I just upgraded my S9 to the new Pie upgrade and I completely HATE the new look. The icons and especially the incoming/outcoming call display is HIDEOUS. I tried downloading some new themes to change the the overly colorful look but couldn't since it doesn't change the display of incoming/outgoing call.

 

The icons and the new look resemble to  cheap phones (no offense). But I purchased such an expensive phone because of its sharp and crisp looks and now after the update it has becoming extremely disturbing to even look at it.

 

I would really request Samsung to get this changed and go back to their old style of display or get a better one. This upgraded one is just horrible!!!

I agree, the new pie ugrade is horrible. The app icon bagas look stupid and ugly. I liked the old design of the icons which made the phone look better however, like the others said the new design looks childish. Furthermore, the new design of samsung apps are unappealing and make me not what to use them.  And make screen recording a thing.

Me too, and I've been buying Samsung Galaxy S phones for over 9 years. If this was supposed to push us into buying the new S10, it's going to backfire on Samsung.
Samsung was a product I really trusted, well I used to 😞

i also hate the new look.

feels like a down grade of the phone.

the person repsonsible for this update should be fired at least... if not more.

You won't be able to downgrade a new Android that ships with Pie


Pie may come with AVB 2.0, which disables booting with older rollback images. (Source: XDA)

Android Verified Boot (AVB) was present on some phones with Oreo. Google have implemented it to protect against outdated security patches. The company will also impose it on new phones with Pie out of the box. AVB may also make non-stock firmware building more difficult.

I agree! ! It is sooooo Ugly and cheap looking, like a toddlers phone. Themes and ikons from Samsung store cannot change the placement othef clock (now on the left) nor  ikons in app etc. So disappointed

In the United States, The Federal Trade Commission is the one to file complaints; https://www.ftc.gov/faq/consumer-protection/submit-consumer-complaint-ftc

I encourage every disgrundled customer to do this.

Hi there I too hate what they have done to the look of the note 9 with this update. I went to get the members app you recommended here but it says my phone is not compatible... thanks again Samsung for your well thought out commitment to your customer base... NOT!
