I am so angry, I got my S9 literally only a couple of weeks ago, upgraded from an S6, and this update literally makes me want to go back to my S6... everything new about this update is so wrong. I hate the new way the recents are set out, swiping up is so annoying why has that changed, literally nothing was wrong with it before. I hate that the time at the top is on the left now. The notifications on the lock screen are really annoying now, you have to tap the thing to actually see them. I've also noticed that all the passwords that were saved with my fingerprint aren't working anymore, also there is no option for using fingerprint to get onto secret mode on Samsung internet anymore. This new update is the worst Samsung have ever done. I wish they would just revert back to the last update because this one is so cheap looking. Another thing is I quite liked getting rid of the buttons at the bottom and having to swipe up to see them, I don't understand why that's not a possibility anymore. Not to mention you can't turn off the Bixby button anymore, only to one press or two. This update has legitimately ruined my day...
Hi Samsung, I'm tasting (taste) Xiaomi now which has cleaner UI (MIUI oooooeeeeooooeeeooooeeeeoooo). Samsung now, i use as backup phone. Basically I hate the thick fonts and icons on notification shade.. All those colourful and cheap new set of icons - Jony Ive must be laughing. GoodLock 2018 becomes asthecticaly ugly in GoodLock 2019.. Design of RecentApps why must follow iphone.. Lucky I can change w GoodLock..
Almost every day I have discovered something else that I now despise about this phone with the new update. It is now ridiculously difficult to figure out some settings. Samsung has completely convinced me that I will never buy another Samsung phone, and I had planned to assign my current phone to my boy and get a new S10. Not any more, no way.
One more thing that totally sucks; in two years I never had to sign in to my Samsung account for anything. Now, I can't get rid of it. A pop up tells me to sign in multiple times a day, and I can't figure out how to turn it off. Screw you Samsung.
I agree. I think we should do something. Can we sue the company? Samsung, you have to stop with your terrible updates!!! Every time we get new updates, its even worse!! You have to work on your mkt for the new Galaxy unstead of making our S9 a puece of rubbish...
I agree. This was a poorly thought out upgrade. Not intuitive, much more difficult to use and is unstable. All I can say is that the old user face was much better and the Samsung software engineers must have been board or trying to justify their paycheck. After this latest "abortion" I would consider getting new engineers.
I now hate my phone. The only thing good about it is that no matter how hard I throw it on the ground in anger the dang thing won't break. Samsung, leave my phone alone! The updates are not better! I don't want them and when I am trying to use my phone I sure as heck don't want your on screen messages to tell me about the new features - that I did not ask for. I I used to love my Samsung phone and now I hate it. Serioulsy.
Samsung health app, which i use quite often, is not as accurate as it was! I loved it, it worked perfectly, but now it randomly auto pauses while i run. I turned auto pause off, but now i have to pause it manually when i stop for a while, and i find it pretty annoying. Btw, i haven't updated it since i unfortunately switched from Oreo to Pie because i think new update sucks like a whole Pie/OneUI s***! Update might solve this (it's a big question) but then UI would be an issue. *****, i have to search for a better app 😞
The update MORE than sucks! My battery went from lasting all day and then some to draining in 2 hours!
Samsung isn't doing anything about it, hell no, they got paid so they're moving on to the Note 10, Note 11, Note 1,000.
I hate to say it but I'm going to pull the trigger, I have 4 lines and my daughter just got the new iPhone, it's like night and day. I've always been loyal to Samsung but they really don't give a rat's ass.........................................GOODBYE SAMJUNK................HELLO APPLE! Trust me, do it, you won't be disappointed!
This update is pitiful. My swype wont work, I cant see anything because I cant do the stinking bright white background, everything is off from where it should be and I am tired of trying to fix it, find it. I never had an iphone but this is seriously making me think of taking the plunge on one. This is poor service. This update is just trash.
Samsung has finally did it they have pushed me over the edge I no longer enjoy my Samsung Note 9 phone I did not purchase this phone so Samsung couldn't watch my every move. Samsung will not allow me to turn off location service camera service microphone service and some other services in there Samsung app they have now moved on to spying on us this is horrible. I have recently contacted Samsung and they would not allow me to turn off these apps in the Samsung apps location microphone and they even want to look at my photos. When I confronted them they said it is in there private policy that has been updated to meet Samsung's demands. This has happened in there new update they have forced upon all of us Samsung phone users. I will not give you the option to shut any of these services off. My reply to that is finally to go with Apple phones. So there you have it Samsung 5 brand new Apple phones.
