I used to own a Samsung a3 2016 handset. When on nougat, it was crap. The battery drained 1% every 30 seconds on mobile data and every 2 minutes on WiFi. I tried everything to fix the battery such as reducing my brightness, optimising etc. but nothing worked. Eventually it got on my nerves so much that I upgraded to the S7.
Lumina, 22 Sep 2017When Samsung dont give out updates, people complain. When they give out updates, people complain.Of course. An update, as the name says, it´s supposed to imprive things, and not to ruin oiur phones.
Nougat ruined a lof of s6´s aswell. Mine s6 edge stopped fast charging. Did everyhing possible. Cache swipes, soft and hard resets, conector cleaning, various carges and cable. Nothing. The phone recognizes EVERY charger, no matter of the output, as a USB connection and the phone charges very slow.
Samsung NEEDS to correct this somehow, otherwise many will never apply such money for flagships that got problematic after a year of carefull usage.
update bugs very common .. but battery charging beyond 70% not recommended -- even on laptops due batteries overheating n expanding and sometimes exploding ..a few years ago sony had to recall 1 million laptop MADE IN CHINA batteries ...QUALITY CONTROLS SIMPLY donot exist in most chinese made stuff .. quick bucks --bugs galore ..but sleazy greedy usa uk etc etc corporate BOSSES MAFIAS shame ..

When they give out updates, people complain.Because they actually whether an update is good or bad?
Like Oreo update making alarm clock crashing.
Since its been a year after I purchased my mobile A3 2016 .Nearly after a 6 month it started a problem facing that battery is not getting charged properly or drained fastly.sometimes it's get stucked merely.And in a year now I changed the new battery also .not worth spending money within a year after purchasing mobile

its not only charging problem...but battery is discharging like anything......even when network is constant...the only good thing about this phone is its form factor and camera....phone tends to get sluggish with time....
Ossie77, 22 Sep 2017Just have to say that I think the A3 2016 is one of prettiest phones ever made. Shame about th... moreSame here. Very beautiful and one hand friendly. But specs should've bumped up a little.
At least at 2014 flagship level.
Lumina, 22 Sep 2017I'm pretty sure your battery needs a replacement and has nothing to do with the firmwareNot if when it jumps to 1% the device continues to be used nornally for hours wothout charging.

Lee Kun-hee, 22 Sep 2017It was built based on Note 7 FirmwareNo, its not. This A3(2016) was released in December 2015. Got nothing to do with Note7. The Nougat update which cause this problem was only rolled out on June 2017 for A3 (2016).
