    Does this only work with TouchWiz?

    I'm running Nova Prime and it's not working. Or is it a feature I have to turn on?

    Their is so much more to this update other than a security update and double tap to hide the nav bar. I will list one big change. The facial recognition has been enhanced to be a lot faster. Read the whole update details. Google verizon advanced software updates, click on your device and read the full fixes and enhancements.

    No offense but TouchWiz is dead, the current ui is called the Samsung experience, we are running version 8.1 with the impending update to either 7.1.1 or 8.0 our devices will be updated to Samsung experience 8.5 with the same enhancements as the note 8. As for your launcher it can and will interrupt some aspects of the updates due to the fact you have changed the defacto UI and launcher. The nav bar is part of the original UI but the other enhancements like the improvements to the speed of the facial recognition will not be affected, nor will the knox update or any other non aesthetic feature. I live with the stock UI for this reason alone, and yes you can change the nav bar icons to suit your liking moving them in settings, thats for all the damn people complaining about the icons being backwards from their likening. Have a fantastic night...

    Anyone else noticed crackly and distorted bluetooth music playback after this update? I did the update while at work, got in my car to go home and immediately notice that the audio is all crackly and distorted. Rebooted the phone, made no difference. This is with Tidal and Blackplayer sending bluetooth audio to the stock head unit in my Subaru. It was fine before, now it's very obviously crackly and distorted. Bluetooth volume level also seems to have no effect on this.

    Maybe NVM, I just went out to my car and tried it again and now it seems fine. Might have been a glitch I guess. IDK

    Their is a small white dot at the far left of the nav bar, tap on it twice the nav bar will disappear, if you need the nav bar swipe up from the bottom and the nav bar will appear for a limited time so you can navigate without the risk of screen burn. If you want your nav bar back simply double tap the dot again and it will enable full time nav bar. Easy peasy.

    You would be surprised, I have been called names that you cant believe, im not a liberal or a conservative im a man that believes that our nation has been blessed with a abundance of good fortune, I am a Christian but cast no disparaging words towards any other religion, we are all creations of god no matter what religion you seek as you guiding light. I care not for mal talk about anyone color creed religion sexual orientation, we are all beautiful. I am a example of a Marine that cares not for death but wishes for peace. Peace may not be obtainable in its entirety but through war brings peace and if god should take me home I have no regrets or hatred in my heart, my job is hard I often wonder what if I did not kill that man? Could I have saved him with words or guidance from a higher power, but their is no time for decisions like that. My job is to keep the innocent innocent and to free the in slaved. I am a Force Recon Marine, im not your normal kill devil dog, after 17 years I am a man of good will and faith in all, I often ponder if my wife and children are proud of me. My only hope is to show the people that think all we do is kill that they know so little. So thank you for your kind words and god bless you, I will do my best to make you and every American proud. Dont listen to the msm potus speaks in kindergarten terms I speak without pride or the need to be the news highlight. I will come home, I will give my daughter away at her wedding. I will be Good to go

    Yes, you have to enable this option in navigation bar settings, then double tap the little dot to hide or show the navbar.
