After android 6 update .. I quickly noticed some issues .. the big one until now is battery .. it drains like hell .. after browsing for just 30 minutes battery dropped from 100 % to 81 % and that is about twice what I could get before ..
The lock screen sound became too quite and hard to hear .. I tried to increase system sound volume and it improves it a little .. but still quite .. there is no longer viral feedback when tap and hold an icon .. soft keys vibration get its hit too ( soft Letts supposed to vibrate twice if holding it .. it vibrates once now ) .. and now my battery became 78 % ..
I hoped that update solve issues I experienced before ( issue with music player equaliser that is not work properly .. try to ply a song and open my files apologize without stopping your song and play any mp3 from your " my files " app .. then play your song again you will find that 7.1 channel effect finally work the same goes to adapt sound option .. change your song from music player and 7.1 and adapt sound stop working again ... ) .. there is another issue with the light sensor that increase the brightness but not decreasing it .. phone screen must completely face up to make light sensor work to dim it
If any one know how to solve any of these please help me ..

dianne, 18 Aug 2016is this a good phone?It is nice phone for casual usage only .. screen color are beautiful (resolution not very sharp but it is enough ) sound quality is good via earphones , camera is just okay build quality is very good ( i droped my phone accedently on hard ground on its back and get no scratch 😊 )
but on the other hand it is slow for gaming ( even it lags while playing some angry birds levels !! ) there is no OTG , no support for more than 64 gb sdcard ,
There is some software problems here and there but i found the same problems on another samsung devices so it seems it is samsung problem these days

Arju, 06 Sep 2016After mm update phone have any problem ??i have some issue like screen resolution problem and look screed sound is too low.
whenever i open coc the sceren is too blur and unable to play that game with the screen issue.theme store is not provided.
Its embarrassing... After mm update play store is not working properly and error code 927 shows.... Only this problem is facing... But its annoying me
It's embarrassing for Samsung, Marshmallow was officially released in October 2015, and my A500F still doesn't receive update, i know it's a mid range smartphone, but Lg G4C witch is mid range smartphone too, has received Marshmallow since April 2015. How much should we wait for this update? 3-4 years?
