AnonD-350642, 12 Nov 2017Surprise to see samsung j5 ( 2016 / 2015 ) , samsung j7 ( 2015 ) got update nougat update 7.1... moreAre you sure that both J5's got them? One of my family members has J5 2015 and there is still no Nougat, and I really doubt it will arrive since it was already updated from Lollipop to Marshmallow. Same thing for J7 2015, I saw that only version that originally came with Marshmallow will get Nougat, and version that was already updated from Lollipop to Marshmallow won't get it. And yes, there might be a slight chance that we will get Oreo in future since CPU in 2017 model is the same as ours. But yes, it's strange how cheaper phones got 7.1, and we are on 7.0.
After 26mb update phone charges upto 97% then suddenly jumps to 100% hope samsung fix it soon

Dex, 10 Nov 2017Samsung j5 2016 got nougat 7.1.1 ui 8.5 and i have more expensive and stronger phone at 7.0 UI... moreI think so I am very disappointed why Samsung did not give us 7.1.1 instead of 7.0 while j7(2016) is more expensive than j5(2016).I bought j7(2016) because of better battery life but after 7.0 it drains too much.
Guys after that recent 26 mb update on Indian version ..the overnight batterydrain seems to be gone..i tested fr 2 days only 1% is consumed but battery is getting charged only upto 97% after that it simoly shows up to 100% within a sec.. if u remove battery and insert it again it ll show only 97% and battery consumption frm 100-90 is faster after 89% it is slower as in marshmallow.. hope samsung ll fix these issues in future update
Samsung j5 2016 got nougat 7.1.1 ui 8.5 and i have more expensive and stronger phone at 7.0 UI8.1. I will never buy a smsung phone anymore. This is the last !!

AnonD-712194, 10 Nov 2017How's the multitasking (how much apps can you keep running without reloading when switching be... moreYeah, update size is the same like it was for me, so no worries there. And for multitasking, I can't really say too much since I'm used to "kill" my apps before I lock my phone, but as far as I see, it's a bit better than on Marshmallow, but no major difference. Battery life is the same for me, it all depends how you use it in the end. Overall, I don't regret that I updated, since there are new features like multi window and adjusting levels of flash when you use it as a lamp, and UI just looks better. Only thing that I noticed is when you are on lock screen clock takes like a half second to appear, but it's the same for everyone. So yeah, I would go for it.
Crocop, 09 Nov 2017Looks like it all depends on region. I updated mine to 7.0 and I have no problems so far here ... moreHow's the multitasking (how much apps can you keep running without reloading when switching between them) and battery life compared to marshmallow? Everyone seems to complain about those 2. I'm also from Croatia so I wanna know if those bugs affect us too. I got the notification about the update few days back but haven't updated yet. The update is 1003.10mb big and the build numbers say BQI7/BQI2/BQG9...is your same too?
After 26mb update security patch remains same as before.I did not notice any improvement but multitasking seems slightly improve.I don't know it happened because of factory reset my phone or because of 26 mbps update?my device model is j710fn(India).overall my battery still drain so much in the night while standby mode I always turn off all wi-fi ,internet but my battery drain up to 10%-15% when i sleep.
Looks like it all depends on region. I updated mine to 7.0 and I have no problems so far here in Croatia. I had my friend's J7 2017, and mine J7 2016 today in my hands and they are performing almost exactly the same. Main differences are in fingerprint scanner, full HD screen and build quality, but it's really not something groundbreaking to me. So yeah, if you have problems, you can either wait for Samsung to push update to fix them, reset the phone (might fix it), or just downgrade to Marshmallow (don't do it if you didn't do it before, since it can brick your phone).
In 7.0 update there is PROBLEM. When you are typing with keyboard and the screen is locked , when you want to unlock you can't because the patern isn't visible or pin code , so the solution is one and only - restart. Samsung please fix it.
