  1. I have updated my galaxy a7 from 5.0.2 to 6.0.1 but after updating I get a message like “update google play services” in the dropdown toolbar. I couldn’t have access to play store, it said connection timed out retry but I could open Gmail app, play books, play movies,youtube.I contacted google, they said me to remove my google account and I did so. Now I couldnt add my google account again, everytime I try to add it takes my email id and says there seems some error. I have tried logging in with different mail ids but in vain. Please help. Is anyond else facing duch a problem?
    I contacted samsung too they said I need a factory reset.

    • Looks like you have badly messed up the Google Play services, you should have waited for the GP to update by leaving it connected for more time.
      Only option is do a full factory reset (detel cache and dalvik too from the recovery mode.)
      You should be up and running
