A5/A7 2017 were released with an outdated 6.0.1 marshmallow while other phones released at the same time were running nougat.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gives A series phones 2 major updates but this was not technically 2 major updates because they were released with an outdated os version an unfair update policy for the A5/A7 2017 users,we consider this cheating!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.
My mom's phone has got this update and it has improved her battery a lot. Now my mom's phone is the Samsung Galaxy J7 nxt which has only 2 gigs of ram and a very weak processor. Btw the battery of A5 and J7 are the same size.
its bull***** idea dude , just different between a7 and a5 just in screen size and battery capacity , if samsung not update to android 9 , my a5 2017 going to trash
If they don't update A3, at one point it is understandable. But A5 is exactly like A7 just smaller, so at least A5 and A7 should get the update. Also I am a huge Samsung fan but from a while I am very angry about what they are doing. The A series used to be just below the S series, just with a little bit of cuts on like the processor,storage,etc. and on holding a phone of A and S series it wouldn't feel different at all. But now they are going with the stupid plastic back and with no IP rating at all. Why Samsung?? Why???
Samsung is on it's way to ruin the A series. Okay,I know A series where not that popular before but now they are not that good.
Only South Korean version of Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 gets Android pie. (The beta program already rolled out) The explanation is, In South Korea Samsung A7 2017 was launched with Android 7.0 nougat OS and features like bixby.
My question is, can I run that OS (South Korean a7 2017 Android 9 pie) in my Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 ?
Take a look
You can't flash south Korean version on a720f ... phone will not accept it for flashing ... there is a deference between the two security ... hop will get this beta soon for A720F ... A5 owners just relax and wait
