Now, I know there might be some people out there that are riveted by this new update and how it has changed just about everything. However, I am not part of that group and am sour towards the update. My biggest issue is with the Message application. Before the update, I was able to customize my text messages. By that I mean I was able to add a background to the conversations I had going on with other contacts. Why is this important to me? Because I am one of the individuals who has painfully sensitive eyes. Before the update, I had my text messsage set with a dark background, a night sky, because that is the only thing my eyes could handle. I have searched my entire phone and I cannot find a way to do this after the new update. I am stuck with the all white background for everyone coupled with the bright teal text bubbles. It is quite literally, painful for me to use the Message app. The white is too intense for my eyes. Yes I can just dim my birghtness if I so need it, but then I cannot see anything else on my phone. Sure I can just get a whole new phone and toss away the Samsung, but money is not a leisure I have. I hope everyone else's suggestions get listened to, and I really hope I can customize my text messages again because it is ridiculous that I can't; especially with my eye sensitivity.
