AnonD-571567, 23 Apr 2017Why is everybody complaining about lack of optical image stabilization (ois) in this phone? Th... moreBecause the 2016 version has OIS but this one doesn't (you expect improvements on the next year's model, not cuts in features). And it doesn't have a software stabilization either, so the videos are very shaky. And while taking pictures at night its noticeable too the lack of it. To make things worse, the front camera is a complete waste of resources.
I'm pissed with Samsung too (I have this phone) but not for the answer (despite being an annoying one) but for the problem per se... Why did they put a 16 megapixels sensor with such a short focus and a "panorama selfie mode"?!?! If their concept of selfie is to take pictures so close to the face then put an 8 mp camera or even a 5 mp one! And the money saved would be used for an OIS for the main camera or at least a floating sistem like the one used for the front camera so the videos were less shaky.
Beautiful flagship like design, fits great in my hand due to the curved edges in the back. The battery life is great(I'm a moderate user) so a full charge goes for 2 whole days with no problem. As an ex iphone user I'm really satisfied with this phone except with how sensitive the touch is, especially on the edges. These things never happened on my iphone, it really feels like Samsung should up their game when it comes to the phone actually detecting when I'm just holding the phone in my palm and not actually trying to use the touchscreen. I've also had a very very few front camera glitches when trying to take a selfie in the Messinger app only, I'm guessing that is a software problem so I'm confident it will go away.

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
