I can't agree more ! The fact that it was released on marshmallow instead of nougat that was available months earlier doesn't make nougat a major os update ! If we get android pie with one ui for this phone i'll be more happy to claim the 2 major os updates ! Please samsung make it available !
Yes. Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 was launched with out-dated Marshmallow update while other phones which released at the same time were launched with Android Nougat. So as Samsung customers this seems so much unfair. Hence definetely Galaxy A5 2017 deserve the new Android Pie update. I have been a Samsung customer for years. If Samsung doesn't release the new Pie 9.0 update I am very much likely to pay attention on another brand.
I think Samsung will not bring the Android 9.0 to Galaxy A5 and A7 2017 because there is an official in Samsung Members who is eligible for the update. Sadly, these two units are not in the list. I'm a Galaxy A5 2017 user too.
I need to send you a screenshot of an email which I received from samsung regarding their view on rolling out Pie update for Galaxy A5 2017. There's no option to attach a file here. How can I send it to you? If I can send it to you, I think it would be very important. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
