Tan123, 06 Apr 2017It's better than the A5s ?I think they are the same, by built quality, moto display is larger, have bigger battery that lasts longer, and intel snapdragon 625 chip is about as the samsung a5. So they are comparable. I didnt bought moto z at first because in tests they show that moto z play camera have bundle effect, but actually samsung a 5 have reversed bundle effect at the corners, so there is no difference then for me.
Im using this phone now... good thing about this device is the battery life...last me for one whole day....screen is good.smooth browsing.importantly water and dust proof...bad things is no ois as when taking photo have to be really steady.focusing slow. Quality of photo only good in the day. Back panel no corning gorilla glass as it can scratch easily.

How there be last year pach in this year phone? And sometimes calls are not clear, im not hearing clearly what is said to me, but not always, have a y idea???
A series in 2017 especially A5 was going to take a next step performance at all, good to hear. from dept look for a processor, Galaxy A5 can still handle heavy apps or heavy games. Up to 1900MHz clockspd that's was great, balanced for the price too
So about the screen inches A5 will get little more bigger than the original Galaxy S7.
Worth to have this phone, also has a great camera
