A5/A7 2017 were released with an outdated 6.0.1 marshmallow while other phones released at the same time were running nougat.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gives A series phones 2 major updates but this was not technically 2 major updates because they were released with an outdated os version an unfair update policy for the A5/A7 2017 users,we consider this cheating!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

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 Samsung has cheated us be releasing a phone with outdated os.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??

If the 2017 A devices were not powerful enough then it would make sense for them not to receive android pie and I agree with you on that. The point is that that is false - the J 2017 devices which were sold at the same time at the a 2017 phones, and cost half as much are recieving it. They also have much less processing power and can still run android pie smoothly (even the J3 which is half as powerful as the A3 and has 1.5 GB ram). Also, many people do care about updates and think that they should get what they pay for.

If the A5 2017 has a 3 GB RAM, why is J5 2017 given Android 9 when it has only a 2 GB RAM and has other lower Stats? It seems really unfair because especially the J3/J5 gets Updates for Android 9 and A5/A7 not. They're much better then the others and I know that all because I have an A5 and J5 both. 

 

I'm sorry if this is not correct English, but I think everyone can understand

That is not true. How Galaxy J5 2017 could get Android 9 when is much weaker than A5 2017. How Galaxy A10 colud get is weaker than A5 2017. Can anyone explain that to me ?

I bought my smartphone ( Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 ) in february 2018 and it came with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It's running Android Oreo now, thus making it the first major update. I sense some false advertising from Samsung because my smartphone recieved only one major update instead of two as Samsung has stated. Samsung should consider this issue and it should update at least smartphones that came with Android Nougat out of the box.

Yes. My A5 2017 also came with android nougat 7.0 out of the box. My phone also recieved only one major software update, to oreo. I hope Samsung will release another major update with android pie. If they don't, that's a betrayal.

Mine actually came with Oreo 8.0.0 out of the box (bought the second half of June this year).

Still, no reason not to release Nougat for the A5 other than Samsung being cheap.

When Nought was in existence why Samsung released A7 2017 with outdated OS version and hence this is the reason we are claiming for the ANDROID PIE update with latest  ONE UI.

Thats true! We practically did not get two major updates. In 2017 Samsung A5 2017 should be running Android Nougat instead we got outdated Android Marshmallow. Now Samsung claims we got two major updates which isnt true. We need android P update for Samsung A5/A7 2017.

I bought my a5 as soon as it was relased in srilanka. It was android 6.0 out of the box. Now updated to android 8.0 and not even 8.1 . Um pretty sure this could run android 9.0 without a problem. This was not a flagship phone but still had the best specs during the time of realse to date. I think these devices should get 9.0
