I bought it yesterday. It already runs Android Nougat!
Works very well and it charges very well too. The only thing that I don't like it's the tempered glass but I am too clumsy not to use it. :/
Love the phone!!!

Can't call it an issue as well. It only focuses objects up to an arm length. Everything beyond arm length will be blurred like (but not totally like) a portrait mode effect. Perfect for one to three people, but not for a big group.

So I bought a film on eBay like the ones we used to buy before the tempered glass came out. They're very difficult to find in my country nowadays so had to buy it online

Finally got 7.0 . Awesome UI.,, Battery life same or improved. Can't find the different then before. Two days easily on moderate use.
2 weeks after the nougat update review from me.
The update interface looks great, changed alot.
But since then i have many flaws.
Phone become laggy. Facebook and whatsapp stop working frequently and have to restart the apps. lost data connection need to restart phone.
apart from that battery life still the same as before.
Super Presh, 03 Oct 2017From your day 1 to today is how many days, weeks, or months?Since June 2. I hate the tempered glass since it can't reach the curved part. It makes this phone feel cheap. And I can't touch the sides well. Feels better when I removed it.
EDIT: Wow. I'm amazed. I'm with this phone for 4 months. Seems like yesterday or just recently! I'm a satisfied A5 2017 user! :D
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2017Are u Nigerian? I'm also Nigerian. No sign of any Nougat. Itz so unfortunate. Yes I'm a Nigerian, using A5 2017 and not updated yet. Not so happy about it but not like the guy from Pakistan..lol

If you are putting it in your pocket, make sure that your phone is the only thing in your pocket. Otherwise, use a tempered glass or screen protector. Good luck finding a curved tempered glass though!

Watch durability videos done by JerryRigEverything. The only phone that can withstand more scratching is the U Ultra Sapphire edition.

Same problem with 2016 version. But those scratches are invisible on the screen. And sony uses stronger glass that scratches heavily at level 8 or 9 on mohs scale, comparing with samsung that level 7 is fatality.
Use a screen protector. Because you can't trust anything from this conpany.
it says its gorrila glass 4 but i dont get it my a5 2017 geting scratched by everythnig..... compared i had sony z5 couple years old with scratch-resistant glass. for around half year 0 scrathes at all.....
