On nougat battery life is poor as compared to marshmallow it is decreasing 1.5x faster than marshmallow
In marshmallow my mobile give me 8 to 9 minutes per 1% battery time and in nougat it gave me 6 to 7 minutes only and in nougat screen on time is 8hrs and in marshmallow screen on time is 9hr 54minutes
Can anyone tell me how to downgrade to marshmallow??

I remo... moreI am using without front glass protection & dropped from my hand single time but no problem but I use back cover as there is not any specified gorilla glass protection. I also feel that in case of gorilla glass extra glass protection is valid only for commercial reason not for technical reason as because my 3 years daughter always drop me & my wife's phone & screen glass protector broken & finally we are using without it to save cost & so far both samsung (J7 prime & A5-17 are working fine). Sorry for my long history
Anyone tried using this phone without screen guard and back case? Are there scratches?
I removed the back case at this moment and it feels so good. But I may return it back if the back is scratch prone.

Using a3 2017. Waiting for the screen to body ratio of 2018. If so it will probably be almost the same as a3 2017. Defenitly will go for a5. Waiting to launch....
