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 know we shouldn't have to but theres a video on YouTube were you can downgrade stupid IU pie won't even let me copy the link and share it but just type in downgrade from pie to oreo
Yeh reinstall the oreo firmware, best read up lots first, makes sure you find the correct one. Needs to be suitable for your carrier and region.
Just got the update last night. Looks like an April Fool's joke. I've actually tried all of the accessibility features hoping one of them would make my screen readable, but those just make it worse. What fool put white text on everything? Texting is horrid with that weird turquoise and white text. The color scheme is completely disrupted. If I wanted my phone to work like an iPhone, I'd still own an iPhone. Seems really slow and non-responsive, too. I'd avoid this update but Samsung eventually forces updates after I try to ignore them enough times.
I gotta say though i must be the only one with better battery life, im on 13 hours and just hit 40%.
Now that is way better than i was getting before. I was having to charge in the van during the day, or as soon as i get in, im easily making it to bedtime before i plug in now.
I have an S9+. I would like to know if the camera will be restored to its original features. The current state of the camera after the recent android update is appalling, specifically pertaining to features that have been deleted for no reason, such as beauty mode. Please advise on whether we will get this back, as I am thinking of returning this phone and opting for another brand.
i wish we can go back to the old icon. The features is *****ing ugly. i just buy it a few days a go , now its asking for upgrade i just regret it and wasting money . i should just continue with an iphone. the icon is just *****ing ugly. i repeat!! *****ING UGLY!!!!
