Please need some advice. I have this phone since April and everything was fine and the battery was just excellent (was able to use for a day without charging it). Last week I made a mistake and let the phone's battery reach 6% 😓. Two days later I saw that the battery wasn't doing as good as usual. It wasn't able to stand more than 14h in the middle powee saving mode. I checked the magnum power saving mode and I was shocked to see that the maximum was only 35h while it was able to reach approximately 72h before.
Is there a way to get the battery back to Its glory or the only way is to change the battery. Thank you.
Why do people call it a midranger?? its not cheap at all! At this price segment its kind of a flagship smartphone but not a budget or a midranger XD!

2. Speakers are as loud as the S7.
3. Multitasking is quite good, apps reload rarely and I've never experienced slowdowns.
4. I believe it's got some kind of digital stabilization, even though it's not really good.

Would you say speakers are louder if not as loud as an iphone 6/6S/SE or Galaxy S6/S7?
SO when you have several apps opened on the multitasking does it not take time to reload? Does it load up instantly?
And when taking video at 1080p have you noticed the video is shaky? No stabilisation of any kind?

2. Camera quality isn't bad. Autofocus is fast but not the fastest. No problems with exposure. They could've added OIS, though.
3. Same can be said about almost every phone​ out there. All flagships of 2017 have glass-metal sandwich designs. Since I use a cover, it doesn't affect me.
4. I've faced no problems with multitasking.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2017All of them are good, but the A5 has the best battery life and display out of the group. My A... moreI appreciate no phone is ever perfect. I also appreciate the A5 (& the A3 2017) are also mid-range phones. I have read both phones have more than excellent battery life + water resistance, etc. But other my other concerns are:
1. USB Type-C only at 2.0 speeds?
2. Camera quality is bland, has slow autofocus, no image stabilisation & problems with exposure?
3. Slippery glass back/body?
4. Still no sign/news of Nougat 7.0 or 7.1.1?
5. Apps reload when using multitasking?
