Don't Update to One UI/Pie!!!!!

I really wish I could turn back time and undo the frickin' damage I have done to my £800 S9+ 

I implore people to wait - as the One UI/Pie update I downloaded and installed last night is horrendous!!!

 

Issues noticed within 12 hours of the update.  

 

  1. The awesome little navigation bar that used to autohide, but appear when you swipe - has been taken away completely!  Now you either have some incredibly ugly icons, or horrible grey lines at the bottom.  Urg!  So I turned the icons off, and now it's a total guessing game for where I'm swiping and for what.  Because the pop up menu has been 'upgraded' and now doesn't pop up anymore - at all.  So - lose precious screen estate or gain it all but swipe randomly and hope for the best.  Ridiculous.
  2. Bixby - that evil data whore of an app - what a piece of *****.  The button is on the wrong side of the phone for most users, and every time you want to take a picture or watch TV - you inexplicably end up pressing the stupid frickin Bixby button.  Thanks Bixby - for interrupting my viewing when I simply want to turn the volume down.  Thanks Bixby - for getting in the way when trying to capture precious moments using the otherwise amazing camera....and losing the moment because I accidentally squeezed you for more than a microsecond - call that a long press???   Before this One UI update, users were forced to sign up for samsung account they don't want or need, to be able to simply disable that stupid button.  Until they long pressed it.  Or accidentally swiped too far left on their screens.  I hate Bixby - and to make it permanently switched on in the new update is just a kick in the teeth.  If users could remap the button, or better still turn it off completely, I'm wondering how many will!

  3. The updated has totally screwed up the menus and keyboard.  I bought the S9+ for the huge screen and ability to see lots of information on one screen.  Well thanks Samsung - your new update put that awesome quality in the bin.  Now you get over a 3rd of each screen taken up with a huge empty box with huge letters saying Settings Is this really necessary!!!!?
  4. Samsung has screwed up the multiwindow function.  Completely - broken.  You used to be able to swipe from the corners and sides to resize almost anything you were looking at or using.  I used to have 3 or 4 at a time.  Loved it.  Now broken.  There is a workaround - but you have to use the new (and awful) task manager.  

  5. The new task manager/recent apps.  Now it's not just more difficult to actually find the button without a huge hideous icon, grey line, or no menu at all, when you do get it, it very unhelpfully fills the whole screen with a preview of the app - you were *last* looking at.  Try it (those who've been afflicted by this crappy update) - see how annoyingly it spins to the app you last used.  Not the one you were just on.  Before the update - the last app you looked at was on top, and you could easily and smoothly flip through all the others like a deck of playing cards.  Not any more.  Broken.  Oh - and if you want multiscreen - you have to click the icon on the app in the preview.  BUT GUESS WHAT!  ***IT'S****BROKEN****  Yes indeed - click on split screen and your app gets shoved to the top of the screen.  Can't see it - can't use it - can't close it - no matter how many times you click on the unhelpful X button.  So let's try multiscreen.  Nope - let's try Pop Up.  Ahh - finally - now we get a screen we can move about - but wait - it limits the size to a box way too large and square.  Before the update - it was a nice small rectangle - perfect for watching TV and playing chess.  Can't do both anymore.  Can't multitask anymore.  Thanks Samsung.

  6. Did I mention how ***** Bixby is?

  7. Yes - there's more - Samsung have ruined the keyboard layout - now there's a huge gap underneath - total
    waste of screen space.Screenshot_20190207-113840_Chrome.jpg

  8. How about how they've screwed with the layout and settings of their previously fabulous camara app?  No longer are we treated to a lovely, simply intuatively named list of resolutions - now we have to mess about pressing extra buttons to get past all this tripe about aspect ratios.  Before - even the newest user to smartphones could see the best quality - is at the top - end of - no question - now they have to delve into multiple confusing submenus to get the best options.  Assuming they ever look again - used to be easy to get to.

  9. Hate what they've done with the way you choose photo formats - I use Pro 80% of the time - and now the menu keeps skipping past it because it's in the wrong place, and the wrong size font, with the wrong amount of spacing between the words.  ROLL BACK THE CHANGES!!!!
  10. I know - I'm bored writing this now - but I've also spent £800/$1,000 on a mobile phone less than a year ago - and now it's broken.  So on with the complaints.  Widgets are completely broken.  Screenshot_20190207-113920_Samsung Experience Home.jpg

    Can't add them, move them or delete them. See the white line around the app?  Can't move it to a new screen.  Can't resize it.  Can't delete it.  BROKEN!!!

  11. What else was there....ummm - yeah - I like the night mode.

They removed the filters that came with the pro mode and gave us a half baked system. I use pro mode for everything in serene mode. Now I have to move the sliders to figure it out on my own. It's not like there's ticks on the siders or color like auto. Camera update on the one UI is....alright but they removed key things to make it easy for everybody to use and it honestly sucks to deal with these half baked ideas.

Pro mode video is removed, and I also believe that the image stabilization is worse than before. The video tool that we PAID FOR is now UNUSABLE!

I loved the old camera app.
Now i have to mess up my organisation to use Odin - a 3rd party tool, to fix it.
How could they mess up this bad?!

Not a ***** peep to be heard from Samsung or Google (heard that the Google design teams had a hand in this abortion)

I don't imagine they even care about the 'customer experience", they are just pushing ahead with their plans. I'm thinking that there should be a global boycott of all Samsung; washers, driers, stoves, phones, etc. maybe that would get them to listen.81Q2jJv4qNL._SY550_.jpg

The only way to go back is via a 3rd party pc software called odin, but I'm still figuring it out... and I'm scared of messing up

Whole uni UI design is like it was created by kids, i think anybody can do better design, it is simply ugly, dark/black mode helps just little. I just bought few days back A40 instead of my J3 2016 which has now problems with latest updates of apps and i am pretty dissapointed. Icons are really ugly and big, icons could be changed hopefully so that have solution but what is worse is wasting of space everywhere across all apps. Notification bar is covering whole screen because on top are big unused area and between icons is big space as well (it is very ugly and not effective), whole notification field could be done in max 4 lines even 3 i think. Gallery app same case on top big white area  wasting space which looks ugly and it does not show more content compared to my 5 inch display on J3 2016. Notepad design is simply so ugly design, i hate it (i was using notepad pretty often) .Settings menu same case. If i have a look on my J3 2016 with lollipop it is becautiful compared to this new "modern" look also more space efficient and comfortable to control. In A40 because there is big display 5.9 they dont use it but waste space. Keyboard same case, takes more space and it is wasting of space. All Touchwiz interfaces are way more effective and more pretty compared to One Ui Design. Please fix it Samsung, i used to like samsung phones due to interface a lot but now it is the opposite. Dear SAMSUNG please take for example any old SAMSUNG Touchwiz phone (J3 2016, ....) and make new phones to use display areas effective like you used to do. AND make another model like A40c (compact) with same specification as A40 with edge to edge screen but just 5 inch display please, more than 5 inch is not comfortable to control by one hand. Thanks a lot.

Everyday when I contact Samsung they keep telling me the same thing in a script. One theme that keeps coming up is that these forums are not the place to air your concerns, it is on the main Samsung page> contact us, or calling tech support at Samsung.

FYI.... I've talked to Samsung customer care and Samsung technical dept

Basically its, once you've downloaded,  your stuck with it.  Of course you get, this feedback will help the developers future updates 

So really talking directly to Samsung is useless, that's why we have these forums. To get help from fellow users who care. Unlike Samsung who don't care. I really can't understand why they would drastically change a winning formula . If it's not broken don't fix it !!!!

I feel that eveyone who has enjoyed spending lots of money, enduring the new update, and now being told your screwed and go pay for fixes and fix it yourself should call in to tech support every day. That would get the message to them also, becasue I really do not belive they monitor these forums.

Oh and BTW, I believe the development dept's motto is "Keep fixing it until it is broken"

This is worse.. I have so many apps and after the update  I can't find installed apps when I search from search bar. They are all there and I can access them manually  but I can quick search and find them . If I search Google for ex.. It brings docs and content related to Google and app store results but not native installed apps..this update is the worst and looking at the direction in which Samsung is going  Iam gonna leave you guys after 6 years of being a Samsung fan .

I agree with most of your gripes and also have my own, which changed with the oreo update. Its the notification counters(badges) Why make them disappear when clearing the notifications from the top? At least give us the option to keep badges as have always been able to do.

Also when closing apps, it is almost like an iphone now with having to swipe them away upwards now. 

Kill off the bixby button no one likes it!!!

 

 

 

I complained about the update a couple of days after i got it with it being laggie and slow, only to be told that i need to shut apps down properly...i know iv had galaxy s phones since the 1st one. Im not stupid!

Samsung has seemed to have turned into a dictatorship of company that tells its customers to do what they think is best.

Listen to your customers please.
