A5/A7 2017 were released with an outdated 6.0.1 marshmallow while other phones released at the same time were running nougat.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gives A series phones 2 major updates but this was not technically 2 major updates because they were released with an outdated os version an unfair update policy for the A5/A7 2017 users,we consider this cheating!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

I can show you my J5 2017 and A5 2017.
The J5 has Android 9 and the A5 only 8. I hope that you see it now.
And yes, I rlly dont understand why A5 2017 is not getting Android 9. All unfairness to me pls :DD
Even the J series got the update man. They have about 1.5gb ram and only 16gb rom. If they can get it why not we, and we paid more than them. Samsung has cheated us be releasing a phone with outdated os. If in Jan 2020 someone releases a phone with pie, and then upgrade to Q by april,it won't be fair right??
The A5/A7 have strong cpu's with Oreo they got even better than with Nougat,they have better processors than the new relased A6-A6 + phones.The problem is that they should have been relased with nougat not marshmallow since Samsung says that it gives 2 major updates instead of supporting the phones for 2 years at least.
I think you may be braindead we are no talkning here only about the best were talking about j3 who got it are u kidding me.Do you think that s an argument nope please search what devices got this and then reply.Cheers
Don't wait for uncle Sam, they won't do good.
If you really wanna try out pie on your A5/7 2017 check this thread on XDA:
Thanks to this developer, you can now flash the official pie update for the Korean variant of A5/7 2017 ported for the global variants.
I've been using this ROM on my A720F for a week now. It's buttery smooth and I'm happy with the performance. Screenshots included
