This new update literally sucks

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...

Yes this update definitely sucks. It turned my very classy (and expensive) Note 8 and managed to make it look like a cheap toy.and Samsung takes no responsibility for it simply saying that we need to wait for the next update. It's Samsung wants to keep my business it needs to come out before the next iPhone does.

I totally agree!!!!

 

If I wanted an iPhone I would have bought one.

 

They need to be able to revert back to the previous version

I'm thinking this update is so bad I'm thinking to switch back to iPhone.

It feel like bunch of developers just use banaids to cover or satisfy users request for new features. lots of my apps stop working... So frustrating... 😞

I totally agree, I couldn't believe what they have done. Everything was fine but now all that was good is butchered. Split screen is no longer possible and my browser tabs seem to disappear on its own. It's like they used the previous extreme battery saving interface and now transfered it into regular mode. It feels all black and white with the bare basics. Wtf Samsung.

3 TVs in my home are Samsung because of my experience with my Samsung cell phones. I have a s9 and I believe it is my 3rd Samsung cell phone. The latest update with my Samsung s9 is awful. I hate it and do not understand why Samsung would think this would be an advantage/upgrade to their users. Someone at Samsung had their head up someone's ****.....ooops, sorry or did not do a customer marketing research before enacting this upgrade. 

Really Samsung! I have experienced better and why I always DID buy Samsung....after this latest upgrade, I may have to rethink my future purchases.

Just found out how to split screen! Hit your button for the recent apps and when you're on an app, long press on the apps icon at the top and it gives a drop down menu for split screen

I totally agree, I even registered in order to write here. I am so disappointed with this new Android. The update totally screwed my notifications.

I stoped getting status bar notifications for both Viber, Messenger, and Gmail.
I have not figured out what is the behavior for the rest of my applications.

It is totally unacceptable, because this makes my use of the phone absolutely terrible. I get led indicator, but i have to go and search every time through all of my apps to find which one has a notification.

It used to be a great phone when i bought it , but this totally messed up everything, which is very disappointing for a flagship device
If this is not fixed, i would thing twice before ever buying a samsung phone again.

I loved my phone Note 9 and I loved the way it worked and feel with Oreo, I was also looking forward for this new One UI update mostly because the night mode, but it just ruined my phone: recent apps style is bad and i don't know why they didn't keep the LIST VIEW option which is perfect for a phone that can have 20+ apps open in the background, actual implementation is just useless;
I also don't like how they changed the camera app and the fact that i can't choose to record in 30fps or 60fps anymore;

Nav bar is also ruined, I get that they wanted to add the gestures but why removing the old perfectly working staff like hiding the bar or changing the colors of the bar;

And the worst of  all is that after the update my very expensive Clear view Smart cover turned into a  not Clear and definetly not smart  very expensive regular flip case.

It really does suck. I hate the new feature to swiping away apps. It's like apple. I have an android for a reason you know? And whenever I make a phone call it automatically hangs up after like 15 to 20 seconds and also randomly calls people in my contact list. Never had the problem until this new update. Its garbage.

Search your settings for "direct call" and shut it off. I haven't had the problem since.

I can understand everyone hating on the new update. But the Samsung skin over stock android had not really evolved from the Galaxy S2
No one likes change I just got the update this week. I had to put a lot of work into getting it back to the set up I liked. Alot of things needed permission set-up again. Accounts and sync. I do miss a couple of things but once I got my S8 running back to how I had it before I don't mind the new "one UI"
Rooting a phone is down to preference but I have not rooted my phone in a few years now as I have not needed to.
A warning if you root a Samsung and trip KNOX you can not reset the efuse. Banking and NFC payment options stop working. Unless you need something specific which requires root then be careful.
You can just get a launcher and revert to the old style UI
I not saying people are wrong to be annoyed but give it a try.
The guy with the calling issues turn off the setting that calls and answers by lifting the phone to your ear

Agree I downloaded this page so I can see what others are saying. They need to change it back immediately. You'd think they are monitoring this page right ?

Since this latest update I'm unable to use certain apps, it is affecting the the use other apps including calendar, Google maps, Waze and trainline, all of which I use heavily in my work. Why do I suddenly lose gps when on a call???
