Samsung chat support says u hav to make factory reset to fix this issue as battery timing has nothing to do with nougat .. i haven't tried that yet.
AnonD-694542, 08 Nov 2017I too got the update bt havent done yet ... Any.Thing new in it ? Which country? I haven't received the update in Nigeria.

I called yesterday and they told me they would give me a voucher of the 80% of the value so I have to pay the other 20 I'm so mad cause they didn't tell me that when I bought it but it was on the warranty I never read! Anyways I'm thinking if it worth the money the back broken doesn't affect the cell phone behaviour it works perfectly! I love my phone I hate myself for taking out the case :-[
Received 170mb update in India which includes October security patch.
Selfie camera focus issue not solved yet

I really wonder why the center of my front glass is clear while the outer radius have smudges. I just realized that the center part loses oleophobic coating. (I googled how to determine if your phone has oleophobic coating). Should I worry now? I really don't like tempered glass.
Guys, for those microscratches , it's the OLEOPHOBIC COATING. If scratches are invisible with display on, it's the oleophobic coating, if they are visible with display on, glass is scratched. It's simple. I don't care about those microscratches. I prefer using phone with no screen protector because screen protectors on curved screens sucks so hard...

They will classify it as "user negligence" and won't be fixed under warranty claim. Warranty only works on software and hardware issues, not external body damages.
Anyway, I used a shockproof clear TPU case since June (but no tempered glass). The phone fell 3 times. But no scratches were formed. Just recently, I removed the case because it's so lovely to use this phone without case. So I'm hoping I won't drop it. Haha

I hate tempered glass sold locally. It won't cover the screen edge.to.edge. I can hardly press the sides. So I removed the tempered glass after 4 hours haha.
Don't You ever use this phone without case or tempered glass! I took it out for a half our and my dog drop the cell out from my bed to the flour it was like 12 inches and the back crushed badly! I'm sad i bought it two months ago! I have a warranty so hopefully I will work it out. It's a very very dedicated phone follow my advice even though it's beautiful and we love to use it without case it's not a good idea :-(

Again I just can't believe carefull I've been 3 days it's really upset me.

I did not use screen protector since June. Scratches aren't noticeable on a normal glance. The scratch can't be seen outdoors as well. However, I can see a very minor scratch when the fluorescent lamp hits my screen with the phone tilted and with my eyes focused on scratch-hunting.
Just to tell u guys, I've had this phone for 3 days, I've had a case since I had it, only to notice theres a small scratch on the screen and I'm like how? I haven't miss handled it neither have I dropped it I'm extremely pissed about this. Advertised with gorrila glass 4 I'd beg to differ, My Huawei p8 lite had gorilla glass 3 and for 2 year's never a sign of a scratch, so I'm off to but a screen protector which I have never had to use, IMO this gorilla glass advertising is bull****. I honestly can't my head around it I was like "what the".

But in general, A5 2017 is an upgrade! Camera is not everything on a smartphone. If you only care about camera, then buy a flagship device. There's always a gap between flagship and midrange.

Perhaps Samsung thought adding OIS to the already capable camera of the A5 2017 would affect S7 sales.
