I have a5 2017 for a month ans all I can say is wow!
1.with medium usage it can live up to 24-26 hours (few games but with wifi browsering)
2 Camera!! It's gorgeous. 16mp both back amd front. The selfies are superb.
3 3gb ram, no lag no heating
4 It lools like a flagship. The phone it.s beautiful
1 there is no led for notifications but tou have the always on mode butbis drains a bit your battery
2 The camera doesnt have OIS or optical.image stabilisaton !!
3 you need a case for the back. It leaves prints
So if you dont have the budget for s7/8 or iphone or huawei p10 or dont need the ultimate specs, this my friends is a very nice, powerful and good looking phone that in my opinion will stand for at least 2 years

What i hate from this phone are:
1. Sceen oversensitive. So many unpurpose touch. Even with a leather case you still can use the touchscreen(not just respond directly to you finger)
2. Ultimately slow fingerprint phone. sometime it not read you finger correctly and cause autolock for 30second. Poor than xiaomi fingerprint.
A big 2 fatal (unnecessary) mistake in this us $400 price segmen . What a shame. I do Regret to buy this phone.

I switched from Google LG Nexus 5X to Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 (SM-A520F/DS). The overall performance is really great, it has bright display, good ram management, and the fingerprint sensor is super fast. Other than that, the battery life is awesome, I got up to 9 hours on screen time and left with 30% when I got back to home. However, the major issue is the camera , it lack of OIS, and hopefully the future updates can fix the problem.
Someone tell me where is the haptic feedback on Galaxy A5 2017. I can't find it.
