Just my crappy luck, finally had time and money to buy this phone.
Check stores and boom no more stock even tho they still have on display phone
All store i checked is out of stock. Bye2 Dream Phone probably gonna wait out new phone to come.
i Have A5 2017 and have problem with wifi signal. Maybe know why. If i lput my second hand on top of phone (viewing internet, watching youtube, playing games etc.) and hold phone with both my hands, the signal is almost imidiately much more worst, sometimes lost. Whe i get hand out, its return to strong signal of wifi. Its really bad and problém with construction. Maybe its only my phone, dont try another one.

And with F.C 90-100minutes. I turned it off few minutes after unboxing new phone, and maybe 2 times I was loading on Fast Charge just to see is it workin. I hope it will improved battery life after one year of charging.
