Hi , I don't understand; why people keep asking about nougat update , yes it would be better if your phone running with newer version of OS , but I much prefer having a stable & a bit older OS ( Android 6 is very satisfying to me )rather than stutter & power hungry newer OS , of course later is better , but you must ask your self a question " Do I really need latest features ? " or " Is my phone with its system too old and looks outdated that much ? "
Take your A5 2015 with its android 6 and put it side by side with an older phone that running Android froyo and you notice a big difference in every thing from how android looks to how it works and how many features changed and improved. .
Take the same A5 2015 and put it side by side with A5 2016 , and you can feel the differences are not that big at least to upgrade from Android 6 to 7 , or even from A5 15 to A5 16 , despite there are differences. .
Go to galaxy S7 review and look how battery life affected after nougat update , yes it is not happened to all phones , but there is a chance to ..
What I really want to know ,WHY SAMSUNG DOESN'T FIX SOFTWARE ISSUES WHEN HAPPENING? ?!!!
every time I updated this phone , the update got some new issues to the device , even , one of updates fixed a problem;, it came back with the later update !! And since this it is still there ..most of issues are manor but they are annoying, and ruins the experience overall ...
Hope Samsung care about that ... please

AnonD-331900, 26 Aug 2017Where I live this is sold for 250Â€ but will be 200Â€ for only a few days, is it worth it or s... moreHow about the newer model which costs almost the same? Or how about directly a flagship which offers much better value and quality?

Do not update this phone. It have bug with touch sreen and softkey. If you update to android 5.0.2 you will have problem with touch screen, and if you update to android 6.0.1 you will have issu with softkey.
by the way, will it be upgraded to 2015 at nugat or not? answer looks
Not worth it's price!
Have the phone for 2.5 years and these are the problems that I had and I still have:
- WIFI disconnects
- people that call hear their own voices but not mine
- ringtone at maximum and i can't hear it while on the street (no hearing problems)
- latest problem, the battery started swelling up and it's pushing on the screen, making it detach from the case
The phone was used average, few calls a day, no gaming, no Facebook and little web surfing.
Apolodor, 17 Sep 2017Guys, keep dreaming. Snapdragon 410 with 4.4 kitkat android and touchwiz ( before s6 era) can ... moreI think it could have most features. It certainly can handle it, and recently they did change their minds about the ''Terminal OS upgrade'' mentality, where even the ''last'' major update bring along the new UX (S6-era devices got the Grace UX, J5-76 got Samsung Experience 8.1, J36 and Tab A 2015 got 7.1.1 and Samsung Experience 8.5, the Note 8 version)
Guys, keep dreaming. Snapdragon 410 with 4.4 kitkat android and touchwiz ( before s6 era) can handle nougat? Ok, it can handle, but it will have almost zero features from s8, s7 nougat.
And seriously flagship users like me when they sticked to alpha were confident that alpha will get 6.0. Well, it hasn't even got 5.1.1 lollipop. So for samsung phones that sold very well they can probably make support 3 years. But like I said, it will have 1 or 2 features from nougat.
A5 2016 doesn't have blue light filter..., screen resolution, almost nothing from s7 or s8.
