Farhan Ahmad, 21 Aug 2017Hi guys, This is my first post here in GSMarena. My Samsung A5(2017), only 2 months used, can... morethe only thni yuo can is go to specialists in service. or maybe check with nother charer just in case of charer problem
Hi guys, This is my first post here in GSMarena. My Samsung A5(2017), only 2 months used, cannot be turned on. I tried all things, like pressing and holding the power and volume down keys simultaneously for 20 seconds, removing Chip and SD card, charging with original charger, but nothing happened.. The device was upgraded 2 days ago, and the problem of turn off occurred last night. before it was functioning normally. I woke up this morning and found my phone turned off. since then It cannot be turned On. please suggest me any solution.
Please help! What phone should I buy: this one (A5 (2017)) that in my country costs 300Â€, Huawei P9 (320Â€), Honor 8 (330Â€), Honor 8 Lite (200Â€), Huawei P10 Lite (255Â€), OnePlus 3T (415Â€), S7 (400Â€)? I'm not a heavy user (don't plan on playing a lot of games), so I don't really need a beast of a phone like OP3T or S7 is, just that it is reliable, not laggy, has nice display for surfing the web, watching videos, play music... Don't know what else to say :D Thanks in advance!
Elle, 18 Aug 2017Hi Im thinking about getting the samsung galaxy A5 but im not sure. The phone i currently ha... moreThe J5 2017 PRO is closer to the A5 2017 but still has some drawbacks. However (as an owner of an A5 2017) I suggest you to wait until the Android update (nougat version) for the A5 is installed on more devices to see on reviews if there are serius improvements on the cameras. There is no much that can be done with the selfie camera, but the main camera is in desperate need of some electronis stabilization because is snappy but is very common to get blurry pictures and shaky videos.
Migas69, 18 Aug 2017Hi guys. I haven´t dicided between this phone (galaxy A5 2017) and honor 9. I´m no... moreI'm not an expert about sound quality, but this phone's audio with headphones (once you calibrate them with the Adapt Sound assistant) is amazing. The speaker is not that good for music, but it works for gaming and watching videos.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2017But a5 2017. It is a better phone.Good overall phone for the price. It's fast. Has usb c and supports fast charging. Good size screen as well.
-camera is not good in low light
-Wifi can be flaky
-fingerprint sensor is crap
-still on Android 6
Ahmed1imran, 20 Aug 2017I didn't understand what to do can u please help me Fill the contact form and ask when you are gonna get Nougat.
Waiting for nougat update on my a5 2017 it is taking too damn long (a5 2016 has already got it months ago) it is really sad what samsung is doing for taking this long to bring it 😳
Here is the contact form. Ask them yourself!
[deleted post]Why don't you ask Samsung ? Send them an email with your quarry ! Don't you have anything better to do than spending time in Samsung's forums and posting stuff ? XD
Migas69, 20 Aug 2017HI everyone.
I´m undecided between Honor 9, Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and Samsung Galaxy... moreHi there,
First of all both smartphones are great choice, its up to you, which one you will get. Both of them got super amoled display but the A5 got a lower screen resolution hence longer battery life, of course if you are not a gamer or a very high user. They both look premium. There are lots of people complaining about the design of the new A series. I personally think the older A series looked more classy and premium, but that's just me.
On the A5 there is no 4K and OIS and the phone is a kind of fragile. Its got 16 mp rear and 16 mp front. In my opinion they are great but not as good as those taken on the S7.
Since the S7 is an year old device it costs less. Approximately as much as the new A5.
The battery on the A5 is better than the battery on the S7.
Either way you will be happy with your choice . :D
