Good news for original A5 users but here one things i don't understand no any news about original A7.....
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2017Before you comment do you ever research? Last year Note 4 received official Marshmallow update... moreWell from the recent article the Note 4 wasn't anywhere on the list to get Android N which coincides whith the fact Samsung doesn't update phones after 2 years which is why the Note 4 may never get it. The note 4 is 27 months old now so we may never get it.
I hope we do I love to get more features on my Note 4 and a faster smoother U.I
I look at the comments and it's funny to see people rage about the A5 getting Nougat before the Note 4.
1: There are strong chances that it will get N too.
2: The A5 and the Note 4 share the same TouchWiz versions, but the Note's version is heavyer. That means it takes more time to complete.
3: Can't you just be happy that Samsung made a midranger that had 3 years and 3 major releases? No other companies say better (bar Nexus, obviously)
4: The A5 is excellent. To have used one, it really is a great device. Not good as the Note 4, but pretty much great after all.
Shadow Snypa786, 01 Feb 2017So a 2014 model phone with 2GB of Ram, 720p Screen, Quadcore 1.2 GHz CPU is getting Android No... moreBefore you comment do you ever research? Last year Note 4 received official Marshmallow update in April 2016. I dont expect Note 4 to get Nougat in February. Usually the Note series android update coincide with the new S series that will be released. So, you can expect Nougat on Note 4 after S8 is released.
Nougat is purposedly not released to the flagship line to prevent 'leaks'. If Note 4 or Note 5 get Nougat now, that pretty much going to show everything the S8 would have. Btw, this A5 get Nougat 7.0. The flagship will be getting Nougat 7.1.1. You got it? Adding to that, I read a lot of other manufacturer halt their Nougat update due to bug issue.
Wow perfect timing for the Galaxy s5 to get nougat but thanks to Qualcomm it won't happen -_-
How about Galaxy Alpha G850? It came in 2014 september, got Lolipop 2015 september. didnt get 6.0 in 2016 even though promised for June 2016. Only got update for 12 months !!!!!!
What about A5 (2016)?
This is ridiculousÂ…old version of A5 gets nougat earlier than A5 (2016)!
WTF..? a5 came with android 4.4 further it went to 5.0 again updated it went to 6.0 and now it's getting android 7.0 is samsung gone crazy....
Julliard, 01 Feb 2017And they said android update support only two years. Kudos Samsung. Pretty impressive for a 20... moreKudos for updating a trash A5 (the shittiest version) and at the same time ignoring a flagship called, let's see, Note 4?
consumersmartphone, 01 Feb 2017"original Samsung Galaxy A5"? so there are fake Samsung Galaxy A5 around? LOLBecause it's the first one and it got rehashed into 2016 and 2017 versions.
So a 2014 model phone with 2GB of Ram, 720p Screen, Quadcore 1.2 GHz CPU is getting Android Nougat
But the Note 4 the flagship of 2014 with 3GB of Ram, 1440p Screen and a Quadcore 2.7 GHz isn't??
Come on Sammy release it for the Note 4, we never got Note 5 in Europe, there was no Note 6 plus the Note 7 had its issues.
Note 4 and Galaxy S5 should get it
how the hell is that possible?!?!?!the Note 4 was released around the same time with a much more capable hardware and is not receiving the update!!!!!!!
Note 4 actually can really be updated to android 7.0 having opengl es3.1 suppprt and the same cpu as the nexus 6, also it was more pricey than a a5 so it not should but must be updated to 7.0
Original A5 was released in late 2014. Does it mean Note 4/S5 have a chance of getting this update?
consumersmartphone, 01 Feb 2017"original Samsung Galaxy A5"? so there are fake Samsung Galaxy A5 around? LOLoriginal meaning the first a5 that came out... not the second one or third one known as A5 2016 and A5 2017 respectively...
consumersmartphone, 01 Feb 2017"original Samsung Galaxy A5"? so there are fake Samsung Galaxy A5 around? LOLOriginal A5 is A5 2015 then there is A5 2016 and then the A5 2017..
So they update this mainstreamer to Nougat, but they do not update Note 4, the last Note that could be bought on official ways in Europe ? This is disgusting.
Sammy don't know there @ss from there Elbow, that many phone's there shoving out each week even they don't know which to update or not, just means much newer phones are going to take longer to update, comical to say the least!
