i have also had live chat with samsung some time back...and there also they said that j72016 was eligible for the oreo update but they dint have any confirmation regarding the same and the update timeline...what i can take from their words is that they are planning to release oreo for this device at some point in the future..but no exact time frame
it was not me who made the chat.. one of the participants from samsung members app.. he also attached the screenshot of their chat as an evidence... so i just said what i saw....
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2018in a live chat yesterday they said that j52016 will be upgraded to oreo...so that means j72016... moreI talked with live chat about j5 and j7 and they didn't say anything. So how is that possible?
in a live chat yesterday they said that j52016 will be upgraded to oreo...so that means j72016 and j7prime will definitely receive the update,..
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2018I'm not sure why everyone's crazy about Oreo. Just don't understand why everyone's running aft... moreYes, we need an update to fix the ram management.
It was great on Marshmallow, but Marshmallow had tons of bugs.
If there weren't bugs, I would have returned to Marshmallow.
but the thing that is making me to hold my breath is that j52016 which is a lower model than j72016 is running an os version superior to j72016..that is nougat 7.1.1 whereas j72016 which is a higher model is only running 7.0..and again there are sources indicating that 2 of the 2016 devices ie j72016 and j7prime are atleast in the oreo update picture...who knows...only time will tell..
Ya...ram is the only concern...having said that it wud be great to see oreo as the last and final update in this device...nonetheless, its still an awesome phone....
I'm not sure why everyone's crazy about Oreo. Just don't understand why everyone's running after it. This phone runs well on Nougat. It's processor is capable of running Oreo, but just 2 gigs of ram? It might be a problem. Ram management is already poor as it is (on Nougat). I'm afraid Oreo will make it only worse. If anything, I just want an update that improves ram management. Because there are phones out there with 2 GB of ram, running Nougat, and they handle multitasking like a champ. Apps don't reload as often. I want an update that at least makes the ram management as good as it was on marshmallow. But I'm not holding my breath. We probably won't get such an update. It's still a good phone
no i guess u r wrong...in a live chat they made it clear that if your phone is compatible then it would get oreo...and also a live chat from samsung france made it clear that this device would get oreo at some point in the future....
It's about the price and class of this phone, not the processor it is running. That's why this phone won't be upgraded. I know that A series usually get 2 major upgrade, but that's because they're upper mid-range. I still hope i'm wrong but unfortunately samsung isn't gonna treat us with Oreo
Dilshan, 23 Jun 2018The sound volume is too low. Tired upgrading the os but same issue.Brush the Speaker grill with a toothbrush and it should be fine.
(I know this might seem like a joke, but it's not and it will definitely fix your problem. Just don't put toothpaste on it lol)
KK, 22 Jun 2018Have some patience to get the update for j7. It will come's in shortly.I really hope so brother
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2018See J7 2015 and tell me the number of major updatesHave some patience to get the update for j7. It will come's in shortly.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2018It's about zero. Mid-range phones usually get only 1 major update See the samsung a5 2016 and tell me about got the times of major update and processor are same in both devices.
Hi I'm using this device last 1year. Every things are good, never heats up, 1.5 days battery backup with 4g volte active internet connection and normal use. And 13-14hrs for heavy usage like playing game like gta vice city, asphalt airborne 8, bia iii, clash of clans, watching videos on youtube. Overall the device is awesome. I love it more for amoled display. I'm using 7.0 naugat, androin security patch label 1 April 2018. I'm giving 10 on 10. Go for it.
