can I go back to a previous update?

The new update on the sumsum galaxy s7 active is terrible. I hate that the interface has changed. Is there a way to change it back?

Re: can I go back to a previous update?

Hey @schoolnbetz,

 

Good afternoon and welcome to the Community Forums! Getting new updates which change the user interface can be concerning, and can take some time to get used to. I will happy to share some information on the topic.

 

There are many new settings which come with the update; like the tab you can pull from the side of your screen, the voice assistant, and Google Assistant. After receiving this update myself it took quite some time to get the settings right.

 

This update cannot be rolled back, without the operating system automatically updating the device again. If you need any assistance changing your settings to better fit your liking, let us know and we can get you the instructions.

 

I hope you have a great day, best regards!

I agree.  I bought a pixel in December and with nougat update put, I thought I would switch back to the S7.  I lasted less than one day, even after tweeking settings.   

I really like the pure android on Nexus/Google phones.
