    Since the update on 3/22 I have had a horrible issues!! Games removed everything is slow or cannot work. Drains my battery extremely fast. I unplug at 100% and as soon as I unplug its down to 93%, within 2 hours I'm at 45%. It's horrible. The newest and supposedly "great" updates suck and now using my phone is horrible!! I've always enjoyed Samsung, tablets, phone, laptops etc. However after updates I want to get rid of ALL my Samsung and reconsider Apple. This is the worst updates to date.

    apk The latest update broke compatibility with their GoodLock Systems, at least, that's my assumption, because the page-edit functionality leads to a immediate crash. The potential is there, and Samsung is using it half-assed. Give us a more in-depth Grid Layout System like with Home Up, give us custom Play Store Icon Pack Support, hide the names on the home screen. The fundementals are all there and Home Up even uses some of it! Just include it in the default app already!

    apk for lollipop Terrible performance since latest update!!! Having experienced slow performance, draining of data with no apparent cause and irritating, unwanted pop-ups, following Samsung advice this app looked to be the cause. On investigating, other reviews seem to confirm my suspicions. Samsung you must fix this! It's a terrible update which has in no way improved performance but in fact seriously hinders it!!! 😡

    download Why is this app causing spam ad pop ups everytime I open my Galaxy S8 and multiple times as I try to use various areas of my phone? I have had this phone for over 3 years and this is the first time this has happened. Following the guidance on the Samsung community page, I have discovered this app to be the most recently active immediately following the ad pop ups. Confirming, along with other customer reviews this to be the reason. What is the resolution?

    descargar Samsung apps and products is always great. Over all I uses Samsung because it also provides apps contents that others doesn't provides, it gives a lot more options and accessories that no one else offers that's easier too use. after using it for awhile I understand that all of Samsung's apps and products are the best because of their good standards, they doesn't have too keep updating their apps as much as some. Many people doesn't mind changes but not too many.

    I was reading all these reviews since I've also been getting annoying random pop-up ads over the past couple of weeks and was on the verge of switching to a new phone. I thought they were caused by this app (this is what my "recently used apps" seemed to indicate), but noticed a few people mentioned their Barcode Scanner app was actually causing the problem. This was also true for me; I deleted Barcode Scanner and now my Samsung works normally again (no fast battery drainage, no random pop-up ads, no impression that my phone has a virus).

    One UI 3.1 is awful. Thanks, I hate it. The chat bubbles locked positions (no longer seem to remember last location either) is pretty awfully placed at the top left of the screen. The bubbles are also smaller, and when opened they only take up a portion of the screen. Fonts and text locations have been changed, bolded, moved around and shrunk. Alongside a whole slew of 'minor' user interface design changes, this update is garbage and makes me sincerely wish I could rollback to 3.0.

    Full of pop ups. Terrible. Zero stars if i could. My family has had 5 phones for as long as i can remember. now they are too frustrating to even read on. Who wants to be bounced out of what they were working on only to see a lousy popup? After finding out that it was Samsung that put this mess in our phones AND that it's been going on a while now with no support for correction tells me its time to move up to Apple. Stop threatening, people, make the change now.

    It often times freez. Not user friendly interface, and after 2 years it will start to show you a lot of errors and it drain the battery very quickly. It's as if the company want you to buy a new phone, they are telling you it is a time by giving you hard time on your phone. The only phone really didn't do such thing is LG, which I am switching to it my next phone.

    I just updated and I would like the option to remove all animations as I find them distracting. I don't like the rolling predictive text and the animations they now have. I don't like the cross fading between windows or expanding animations when apps open or close. Also there is something wrong with the display size now. There is a gap on the bottom of my screen that is now black. Even in full-screen video mode it's as if the phone doesn't know there's some more screen to use down there.

    Hate it!!!!! I want it off my phone. There seems to be no way to uninstall It without resetting your phone. Then you have to put all of your apps that you had back on your phone again. Not cool Samsung!!! It makes you feel like your phone has a virus. While I'm doing stuff in my phone an ad will pop up and interfere with what I'm doing. It looks like a virus ad. It says that you won a gift card just answer these questions or download this cleaner because your phone may have viruses. Fix it!

    I have seen when my screens have been changed and apps missing and new ones I never ask for and in an instant. My apps and home pages ECT back in order like I set it up. To me, I don't believe there is a better, safer app. I give it a 10! The only reason I didn't give Samsung One UI a 11 is because 10 was the highest on here. It is a Super App.

    Update a few months later - pop-ups stopped but have just started again. I can't dislike this app more than I do. Additionally, the popups now include music playing. UNACCEPTABLE! I can't have my phone randomly playing music during the day. Same as others have mentioned, I now have annoying pop ups when I'm not even using my phone.

This time around I have the Samsung Galaxy S10 and actually took the time to really look into what features are available and they are good that are definitely worth using like definitely suggest you take your time with some of them and you'll see that actually really f****** well worked on. Thanks for the developers any other people who helped with this GUI

    Do NOT like this app at all! It takes too many screenshots on it's own! Every time I am using my phone it takes a series of what seems like 3 screen shots within 1 minute. The screen shots were not in my Gallery and when I looked at last used app (Play Store > My Apps > Installed > Sort By > Last Used) this app was the one! Freaks me out especially when texting. It's done it again 3x while I have been writing this. Anytime I'm active on my phone it does that. Creepy!

    Pop-up ads-issue solved! Like many, I have been experiencing recent pop-up ads when I turn my phone on. I thought it was this app, but disabling it did nothing. I became suspicious when the same issues happened on my wife's phone. Turns out, I got the pop-ups to stop when I uninstalled my barcode app. I'm not sure why this happened since I'm no Android wizard, but it was not this app causing the issue. I know others have commented about this and I wanted to share my solution. Good luck.

    My phone is virtually unusable since this updated. Full page Ad after Ad behaving like a 3rd party App. Drains my battery, makes my phone over heat Ads pop up in the middle of important emails, calls, when watching something, even caused my banking app to stop working. How can an update be behaving like a virus on my phone. Most irritating thing is you can't disable it!!

    Extremely obnoxious and impossible to disable. 'Oh, you like using gesture buttons? Enjoy the oneui home screen appearing for a second every time you hit spacebar less than perfectly even if you have another home screen set as default. Will also force itself on you if you're in splitscreen and close the other apps instead of going back to your actual home screen.

    It doesn't do anything wanted, and after downloading it there are pop-up adds all the time. There seems to be no way of uninstalling the app and it sucks. I cant find how to get it off and it is like a virus to have. Do not download unless you want pop-ups and a random app that doesn't work with no way of uninstallment.

    Pathetic update this was..my phone was good before and now its sluggish. Pop up ads is frustrating. I cannot go back to the old one..opened apps multitasking is slow..transparent notification is so much of screen use... even when i was not wanting to download the update, the phone started on it own on my 4G data while it was running google maps..I had to stop the car in the middle of nowhere with less battery and remaining data..20 long frustrating minutes.. and now I want this to be removed.

    I have never hated an app as much as I hate this one! I wish I could give this app negative stars because its the worst! It pops ads up on my phone that interfere with answering calls, ads start playing during calls and even at times when I haven't even touched my phone, its is so terrible. Can my phone function without this app because I really want to uninstall it!

    Like many others, I was confused why I was suddenly getting all these ads pop up. Took me forever to figure out which one app was, and after uninstalling many of my apps, I now realize it's this one, the one I can't delete. Very disappointed in Samsung. I've been using them for years, but this is a huge breach of trust. Fix this problem, or I'm gone.

    For my s10e, works pretty good, quite smooth, I liked the old battery saving selection much better though, also has this annoying feature where if you press the earphone mic button for a bit long it activates the voice, which happens even after disabling Google voice and Samsung voice command thingy, I am concerned about privacy so I find this pretty annoying.

    This app is constantly throwing full screen, app overwriting, sound blaring ads!!! Other people have said the ad pop up were from a bar code scanner app. I have uninstalled bar code scanner app and over a dozen other apps from my phone. Still having annoying take over ads. FIX THIS PROBLEM. IF I COULD RATE ZERO STARS I WOULD.

    The 'swipe up' Home and Back buttons do not work any more, extremely frustrating!!! When I swipe left to scroll through Instagram pictures, it swipes the opposite way. Battery life seems to be going down much faster now too. I bought my S20 FE 1 month ago, and because of this UI update its ruined my phone!

    Overrides my preferred home screen app, Apex Launcher. Keeps showing up when I close all open apps. Cannot be uninstalled or disabled. I have to reset my default launcher daily because One UI clears my default home screen setting. Even though I turn off One UI's notifications, the setting is reset to allow them every time I put my phone to sleep or restart it. Also a RAM hog. Inferior and invasive trash.

    Update: I have to apologize to Samsung. The pop ups were NOT coming from here. The pop ups were coming from the barcode app. After I deleted it, I haven't had any more pop ups. DELETE your barcode app or the technical gurus find a way to stop them and let us know. Old: Pop up ads...REMOVE. I suggest we all switch over to iPhone to eliminate these pop ups since Samsung is ignoring us!

    No option to roll back to 4x4 grid. Folders and Quick Panel buttons are totally neglecting the space of screen, which now makes THIS, the worst launcher I had ever used. Pop-up view is utterly messed-up. Can't use several app after slight resizes of the pop-up frames. Shame.

    FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN GETTING POPUP ADS ON THEIR PHONE OUTSIDE OF AN APP ❗ i suggest u download a popup ad scanner app from play store! this scanner app will detect which app is causing the popup ads problem and will notify u to uninstall or disable it. for me, it was my Samsung Pay app instead of a barcode scanner app like the other reviews said. so i uninstalled my Samsung Pay and now i dont get any more popup ads on my screen!

    There isnt anything wronf with One UI it is just incredible coincidence. Starting to think the recent One UI update allows 3rd party apps unknowingly to advert like this. When you get the af popup do the folloeing 1. Click the ||| to goto all apps opened 2. Hold ur mouse over the app that has the ad 3. In the panel that pops out click "App Info" In my case it ended up being a Barcode Scanner app installed months ago, it somehow started the ads post One Ui update.. hope it helps ppl..

If you are experiencing this problem. Check to see if you have a bar cod scanner, if you do uninstall the app. Should fox the issue.

    Reading these 1star reviews claiming its throwing popups and taking screenshots, It's not this app but y'all got a virus or downloaded a dodgy app! This One UI app is a native app which controls the way you view and control your phone. That's why it will show as the most recent app used but isn't going to be throwing up ads or taking screenshots. Test this by running your phone in safe mode to disable 3rd party apps. Or delete your most recent downloaded apps to see if the problem goes away.

    Basic Launcher with little customisation compared to Nova Launcher. I like the look with transparent background etc. Dislike the fact I paid £1400 for the S20 Ultra 5g and get no Google discover with the OneUI 3.1 update, only a downgraded Samsung Free or no coloured backgrounds in video calling apps such as Duo.

    If I could possibly rate zero stars, I would! Ever since my phone updated two days ago I have been receiving non-stop pop-up ads regardless of whether or not I am in an app, using my browser, or doing nothing with my phone at all!! I contacted Samsung and they offered no help whatsoever. I work from my phone so these ads are VERY distracting. I will have to switch to a different phone provider if they don't fix this ASAP. After paying over $1K for this phone, I shouldn't have to deal with this!!

    Because of the pop-up ads, I couldn't get turn off my alarm that was mistakenly set for 30 minutes earlier than it needed to be. I usually uninstall EVERY FREAKING THING that causes ads when I'm not in the app. Had to disable this because it's a system app. Putting ads in your system software is enough to make people switch and never come back. You aren't the only game in town, there's some top competitors and others are moving up.

    I've had many Samsung phones and this will be my last. This last update is really bad. The ads that popup all the time are ridiculous, especially when I'm using my GPS on my motorcycle and and ad pops up and kills my GPS. I'd hate to think about the liability lawsuit if one were involved in an accident while trying to clear the stupid ad. FIX THIS SAMSUNG!

    I love how this is now draining my battery. My phone went from lasting all day to barely lasting for 2 hours. I won't even charge properly now. I have babies this phone and I couldn't figure out why it's acting up until I did some digging in the phone settings figured out what's draining the battery the ended up here. Ask me seems rather suspicious that everyone's having the same problems since it changed the last few months.

    I was wondering what was happening with my phone. After a few everyday updates,my cookies stopped working. This makes it unable to use certain websites that uses cookies or should I say unable to use my phone properly because almost everything uses cookies and I no longer have them. I think I'll go back to LG. I never had issues with it. Dontm pay for the Samsung brand just because you. THINK it's the best. It is apparently not.

    Lacking. Very 'simple' yeah but that's not always a good thing. There are hardly any options at all to make the launcher fit your user style. It just falls short. Can't even set screens to infinite or loop back around. Constantly annoyed at having to shuffle back pages because it's still at Z from last app opened. I just need MORE, more OPTIONS, I'm not afraid of complicated lol

    This is absurd! Like so many others, since the update a few days back I am getting bombarded with full screen popup ads. They have prevented me from answering calls or turning off alarms until I close them out. Not to mention you can't Uninstaller the app. So inconvenience and annoying. Sure hoping Samsung figures it out or I may have to finally get a different brand phone.

    This app completely drained my battery overnight. I use my phone for an alarm and this is unacceptable! And the amount of ads is stupidity absurd. If you stop it from updating, it removes the icons on your home screen and you can't uninstall it either. Now my notifications are gone too. This was my first and will be my last Samsung phone!

    Havent had an issue with this app till recently and have used with my Samsung phone for years. I use all apps in the app but put any websites temporarily I want to go back to visit when I have more time to review. However as of lately it will not let me and there's plenty of empty room on phone and device. This is very frustrating and worthy of uninstalling especially after seeing lots of others are experiencing issues that may be coming as well. Please fix your bug problems!

    Pop-up ads imply you have a cheap phone, regardless of how much the phone costs on paper. A poor message to be shunting into the faces of high-end customers. Totally irritating. Came across this recent survey: "As it appears, over 90% of Android Authority readers would simply refuse to buy a Samsung phone if it contained advertisements. Just over 5% of you would at least consider a phone with Samsung ads if the price was right."

    Although I update Apps from Play Store every few days, I have had problems with notifications since I got the last OS update on 7th October. I don't mind the notification icons at the top left corner of the screen. However, I am now plagued with notification tones from Find My Mobile and for each separate App as it is updated from Play Store. I don't know specifically that this App is responsible but a screen shot of one notification message includes 'One UI Home' in the image file name.

    I share the concerns of most. My phone (S10) has been hijacked with this 2.5 update. Uncontrollable full page ads upon lock screen opening, every time. Font and font color changes among apps that utilize text. Screen rotate malfunctions among many other issues. There is no fix at least from what I have researched. I've been a Samsung user for 15 years. This phone has been rendered useless at $1K cost after 1 year. I will never own another Samsung product again across all their business lines.

    I am also experiencing what others are saying. Meaning that with every update my phone becomes more and more useless. My phone refuses to close apps, or takes a long time to get back to what I was watching. I often get full screen ads, sometimes more than one. And doesn't close until I view it in entirely.

    OneUI is a pleasure to use. Anybody complaining about ads plaguing their phones clearly use the internet wrong. I have never had a single issue with a Samsung OneUI phone so my advice there is; don't be an idiot. Use the internet properly and don't download dodgy garbage on the PlayStore or Google, and you won't have adware on your phone. Samsungs OneUI is not to blame. When you're a very was phone

I wanted to blame some crappy 3rd party but behold its actually Samsung. The update ruined this phone. Greedy companies looking for a another way to make a buck. The good idea fairy that signed off on this dumb ass idea should be fired and forced to pay customers for lost time having to close out ads. This needs to be fixed or this is my last samsung.

    I had ads before popping up randomly. Installed malware apps nothing worked. Some were explicit with the 'hide explicit' ads on. I decided to do a full factory reset and lost much information. I added apps back slowly so I could identify if it was any of the apps I was installing. All had been well literally until the last two Samsung updates. Especially the last one called Urgent Samsung update. WOW this is unbelievable & is definitely causing me to budget for all apple products over time.
