Hello guys from Greece! I have an A5 (A500FU) from ORANGE CARRIER and 2 months ago i updated to MM 6.0.1
After that i also confirm that i saw horizontal lines on screen and the screen lost the vibrant of colours! After restart everything ok.... i first thought that a circuit of the screen do the malfunction but it was only one time! After that another issue started! When i watching videos from new sites like cnn or simular phone starts blue flickering! The issue is bigger when the phone is on power save mode and the dimming on screen below the half! First looked up on internet and i found that SW cannot decide if it must use the GPU or SW to create the graphics and is SW bug so we must disable the SCREEN OVERLAYS from programmers hidden menu... I tried it! It doesn't resolve the problem but is "lighter"! After that because my nerves gone mad for a phone on 300+ euro range i went to official service! They re-update the phone (with the official update MM not the hotfix that we expect) they re-program the phone they even changed the whole screen with new one! Just in case! BUT the problem REMAINS!!!! Does it really there is AN UPDATE that we will receive or samsung just leave us with a BUGGED phone????

I also received white horizontal stripes through half of the screen and black color on screen changed to magenta or blue.... I thought it's HW problem...but I turned phone OFF & ON again and everything OK. I installed few apps for screen testing and everything OK. So I cannot confirm now if it is incoming HW problem or SW-related problem.

It is the best phone in $350. You can blindly go for it. The best thing is that we are going to receive Nougat update on this phone.

I updated it just after I bought it about 2 months , and the update cause issues with vibration , I waited for android MM update hoping it solve vibration problem, but actually it increases it and vibration gone in more functions , screen issues, syncing issue, sound alive issues ( actually there was issue with sound alive in music player since I bought it , now it goes to video player as well ) , no more sound effect on lock screen ,if switching to arabic language then smart manager not work properly , system stop showing power consumption for each app , notifications from youtube , Flipboard breafing , smart manager stop working , and I can't download voice for any language cause the option simply is disabled , browser got some problems too , manual zoom not always work .
And these are some
I was happy with this phone at first but since the android MM update I just have a piece of " scrap " , and I really start thinking to avoid SAMSUNG entirely next time ..
I don't want a nougat update , I like android MM , I just want " and really need " an update that solve this stupid issues , I can't believe that big SAMSUNG can't solve this issues with a simple update ..

I saw that the "problem" it happens if you change the camera mode from auto to night or hdr for example. In these modes the phone use only 8mp i think. You have to turn manually 13mp when you goes back to auto mode. Have a nice day!
Hi, after android 6 update , I have some issues
1-Screen tint green some times
2-Blue frames flickers while watching videos or playing games
3-No more vibration feedback while holding a keyboard letter or any other key, soft keys,holding shortcut or widget neither if when putting it on home screen nor replacing it on home screen .
3-Sound alive options within video player not working as before ,it was very good before ( after android 6 update ,Voice preset working very good as before , but music sound like 7.1 channel but a bit quiet,and 7.1 channel itself not good as before ).
4-Sound alive not work properly in music player app , but this problem is already founded from the android 5 .
5-"at least " Flight mode quick toggle some times not response & should tap it again to work properly.
6-Music player not recognize my music on sdcard after turn the phone on for a while ,even after it recognize them , it wouldn't show them on music player widget until I play one of them from the app it self ( using a sandisk ultra 64 , and Kingston 16 ) .
7-Music player widget that included within the notification panel some times not response , until I tap the app it self .
8-If I switch system language to arabic ( my mother tongue ), system stop calculating power consumption for every app as it should be , and of course battery screen doesn't show power usage, which is very annoying to me .
9-Again switching system language to arabic stopping notifications from Flipboard breafing.
10-google and Samsung accounts got syncing problems .
11-Sound effect on lock screen become very quite and very hard to hear, even if you set " system sound slider " to its maximum level .
12-Some times screen flashing with white horizontal lines for a moment , and I really worry about it , and hope that not be a hardware issue .
And these are some of issues that I remember right now .
Some body tell me that samsung release a small update that should fix screen blue flickers , but I don't know about other problems , and unfortunately I still waiting for this update ,and I don't know when it should arrive , marshmallow arrived for more than 2 months know ..
Any one got this update ( or any update ) just tell me if he ( or she ) notice if it fix any of mentioned problems , I really like this phone , and it is not my first Samsung phone , and I never had any problem with any of my previous phones , but with this I have a bad experience ..VERY DISAPPOINTED.
I have problem that my camera every time goes back to 8 MP, although I put it on 13 MP each time I wanna use it? Anyone with the similar problem ?
This morning I put my Samsung 5 mobile in the charger. the phone is not charging and completely dead .I need an advice please.
