  1. Since the latest S8 update from a few days ago, my device now automatically sends all incoming calls to my voicemail.
    I have checked all my settings & so far, there is nothing activated (settings wise), that should cause this to happen.
    Also, the text in gmail along with Instagram & text message has suddenly increased by at least 3-4 point sizes & as such, just looks odd – and makes it hard to read if like me, you’re long sighted.
    Also my app icons on the app & home screen have also ballooned in size to the extent, that they too look ridiculous.
    I was just wondering if anybody else has had any similar issues?
