You can confirm it by googling. But the time is not sure for now. Personally I am very happy with marhsmellow and I can wait. Last time I Update a OS (Lumia 540 from Windows 8.1 and to 10; my device got screwed up.) I also notice some Update issues with S7 Edge. So I hope J7 prime Update will be better. Anyway personally I like big devices as they can be use for everything. If you want a smaller device than you should also consider A5 (2016) which has 5.2 Super Amoled screen and will also get 7 Update for sure. But it is more costlier than J7 Prime. Otherwise you can try Samsung J5 (Which will also get 7 update) or Moto G4. They are 5 inch devices which cost less than J7 Prime and popular devices. Regards.
The thing is the honor 6X is a great phone but i personally dont like big phones or rear fingerprint sensors so i wont choose Honor 6x.
Are you sure about the nougat update??
Dany16, 11 Mar 2017Should i buy this phone or wait for the Moto G5 plus as i dont know if A5 will get nougat update??A5 will got Noughet update in few weeks. I don't like the Moto series devices personally. Also you may consider Honor 6X also as it also a better option.

Wifi is on all day, I would say 45% of the time the display is on. I do casual fb, viber, spotify and a little bit of games plus email stuff all day non stop. Battery would last for about a day and a half. Excellent phone indeed.

It happens because of the file system on the drive. I suggest you to backup the data on drive than first format the drive on a laptop/desktop. Than again format it using the device. Few days ago my pen drive did not worked on J7 Prime, so I did the steps and now it is working great. Regards.
[deleted post]Galaxy S7 Edge is th3 Best. It's edge feature is unique and very useful. Also it's cameras are great. Last but not least supports VR. It you have the budget than just go for it. Regards.

Antonio942, 02 Mar 2017Dont buy A series. J7 2016 is the best for mid end phone. Hard to experience freeze/hang. Plus... moreIt goes by this order: S series, A series, J series. You also have C series that is something in between A and J seris. Also there is Note series, that by quality match the S series. That is whole Samsung hierarchy. Of course, in each of these series, you have phones that can be better than others. for example Galaxy A5 2016 is better than Galaxy S5, or Galaxy J7 Prime is better than Galaxy A5 2016. But S, A, J is general order for quality in Samsungs series.
I bought A5 2016 in April 2016 and was using fine until today when it started showing message "Device Overheating" "Unable to open applications, you can only use the phone and contacts applications." After this message phone switches off automatically. Also both my soft buttons are disabled; they don't light up and doesn't respond. I have done the factory reset of the phone and the issue still persist. The frustrating thing is the device actually doesn't feel hot at all. I kept the phone switched off for a few hours to let it cool just in case but after turning it on again the message shows up again in just a few minutes and the phone shuts down. This whole thing just started today only. I can see quite a few people have reported this on this forum in last couple of days. Could this be related to any software updates or anything similar? Can someone please confirm?
