The title says it all. The UI is okay to deal with but some of the new features are terrible. I've had my S9 for about 8 months now, and I've never had any problems with it TIL NOW. Closing the apps feature is so complicated, you have to swipe up instead of swiping left or right which is more difficult to do if you're using one hand! The End Call feature isn't there! The photos on my people edge look pixelated! And my clock is on the upper left hand corner, which is very annoying and you can't do anything in the settings to fix it! Fix thisss!!!
CLOCK FIX - Actually works plus other fixes...
Download from the galaxy store goodlock (Not play store as that is an entirely different app)
Install, open and then install quickstar. Open that up. Half way down is an option to position clock. Have a good look at the other plugin option too from goodlock as there Is a lot of customization fixes. Well worth spending some time doing so. I have managed to rectify a few issues created from pie update now.
Unfortunately the battery problem is still a concern.
Problem with this is the app is region locked and isn't available in most parts of the world. There are workarounds, but that means even more fiddling and tinkering - and why do we need to tinker and fiddle AT ALL anyway, just for such a basic little setting, like, Samsung please?
Really dropped the ball with OneUI. Worse thing is, tech sites praising it to high heavens.
Need a lot more complaints from people on the Samsung members app or they won't do anything. People complained about not being able to unlock the phone unless they used 2 clicks they listened. Everyone complain about this ugly new update they'll listen too.
But why should we have to complain through a particular app that we search for? I've emailed CS and they said the same, surly they should collect feedback through a range of processes and methods...
I'm back at home now after traveling and will be trying to get a refund from the retailer. Then switching back to Google (pixel rather than nexus like I used to have) and not returning to Samsung. It's genuinely the worst tech decision I've seen in a decade! What madness!
It's a bit of a pain to do it with no instructions and risk, and it seems you have to factory reset. I might aswell escape from the problem at the same time...?
