A5/A7 2017 were released with an outdated 6.0.1 marshmallow while other phones released at the same time were running nougat.
Samsung claims that it gives A series phones 2 major updates but this was not technically 2 major updates because they were released with an outdated os version an unfair update policy for the A5/A7 2017 users,we consider this cheating!
Phones that were released in the same time as A5/A7 2017 but they were running nougat
LG K10 (2017),LG K8 2017,Huawei P8 Lite (2017),Nokia 6,Honor 8 Lite,LG Aristo,Huawei Mate 9 Pro,OnePlus 3T, HTC U Ultra,Asus Zenfone 3s Max,ZTE Blade V8.
Then why does J3 get it?? the arn't cheap either A series!!! more than J was! ... Samsung should be more like Apple just upgrade when new comes out simple!!!!!. Cpu will run it fine Exynos newest 10 has it....you looked at J3 CPU?? then tell me.
Why would you want to break your phone?
People are considering suing Samsung because the Pie update basically turned their phone into another (terrible) phone. Trust me, you do not want this update.
True. Last samsung update did not do nothing. But at same time making it slower. Samsung a5/a7 2017 with update android 9 pie it not make sence to not making it. It's not fair.
Agree Apple still update 6 , it needs to be the same! I dont want to spend $400 every few yrs......maybe every 5 is ok , anyhow early days lets hope. Sometimes they can suprise us!
All 2017 Samsung Galaxy A models should get a stable, clean, light, fluent, functional and soft android pie.
That is a fact.
We should be more "aggressive" about this by putting this situation and ourselves out there:
Expose this via YouTube videos.
Contact Samsung more often about this.
Because this just ain't right.
