Android 7.0 On My S7.


What a POS this update is. My phone was working great, now Gmail won't work, I didn't hear any phone calls today, plus it made all the text really small.

Other annoying things are you need to go through like 4 tabs to get to a contacts phone number. I need to open contacts, then scroll past the most used, unless it is one I need. Then click on the name, then click on the phone number to get to a secondary number, then tell it to pick the secondary number, then tell it if I want to make the secondary number the default or only use it once, then it finally calls. Before I just clicked the name and picked the number. This is also harder since it is in something like a number 4 sized font.

Plus now I have a bunch of crap on the always on screen. Before it would show if I missed a phone call or text. Easy to see at a glance. Now I have temp and three other things that I don't even know what they are. It looks to be alerts that I have another update and 2 other notifications, but doesn't say what notifications. Way too busy.

Also, the camera now has all sorts of swipey stuff to make it do things. Swipe to switch cameras, then push a really tiny button to look at modes.

Oh, and the best part? It seems that the dictionary is gone. It gives me a list of suggestions, but it is blank.

Avoid it if you can. It was working so well before. Now it works like crap and they made all the widgets cartoony.

Note 8 is supposed to launch next week.

Every upgrade is a downgrade.

Add another thing. My battery just went from 54 percent to 17 percent in about 20 minutes.
