Samsung has released the latest Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update for it’s mid range phone, the Galaxy A7. It seems rather noticeable that they are doing a lot for their product line this month. However, this update drastically improves the phone, making it a little easier to use for it’s consumers.
The website Android Geeks talks about the improvements made to the Galaxy A7. “The Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Samsung Galaxy A7 will bring support for lock-screen notifications,” They said, “Android Runtime for in-app performance boosts, dynamic status bar, native support for battery saver mode, redesigned notifications panel and Quick Settings, Screen Pinning, Smart Lock, and search functionality within the Settings app.” This is good, considering that the issues prior to this update made it somewhat difficult for people to use this device.
Android Geeks also talked how the update was being rolled out in phases. So, it’s a rather simple process of tapping on the system update that appears on your notification bar.
The website International Business Times mentions that the new update will install some new features for the Galaxy A7. “This new update is said to bring the new design language, Material Design,” They said, “introducing more interactive user interface, animation graphics, replacement of Dalvik with ART as its default runtime to bring improvement in performance-and-battery-life enhancement, new TouchWiz UI features, refurbished interface, lock-screen notification options and many more features.”
It’s good to see that Samsung has taken a step into improving it’s products for it’s consumers. However, that doesn’t hide the fact that their previous smartphones weren’t as popular as they thought they would. Rather than focusing on updating their old devices, they should figure out what to do with what they already have out on the market (meaning the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge). What are your thoughts on the Galaxy A7 receiving the 5.0.2 update?
