hi can this phone be use in Singapore for dual sim? as now all dual sim phones with 2G connection has been canceled. Is this a good phone as I'm only using this for calls and text only as my one sim is Singapore base and the other one is overseas.
any phone you can recommend 4G 3G dual sim. Max budget is $450.

Anonymous, 22 Apr 2017Wich is better a5 2017 or huawei p9?P9 has far better processor than a5 it's obvious considring p9 is a flagship device like the s7 from samsung compared to the midrange a5
Screen may be slightly better on the a5 considring it's super amoled but no bigger diffrence
The camera quality goes to the p9
P9 is fully metal unlike a5 which has glass back
The software I think better on the samsung although the last nouget update on Huawei made substantial changes
Lastely a5 has a dedicated micro SD slot besides 2 nano sim slots while p9 has a hybrid sim slot
DON'T buy this phone! And let everyone knows anywhere you can! Here is Samsung official funny reply to front camera focus issue:
"WeÂ’re sorry you are unhappy with the fixed focus on the Galaxy A5Â’s front-facing camera. This camera is optimised for Selfie Mode and should be used when you are taking pictures of objects or people between 20 and 50cm from the lens. For pictures outside of this range, you can make use of the rear camera that makes use of photodiodes and auto-focus. You can also set a voice control for your photos by going to Camera App > Settings > Voice Control > Toggle On. Let us know how you get on."
Really funny! They justify their fault by telling us to take close selfies only!! Guys, let the world know about it!

Anonymous, 22 Apr 2017Not sure what u mean touching home button. If not click what u mean that this active scanner, ... moreYes . Active fingerprint scanner even without touching the home button (fingerprint scanner) my phone opened by itself
Why is everybody complaining about lack of optical image stabilization (ois) in this phone? There are lots of phones out there without this feature and yet most of them have very picture qualities.
