i hope they release oreo now.. im still waiting for it before i buy this. sadly it starting to keep the stock of this phone in my city.
I have my A5(2017) close to 4 months now and wished I left it at the store. The phone at first seemed fast compared to my s3 yet now it's a dog, taking a few videos using my phone are no where to be seen. My internet has slowed down to a crawl.
Very disappointed in the phone and would NEVER recommend the a5(2017) phone to nobody not even my worst enemy.
Khaled, 07 Feb 2018i'am about to get this phone.. does it worth buying? and what about the front camera?The phone you're getting (As I'm sure you have discovered by this point) is well worth getting. It is honestly one of my favorite phones to sell because of what you get with it. Basically, it is the best bang for your buck! It is comparable to the Samsung Galaxy S7, though sacrificing 1 GB of RAM and 4K video recording. The camera is gorgeous and the phone runs very well. I hope you enjoy your new phone!

YOU CAN BUY A GALAXY J5 2016 with an Amoled Display and look at how cheap those devices sell.
Mon EL, 05 Feb 2018I too am on nov patch . Din get any update after nov.Check for update manually please
Manoharanunni, 05 Feb 2018no security patch after november on my galaxy a5 2017 sm-a520fit will arrive in these couple of days.
I received January update but still no face filters for camera (similar to snapchat).
Any idea ?
Huawei p10 lite is far better than this one, on design, interface and camera... Even the fingerprint sensor is better
Omo Atob, 05 Feb 2018What do you mean? Because have updated to January security patch I too am on nov patch . Din get any update after nov.

It's actually better than some flagships that come with IPS LCD displays, and even some with AMOLEDs, like the Pixel 2XL and LG V30.
And if you may have noticed, micro USB is disappearing from new phones, only entry level and low end phones. USB C is way more convenient and durable, no reason why you shouldn't get those. Just because they're not as common as micro USB yet doesn't mean you should avoid them. Micro USB will be obselete soon.
