This new update literally sucks

I am so angry, I got my S9 literally only a couple of weeks ago, upgraded from an S6, and this update literally makes me want to go back to my S6... everything new about this update is so wrong. I hate the new way the recents are set out, swiping up is so annoying why has that changed, literally nothing was wrong with it before. I hate that the time at the top is on the left now. The notifications on the lock screen are really annoying now, you have to tap the thing to actually see them. I've also noticed that all the passwords that were saved with my fingerprint aren't working anymore, also there is no option for using fingerprint to get onto secret mode on Samsung internet anymore. This new update is the worst Samsung have ever done. I wish they would just revert back to the last update because this one is so cheap looking. Another thing is I quite liked getting rid of the buttons at the bottom and having to swipe up to see them, I don't understand why that's not a possibility anymore. Not to mention you can't turn off the Bixby button anymore, only to one press or two. This update has legitimately ruined my day...

Really upset as well, even the time is flipped over to the left side I'm never goi f to get used to that and all the comors changed from things we have learned to recognize over the years all our basic tools look strange is gonna b slow going and was not constructive or purposeful. Total bs I wish u never allowed the update I usually avoid for a long time but had the time and went with it. Miserable

Just had to update my Samsung S8+ in a mandatory fashion, and it is the absolute worst change I have ever seen. Many of the stylistic features remind me of the iPhone. Why did I get an Android device in the first place? Placing the clock on the upper left side is utterly distracting at all moments of the day. It was originally on the upper right, where it was never noticed unless I actually wanted to view it. Then, of course, there is the fact that you cannot customize your UI. On top of that everything has a very childish, cartoon-like feel to it. Even when I view the clock and the alarm settings, everything is made larger as though I have some severe issue reading up close. I also have to mention that being unable to disable the Bixby button is absolutely horrendous. It was already placed in the worst spot possible, but now there is nothing you can do about it. News flash Samsung, we never wanted it in the first place! As it stands a product I use every single day, and perhaps the most used product I have frustrates me to no end every second thanks to this new update.

 

Samsung, you should know that you have most likely lost a customer after this. Customers do not want Bixby or other apps that are severely intrusive, that's why we turn it off, disable, and prevent them from working in the first place. 

 

Forcing your customers to deal with  Bixby, forcing updates to occur that no one wants, having zero UI customization capability, copying the stylistic choices of Apple, and just forcing your ideas on customers is taking its toll. At present, Samsung is 100% off my list of product choices, whether its a TV, phone, tablet, a washer/dryer, or anything else.

I just joined the community and have no idea of how to post to a thread, don't see any options. This new update sucks. I called Verizon and Samsung and said so and yelled at these morons on the phone that I paid for and that I now hate. And demanded to speak with or email someone at Samsung to figure out what 13 year old programmer ruined everyone's phone. So, if you can post it up, here's the email that samSTUNG - stung by a suck ass update, gave me to complain, so post it everywhere and everyone should send a million emails to get them to revert back to what we all paid for:

 

officeofthepresident@sea.samsung.com

 

So maybe if people use that they'll revert back or something. It's just awful. Lost data. BS icons, pushed ads and games, unrecognizable icons, colors, it looks like this phone was made for a 13 year old or someone who is 90 years old.  Want to throw it out the window on the highway.

I did figure out if you change themes, you can find one where you can at least see the options

The calendar update totally sucks! You cannot see each date only the day of the week that you are on. In order to set an appointment in my calendar I literally have to take the time to count or multiply.  This is the worst update by far! Way to go Samsung. 😠

Yep. Its not very pretty...Samsung giving us the ability to customize then taking it away. I am so done with defending Samsung only to have them go backward. Then, they ignor everyones complaints. Never a word...
