Just got the new update for my Samsung S8 and quite frankly, I hate it. I feel as though Samsung doesn't want us to be able to personalize our phones for us, to individualize it. I don't want my phone to be just like the next person's. And quite frankly the new update is throwing some hard iPhone vibes. Don't get me wrong, when I first opened my phone, I enjoyed it, but as I started going through it, I liked it less and less. Too bad there isn't a back button for updates. I would be smashing that back button so fast.
Why can't I personalize Messages anymore? I genuinely hate the hospital white theme and I will NOT download themes from the galaxy store. I like looking at them, I think they're nice; on someone else's phone, not mine. I like personal themes for myself, my lockscreen is my latest trip, my home screen is of my late dog, and messages used to be me and my bf.
I know the changes that I'm most upset with are small in comparison to all of the changes that happened with the update but they're big to me. And with them being so small, why change it? If I wanted a simpleton phone with very little personalization, I would've gone with iPhone, and now with this update, we're already half way there...
Right?! Its great that Samsung supports this "art form" but I truly believe that those who will use it, do and those who don't, won't. And will eventually get so fed up and do away with their Samsung phone.
