Well... Got my A5 2017. Mixed feelings. First thing pissed me off is the fingerprint scanner! It was crap on my S6 edge and is worse on A5. Then there's the difference btwn apps. It seems to me that apps from Galaxy App store are somehow smoother than apps from Play Store.
Next thing is the "bloatware" - no option to uninstall crap like Facebook and other apps. At least there's an option to disable them, but still... Otherwise the phone performs ok. A little trick/advice to other user/owners : enable Developer menu and switch Animations to 0 and reduce Apps running in background to 3 or less. After this the phone performance is highly increased and is much snappier with no lags. So far no heating issues.

Is any of yo... moreI don't see any scratch on my A5 2017's back, I'm using this for almost two months now and so far it's a great device with amazing battery life, I got free neon flip case with this phone and I carried it whenever I'm outside but in home I never use any protective things for it.
Those of you using this phone, is it true that that the back scratches so easily? Is any of you using it without a protective casing or must I put it in a case if I'm going to use it?
Efraim, 21 Apr 20172015 samsung s6 is way better than this.Battery life of S6 is not good. A5 2017 has grace UX which is much lighter than touchwiz and is lag free. IP68 certified, dual sim support and dedicated micro sd card, USB type C , active fingerprint scanner etc are the added features of A5 2017
I used 2 sim cards when I travel and have problems receiving calls in some countries. Maybe it is not suitable to use 2 sim cards. Is huawei better for 2 sim cards ?
AnonD-663366, 21 Apr 2017hello people Can anybody tell me if this phone has any Heating problems? It does not have any heating problems.
Not so good phone. Problem detecting SIM cards. Phone freezes after talking for few minutes.
AnonD-663366, 21 Apr 2017hello people Can anybody tell me if this phone has any Heating problems? Nope, Iam very satisfied with this phone from my previous phone that had heating problem. This blow my mind that previously I think every phone will heating if used to gaming, youtube, browsing and that's perfectly normal :lol:. After I had this phone I had conclusion that's my narrow minded.
hello people Can anybody tell me if this phone has any Heating problems?
AnonD-661352, 12 Apr 2017Hello, can anybody give sample shots of Galaxy A5 (2017) whether it can capture images like mi... moreI'm pretty sure you can achieve it with this phone if we consider that the capture in the example is far from being a high resolution picture and was taken with a phone that doesn't have OIS and the aperture is f/2.0. If you want a better low light camera go for a Google Pixel (you don't need the XL, is the same camera). It's the best on the market right now. But if you can't afford the price difference, the A5 will do the trick. However, if you need more features on the manual mode like shutter speed and focus, the software provided by Samsung won't let you control those parameters. I don't know if a thirdparty app will let you access those features. You'll have to do that research.
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2017is it big?? or A3 one.It's not too big (here in this web you can see the size of the phoe) but if your priority is the size and need a compact phone, go for the A3. The hardware is very limited (only 2 Gb of ram and 16 of rom, no NFC) compared to A5 but is not a slow phone.
AnonD-536841, 15 Apr 2017yes bro i agrred. but still i m hoping for any updates to fix this issue. otherwise there... moreThat's the only real issue i've found in this phone: The focal on the front camera is too short! Only close selfies get focused. Why Samsung included a Panorama Selfie mode if the hardware doesn't catch it? And the worst part is that it can't be fixed because that is related to the calibraton of the lens and that can't be corrected by software. So is a mayor flaw in this phone.
