A5 2016 launched 2 months after the release of marshmallow, but still the phone came with android lollipop and then was upgraded to 6.0 and 7.0 , as midranges get 2 major updates. upgrading to 6.0 doesn't count and this is what samsung does. ....this is 2018 samsung and this trick is not gonna work anymore or you ll start lossing customers.............i mean for the price i bought this phone i could have got oneplus 5 rightnow....
If they're not going to update our A5's to Oreo then at leat they should upgrade them to Nougat 7.1.1 or send us a little update to the latest Samsung experience.
Don't they want my next phone to be Samsung?
A phone running 32bit Android on a 64bit SoC. Still 32bit after two updates, the last being in 2017!!!! Amazing job, Sammy.
With this 240MB update, Phone seems more responsive and and flashy and no changes in android firmware.!

Looking good, Screen awesome , Battery life poor
Very Much Heating , Hanging at sometime (But not so hang compared to other samsung mobiles)
Camera Average , Speeker good , RAM and ROM not much in this range of price
Only available 2gb ram and 16gb internal
Last word : I Think This phone is not valued for money
For watching videos and playing games it is good but peefomance and other systems is just not upto the mark
Rating : 2.5/5

AnonD-749471, 03 Apr 2018Hey... could anyone tell me whether their phone crashed after upgrading to the nougat 7.0 and ... moreMy father's A5 have not crased single time after upgrading to Nouget. But if your device does, then it must be cause by 2 things. First left over of your old OS files and data. Second some old apps which needs to be removed and install fresh.
I advice you should do a factory reset after taking a back ups and removing the memory card. After the fresh installation complete, restore the data and get the apps only from Playstore. Please don't unistall any dubious APK or patched games, as they have issues. Regards.
Hey... could anyone tell me whether their phone crashed after upgrading to the nougat 7.0 and if so how you resolved the issue?
did someone tried to install Always On Display Plugin, which are available for all samsung phones running andriod 7. if yes, then please share whether its working properly or has caused any other problem.
Today I woke up with dead pixels in top right corner, now half of the screen is dead. No cracks. Nice Samsung, nice. Looking forward to A8 2018. I am suspicious now about their "best in class display".
