Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) in Europe is now receiving a maintenance update to tackle the disappointing battery setback which started after its OS was updated to Android 7.0 Nougat. Recall that Galaxy A3 was launched last year with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and everything was perfect but after it was updated to Android 7.0 Nougat, the maximum battery level dropped down to 87%. This irregularity also caused the battery to drain rapidly and all attempts to curtail the situation proved abortive. The only solution was to return to its initial OS (Android 6.0 Marshmallow).
After customers complaints mainly via Samsung’s forums, the South Korean manufacturing giant assured users that it is aware of the situation and the software issue will be fixed. True to its words, the company is now rolling out a maintenance update which is expected to arrest this battery problem. With this update, Samsung Galaxy A3 with Android 7.0 Nougat can now charge up to 100% and the patch should also fix the battery draining issue. The company did not say the exact cause of this mishap, however, unconfirmed sources claim that it is as a result of a flawed line of code in a recent BlueBorne vulnerability update that the device received.
