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 absolutely hate the new upgrade.  1st thing I thought was a child's tablet. Things aren't where they once were. I had a beautiful background in my text message threads and now its generic and ugly. I hate teal bubbles . I just noticed I can no longer swipe text veryyyyyyyy upsetting. And everything about this update is HORRIBLE. I'm switching over to iPhone. I've had enough with galaxy. I wish I could get my old software back.

I dont like it either and none if mine work the way I want them to either.   I hate that my windows are no longer stacked, haven't swipe up to close.  Photos are all messed up.  My lock screen is ***** and I cant make changes to it.  Very unhappy customer!  Grrrrrrrr!  Bad design decisions, Samsung!

I'm lucky enough to have just got a brand new S9 still running Android 8.

 

But the Software Update notification is omnipresent and I'm afraid I'll upgrade by accident one day.

 

How can I get rid of the Software update notification?

Go into about phone, software, build number and hit it 7 times or so activate developer options. 

 

Then go into developer options and turn off auto update. 

You'll also want to go into software update and turn off all the auto stuff. 

I read to go into apps, show system apps and find upday and disable it too although not sure if it's needed. 

 

You can also turn off the notification for it but can't remember how off hand. 

 

You still get it when you pull down the notification up top but it won't update by itself.
