After reading the reviews I still find the A5 2017 as a bit of an enigma and mystery. Excellent battery life, Great water resistance powers, weird but somewhat "loud enough" speakers, smoother/better Grace UX and that's about it i think. The camera is bland and lacking contrast/vibrancy (even the J5 2017 seem to be better in some way with people saying it has some kind of stabilisation in its camera) and the screen seem to hover around the cooler side though I heard you can control the contrast under Settings but does it really work? If these issues were not present then the A5 2017 would be a formidable mid-range. But what do you guys think? I'm thinking of getting one but these issues are off-putting.
Allexis, 23 Jul 2017Hello. Does A5 2017 dual sim really has dedicated slot for SDcard? I mean, it doesnt use SIM2 ... moreYes, it has two trays - first for SIM1, second for SIM2 plus micro sdxc card (at the same time).
Hello can any one tell me what is the meaning of nougat 7.1.1 vs 7.0.1 .
The A5 2017 has a very poor camera. The taken images, in low light conditions, are blurred and even not clear. This is the biggest inconvenience. Otherwise is a good and nice smartphone.
The Samsung HQ should solve this BIG lack of A5 2017. If they would respect the customers.
I have a Xperia z5 compact and im thinking about changing it to this one A5, or iPhone SE, do you think it's worth it?
Allexis, 23 Jul 2017Hello. Does A5 2017 dual sim really has dedicated slot for SDcard? I mean, it doesnt use SIM2 ... moreYes, it is true! U can use 2 Sims and SDcard at the same time. I've bought A5 2017 some days ago after A7 2016 and I like new model.

In case of S7 you have to CLICK home key but for A5 sensor you have to only TOUCH it even when screen is off! It is much more convenient for one hand work!!
Hello. Does A5 2017 dual sim really has dedicated slot for SDcard? I mean, it doesnt use SIM2 slot for SDcard, I can use 2 sim cards and SDcard together, or...? Thanks for answer.

Does the A5 2017 actually (and secretly) have EIS when video recording at 1080p? I also heard the camera quality in normal daylight is somewhat dull and bland and that low-lights are awful (having no image stabilisation) and worse than older and cheaper phones like the Moto G4 or even the iPhone SE. True?
I'm trying to research whether if there is truth to the news that the fingerprint scanner of the A5 2017 is faster than the S7?
And if you were to choose between the Exynos 7870 of the A5 vs the Snapdragon 430 of the new Nokia 5 and the Snapdragon 617 of the old Moto G4 which you think is better in overall performance & speed?
Are there any signs of app reloading and poor multitasking on the A5 2017?
Stuart Reeves, 16 Jul 2017It's a Gorilla Glass. Optical Image Stabilization. A feature that allow us to capture video without or less shaking while we on moving conditions.
