Google's own Google Docs app opens older doc files.
I am wondering which Office app you installed though, as higher Samsung phones always have a license for the excellent Polaris Office (buy for other ppl, free for most Samsung Galaxy's), and I've never had problems with Polaris.

Hi  janhoedt,

As "Kimputer" says it is correct i too have inbuilt doc viewer in my samsung device, i did not face any issues like you have.

Though you may try this android app to view doc files.

One More if you feel use of the app is not good try this too.

Thanks & Regards,
