There is an introduction of Advanced power saving mode, which would restrict background data and is said to extend battery life. Additionally, the company has applied a new vibration pattern, which you should notice when your device rings after the update. Other changes include improvement in stability and some bugs fixes.

We recommend you download the update over Wi-Fi since the file seems to be quite large in size. As well as keep your battery life at least above 50% so that the device can complete the upgrade procedure. Note that you need to be patient as it may take the time to update your device with the latest software.

If you haven’t received this update yet on your Galaxy A5 2015 model, well, then you would have to check manually for an update. Doing that is easy, just tap on Settings app and further on About section. There you see a download updates manually option. Once you tap on that, it will check for OTA updates manually. If there is indeed an update sent your device’s way, then a prompt should popup stating the update is available to you.
