Sam user, 05 Apr 2017Finger print scanner is accurate . I did not face any issues. I rescaned fingers more than 20 times and now I think it is working ok. It is still slow, but at least works most the time, only few times a day needed to enter pin code.

Guys, is the front camera focus issue a serious one? I want to purchase this phone but all reviews give a negative point to front camera focus...Most say the distance should be close and at hand length distance the face or faces could be blurred!
I love this phone. Its fast and waterproof but most importantly cheap. For 350$ you get an S7/S7Edge like experience. I recommend this phone to anyone looking to buy a midrange phone!

AnonD-651910, 06 Apr 2017It's better than the A5s ?I think they are the same, by built quality, moto display is larger, have bigger battery that lasts longer, and intel snapdragon 625 chip is about as the samsung a5. So they are comparable. I didnt bought moto z at first because in tests they show that moto z play camera have bundle effect, but actually samsung a 5 have reversed bundle effect at the corners, so there is no difference then for me.
Im using this phone now... good thing about this device is the battery life...last me for one whole day....screen is good.smooth browsing.importantly water and dust proof...bad things is no ois as when taking photo have to be really steady.focusing slow. Quality of photo only good in the day. Back panel no corning gorilla glass as it can scratch easily.

I believe you have purchased this device from an authorized Samsung dealer. As far as i know ,all the A5 2017 devices have received the security patches in March 2017.
