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!!!
Better yet, we should be able to feel confident in the knowledge that Samsung is actively listening to us and that their software development does not take a dive down the ridiculous (as it has with this OneUI).. and if it has, they will make steps to put it right or at least to apese our dislike.
I totally agree! I've been using Samsung for years and recommended their phones to everyone I know for the look and ease of use.
After trying to change the look, without any success, am seriously considering the change to a different brand phone.
I understand the need for updates, but why change the look, especially to such a childish and cheap look!
If Samsung values our opinions, they would give us the option to keep the look we all love.
I'm afraid that it's more a matter of the customer being serviced. There seem to be more folks opting to not fight it and just be integrated into the BORG. The consumer will, from now on, take what big brother
It's not Android 9 either, it's one UI that samsung have done that's altered it so much.
Part of the problem is the majority like it, we're a relatively small number on here in relation to the amount of customers worldwide.
I just think it would've been nice to have more options like switch one handed mode on or off, have the recent apps vertical or horizontal, keep the pro mode for video.
Personally Android has always been about freedom of choice to set things up how you want them as well as having extra features you may or may not use.
