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...

Since this latest update I'm unable to use certain apps, it is affecting the the use other apps including calendar, Google maps, Waze and trainline, all of which I use heavily in my work. Why do I suddenly lose gps when on a call???

It was a similar situation  with an Apple update that drove me to Samsung a couple of years ago in the first place.  This Samsung update has me seriously looking at my next move - NOT SAMSUNG.  I literally can't stand what this update has done to my phone.  Please let us undo this update!!!!!

It's like a nightmare I can't wake up from, One UI ruined everything I loved my S9 for.

I just purchased my note 9 last December because of the way the multitasking worked with the swiping from the top and the easiest accessibility from the menu button now it looks like a pixel operates like a pixel has missing key features that I like about the Samsung if I wanted a pixel I would have bought a pixel and then I call Samsung at office and there's no way to put it back to android 8.1 if the phone came out of the box like this I certainly won't have purchased it to begin with good job Samsung for ***** it up . It was between this phone on the Asus rogue I definitely regret my purchase of the note 9 now that it's been simplified this is a power user phone and now it's simple user phone I definitely won't be purchasing any Samsung products in the future unless Samsung rectifies this problem

Agreed. That last update did much more harm than good.  (I thought that was only an Apple thing.)  I can't read my contacts and miscellaneous apps are no longer working. They should give us the option to do a version-rollback if we don't need the new "feature".  Shame on Samsung for not beta testing this. Oh wait... we ARE the beta test. <sigh>.

SAME!  ARGHHH! CAN I VENT HERE? I'VE NEVER BEEN SO P****D OFF FROM AN UPDATE! This POS literally changed all of my views, notifications, sounds, EVERYTHING! And not for the better - it's like they've played 'hide-n-seek' with my most important apps and views. F%%%&&**!!! Samsung! YOU SUCK!

 

I've been a lifer with Samsung but honestly considering another option today because of this *****TY upgrade they've forced on my phone.

 

I use my phone for work, so this costs me time = money to figure ***** out and I'm absolutely pissed they would force such a lame, intrusive, poorly written pile of code on MY phone. YOU SUCK SAMSUNG! I HOPE YOUR STOCK PLUMMETS DUE TO THSI!!!
