Lots of people Comparing A5 6 A5 7 here is honest opinion
DESIGN ===== A5 2016 Wins
LOOK=======A5 2016 Wins
SPEED ===== A5 2017 Wins
Camera ===== I think 45 55 here Because A5 2017 lacks OIS Still A5 2017 Have Edge Rear Camera
Software Features ===== A5 2017 With Nougat Definitely Wins
Display ====== Both Are same As i used A5 2016 i think its color are little bit sharper and better 51_49 here
This is my Opinion....

Touchwiz UI is awesome which i got with 7.0
Nougat update is taking more than too long. I'm tired of the marshmallow.
Ronny, 25 Aug 2017Hi guys I updated my A5 2017 to android 7.1 yesterday and i am from Germany. Hi Ronny did you get on Germany Android Nougat on A5 2017 please tell me something about it it's Android 7.0 or 7.1 and is it like Galaxy S8?

Also, the Nougat update for A 2016 is useless. Still the old crapwiz UI, no basic Nougat features such as blue light filter, and so on. Even though the new A 2017 series got the update late, at least we get the new features.

The previous generation of the A series looks and feels better in hand and its more reliable. One more thing!
The A series 2016 got Nougat much faster than this year series.
I am not talking here(right now) about speed updates etc. I am talking about personal preference. Learn to respect others's opinions!

This is exactly what you're doing. You know A5 2017 has more RAM and faster processor, but still say a5 2016 is faster. Since this is purely objective, it's not based on opinions.

The A5 2016 is the better option but this is again my own opinion!

I like only samsung mobile but only the problem samsung is very slow on software updates. I want my phone is updated 7.0 nougat samsung experience 8.1.
What happened to the picture widget? Why did they delete it? Can I install it somehow?

With IP protection, i can safely use my phone during rain or while even at the shower, for example.
And RAM is more important than the CPU or GPU for day to day performance. 2GB RAM of the A 2016 just doesn't cut anymore, it'll be a bottleneck for most games and multitasking. A5 2017 is obviously faster in this regard.
And design is subjective. Some may prefer the design of the A5 2017 over 2016 and vice versa. But the A5 2016 feels like a slab of glass, whereas A5 2017 feels so much better on hand thanks to the curved glass.
Samsung should increase internal memory to 64 gb for a5 2017 at the same price.
Hello I live in Bangladesh, I have Samsung A5 2017 (A520F Dual SIM Global) I still didn't get any Nougat update, Can anyone please help me by telling that when I'll get the update? Or any probable date?

The S8 doesn't look bad.
