I am eager to remove this update as well. I'm just about to do a factory reset, so I can get rid of this update. I am totally with you on wanting to switch back to iPhone. In the several years since I've switched to Android, I've NEVER regretted the switch... until this most recent update ruined my phone. I want to throw away my Note8... but will do a factory reset as one last shot. (Although I did learn my lesson from iPhone - if you don't do the updates, they slowly make your phone obsolete and unusable.)
Once a OS is installed and you do a reset it will reset back to a fresh verison of Pie thats how updates work when Pie was install it keep some of oreo and then rewrote everything else because you cant have two OS at the same time on your phone
I agree. Those bites. The notification is all different, the messages, the stupid changes at the bottom of the screen, the bar up top the fact that you can't night mode with a theme.... It changed some of the setting abilities and I'm not getting my messages and Facebook messages and snapchats until hours later... I really hate I-phone but I'm really tempted.
