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.

I am frustrated between A5 2017 and Huawei P10 lite , which one is better and why ?
Should activate device security malware or not? maybe use more battery

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.
My review of A5:
Good rear camera
Good battery life
Jerky video & blurry front camera
Incoming call gets turned off without notice
Average touch sensitivity
