Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 and 2017 receive security update


The Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 and Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 receive the December security update. It rolls out in phases, so it can take several days for it to reach your device.

That is what Sammobile reports today.

Samsung is often criticized because of its update policy, or rather the lack of updates. Last month it was hit and even the Consumers Association got involved in the discussion. According to the representative organization, the South Korean electronics company gave too limited a period in which it guarantees updates for its devices. 

This term is currently 24 months. The criticism went so far that consumers were advised to purchase a Samsung Galaxy J3 2016 or Samsung Galaxy S7 (Edge), because of the above. Rightful criticism, although Samsung also shows how it should be done. The Samsung Galaxy S6, a device from 2015, received the latest security update from December last week. The same applies from today for the Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 and 2017.

These devices now also receive the most recent safety patch. In addition, he does not install any new functionalities. Also, nothing changes to the Android version. So you still have to be patient for Android 8 Oreo. It is advisable to start the update with a full battery. This way you avoid unnecessary shutdown during the process. It is also advisable to call the update when you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. After all, it ‘weighs’ almost 200 MB and this can seriously weigh on your number of available MBs per month.
