Hi guys, using the phone last one month, the worst part is the battery draines very fast ! The culprit is the screen which eats 30% easily !
Moreover not very happy with this phone and the radiation to body is high. NO justification for the price high priced low performance phone !
why the front camera not good and not clear ?
how can i solve the problem ?
Which phone should I buy and why, they are same price in my country.
Huawei P10 Lite (in my country this phone have 3GB RAM) or Samsung A5 2017?
NileshG, 30 Apr 2017Using this phone from last 10 days. There is connectivity problem when 4G is selected..phone d... moreWho said it has polycarbonate back ? I asked Samsung Customer Service and they said A5 (2017) has Gorilla Glass 4 back.
i had the phone since like 1 month and i use it all the time
the battery is amazing and i hope it stay like this
i will just mention the cons
1) the front camera is good for 1 or 2 persons selfie. i think it lacks autofocus therefor everyone who is far from the person who is talking the selfie will be not be good
2) the front camera lackness of OIS make it very hard to take pictures at night due to vibrations
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
