Why did they update this? Who asked for them to change the navigation bar gesture settings? Before you could just swipe up for the navigation bar gestures, up for home, up for back, up for all apps. 

 
 
Now they changed that to swiping left and right for back and all apps and up from home. The problem with that is swiping left on my phone while in an app like Facebook now confuses my phone and it doesn't know if I want to go back or swipe into a whole other area of the app I'm in. Also it doesn't even work good. I swipe right for back and it just closes everything. Lol I swipe left for all apps and it takes me to the home screen. This update sucks so bad. Tried to contact customer care and the guy tells me to reset app preferences. Now all my apps want me to update the settings when I open them . 
 
He tried to take remote control to reset my entire device smh

I am more than frustrated that Samsung moved in the direction of copying Apple with the gestures. My phone went thru an update and now all my gesture settings and preferences are gone. You already had gestures and hidden buttons, long before Apple, why change them? Why when I hide the navigation bar does it now look like apple. I don't need the long grey bar at the bottom. Bring back the way it was. Right bottom is hidden back when swiping up, middle swipe up is home page, and left bottom swipe up is all open apps. It worked better and easier than currently. I literally can't get my finger close to the right side of screen to swipe in apps like tiktok, etc. Google maps etc. And I can't change it back? Why did you get rid of a long standing feature just to copy another company? I hate it and I hope you all quickly course correct

100% agree with you, I hate it so much. And it's done for absolutely no reason at all. Bring back the old hidden gestures Samsung.
