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!

There is no way to reverse it, we are stuck unless you root it and install your own system.

That would be the Email address to have for sure, but at this point it would be so clogged up that it would be a waste.  

I am beginning to think that the real pressure needs to come from all of the sellers of their products. I feel that if Verizon, T-Mobile, ATT, etc. made calls to their wholesale suppliers and shared their concerns that Samsung might be more forthcoming in a resolution to all of the problems everyone, globally.

How can we get Samsung to pay attention? I am also disappointed in the company.

Has anyone successfully returned their phone to a carrier they bought it from due to this? I'm considering it but we're on a monthly payment plan for this phone and have only paid 3 installments so far. AND got it on a B1G1 promotion, so my daughters reg S9 might have to go back to.  I'm not sure it'll fly.

Being in 3 months  is going to be tough. I was in less than a month and it is going back tomorrow. 

Worst case scenario would be that you battle the collectors of the account and possibly take a hit on your credit. Unless you have a history with the company and they are symathetic to the problems that Samsung has caused. 

I feel for you!

My phone just updated to one ui, and its like a 5 year old has taken my phone, its looks like its for kids, the time has moved from one side to the other for no reason, the entire phone just feels cheap and nasty now, why did you think this was a good idea?

 

It horible, I just want my old grown up phone back, how do i get rid of these over sized kiddy buttons, put the time back in the right place, on the right every time i pick my phone up i find something else has changed and for the worse!

 

How was this approved?

 

It just looks stupid, what possed you to make these changes?



O and you have destoryed my privacey as well, so now when i try and switch between apps they are all full screen and any one can see them all, so that porn i had left open in the back ground is now on full display for eveyr one to see if i want to swtich apps, what nut job thought that this new ui was an impovment?

That is incorrect - you do not need root. You can use Odin with a firmware revision you want from Updato to revert to any version you like. This does not void your warranty. After that is done, you can simply use a package disabler from the Play store to completely disable the updates and the notifications, along with anything else that annoys you. Combine that with bxActions and you'll easily remap the silly Bixby button.

 

I'm starting to think that people are just blindly complaining instead of reading previous replies in this thread. It'll take literally 5 minutes to flash a prior version of Android that you're happy with.

 

I'm back on Oreo with no intentions of updating again.
