Re: Regret updating to oreo,Phone is almost un usable

@angrysonyfan

If you updated straight via OTA, I'd suggest that you perform a software repair using Xperia Companion. This will do a clean installation of the latest firmware and will also wipe your internal memory, which is advised when upgrading to a higher cookie version. Don't forget to backup using Xperia Companion, but preferably without adding apps or settings to the backup.

I don't like it either so far. And I have just installed it also. The whole interface looks Samsungish. 🤔

@Englishmanx

I disagree with you is the "Samsungish" part, it's the exact opposite of Samsungish imo! The new Settings interface is designed by Google itself, and it's the nearest to Vanilla Android. Samsungish means heavily customized with loads of bloatware.

That was a fast software repair! Did you install any 3rd party apps yet?
