Just buy the S7 or even other brands like Huawei, they're cheaper plus the have the fingerprint reader on a SENSIBLE location.
Purchase a 2016 flagship instead of this. It costs more or less the same.
4k recording please with slo mo and 60fps.
That will be best steal ever
Finally someone with correct mind designed Samsung phone. I hope s9 will have that proper finger print sensor location too.
The S series is just 100Â€ pricier!
The A series has only 1 big advantage - the battery!
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2017It's going to have AOD so no notification LED.Literally the only turnoff on the A series for me. If they add a notification LED then I'd buy one right damn now.
A 2018 hardware looks outdated. First nougat in February 2018 when every phone will be on oreo? Then 7/8/10nm chips flagship phones will be out in spring/summer. Then Samsung own j series will be out with new 11nm chips and Oreo...
SaRPeR, 26 Sep 2017No, the equivalent of the A series 2018 is the Galaxy S7 not S6. A5 2017 is already nearly on ... moreA5 cpu is similar to SD625. That is almost as powerful as the 801.
A5 2017 is about 30% weaker than s6
ALPHABOY17, 26 Sep 2017Good joke. A5 2017 on par s5. A5 2016 on par s4 and a5 2015 on par with s3. Yes, the hardware maybe on par with those flagship, but the user experience that samsung give on new phone is on another level compared to those flagship. The UI on s3, s4, and s5 was horrible and full of bloatware.
I have to say that i really hate touchwiz, but Grace UX was really good that can be compared to ios design UI. And now they use Dream UX which is good if you love simplicity.
Five Star, 26 Sep 2017Samsung copying Huawei with fingerprint under the camera.
They tried to switch it up but pe... moreAnd what has hauwei come Up with that's so original?.
At least Samsung have come up with their own unique design language. The Huawei is just another iphone chinese clone, even the mate 9 porche edition is a rip off of the note 7 with its curved glass and symetrical design.
Samsung has popularised the use of curved glass w/ metal frames (apple started it but samsung definitely refined it), waterproofing thats treackled down to their midrange phones, fast and wireless charging, Samsung pay, Large phones, Minimal bezels. They may not created these features but they were one of the first to put it all together in their flagships and since then everyone has followed suit.
All companies take inspiration from each other, especially in such a massive and competitive industry, just get over it.
Sunny, 26 Sep 2017A5 18 should have full metal body without sacrificing waterproofing.?? lt is easier to make full metal body waterproof than glass and sandwich design.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2017Dont buy this. A series is like 3 years behind S series in processing power. So the equivalent... moreNo, the equivalent of the A series 2018 is the Galaxy S7 not S6. A5 2017 is already nearly on par with S6.

A3 2018 should follow the same footsteps of a5 2018 and a7 2018 that would be great.
Samsung copying Huawei with fingerprint under the camera.
They tried to switch it up but people hated it so now they got no option but to copy their biggest threat in the Android space lol
Well, A series always seems like a lite version of S series except it always designed better since its comes out a little bit late after S series. When i read the title i thought it said fingerprint reader under infinity display. Lol. If that is true we all would be so mad right now after buying Note8 and S8. But that fingerprint reader under the camera is also good news though. Good enough to be consider better than it being beside the camera.
