Abhis..

Can't download anything otherwise the browser is the best. So i am having this issue where whenever i download something it goes 100% and then fails to download the file. Tried reinstall the app worked for a while then this error started again. It happens only in the normal browsing mode while i can still download files in secret mode and other browsers so i think its due to some bugs. Using it on samsung m32, kindly resolve this issue.

Deser..

It's a pretty good web browser without all the worthless fluff that others are weighted down with, but it has some fluff of its own. I have always hated being forced to keep software or items that are of no use to me, and Samsung Internet does this in the way of preset bookmarks. There are bookmarks that come with the app that you cannot delete. On top of that, at least 2 of the preset bookmarks link to pages that don't exist. Still, I cannot delete these. Not cool!

oosha..

I like this browser, secure and stable on my device but please fix your browser, it's occasionally buggy despite having enough space, not to mention that checking the downloads makes it lag, it may respond after a while or not (usually). Another weird bug is after searching, changing the text may give black screen or something like that, not a big deal but still it can hinder me from searching. Also, it should let me select the bookmark directory before I can save it to overcome this hassle

Inny

It's become buggy and laggy lately. The keyboard, the quick access menu and settings menu don't launch as quickly as it's supposed to. It takes its time. I'm sitting there waiting for these to catch up once it's pressed. It shuts down and am always getting an error message saying app isn't working.

Jenni..

Tabs are opening on their own while I'm talking or texting. It just pops open with some random site. Just now opened with a freaking car extended warranty site! Wth is wrong with this browser? I've never had issues like this before. I deleted the samsung browser and it stopped, but I need it for certain things. I need this fixed please. Thanks!

Robert

I think this is the best browser on Android. We can install ad blockers to help the device use less data, run cooler and preserve battery. The Samsung Internet browser also is incredibly dark in dark mode, fully turning off pixels not in use. This is very nice and relaxing at night because Samsung blacks out every website. Finally, this browser does not collect your personal imformation. The only issue I found is that CSS untagged elements are not color managed correctly, but I don't mind.

Napol..

I have mixed emotions regarding the app. When it works properly it's very beneficial but the issue is consistency which it is not. I experience loading errors and data suddenly disappearing in the middle of conducting an arrival call or worst a loaded call. No, it doesn't happen often but just enough to be annoying.

Alex

I've been using Samsung Internet for years now, and it has always run smoothly on my phone! The dark mode is great compared to some other browers, and the options are easy to find and navigate. Finding and editing my search history is intuitive. There's nothing more I could want in a browser!

Miz

Crash, crash, crash, crash, crash, issues with cookie enablement for websites, cookie setting hard to find, Samsung browser is not recognized by many sites 😑 i'm so sick of updating this app. It was updated 2 days ago and now i have to update it again. When i first got my phone the browser ran flawless. With all of these updates it has turned into shxt. I'm seriously thinking about switching to a different brand. This is ridiculous

AK

I used to use Google Chrome, but I switched to this default browser and I like it WAY more. Just being able to have ad blocking extensions make it a better web browser. Idk if Google has blocking now, but I don't really care since this works perfectly fine. And I'm not automatically taken to a corresponding app. I can CHOOSE to stay on the internet or go to the app. I don't experience the problems everyone else seems to, so idk what to say about that.

DK

The best functioning browser for Android so far. It might not pass the 99 tab limit, and it might've lost the ability to play sounds when minimized or with the screen off. But it's been the fastest, AND the dark mode is the best so far. If it can work on background sound to being able to play again easy 5 stars. I'd also recommend adopting a read aloud mode.

Steve

This has become increasingly frustrating. I copy and paste a lot of data/text from a variety of sources. Recently the copy/paste tool has become unstable, in that I used to be able to use it pretty easily. Now I'll grab text, and it stops responding before I've reached the end of the text I'm grabbing. It was working great several months ago, but now it's not working as before.

Spooky

It keeps randomly opening to ads constantly. And what I mean by that is I'll be in the middle of a text or playing a game and all the sudden it'll open up with ads. It's been wasting my battery and it's utterly annoying. ***** it's not your traditional ad either, like the ones you get while playing games. Most of the time it's a website about Healthcare or buying a home. And it takes forever to let me out of it *****

Dean

This has been my default browser for a long time. However, as others have noted, the latest update made it almost unusable, with regular freezes and pages becoming unresponsive. This appears to be related to the "Smart anti-tracking" feature. Disabling that in the privacy settings causes the app to work the way it used to. Samsung, please investigate the performance and resource usage of that feature. UPDATE: Fixed in 28/5/2022 update. Nice one!

Boris

This is a very fast browser which is also efficient in terms if battery usage. It has a very good dark mode which affects both the browser and web content. Its only significant disadvantage is that it is low on features. There are ad blocking extensions, but no other extensions. I see no way to have per site settings, like disabling dark mode or cookies on some sites. The browser's performance and built-in dark mode are enough for 5 stars even despite that.

Jenni..

I've been using his app for 3 years. Everything works great! Easy to use, it has every option it should have, doesn't take a lot of room, and accepts plug-ins seamlessly. I use it on my phone AND my tablet, and love it! However, a recent update caused the text function to stop capitalizing the first letter of a sentence, and it makes it awkward when I try to fill in forms on web pages.

Andrew

This has been my go to browser on every Galaxy I have had for the last 12 years. However the latest update has made this totally unusable on my S10. Pages freeze, back button doesn't work, restart makes no difference. Reluctantly switched to Chrome out of necessity. Please sort this out Samsung. I would ask how you can release a version of your own browser that doesn't work on your own phones but I'm old enough to remember the mess you made of Kies....

Guest

I've always been very happy with this browser. Then yesterday I updated it, bad move! As with others, my homepage, the BBC website freezes, doesn't load properly with error messages offering to close it. A previously good browser has become very glitchy. Please can the Samsung Elves sort it very quickly and issue another ( working ) update. Update: it is getting almost impossible to use as it is freezing on several pages. It used to be good.... why change??? Grrrr.

Al

The dark mode used to be quick and simple, like drawing a curtain. Since a precious update, this mode needs to completely refresh the page before it appears, which makes it too slow. And I'm still waiting for the possibility to alphabetically sort your bookmarks and bookmark folders, like almost other can. But I do like the addition of the zoom button, making zooming and text adaptation possible without adjusting the font size. And I'm glad the outline of the current tab is back.

Gary

The last update on 4th May 2022 has made this app nearly unusable. The back button takes forever to return to the last page on most UK websites. For the first time in owning Samsung phones (first was S2) I am getting multiple "unresponsive" messages Only way to go from these pages are to remove the tab and start a new one. I have cleared cache, and tried everything else that I know from years of being a Software QA manager/developer, but nothing fixes this issue.
