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.
AGREED!!! RUINED MY $1200 NOTE 9..
ITS NOT WORTH THE MONEY NOW..
And what's so funny is Samsung obviously knows how we feel.. I have read 0 ZERO Positive posts.. turn back the update!!!!!
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.
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.
I really really really really really really absolutely HATE the new recent apps windows.. i usually like to have maby 20-30 apps i could scroll horizontally quickly. Now its absolutely obnoxious its really awefull and SUCKS its a piece of shi* idea i absolutely HATE it!!!!!!!!!
