Apps not working or gone. Little things like the photo app changed and some features just gone. My son is techy and paid big for his Google and he but I'm not spending that much on a dang cell phone. No more. I'm out Same here. I am more than fed up with this Samsung situation. My wifi just randomly turns itself off. My screen goes totally black at least once or twice a day, you cannot see the settings drop-down menu, so I spend so much time trying to find the control for the screen brightness. It's usually pretty much on zero, and I have to just swipe and try, hoping to hit the control. I have to take my setting OFF automatic adjustment several times a day because this phone keeps setting itself to that setting, even though I have it off. I missed a call the other day because my black screen showed nothing. I heard the phone ringing. About 15 minutes later, after I had to have my grandson come try to find the screen brightness control, I could see that I had missed a call from my Dad's doctor. I had been waiting on that call, but no way to answer. Does anyone know anything about LG phones? Amazon has a Prime members' price cut on an LG style 4, unlocked, 32G...$90.00 off, making it $159.00. It has good reviews, but I have only ever bought phones from my carrier. I am just sick and tired of paying right at $1,000.00 for phones. I take pictures, read online, play solitaire, text and make phone calls, and watch YouTube . So I need good call sound quality and decent speakers. The phone some of you mentioned that starts with an H...the China made phone that our country banned...I had read about it before and it sounded promising. Wonder what the odds are of Trump relenting? I am using my S8+, but I absolutely hate it! I loved it until March, when the system update that I was ignoring, finally just took over and installed itself and ruined my phone. My Samsung days are over. I have only had one iPhone, years ago, and wasn't crazy about it, but I may give it another try. As expensive as Galaxy phones are now, the iPhone really isn't all that much higher. Thanks for screwing up a good phone, Samsung. Maybe iPhone would just be better & more secure all the way around. If Samsung cared about their customers, they would have fixed these things already.

This was a response to someone who commented about how they accidentally make phone calls all the time when in messages. Besides that I hate how this update looks and absolutely hate the camera now, I have other problems that I haven't seen listed. 1. My phone frequently goes totally black and I take so long just guessing at where the brightness control bar is to try to make the screen readable. I went to the settings on the brightness control and checked to put control bar on top and unchecked adaptive brightness. But these get changed back several times a day. 2. My phone now randomly just turns wifi off. I have to continually check to make sure wifi is on. 3. My screen randomly rotates now and it didn't before. I have it set to not rotate. Have to turn on screen rotate to get it back to portrait instead of landscape. 4. Often when I pick up my phone, YouTube videos randomly start playing which is annoying. I do subscribe to some posters there, but I NEVER had this problem before. I don't even have YouTube open when this happens, but apparently the slightest touch in the wrong place activates the video from a notification. I absolutely hate this update. I hate my phone now. I have an S8+, and am longing for the perfection of my old Galaxy S4!!
