Just got my S9+ today, was updating and then got the UI update, i am not a fan of it and I cannot find any ways of reverting back at all. Smart switch does not do anthing either. Help

You wouldn't be able to revert back to a previous version of Android, @nmadic, it's not possible to do this.

Rooting your phone would void the warranty @Billal1, so I wouldn't advise doing this! Feedback is always welcome though, what you do dislike? Is there anything you're having trouble with?

I can tell you what i dislike, every single piece of this menu, too sweet for eyes, bottom fast buttons are pain in a**, whole menu, how can you take away so many options? Previous one was clear and and nicely organised when the new one is sooooo bad... i bet samsung could  not get any worse idea than that

@Billal1 

 

Rolling back your firmware can be achieved but has to be done with great care and some knowledge which can be learned by a Google Search.

 

Xdadevelopers is a good site to check out.

 

You shouldn't need to root your phone thus potentially void any remaining warranty.

 

Rolling back firmware is performed solely at the owners discretion.

 

I wish you all the best with this situation.

@Suddin - To Split Screen head over to your recent apps, then press and hold on the app icon and select 'Open in split screen view'.

Is there any other way to get samsung experience UI again? I looked into it and it seems like quite a long process. Granted, I probably will do it if its the only way.
