Hi Steve.

It's not just Sansung though is it? The following page makes interesting reading for android users and the fragmented nature of operating system upgrades. Only 10% of handsets using version 6 after nearly 12 months and chances are that manufacturer take up of version 7 will be even less than that.

So, to keep up with the latest operating system, according to the article, you could either screw your warranty by rooting your phone or buy a new phone every 12 months...

Regards.

Kevin

Hi Saqib,

Yes, this is one thing I love about Samsung (Not). They are very slow to update. You will get security updates, but not Operating System updates.

It is reported that the A7 will get 6, but when is a mystery.

No, you will lose some Talkback functionality in Android 5. It's a nice little tablet, if only they will update to 6.

All the best

Steve

Subject: [access-uk] Samsung Tab A7

Hi. I have recently purchased the new Samsung A7 tablet. Unfortunately this device is running Android 5.1 much to my dismay! Another issue is that I’m not seeing options for moving apps in the Talkback context menu on this device where they appear on my Motorola 4g. Is this because I’m not running Android 6? This device is a 2016 model and I thought Samsung would of put Android 6 on it. § ** To leave the list, click on the immediately-following link:-
