Anonymous, 18 May 2017Stabilization has nothing to do with low-light colours, it's all in the apertureHello Anonymous,
Sorry, I am not familiar regarding apertures. My comment on the camera of A5 2017 is just based on my daily usage. I am just an average user and do not take photos often. I just tested the cam so I can reply Hils as I promised. Hope you can enlighten me regarding apertures. Overall, I love my A5 2017. It's a great phone.
Thanks for having some time.
Guys I need to know whether the a5 2017 gets any battery charging problems or any other side effects after putting it into the water
AnonD-571567, 13 May 2017Tell us when you eventually buy it.Hello Hils,
I just bought the A5 2017 last May 14. I am satisfied with it. The fingerprint scanner is not that fast but works and is an active one unlike the S6 which is passive (no need to press any buttons, just place your finger directly). Upon using wifi for hours, It doesn't feel so hot, only minimum (I put a jelly case on; the back is so slippery) but using mobile data may become hot sometimes but not much. I like the always on display but the icon seems a bit small for me (I still need to pickup the phone just to know if I have missed calls/messages). Led notification would be greater but it doesn't have one. I haven't tried hard gaming yet, but casual ones are ok with no lags. The camera is good if you hold it still but the front cam needs some practice using. It's also a bit heavy (as heavy as the J7 prime) but I adjusted to it. Over all it's a great phone especially if you prefer Samsung like me, and it feels premium.

Thank you so much for replying. I eventually bought the A5 2017 last May 14. I may say I am satisfied with it. S7 would have been my first choice but sadly it is no longer sold in my country, leaving me to only one choice; A5 2017.
front camera also 16mp, it is so powerful, video call must very clear. good phone

having bought it last week,I'm totally disappointing with the camera quality of A5 2017. Low light photos are terrible. you can see the noise even without zooming the picture. also the pictures appears to be artificially colored with unnatural colours. I had a S4 and regret switching to this one. I guess the high level of noise may be contributed by the absence of OIS. I blame GSMArena also for misleading photo comparisons presented. One more thing I've noted is that you'll have to have the display on for the fingerprint sensor to work. it would not wake to phone upon sensing the registered fingerprint.
I had to choose A5 over P9, as P9 became unavailable in the market upon the introduction of P10, which is way above my budget.

Is this phone good enough for gaming? My friend has a iphone 5s and it handles all games we play good. Is this a good choice? My Samsung galaxy core prime handles all games. Like they are playable but laggy. Its like vainglory.
