Following Oreo update, Samsung J7 won't charge on non-Samsung chargers

philippejj0421

    Since the latest Oreo update on Sept 22nd, my J7 no longer charges on non-Samsung branded chargers :-(.

    The icons shows that it is charging, but after 6 hours, the battery charge only increased by 5%. (that's less than 1% per hour!)

     

    None of my generic or other brands (iPhone, Nokia or Canon) charger will work. They used to.

    If you cannot find your Samsung original charger, you can use your notebook USB port. That works.

    I have not yet tried the USB port in the car.

     

    Is it a bug, or is it by design to force us to use the Samsung charger?
