The camera allows you to set up a wide range of different shutter speeds, up to 1/45454, but does not allow you to capture photos with a few seconds of exposure. A simple software adjustment by Samsung would allow you to capture long exposure images that would make the night images much better. However, for this small detail the night images look horrible. This device also allows you to capture UHD videos. A small adjustment in the software and we could record in 4k, however Samsung blocked the capture in that resolution, and limited the camera to record in only 1080p. But still it is possible to force the capture in almost 4K using the Open Camera. RAW capture is also possible by performing only a small software change. Several important functions have been locked in the device software because Samsung does not want their customers to have anything of quality unless they buy a Galaxy s7 or s8. It is shameful to see how Samsung does not value its customers.
Is it made of metal or glass ? Is it kinda like high-end smartphone ?
Ive seen pictures and also videos on youtube , its back looks kind of glossy.
david.ph, 31 May 2017Supposed to be Gorilla glass 4! But mine got scratched after just 3months of careful use. Crap... moreBecause you weren't being careful? Corning never advertises their glass as scratch proof. You should be more careful, or get a screen protector.

PlainCharlie, 30 May 2017I have this phone and I really like it, well made and well thought out. I would give it 4.5/5 ... moreMaybe you didn't register your fingerprint properly. My A5's FP scanner works 95% of the time.
AnonD-666414, 30 May 2017Go and Watch drop tests of S7 with other devices..you wil see what i toldThat has got nothing to do with the actual display quality, aka contrast/brightness/etc. Most phones including the A5 are as fragile as the S7.
I have this phone and I really like it, well made and well thought out. I would give it 4.5/5 and then promptly deduct a full point for the absolute pathetic fingerprint reader. What a damned shame.
