Guys after a day and a night trying to decide over a refurbed unlocked s7 and a new A5 2017, The idea of a fresh new battery, decent performance, Water resistance, and c port, I finally decided the main issue was the video recording which I do not do anyway, I suspect that software can fix this issue more than likely and at 339 pricepoint with a non branded factory unlocked clean phone I think its worth the money, pulled the trigger this AM :)
The refurbed s7's may be a bargain at 360 ish but the battery may be less from use, the WR may be affected from abuse and quite frankly it may have scratch where it may drive me nuts personally. so New is better in my case. I need long battery life for the work I do.

Im too dissapointed whenever i called i always experince drop call .i bought it brand new and for 3wiks experience i am not satisfied for always drop my call my god
jujuspy, 23 Jan 2017I think 2016 Design is better than this one..I think A5 6 look best in one

What this rev surprisingly didnt tell you and some other around the net did is....
This phone actually has NO video stabilisation...
gianni, 22 Jan 2017Will the screen flicker like the old models with amoled. I am using A5 (2016) and i don't see any screen flickering.
i need Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 is support screen mirroing.
i have sony smart tv this Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 support?
Please tell me.
A recent Twitter post made by @Dgadgetin revealed the possibility of the presence of OIS in the camera, at least in the Indonesian unit. I have yet to hear anything from Samsung about this, though.
Why I the world it doesn't come with infrared port? I need it to replace my remote controllers.
Tourettes Guy, 22 Jan 2017Phew! I thought I was the only one asking for itBut it has always on display?

As the ex owner of Galaxy A5 2015, and current owner of Galaxy A5 2016, I can say there are improvements all over the place.
But, I'm still not sure about upgrade to A5 2017. Although, better front camera, always on display and some other cool stuff seems very atractive I´m not very positive about its looks. I like more square look of A5 2015/2016 over the rounded look of A5 2017.
Not liking the shape of the new A-Series. They are more like looking like their S-Line now with the rounder edges.
jujuspy, 23 Jan 2017I think 2016 Design is better than this one..yeah. the 2016 loooks more rectangular. 2017 looks cheap and "girly".
