    Software downgrade

    Hi, I've had my S4 for nearly 3 years and I absolutely love this phone and refuse to replace it with a new one. There was never any problems until yesterday i accidentally updated the software. I have to admit my immediate concern is how it looks - you may say it's not really an important issue but to me it is. It looks like a completely different phone. Also the apps are all over the place and I don't know how to move the shortcuts from one page to another.
    Is there any way to uninstall the software update and go back to the old version?

    Welcome to the forum

    You are not the only person who has complained about the way the new version looks. I don't remember anyone being able to downgrade but I may be wrong.

    Welcome to the forum Dora!
    Unfortunately, as @Leeshor mentioned, there is currently no way of "downgrading" your current OS version.
    As far as "looks" go, you might look into installing a third party launcher from the Play Store. There are a number of really nice ones available. (Apex, Nova, Go Launcher just to name a few) These launchers will allow you to easily customize the look of your device much moreso than the stock launcher will.
    As for moving apps on your homescreens, you can "long press" on an app shortcut and drag them wherever you want. Not so much in your app drawer unless you use a third party launcher.
    Let us know if there's anything else we can give you a hand with.
    Good luck!
