AnonD-436380, 02 May 2018Dear A5 2017 users,
Hi. I am interested on this mobile, please could you give some details ... moreI had this phone for month or so and my biggest complaint so far is that phone feels uncomfortable in my hand. Previously I mostly had Sony phones and didnt had such problems. Maybe I will get use to it with time.
Since I don t really like playing games on phones I only tried few of them. Mostly trending ones. It run all of them smoothly except for one - PUBG mobile. I don t know if it is problem with poor game optimization or phone simply can t handle it. I play on lowest graphics and I get like 20 fps on average. Maybe with Oreo update and further optimization it will run better but right now it is a mess.
Camera is quite good but you dont care about that as you said.
All around solid mid range phone but specs are a bit too weak for price.
Dear A5 2017 users,
Hi. I am interested on this mobile, please could you give some details about the pros and cons of this unit? How about its capacity on playing games? the battery? i really dont care about the camera. i am more on the inside and the performance.
Galaxy a5 2017 or zenfone 3 ze520kl? I really like water resistant that ip68, better with 16mpx selfie camera, super Amoled display but zenfone 3 has better rear camera, same 16mpx but advanced pdaf camera (laser af sounds promising), 4k video and snapdragon 625 sounds little better than exynos 7880 on a5. Guys please help me, which one the best buy? Pleazzz.

mi, 30 Apr 2018https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/galaxy-a5/SM-A520F/ for now it's only 2 countries on sa... morenot accurate enough to say you can trust the pages because some other countries are reporting to get the update gradually
For the average user the A5 is all you need and at a great price. I've had mine for over a year. Great display and most of what you get from the a8 but at least half the price.

Just updated my A5 2017,so far no issue.The biggest change I noticed is the battery performance did significantly improved and the AOD can be customized.At first I turn on AOD and unplugged after full charge and then after 10 minutes of use the battery still at 100%.Unless heavy gaming I have no words.Camera user interface became like of S9.The conclusion is the battery life (standby time) did significantly improved,by a lot!
Ng, 01 May 2018Oreo is out on Malaysia, 1259MBWhat is your experience so far
In age of modern world a company worth 400 billion dollar don't deliver updates on time shame that they user old technique to update Devices one device update takes months to complete. Just shame why not they r investing some money on software dept, if samsung release smartphone phones with reasonable price and fast updates bo one will beat them, why not they are improving it...
