The Galaxy A3 (2016) models in Europe are finally getting a maintenance update that is fixing the battery problems. The problem with the battery is in its charging, it cannot get past 87 percent. The device was launched last year with an Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and everything was working just fine. When the device received the Android 7.0 Nougat update, it started to make problems with the charging. It happened so that the device needed more power for usage. Most of the users were trying to fix this problem, but the only solution was to go back to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The users that had this issue, were complaining and waiting for a fix. Now, we can say that their waiting is over. The company was working for the fix for quite some time, and they have finally released it. They believed that the problem was in some bad line of code, as some of the reports suggest.
The update for the device carries the build number A310FXXU3CQI8, and since it is a maintenance update, it brings up additional changes. It also brings a fix for another problem called “IMS Service Stopped”, after several units were affected in Netherlands. The same problem though was found on some Galaxy A5 (2016) devices, which also received its own maintenance update. The update for the Galaxy A5 (2016) carries the build number A510FXXU4CQI9. If you own any of these two devices, you should receive the update automatically. If not, you can check for the availability of the update by yourself, by heading into settings.
