Haven't received any update since February.
That's when the last update was released on my device.
Bough from: Ledikom Mobile Store
I just want to say, as many have confirmed it, Samsung to satisfy it's customer needs (because lately they've been criticised about their downgrades of J and A series), has changed its update policy atleast for this device, meaning it will receive Oreo.
Updates do arrive, that isn't the problem. We will get Oreo anyways, but the problem is that they take ages to arrive.
Samsung should focus, just like they did with S9 and newer devices, implementing Google'S projet treble. That is a project by Google that tends to speed android updates. You can read more about it if you Google up. Samsung has inserted this into S9 devices and higher. If Samsung wants to keep its reputation and customers, they should focus more on their mid - range and low - end devices.
If I'm going to change my device I won't use Samsung phones anymore. Especially not J series. I will try to avoid them because they aren't worth it. I might go with Xiaomi, or Asus because they have far great devices with far great specs for not so much cost. If I'm getting a higher budget I might consider getting a phone from Samsung's A class.
Don't buy this phone anymore, it's not worth it.
You can find some better devices than this, and the A class is always a better option. If you're looking for something at the price range of the J class, then I would recommend you to look at Xiaomi, Asus, Oppo, Huawei phones, because they have something great for less money.

Did anyone else experience mobile data bug after the latest update? My data won't turn on unless I put my phone in and out of airplane mode first. I tried doing network reset and wiped the cache in recovery mode but nothing helped. I don't want to to do the hard reset because I'm hoping for the oreo update and I'm planning to do the reset then. Is there any other way to solve this problem?
Hi all I called Samsung helpline regarding Samsung members and few apps not working they said Nov end or in dec beginning j7 2016 will get 8.0 after that all apps will be working let's wait and see .
no security update till india for j7 2016..and samsung members not working..
Can you tell me which is latest rom build and security date for samsung j710f ??
I adore this device, the viewing experience, the speaker at the back and also the camera and don't forget the RAM, it somehow can manage all apps being sideloaded at once. It's worth buying the phone, and still waiting for the Oreo update for this one to see how much improvement it got after upgrading from Nougat.

It is a stupid move, but oh well... Storage is small but I live with it somehow.
This model has 16 GB internal storage. I need more to be able to install more apps.
If I put in 32 GB SD card and format it as internal storage, will I be able to install more apps?
Will then the internal storage be shown as 48 GB?
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2018Hello i only have one question : Does this phone has always on display? Thanks It does not have, unfortunately. But, you can download app from play store that adds it. I tried it once, and it works without any problems.
Cannot use Samsung members app. It always ask to update the app to latest version.

Yasir Javaid, 27 Sep 2018Sad news for who have Galaxy J7 16 that this phone is No longer eligible for Any Android OS up... moreyasir javaid what about below news https://www.androidauthority.com/android-8-0-update-784308/
Yasir Javaid, 27 Sep 2018Sad news for who have Galaxy J7 16 that this phone is No longer eligible for Any Android OS up... moreWell, as far as I see these are kinda old news. Last update says March 2018, but I just received around 300MB update like a month ago. And yes, I already saw somewhere that Oreo update is in testing phase, plus GSM arena J7 2016 info is updated and it says 8.0 Oreo. So yeah... we just need to wait. I hope that we will get it, but everything is possible.
