A5/A7 2017 were released with an outdated 6.0.1 marshmallow while other phones released at the same time were running nougat.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gives A series phones 2 major updates but this was not technically 2 major updates because they were released with an outdated os version an unfair update policy for the A5/A7 2017 users,we consider this cheating!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.
I agree; the a 2017 series should get pie as the j series 2017 are getting it, which are budget phones. The a3 2017 has the j5 2017 CPU but with usb C and ip68, and it is better. Even the a6 will get it but with the a3 2017 CPU.
Great efforts!!...I really appreciate your good thoughts and hope that your petition benefits all A5/A7 2017 users soon. All your concerns are true and valid, at least now Samsung should genuinely accept their mistakes and soon think into action for providing the ANDRIOD PIE update with SAMSUNG EXPERIENC 10.0 along with ONE UI.
Awaiting for good news soon on this beginning of this NEW YEAR 2019 & also hoping that days are not far away...Cheers!!
Samsung is cheating. This is marketing guys. Do you know programmed obsolescence? This is a skill that improve that. The phone was put in the market with android marshmallow 6.0 properly. And for the selling,the phones was sold with nougat 7.0 pre installed. They did that waiting this moment saying" you almost received two up to date, what are you asking for now?" For me,this is the last time. I don't wanna buy another samsung for any reasons. Oh,that's incredible samsung
J'attends ce mise à jour impatiemment en fait la plupart des fidèles de cette marque dont je suis un surtout que la version Oreo nn'a pas porté grand chose à mon smartphone vraiment très déçu.. c'est vraiment injuste en espérant que Samsung réfléchit bien avant de priver ces clients de ce mise à jour
