With WiFi always on and played newly launched Injustice 2 heavy game as well.
I have attached screenshots, considering I am using the same battery since Dec 2014, it isn't bad. It also charges from 50 to 90% in just 27 min.
My phone is Exynos G850Y Indian one.
I am from India & has been using Alpha Since November 2014 & it is running on lollipop 5.0.2.
Today I've receive an update of 257.93 MB OTA. Below are the screenshots before updating the device to latest update.
And here are the screenshots after the update:
I didn't notice any changes in to my device accept Build Number, Security Software Version etc.
Did anyone from India have received this update yet ?
Many Thanks in advance.
13.05.2017 my last word for this beauty : **** you samsung. I went back to a5 2016. I really want you to destroy this phone after nougat update as well. Even if you give me a free note 8 I will throw right into your face, while it is on fire.
