Dear Developers Please STOP changing Icons and Apperance of Applications. It's my Android software, not yours. It's my phone, not yours. If you change the design on the next update without option to keep the same design and layout, I will take legal actions against SAMSUNG. You can keep changing your personal phones whatever you like, but NOT MINE! And if you wondering is your software that is NOT TRUE. You designed software and you sold it with phone. This is how you making money. You have NOT LEAGAL RIGHTS to do any changes like appearance and setting to my phone! Let children play on the playground not with somebody's software!

1. Android is owned by Google.

2. Google is responsible for the software

3. It is not your software, it is under licence.

4. You think you can be exempt from this? You can't.

5. No lawyer would give you the time of day to pursue this due to your misunderstanding of how things work.

Sorry about the tone but it reflects your attitude.

Hi,
With any system update
It lists what's installed with
The update before you install it giving you the details of what's installed with the update there are always going to be possible fixes that may involve the display if a known issue

You do have the option not to update your device if you really don't want to.
Your points would be better directed at Google who send the software updates out.
Samsung build on top of this the One UI software to add all the features etc.
Software is always changing and developing to improve the user experience.
Why don't you try using Samsung GoodLock to customise your phone the way you want.
That way you can still get the software and Security updates and keep your settings how you like them

@richardlangsk  The situation is pretty much as others have described and unfortunately  you only have a licence for the software.   I am afraid you are somewhat misguided, unless you are just having a rant for your own satisfaction. As @Glenntech  as mentioned customisation is possible and Good lock gives you a few few options.  Some detail here https://www.androidauthority.com/samsung-good-lock-1079882/   other Android apps mentioned in this article https://www.androidheadlines.com/best-android-customization-apps 

Software is always developing and others like design changes, in any case Google has  a lot of power. Samsung does give you  some enhancements, for the better in my view.

 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
