Samsung hopefully someday will realize that their software is just below par. A competent hardware, stylish looks, dedicated SIM & memory card slots, useful UI features, almost all the bells & whistles of S7 series with a waterproof body let massively down by stuttering and lag which is more frequent as time passes by! (Rear) Camera should have OIS at the asking price because photo quality too disappoints. All in all, amazing premium phone let down severely by performance and camera. Using it for a month and now experiencing lag while making or receiving calls. Reboot a day do help but camera needs extremely steady hands to get anything worth. Hopeful of Nougat to at least take care of performance. Overall 2.5/5 if anyone is looking to buy. Fixed focus selfie camera seems a controversial move as I don't use it much but aware of hardware limitations. Surprisingly J5 prime used by my dad is more usable. Example, this one has 400-600 MB RAM free while J5 Prime has 1 GB mostly for similar usage pattern (light users)

dheeraj3103, 28 Jul 2017I give 10 out of 10 in looks I give 10 out of 10 in performance but in durability I give... moreSo you're giving it a 1 on 10 because it's slippery? Lol, a phone being slippery has got nothing to do with durability. Also, almost all phones in the market right now have glass/metal designs, like the A5.
I bought A5 2017 a week ago but when i full charge it give me the 25hr estimated time and on 50% it gives 12hr estimated time but i saw on youtube that the estimated time is 35hr on 75% battery and their max power saving cross 100hr so why my phone battery is not good i am not a heavy user only browsing and my phone is on 20% brightness all the time and the overnight drain time is 5-7% in 8hr and i have not installed fb app and much more i have installed only 6-7 apps in phone but my battery is not going good plzz tell me the solution ??I have bought A520F/DS from pak

I am using this since 2 months, the side pannel are made of matel which is so slippery also back pannel made of glass which is slippery too. it's like a 1 month baby which will never grow up. so take care
my advice - use cover, phone ring, bacouse glass will break after drop of "2 feet".
or don't buy if you are ruff user.
