This is not a solution. Double clicking is not the same as disabling. Nor is it just as good. It is at best "the best you can do". Which is not much better than nothing.
we dont want to double tap it. We want it completely disabled. we paid for the phone we should have the capability to change/add/disable ANY feature on them we wish. Only a very small percentage of users actually like this garbage forced assistant. Know what i love, buying a product then being told what i can and cannot do with it
This is the worst. I waited years to save up and buy a new phone - the S9. I was so excited, as I had liked my previous phone from the series. A fair life this that cannot be disabled but is so easy to trigger accidentally? That's awful. It's not even a good virtual assistant. I may go back to apple.
This is not a solution. What Samsung needs to understand is that users are not necessarily asking for fixing the accidental touch issue.. user simply want to GET RID OF BIXBY.
I'm back with a S9+ and this is NOT a solution. The problem is the button location opposite the lock button. I cannot use the lock button without leveraging the bixby button (unless I bring my other hand in, which isn't always available.
Why not launch bixby with a long or other press of the standard buttons?
Please have another update to disable or get rid of
Bixby. I hate that whenever I touch my phone it comes on wanting me to update. So I did thinkingI could disable it, but no it is worse. I uninstalled update for Bixby and now it keeps wanting me to update and I can't stop it. Please let me have a choice to use it or not. I just paid off my phone so I really don't want to buy another brand, but I will if I have to.
Useless, I will add my voice to the chorus of dissent. If you force a Stupid, inconvenient feature like the Bixby, you lose customers. Next device Wii be Pixel. Future devices will not be Samsung. I'm sure Samsung does not care, but there's my feedback.
OOOOR! Ya'll could just let us turn off the stupid button entirely?????? Or better yet remap it to what we actually want a dedicated button for. I mean seriously have you seen Bixby's reviews? Are y'all not getting the message. 90% of people HATE it and want it gone. Face it Bixby has flopped and ditch it before it keeps hurting Samsung's rep.
After Samsung has spent Millions and millions of dollars on Bixby
How many people do you think you have made mad because of Bixby "
People continue to ask about wanting Bixby gone.
But what does Samsung Do.
Keep digging a hole deeper and deeper because you have spend so much money and incorporated Bixby in your phone.
If I has the money to buy Samsung,
The very 1st person to loose their job is the people that like Bixby.
Samsung don't seem to understand and can't hear.
We DON'T Like or want Bixby
We want to use Google
Now how hard was that.
Can't wait til more and more people stop buying Samsung phones because some Genius at Samsung likes and loves Bixby
And what are we told.
Make the Bixby button do something else.
How about having a Way the Bixby is totally removed from everything on the Samsung Phones.
Oh. I know the folks at the Big Round table has spoken.
We are not removing Bixby.
They would be escorted off the property.
They have bad decision making and DO NOT LISTEN TO THEIR CUSTOMERS .
Samsung has become too big of a company
