    yes, screen cycling on and off every 5 seconds. have tried it in safe mode and it still does the same thing.
    Sounds like factory reset

    that was a horrible mistake or i messed up. did the smart switch process then it upgraded android to 9.0, which i can't stand. is there any way to get my phone back to android 6?

    plus doing a hard reset didn't fix the problem at all. in fact, the bixby button somehow got stuck, which is weird because i never use it and the phone is always in a case.

    You can't go back to Andriod 6 ,it's not possible.

    Odin is Samsung official tool to flash firmwares , you can use it incase a OS update was corrupt .

    seems everything is fine. just hate that i lost the extra volume boost when making a call. the layout on the lock screen, plus how it lights up the phone every time i get a new message, plus the fact that while in messages i can't just swipe right to make a call right from the messages.

    Lol.. I know !
    I like the updates with newer things that come on board and security, but they still have one feature thats been on Samsung forever , keep screen on while looking at it , why couldn't they keep the others

    i've never had an issue with security on the phone, and i'm going on my 4th year of it.

    as far as leaving the screen on while looking at it, never used it.

    just doesn't make sense on why they wouldn't allow you to flash the phone back to the software you would like. i own the phone, it's mine, so i should be able to do with it what i want. can't hold them liable if something happens to it when i own the phone outright.

    I agree in the 10 years I've own android , never had a issue with security, but the way the world is now with security threats I want be protected with my banking apps and Data , I agree you should be able to do what you want with your phone after owning it but doesn't work that way , we don't own the software .

    that's what 2 step verification is for. heck, there's some that even use 3 step verification.

    i'm just frustrated at this whole mess!!!

    thanks for everything. if i had known it was as simple as the stupid bixby button being stuck, i would have never have bothered with the smart switch crap!!!
