Galaxy A3 (2016) Nougat bug prevents charging beyond 87%

An odd bug has been making life difficult for Galaxy A3 (2016) owners. We’ve heard from several users that this Galaxy A3 (2016) Nougat bug prevents the device from charging beyond 87 percent. It’s very odd and there’s no explanation for this bug as yet.

Countless Galaxy A3 (2016) owners have complained about this bug on our forums. We’ve also spotted complaints on Samsung’s own user communities as well. It’s certainly widespread though the cause of this Galaxy A3 (2016) Nougat bug is unknown.

These users are unable to comprehend why the phone charges normally up till 80% or so and then effectively doesn’t. The handset gets stuck at 87% or thereabouts for no apparent reason. Conventional methods of fixing bugs after a major update such as clearing the cache don’t seem to be working.

Some users have tried swapping chargers and even charging in safe mode but to no avail. Even a full factory reset doesn’t help. You can imagine how much this Galaxy A3 (2016) Nougat bug is bothering them.

The most recent firmware release for this handset doesn’t bring a fix. However, some users have been informed that a fix is going to be sent out soon. We’ll update you when that happens.

Have you noticed similar behavior on your Galaxy A3 (2016) after the Nougat update? Let us know in the comments below.

The problem was solved when a patch was released by samsung (last friday) and I applied it to my A3. Now everything is as before. One note however, I think Android 7 consumes more energy than the previous version.

I’ve also encountered the same problem on my Galaxy S7 G930V. The phone will charge straight up to 85 then pause for awhile. But when unplugging and plugging bck the charger it starts to charge again.. I’m wondering if its the cooling thing in the phone that stop’s mine Frm charging just for it to cool down Abit before it can continue.

I’ve also experienced a similar issue with my Galaxy A5 (2016).. sometimes (not always), it gets stuck at 86% so I have to unplug and plug the charcher for it to get at 100%. It is actually running Nougat (7.0) but that also happened with Marshmallow (6.0.1).
