    Hi there.. my Samsung auto-updated with the following three installs which I find really difficult to live with.

    J510FNXXU2BQK6/J510FNBTU2BQK6/J510FNXXU2BQJ3

    The phone is awful, the favourites are alphabetically displayed rather than user prioritised, the message fonts and display is a mess, the apps display and the general appearance of the menus is a disaster.. I am so close to binning this off and returning to the 'Dark side'..

    Grateful for any advice..

    Unless the phone has an unlockable bootloader, it's usually not possible to 'downgrade' to older versions of firmware.

    You can't "downgrade" the version of Android. Updating is done by a piece of software you get over the air that's designed to replace older parts of the firmware with the newer equivalents. There's no "downdate" equivalent, you have to replace the updated firmware with the older version - in its entirety (which means backing everything up first, unless you maintain a complete backup at all times - which you should with any computer).

    With a Samsung, flashing new firmware is trivial - see [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN. The main danger is death by boredom. Then you have to restore everything you backed up (see Backing up an Android Device). (No bootloader unlocking is required.)
