Not all Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be receiving a Nougat update: The reason unleashed

Google’s newest operating system, Android Nougat is finally in the market and the Korean Technology giant Samsung has decided to upgrade its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices’ system OS to Nougat. Samsung started the Nougat update last week and many Galaxy S7 / S7 edge users are lucky enough to have the new upgraded software.

But, not every S7 / S7 edge user will be able to upgrade their software. Only those customers who brought their phone directly from Samsung or have a SIM only deal are entitled to this upgrade. But if the phone has been bought directly through a deal with a mobile operator, you won’t be receiving this stringent measure has been applied by Samsung as it wants to beta test the upgrade before it gets to the other devices. This test is necessary as they want to have all the bugs fixed before releasing the upgrade to the bigger market.
Though the update is expected within the next few weeks but the exact time remains unclear. Android Nougat has brought many upgrades and improvements and is far more advanced than its predecessor, the Android Marshmallow. Nougat includes the new GIF keyboard, some new emojis, and “launcher shortcuts” to add 3D features to the home screen.

In order to check if your Android device is entitled to the Nougat update, you can go to settings tab and choose to download the update manually.

Sony was among the first to launch the Nougat update to their Xperia range of smartphones but it stopped dishing out the upgrade after some users faced problems with the audio playback via third party apps and MicroSD card encrypted data read performance along with some other glitches.

A further report states that Sony has identified the root cause and is providing additional firmware for its rectification as it wants to re- commences the rollout as soon as possible.


Samsung Galaxy J5: A Strong Substitute of the Moto G4

With standard screen brightness and a SIM-free cost of £160, Samsung Galaxy J5 has proved itself the second longest lasting smartphone of 2016. With its cost-effective feature, this brand-new budget handset of Samsung is challenging other budget smartphones like Moto G 4th Gen easily.

The J5 compromises in many areas like performance and entire build quality for keeping the price low. For instance, its plastic frame isn’t waterproof and its glossy finish doesn’t look do good compared to the metal frames. However, most importantly, the J5 is well-made and its matt cover is nicer than the grooved finish on the Moto G4. The J5’s slim dimensions make it really Display:
The J5 is the cheapest Samsung phone that features 5-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED display. Albeit, the Moto G4’s screen is pretty good but it can’t match the J5’s display’s vibrancy. With its 100% perfect black, SRGB colour gamut coverage and contrast ratio, the picture looks superb on the J5.

The J5 is definitely not the fastest smartphone because it can’t compete with other budget smartphones with its Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor alongside 1.5GB of RAM. But in Geekbench 3, the J5 has put the Moto G4 behind in the single core and multicore test. Albeit Samsung’s Android 5.1.1 based TouchWiz interface is relatively responsive and smooth, but the Moto G also proved to be faster at loading games or web browsing.moto_g4
Like many other budget smartphones, the J5 features a 13MP rear camera which is found quite temperamental relying on the lighting conditions. Surprisingly, there’s no HDR mode for which resulting pictures aren’t very satisfactory. However, colour is bright if the indoor photography is done.

Albeit the J5 has many issues, it has enough speed to help you do your daily mobile tasks. A slight backlog is the Moto G4 users have already the benefit of having an upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is not possible for the J5 users presently. So, except the battery life or screen, the Moto G4 beats the J5 everywhere. One backlog is that the Moto G4 is not water-resistant, albeit it features a 5.5-inch full HD display.

Finally, it’s up to you which smartphone you will choose. If you want a handy set with good battery life and screen quality, then the J5 is good for you. But if you want a budget phone with lots of good features, then you should definitely opt for the Moto G4.


Samsung Updates Galaxy S6 & S7 Devices before Unveiling Note 7

The smartphone giant, Samsung finally delayed the launch of its all-new Galaxy Note 7. Instead of launching the Note 7 handset, the company has taken some initiative for rolling out some security upgrades for its Galaxy S6, S6 Edge+, and S6 handsets.

According to the company, the update’s size is as high as 350 MB and this size can fix different security issues of both generations of devices.

One of the flaws that Samsung targets for fixing with the latest updates is a vital error which enables some malicious programs for invading the shared memory of a handset via Jack audio service. Provided that ransom ware, malware and some other malicious programs are getting stronger day by day, OEM like Samsung must uncover the security patches launched by Google as early as possible for preventing the privacy and security of the handset users for being compromised.


Google figured out almost 11 security issues ruining Galaxy S6 Edge last year which included a flaw that could help a hacker gain control over the phone remotely. Within 90 days of being reported, Samsung fixed the flaws and acclaimed by Google for this. Presently, different reports also disclosed that in Galaxy phones, Marshmallow updates played around with stored fingerprints and passwords, which left users unable of unlocking their handsets after updating.

Although, all Galaxy devices are not experiencing these security vulnerabilities, still many are suffering now. So, your device can also belong to them. The company says that once you update your Galaxy device with the latest Android OS, i.e. 6.0 Marshmallow, your device will be unable to identify your fingerprints or stored passwords and so no hacker will be able to use them. So, it will be exciting to see how the Security maintenance update will solve the flaws in July.
