HATE THE UPDATE!  KILLING MY BATTERY IN NOTE8

 

TERRIBLE!!!!


so.... have you tried a factory reset?  How much time have you given for the update to settle in?  You do know that after an update, every app on your phone has to reconfigure, update, rebuild all over again.  Sometimes a reset will improve your battery life greatly.  After my update, I gave it a few days, backed up everything on the Cloud and also did a backup to my computer using Smart Switch as a safety and did a factory reset Haven't had a battery problem since.

I have no problem with the colors.  Once I found the night mode, everything was perfectly clear.  If you are running a theme that you got when you were on oreo, you're going to have to turn it off and download one that was designed for the new OS.  Otherwise, it's going to look bad.

It's been a while since someone was complaining about the update again.  So what is your main complaint and we'll see what can be fixed on it.  So lets hit the high points.  

  1. The biggest complaints have been about the visibility.  Can't see the contacts due to white/gray font on a white/gray background.  This is due to a theme that wasn't designed for One UI.  If  you have a theme that you were using prior to the update, it more than likely will not work on One UI.  Turn the theme off.  Contact the theme designer and see if they have one that is designed for this OS.  
  2. Pocket Dialing.  This is something that is easily fixed with Settings.  (Which will solve a lot of other problems.)  Pocket dialing is when you text someone, put the phone in your pocket and the phone dials them.  With the update, this feature gets turned back on.  Simply turn it off.  Settings > Advanced Features > Motions and Gestures > Direct Call.  Turn this off.  
  3. Phone keeps opening up apps in your pocket.  Go to Settings > Display > Accidental Touch protection.  Turn this on.  This will deactivate the screen when it's in your pocket to prevent accidental app activation while in  your pocket
  4. Camera Buzzing while zooming causing blurry images.  This doesn't appear to be connected to the OS, but more of a mechanical error.  It has been discussed in depth elsewhere on this forum.  
  5. Edge Lighting not working properly.  Settings > Display > Edge Screen > Edge lighting on > Set when to turn it on, color, width, style and then select which apps you want to activate your edge lighting.
  6. Icons.  Simple fix.  If you don't like the built in icons, get a icon package and select your own.  
  7. And the MAJOR Crime...  of moving the clock to the left side instead of the right.  1.1 inches over.  (Horrors)  Go to the Galaxy store and download Good Lock 2019 and move it where  you want.  Left, Right, middle or gone totally.  
  8. Don't like the navigation bar at the bottom?  Want it to go away unless you need it?  Turn it off and use Gestures.  Set it up on mine and I love it.  Never have that bar appear again.  Go to Settings > Display > Navigation bar > Select Gestures or use the buttons.  Want to rearrainge them?  Easy.  I use the gestures and then I scrolled down to turn on Gesture Hints.
  9. The inability to set a background in the Message app.  Agreed, this is a bug.  The best we can come up with for now it to use Night  Mode (Settings > Display > Night Mode) or find a theme that covers that.  Again, just make sure it is designed for One UI.

These are some of the common complaints.  So expand a bit please.  Tell us what you hate and we'll see what can be done to fix your complaint.  There are a bunch of us here that would like to help, but we do need some specifics.  And no, it ain't perfect by any stretch of the imagination.  But a lot of it can be fixed/adjusted quite easily.

I soo despite this update!!! I can't  see any of my contacts, i thought it was something that needed to be done in  the settings to see but it isnt. Everything is all white in the contacts and in the text messages.  This random giant black space hovering above saved messages is redundant. This is giving me anxiety because i cannot do my day to day tasks without all the hinderances. Even the standard calendar doesnt fully load, you cant even see the dates. I never liked samsung and was always an LG person but i thought hey this note 9 looks promising let me give it a shot. Its been pretty cool, outside of the text messaging ive always hated the extra steps you have to take just to send a simple text is unnerving, up until now. I am unhappy that I cannot revert  this update.  Frustrated

Ok. If you don't want to fix your settings, and customize your phone, go for it.
