Why Oreo

This oreo update is awful. My apps now have frames. My settings are all bunched together. Phone buttons are moved around. Software updates should not happen. Stop trying to fix things that aren't broken.

Software updates are meant to make your phone better, not worse, Aguimond. We're concerned to hear that your experience is the opposite. bearone21 was on the right track that some settings can be changed back manually. Here is a link to help with your settings:http://spr.ly/6583Dnsl7 Settings

Please clarify further what you meant by frames.

The frames are the white frame around certain icons mostly Google things and my chrome. I have already went through the setting and clicked icons with no frames and nothing changes.

Also I feel the battery life has gotten worse.

My icons during a phone call got moved around. I just don't see the reason for these changes aside to frustrate people.

My husbands LG went through the oreo update on Verizon and it didn't change anything.

Software updates are designed to enhance your experience with your phone, I'm sorry to hear you are not in accord with these changes. I understand you have already selected "Icons only" in the Settings, can you power cycle your device and see if this will help the change go into effect? In addition, you had specified your battery performance has diminished, how long did a full charge last for you prior to the update?
