  3. Though it may be quicker, my notifications have ceased to notificate. My flashing message light has not been seen since before the update, not only that but the vibrate also has stopped working. I’ve shut off my phone 3 times, checked my settings and still – they arent working. I also have this weird black line on the bottom right of my screen now.

  4. I downloaded it and somethings were nice. However, the update came with some Samsung theme manager, which just eliminated several options for home and lock and lock screen, and replaced it with a pay option instead. I used to have my lock screen photos cycle each time the phone was locked. I now cannot do that. Verizon Samsung G7 Edge.

  7. App loading and performance have degraded significantly since the update. I deleted unused apps and cleared up about 3GB of space and it hasn’t improved. It feels like I am using a 4 year old phone. When I restart it removes some apps from the home screen. I would really like a way to roll this back.
