Allowed the update to happen today (06 Feb 19) & now there are so many things I can't see... white text on white background. Quick access to settings - I now just have blue or white circles, no idea what's what. Keyboard has changed. Cant see text in my Calendar... the list goes on & on!! What is this all about? FURIOUS that I've got to spend hours finding out how to change things back to how I want them & not possible most the time!

Then find trying to post this impossible too!

If your using a Samsung Theme then others have had similar issues to you.

 

The remedy is to only use the Samsung stock theme or find another theme that's currently more compatible and let the current theme developer know via feedback in their page in Playstore.

 

 


Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²² Ultra 256Gb in Phantom Black.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

I've had the same complaint and more, I'm just constantly making complaints to Samsung members hoping they make this a beta and not an official update.

Thanks - this worked but it's been very time consuming trying get the phone back to how I like it... lots of icons disappeared after choosing new theme.
Thanks again.

How is that a remedy? I have paid for many themes and now since this latest update I can’t use any of them and have to use a stock Samsung theme because an update they pushed out messed everything up?

It's an interim workaround @slvrsleeper

Update from today 4/14/2019 messed my phone up. Majority of my apps are no longer working. There are no app updates available. Can the phone update be removed?

The last two updates have messed my settings up. I am sick of it. I will no longer purchase Samsung products. Mandating we use only their themes is ridiculous. I don't want a phone I cant customize my way, if I was down for being treated like this I would have bought an iphone

I hate everything the "upgrade" has done to my phone, right from "used to be able to "swipe down and mute or unmute phone". No longer works. Icons have changed, the settings are all changed. My keyboard is messed up. On and on. I don't even recognize my phone. This will likely more me to never buy Samsung products if this is the way they make "upgrades". Why in the world would you "deoptimized one's phone settings?"
