I hate the new update for S9 - Android Pie

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!!!

 

Pisteng yawa!

I've started my point. Blame Google, demand changes from Google. Unless Samsung develop their own OS, they can't change things. Hence my suggestion to visit Google forums. Tell Google you aren't buying an Android phone again..... 🤔
I felt that was clear.

No! Smasung obviously have imput how their Bixby button is going to be designed, such as, telling them not to add a trun off option. As if samsung will not have any input, therefore it's a samsung issue. By the way your arrogance stinks.

I don't completely agree. Whilst Google develop the base Android OS, it is up to the phone manufacturer to customise that base OS to fit their phone.
e.g a Huawei running android 8, doesn't look or act the same as a Samsung running the same base OS. Yes they are similar but not the same hardware or application/widget software.

There is also nothing that says: Samsung must force the update of all their newer models to Android 9. The current Android 9 update for Samsung looks like it would be the absolute basic version of Android 9.

It seems to me that Samsung have made very little effort customising the OS to fit their phones. I don't know why this is, but if the new Samsung S10 releases with a nice crisp looking Android 9 (that us S9/S9+ users don't get) then I would see it as a very under-hand tactic to make their new flagship look like more of an improvement than it really is.

On the other hand, if the S10 releases with a very similar looking OS then I would question how Samsung thinks they will make any sales. 'cus it looks trash.

The new update is awful I moved to Samsung for the note 9 but feel like going back to iPhone after a very disappointing software update multi window is no longer available many settings have been removed apps look like a child's drawings overall a disgrace to smartphones

Why on earth did they get of multi window? What a stupid thing to do, it's like they're actively trying to make the phone worse!

I don't think you mean that.

Look... no one was attacking you, chill 😂 I was suggesting that time might be well spent also visiting Google forums... no one is obligated to do that, I felt it might be helpful....
But cool... you do you 🙂
