There's so much profanity I have for this new update. Samsung, you can update software securities and such without changing the way your phone looks. I understand the need for security updates, BUT LEAVE THE WAY MY PHONE LOOKS ALONE! P L E A S E... make an option for people that don't want to change looks of their phones. This new look is pathetic. Please go back, or let us choose!!!
How can I LOVE this comment? I completely 100% agree. The icons that pop up under the CLOSE ALL menu are terribly placed as well. Also, my audio controls for my apps messed up after the update and I cannot hear what's playing at mid level when the phone is right in my hand! I was instructed to factory reset the phone which I did which didn't change the sound but lost all my customization. And it looks like a 5 year old's phone! No telling what else... Really disappointed with Samsung and I've been a loyal user but I don't know this time....
Dear Android 9.0 PIE,
I absolutely hate you. You add no aesthetic value, efficiency, or increased productivity potential to my phone. I got a 9+ because of the larger battery capacity... to escape the perils of the battery drain... and now my phone drains like no tomorrow. I cannot take it anymore, we are done. Good riddance!
I have literally just joined the community so that I can make the exact same complaint! The icons look like something from a childs toy tablet. And the way you have rearranged the way you view all/close all is horrendous! Put it back to how it was or at least LET US CHOOSE! Not impressed!
1. Yes of course I read the full update specs and tried to find a way to change the icon IMAGE not just the 'frame'. Personally I dislike the childish looking icons but if you are much happier now, lucky you.
2. Have you managed to find a 'pack' to fix the way the 'recents' are now listed side by side instead of on top of each other? What about the massive 'you have no unread messages' that wastes 30% page space? Or the numerous other new 'features' I keep coming across? Just how many 'packs' should we run off and look for and install to undo updates we don't like?
3. Feedback is an essential part of any business, including negative feedback, how do we suppose Samsung is to know if we all lie down and roll over?
@userACU56CSiEv the great thing about Android is the amazing customization it offers compared to iPhones especially. I've been using Nova Launcher for years to customize my UI and haven't had any issues. All my devices always look exactly how I want them to, whether that be on Nougat, Oreo, or Pie. Good Lock 2018 (by Samsung) also offers huge amounts of customization to the navbar, recent apps, notification panels, and more.
I can't see any of my contacts! AT ALL! They are there, but it's like white letters on a white screen! Everything is terribly placed, and icons look stupid. All my settings were set to factory default. I really liked my S9 the way it was! Now I hate it! Stupid updates wre the reason i didn't buy another iPhone.
