Angry New Android OS SUCKS!!!

Samsung Galaxy S2 and I did the latest upgrade.. the result??
My battery life is cut in half
My phone now constantly drops calls at 2 seconds into the call
When plugged into a wired head phone for calls the Music app starts and plays all my sound files
There is no way to uninstall bothersome Google Apps.. like Google Music/play
Every app that I normall use is very much slower even on starting

Based on all of those problems I would classify the "update" more correctly as a VIRUS as it took a very usable phone and made it functionally useless. When I have to dial a call 4 times every time just to make 1 call with out dropping the call...??? This update does act more like a virus rather than a well developed and tested upgrade. There should be an uninstall for the upgrade.

Have you done a factory reset since you updated? This often solves a lot of issues after a system update.

Also removing pre installed apps has not ever been possible without rooting.

That sounds more like it's Samsung's fault than Android's. The hardware manufacturers adapt their stupid skins to the Android system, and often they do a bad job of it.
