Why is everybody complaining about lack of optical image stabilization (ois) in this phone? There are lots of phones out there without this feature and yet most of them have very picture qualities.

Well... Got my A5 2017. Mixed feelings. First thing pissed me off is the fingerprint scanner! It was crap on my S6 edge and is worse on A5. Then there's the difference btwn apps. It seems to me that apps from Galaxy App store are somehow smoother than apps from Play Store.
Next thing is the "bloatware" - no option to uninstall crap like Facebook and other apps. At least there's an option to disable them, but still... Otherwise the phone performs ok. A little trick/advice to other user/owners : enable Developer menu and switch Animations to 0 and reduce Apps running in background to 3 or less. After this the phone performance is highly increased and is much snappier with no lags. So far no heating issues.
