go back? Is there any reponse by Samsung to reconsider? My phone updated at a horrible time in my life and I had no time to figure out wth was going on.  It has been weeks and I am still trying to figure it out. I absolutely hate the texting window.  My most recent texts do not move to the top???????  anyone have any idea how to fix that??? 

thx.

Go to keyboard settings to turn swipe to text back on, the update turns it off. I also thought it was gone which highly annoyed me too, one of my fave features
