    Totally with everyone about the new update being horrible. It was hard to read the phone outside on a sunny day before, now it's not possible without shading it due to all the white. So many of the changes just make the phone less user friendly. Who ever approved this release needs to think about a career change. It would be nice if they could let us preview the update and then remove it if we would prefer to stay with the original. Hopefully they get enough complaints that it changes soon.

    HELP! I hate the new upgrade to my Note5!!! I'm a 63 yr. Old with no tech savvy. I thought lollipops were candy on a stick, and marshmallows were something you roasted in a campfire, but I can follow basic directions. 👍

    I also signed up just to complain about this evil upgrade. My s6 edge was working fine, then demanded an update. 15 minutes later nothing worked anymore : I can't play web video in youtube, fb ; chrome hangs often ; alarm clock doesn't sound AND incoming call doesn't ring. WTF ? Today I had 30% battery and for some reasons my phone got very hot and burnt it down in over 10 minutes, I guest due to some hidden apps.

    If it's a trick to get rid of s6 edge or earlier user, I must say it's very low.

    A Factory Data Reset will NOT revert you back to previous firmware. Only downloading and flashing the previous firmware for your model of Galaxy S5, CSC and Product codes, will do that. As per post #14 . However, a Factory Data Reset may clear up the issues that you are experiencing with your new firmware. Try wiping the cache partition first, before a Factory Data Restting. See, #1.3 of https://androidforums.com/threads/s5...-guide.892800/

    Hi guys, i got the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy s6 edge when i updated the software last night, it completely destroyed my phone, the same problems i too faced whatever the users above posted here. i have searched all over the internet as i wanted to restore back my phone badly. The below link which i am posting here is really a blessing in disguise, which made me to get back my phone to it's previous stage like before updating the software last night. i recovered every bit of my phone. I personally Thank the guy on this public platform who has uploaded the video how to restore the phone back .



    The video shows it as for Galaxy S7 & S7 edge, but it works fine with all other models too, mine is S6 edge and it worked perfect for me.

    So please go through the above link and restore your phones back.

    Thanking all the people who are in the forums & Youtube and all other social media who can help when others , when needed & their requirements to be sorted out

    @jkgogineni : I read comments on this vid and he said it does not downgrade to 6.0.1 ? Why does it work for you ?? I tried it myself and saw that current version and ini version has the same name so I guest it won't downgrade.

    So the only method is using Odin. I download firmware from sammobile, but the zip files corrrups every time. Do you know where to download safe files ?

    Hi - I have a Samsung S6, got the damn update last night, and I hate it. I downloaded Smart Switch on my PC, followed the process, but when I keyed in the Model number and hit Search, I got the following message:
    "Please check the model name and enter it"
    I repeated this 6 times - no luck.
    Do you have any suggestions please???

    Honestly, the new update has made the phone faster and more battery efficient. It's always the same every year anyway. People just aren't comfortable with change.

    Hey guys,
    I made this account to join on the thread because i have just had the "update" to 7.0 aswell myself. I am hugely disappointed and I hope android will come with some support on their screw-up. I hope they will come with an easy way to undo their update or come with an update similar to 6.0.

    You may be confused as the Samsung Galaxy S5 has never received Android 7.0, Nougat.

    I am also disappointed that people are bashing a great phone after a "crappy upgrade to Nougat" since there is no official upgrade to Android 7 on the Galaxy S5.

    EDIT The Canadian carrier minority variants of the Samsung Galaxy S Neo, G903W, have indeed been upgraded to Android 7, Nougat, in the last 10 days. See...

    My S5 has also upgraded to nougat this past weekend (I am Canadian) and words do not exist to sufficiently express how much I hate it. The lock screen clock format in particular is painful for me to look at, it is stacked format and I cannot find a way to change it back. Is there any way at all to undo this? Any solution for any other operating system?

    I'd just like to know who to complain to! Verizon says It's Samsung and they say its Google's fault. So who do you call, email or get in touch with to complain??

    Doesn't matter who you complain to. The phone isn't going to go back. You'd have to manually flash a copy of the old OS.
