The update is awesome,  but one thing that's a little annoying is, the volume slider is on the right side of the screen instead of the top. You can't adjust it or move it, or nothing. Wouldn't be Really a problem,  but being a gamer the volume slider gets in the way of the buttons. It would be nice if we can adjust or move it where we are comfortable with our custom type phone. I talked to support and they said it is stuck there until further notice.

The on-screen control cannot be repositioned or resized. Increasing/reducing the volume works but they were requests in beta for Samsung to allow users to move or reshape it which didn't make it to current UI 3.0

Only thing they said was that it will be reviewed and if it matches what Samsung has planned, it will be incorporated into the "stable" update which of course didn't happen. I just hope they listen to their customers. Lots of people have issues with this and other UI changes.

I don't like it on the side either. But I would really like to be able to change the color from grey to something else more visible. And bring the volume numbers back.

I personally hate the gray bar, the vertical slider bar and that the only way to change the location(and color) from left to right only vs the top of screen is to add yet another app from someone else. I just wish they would stop changing things that worked just fine. 

I'm on an S10 plus and my wife uses a Note 10 and hates it as much as I do. 

I also have noticed a "preaching to the choir" feeling about adding this as a response to your comments.

You know what works great for changing the volume? VLC. I love the way they handle changing the volume in that app.
