So I couldn't hold my till the official nougat rollout in India ended up flashing my phone with Poland (XEO) firmware from sammobile
It's been a whole day I have spent and initial impressions are extremely positive, no UI lag no stuttering, everything runs so smooth like never before.
Optimizations ars top notch and it runs perfectly fine with Dual SIM** (which honestly I was a bit sceptical before flashing given the europe J510FN is single sim variant, but no issues )
One big advantage of this Poland Rom over oncoming Indian one is definitely absence of unnecessary gimmicky features like Sbike, ultra data saving, ultra power saving, which to me is great and you get almost a gig or two extra usuable memory space.
Sadly for J5 2016 Samsung skimmed some the features like Secure folder, blue light filter and live stickers in camera and HDR mode, but that is understandable given the hardware it has and is a good thing I would say.
Kudos to Samsung for the optimization and the device feels a whole different in terms of performance than marshmallow
One negative of installing poland ROM is that VoLTE won't work out of the box for Reliance Jio users, so for placing calls you have to rely on JioVoice app though data works fine
Andreea, 28 Oct 2017Well, I didn't get it...I read that someone who has the phone from Poland received the update. But the update isn't available in RO
You can download it from Sammobile and flash via Odin
groky, 27 Oct 2017Where is Nougat gonna release in Albania for j5 2016???You may have the Italian version as there isn't an Albanian model. Use odin to install Russian firmware because it's the same as yours I guess. All SM-J510FN are the same thing.

Hey guys...I would like to notice you...that if someone updates his phone to nougat...then no way to downgrade to marshmallow...so think twice..

Previously my stock rom was TIM Italy. No issues so far but marshmallow was a bit faster I think. No blue light filter and secure folder though I'm a little disappointed.
