Got this phone last January and am still using it now. I'm even using it as i am creating this review. I'm not very good with the specs but based on my experience. This is phone is very good in terms of speed (opening apps, for example) bec i can compare it since i'm an S4 user before. The camera is superb especially the rear camera during daylight and outside. Very clear and sharp photos. Indoor and night shots are ok, can be solved w/ flash (same issue even w/ the flagship phones). Not so happy w/ front camera. Still very clear and sharp outside and daylight. Having problems with focus, it only focus the face nearest to camera during selfies.
The physical look of the phone is definitely beautiful. If you're on a budget and couldn't afford the flagship phones but would like to have a sleek and elegant phone, this one's for you. Also, the speaker is also well placed. Located at the upper right side of the phone.
Using this phone from last 10 days. There is connectivity problem when 4G is selected..phone doesn't look as premium as is claimed in review. Polycarbonate back is to be blamed for the same. Overall good package. Good battery life. Smooth touch experience and excellent screen.
Hello this phone is good what problem is with network connection its jumping much between 3 G and 4 G many times problem with samsung mobile phones.I hade LG G 4 and it was no problem with connection.Now I have samsung A5 2017 and it is big problem with that.Not happy.Same with new galaxy s8.Why they not do bettre phone.
Talking about speakers sound quality & loudness, A better (i.e. less bland and more natural/contrasty and with a video stabilisation at 1080p @30fps) camera which one would win: Moto G5 Plus or this Galaxy A5 2017?
using the phone since 2 months. quite value for money. everything is fine. superb battery life. good screen. only drawback is average rear camera performance.
If you want superb camera performance then go for s7.
If you are hunky-dory with average camera performance then you may go with A5 2017
Ive notice that there is a sound notification in this phone whenever you receive unattended sms, emails, etc. on your phone, a sound with an interval of 20 sec. keeps on informing u, my question is how can off the sais sound notification tnxs
I'm gping to buy this phone. Is it fine ?
Name some mobiles of this range. I don't want to buy online .
AboHalima, 26 Apr 2017I bought the a5 2017 two weeks ago, the first week after I bought it the battery was very good... moreCheck if you have any application that drains your battery
if no connect with samsung maybe you have a defected unit
Does it have screen mirroring? I bought A5 2016 later found out it didn't have screen mirroring.
So i am thinking to upgrade over a5 2017
Yakuza, 28 Apr 2017A5 17 perfomance is better when considering its price.I hope a5 17 will get the update of the ... moreFrom what i read, by 11 April 2017 Nougat for A5 2017 is still being tested.

AlirezaN, 25 Apr 2017Let everyone do something for this. I have published this issue everywhere I could. Trying to ... moreI don't want to be pesimistic but since the A serie wil not be oficially launched in USA then I'm not sure Samsung will take seriusly our claims no matter how much noise we make about this issue. Almost every single review on Youtube and the web has addressed the problem with the focus on the front camera and Samsung has kept their mouths shut about it. Even the update to Android Nougat is almost a mistery... However the new J serie (wich will be launched in USA) will arrive with Nougat already installed.
