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 was the last straw, i am selling my s9 and go to google pixel.
Srew bixby and this cheap, ugly and co fusing update.
Why have a digital navigation bar of it can't be removed? Thus just makes it part of the chinbar(might aswell make it black so it matches the frame).
I agree 100%. And Samsung take no responsibility and could care less how unhappy everyone is. When I call their answer is to wait until the next update but they can not say if or when it will happen and if it will correct any of our complaints. They got our money (in my case almost a thousand) and now they don't care if we are unhappy with our phones.
Turn off lift to wake and lift to ear auto calling. You can try that,. I don't have those problems, my beef is the ***** camera software we have been forced with 🙄
I went into the system apps and turned off every option I could under the Bixby name, revoked all permissions and disabled what I could. I haven’t looked into rooting the phone and removing anything even remotely connected to Bixby, but that is a distinct possibility in the near future.
I totally agree. My note just updated last night, and the more I mess with it today, the more I dislike it. My text messaging is now garbage. When I long press on a message to delete it, the option box pops up and I suppose the text is white along thither the box...I cant see any options!! The people I've texted are listed by the first letter and the number I dont have saved are indistinguishable from each other...this sucks
I hate the update but even more than that I hate Samsung attitude about the update. Which when I complained was to just live with it until the next update (there is no time frame) which may or may not fix it. Proof that once they got our money for our expensive phones they could care less whether were happy with them.
I just got the Note 9 a few days ago and I am honestly looking inro how to remove it. The app icons looks like something someone drom an elementary did it. My edge panel doesn't work properly, all the keys are at the bottom of the screen instead of the top. The messages finctiof is so basic, I want to screen. Instead of tapping an alarm to stop, now you have swipe, what a pain. Whoever did this upgrade, needs to go on vacation and come back and redo it. Worse upgrade ever!
This update is incredibly bad. It looks cheaply made and I really hope they change it back to the original. Please do something about it. Makes me want to throw this phone away.
I also think that this update was a million steps back. Hate navigatimg this ****! Magnifier no longer works just crashes. Can't shut down back ground apps as mentioned used to be abke to close the ones you wanted too now ut all ir none. Camera is a joke to try and figure out. Still waitimg to see what else this update screwed. Can you still buy the old UI Back?
Or are we permanently screwed. Samsung Reveiws raved about this Juvinile looking UI..... REALLY? Did they ask 5 year olds?
I dont think one adult would say this UI and operatimg changes are a improvement by any strech l would have begged them to fire the ass that made this.
