But what pisses me off is that my Nordic version is still on 5.1.1 with May security level. Is there anyone else still waiting for Marshmallow? I'm from Finland.
i think i prefer exynos than snapdragon....snapdragon easily get over heated.

Hello all. I have a big issue after updating to 6.0.1.
When I take a pictures with the flash on, the flash turns off before the picture is taken and pictures are saved all in black, if taken from a short distance and in dark room. It is the same as pictures are taken without flash as the flash turns off right before the moment the picture is saved. Anyone having this issue? Any fix? I am going to return my phone to the shop I bought. I believe it is a software related issue, not hardware because with Android Lollipop it was working OK, because the flash works, but it doesn't stay on long enough to save the picture with flash.

VJ, 03 Nov 2016Guys this phone has an Octa-core processor! Samsung just lock it away from the user! Google it!Maybe you are getting mixed up with the upcoming A3 (2017), because that will have octa-core CPU. Snapdragon 410 is quad-core only.

AKS14, 11 Oct 2016In India, where I can buy galaxy a3 2016 ? I tried to find it in every online store but it is... moredx.com. samsung hasnt released an official launch date and theres already rumors of an a3 2017 doing the rounds, so its unlikely a3 2016 will be released here. buy it from amazon.com for 20000 including the export fee or from dx.com at 17600
T GOD, 27 Oct 2016Please does it support 4g or 3g I want to know Yes it does support 4g
I updated my smartphone few days ago from 5.1 to 6.0.1 and i haven't noticed any problems. There is only slight connection loss sometimes when the signal is weak, 1-2 dashes but it reconnects after 2-3 sec(i think it will get a fix with update). So, there are no real problems with 6.0.1 and i noticed the phone is much more responsive and smoother.
