- I despise the new apps layout. I liked that we had the rotary view option before. Took up a lot less space and was more visually appealing. You could also see more apps at once and not feel overwhelmed by the oversized icons. Even the list view was better than what it has now.
- I also very much hate the change in the Samsung Health widget. Where before, the four trackers matched up with the hours on a clock, now, it's four corners. It was a more balanced look before, and again, overcrowding with the oversized icons. It overstimulates me and not in a good way.
- I would also like to add that the colors are not true to tone between the phone and the watch. The purples show up too pink on the phone, and the indigos are too blue on the watch. I've also noticed that the dark purple circle in customization doesn't match the preview or the watch. I haven't checked too many other colors, as I've just been trying to replicate what was on my previous watch as best as I can.
- Also the button reversal? Super irritating. I keep trying to just go back by hitting the top button, because that's the back button on my Active2, but it takes me to the home screen, which is ridiculously frustrating. Active2 was also better in that the power button and back button were different shapes, allowing it to be even easier to differentiate.
- Another problem with the Watch6, though, is that the home screen is darker than the other screens. If you have a deep color for your clock on a black background, it's hard to see, and then it feels like you're blinded by the brightness of the other widgets, despite them also having black backgrounds.
- I also hate that I can't remove or disable/hide apps that I have no intention of using on my watch, such as weather and Bixby. I use Google Assistant on my phone. I don't want Bixby, and I rarely use the weather on my phone either. At that point, I now have multiple useless apps taking up space on my watch. And even if they have to be on the watch, they shouldn't have to be visible. The Active2 allowed hidden apps.
- And if you can change a Bixby button into a power button on a phone, I see no reason why we shouldn't have the option to switch which button is the power/home and which one is the back button.
This isn't meant to be rude, I swear, but I know how to take the screenshot.
My point was that there wasn't much use for that outside of sending a location (like a picture of your map) or sending a picture of a watch glitch. I don't use my watch to go on the internet, so it's not a feature that I find beneficial at all. 🤷:female_sign: like, it may be a cool feature, but its not something that I find actual purpose/usefulness in.
Hopefully if we can get enough people to show support we can get them to add the ability to swap the buttons.
