"Worst software upgrade system"

August 01, 2014  |  By Dennis_TBL69

 |  Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

Pros

Nothing, Nadda, Nyet, Nein, Non, Naye..

Cons

Everything about it.. Crashes, locks up, wipes out..

Summary

They have arguably the best smart phone on the market yet their brain dead developers cannot develop an upgrade software system to compliment Galaxy's.. Once if F**Ked me up with my 1st Galaxy 4 which is summarily crashed and wiped out everything, I will always recommend to avoid like the plague it has become.

"Complete and utter crap!"

May 20, 2014  |  By lrbassmom

 |  Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

Pros

none that I can see

Cons

Kies3 will bloat your Outlook, mangle your records, and eat up memory on your phone

Summary

I THOUGHT Kies3 was going to be like 2.6, which was excellent for syncing my phone, calendar, media with Outlook. 2.6 would allow you to choose how much to sync, how far back, and would explain if file was deleted on phone or on Outlook. None of that exists with Kies3. Kies3 is complete and utter crap. 3.2 took away functionality (no! I do NOT need to sync 10 years of past calendar appointments), and cannot tell the difference between records deleted on phone and records deleted in Outlook.

Not only that. It will create multiple calendar items, over and over. The only way to clean up my phone was to delete unwanted, past calendar items in Outlook and then uninstall Kies.

Seriously, GET RID OF IT! You do not want this anywhere near your computer. Or your phone.

I'm not sure what this bloatware does to media but I believe it when the previous reviewer said it mangled their mp3 files.

I've previously used Companionlink and that did a pretty solid job. Although I don't want 2 different calendars on my phone. But if that is what it takes to straighten out my calendar. So be it.

I love my Galaxy S3, but really really really HATE Kies 3!

"Only delivers on part of its promise"

May 06, 2014  |  By pmignini

 |  Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

Pros

Transfers wifi, bluetooth, texts and select other settings

Cons

Does not move apps, just some app settings.
Does not move home page or screen settings.
Does not move email accounts.

Summary

Had to factory reset my phone, and used Kies on my Galaxy S4 (Verizon) to help with the restoration. Although it did transfer some things - text history, some app settings, wifi networks, a few other things - it was not the catch-all it claims to be. No apps were restored even though I selected this option. No email accounts were transferred. From what I've read, apparently this software is hit or miss. So, it doesn't hurt, but it doesn't help that much.

The fact that a seamless Android backup still does not exists blows my mind.

"WARNING - DO NOT DOWNLOAD SAMSUNG KIES!!!"

May 05, 2014  |  By Spyoz

 |  Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

Pros

There is NONE... Seriously people, this is the most pathetic, simple, unprofessional, basic, boring POS computer software ever!! People, PLEASE PLEASE, go buy a Nokia and use their Nokia suite, that is awesome as you can send/receive emails from the pc... and basically everything from theirs!
SAMSUNGS KIES is worst program ever have used along with any phone. Which ever Samsung engineers who invented this need updating and the Samsung CEO needs to be let go (SACKED IMMEDIATELY) !!

Cons

EVERYTHING!! I hope Samsungs management read this!
People, DO NOT, let me repeat, DO NOT download this program, instead, go buy nokia products! I am looking at putting together a petition to have al upper management of Samsung SACKED and replaced.

Summary

People with half a brain will realise that Samsung is SERIOUSLY slipping with there products lately and here you are with such an great phone to have it let down with the backup of online connection. Samsung management, please read this and contact me either to discuss this matter or to sue me, either way, we need to talk!!

"Worst Software EVER!"

March 17, 2014  |  By 3232132

 |  Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

Pros

Free - so is a good poke in the eye

Cons

While I actually like my Galaxy phone, I will be RUNNING back to my Iphone upon completion of my contract due to the inability to ever be able to sync my Outlook calendar, music, etc without complete frustration and waste of time. Upgrades to newer versions only reduce the functionality even more.

Summary

It is actually remarkable at just how bad this software is. A real shame as the phone shows real promise as a bona-fide competitor to Apple. Unfortunately if you can't effectively bridge you phone and your computer, it doesn't really matter how good your phone might be. I agree with another user, a one star is still over-rating this code.

"Wow....what a let down!"

Used this software in version 2. Worked perfect backing up and restoring. Now I just used Kies v3. What can I say???? Did NOT back up my urgent messages....lost them all. What a JOKE!!!! Stay away from at all cost! I am not the only one...Google it. Bunch of morons...do they actually test their software before realeasing it?????????? NOT HAPPY!!

Summary

Absolute joke, Pity their incompetence has lost me all my important messages!

Updated on Mar 5, 2014

Where did they get their programmers from? Kindergarten? Oops...even they could do better!
