And yes, A5 DOES have gorilla glass 4. No false advertisements from Samsung.

I also have a Huawie Honor 6 from 1year and half ago, but the screen has not scratched. But this Galaxy A5 (2017) I have been using for only 4 months SCRATCHED and samsung is saying its Gorilla Glass 4! Is Samsung kidding me?!!!
Gino76, 31 May 2017Is it true there is no image stabilisation (even electronic) feature on the camera of the A5 &... moreThere is a small digital stabilization, but it is not efficient. Making videos while walking will make the image very shaky. The quality of the photographs is superior to last year's model, but the night images are not good. The post-processing is not good, it seems that there is a lot of software to reduce the noise at night, this causes the images to lose their naturalness and look like paintings. The light tones are very bursting, the blue of the sky sometimes turns white. Sharpness is also very hard, especially when zooming in on images, which causes details to be lost. But you can capture photos with much higher quality, just download the AZ Camera apk and configure it to capture in RAW. As RAW capture is not natively supported by A5 2017, RAW photography when opened in Photoshop will turn pink, but just correct the colors and make a few adjustments and you will have a photograph with almost professional quality. The images are incredibly soft and light, it's almost sweet.
Hai..im very happy with this model..for me its very excellent..but i have one problem, why my picture that taken by camera said "this file type is not supproted"? The image that i have taken is saved to memory card..when im taken the picture and save to the device nothing problem..is it because the memory card problem? Thanks for your help
Is it true there is no image stabilisation (even electronic) feature on the camera of the A5 & A3 2017? Would you say the camera is better than last year's model in terms of quality, contrast, saturation & brightness (especially in low-light)? Speakers any good?

They never said it can withstand that, but I've seen JerryRigEverything's videos of him using razor blades on GG phones, they never got scratched. But things like fine sand can still scratch it.
"If little things and normal careful handling of your phone without pouch or any protection should get it scratched so easily, what's the essence of shouting Gorilla Glass?"
GG3, GG4 and GG5 all have same level of scratch resistance. All they they have been improving is the durability of the glass. I heard GG5 can withstand drops from shoulder-height.
And the benefits of GG over other glasses? Well, it's more durable than the rest.
My old moto g had GG3, never used any sort of screen guard for it, and it never got scratched. Only because I was careful.

Ok you said they didn't promise scratch proof, and obviously they didn't promise shatter proof either, so what's the advantage of having gorilla Glass on your device instead of other ordinary glasses?

Well I want to purchase this phone. Can anyone suggest me about this phone. I'm really confused after heard bad reviews. So do suggest me what should I do?
The camera allows you to set up a wide range of different shutter speeds, up to 1/45454, but does not allow you to capture photos with a few seconds of exposure. A simple software adjustment by Samsung would allow you to capture long exposure images that would make the night images much better. However, for this small detail the night images look horrible. This device also allows you to capture UHD videos. A small adjustment in the software and we could record in 4k, however Samsung blocked the capture in that resolution, and limited the camera to record in only 1080p. But still it is possible to force the capture in almost 4K using the Open Camera. RAW capture is also possible by performing only a small software change. Several important functions have been locked in the device software because Samsung does not want their customers to have anything of quality unless they buy a Galaxy s7 or s8. It is shameful to see how Samsung does not value its customers.
Is it made of metal or glass ? Is it kinda like high-end smartphone ?
Ive seen pictures and also videos on youtube , its back looks kind of glossy.

hello3772, 31 May 2017Xperia x cpu faster and better then a5 2017 cpu ??It is slightly faster, and better in terms of performance. But the A5's chip is much more energy efficient.
DNF ROX, 31 May 2017Look S6 battery life and free space of ram after Nougat update..Only for some users, which usually happens. Doing a SW reset fixes them.
