Hi how is the battery life in nougat compared to marshmallow? Is is the same or worse or better?
Is it lagging in nougat?
What means dedicated slot for memory? Is that means if I have single sim phone I have slot for micro sd card and If I have dual sim phone I can not use micro sd card?
John, 11 Mar 2018Which phone shall i purchase a7 2017 or A5 2017 If u have more budget and need bigger screen buy a7. But i think a5 is better on hand, its not too big
I just bought it yesterday for around USD 340 or IDR 4.400.000 in Indonesia.
So far i am very satisfied with A5.
Best experience about battery life now is 22:10 and i still have 38% not charge for all day and i haveused it all day. I thin is batter than Samsung S Series
Can anybody tell me seriously that should i purchase this mobile or not? Thanks
I haven't updated this phone since August 2017 (due to planned obsolescence paranoia after LG G4 bootloop). Anyone have any issues after an update?

Samsung doesn't allow SD cards to be used as internal storage. And moving compatible apps one-by-one to the SD card is not user friendly. Worse, the apps are moved to the internal storage when they are updated.

Not saying the AMOLED is bad. It's good, but a nice screen is not as useful if the phone lags. And considering the price Samsung is charging for these, I'm not happy. Even a cheaper Vivo feels less laggy. It's embarrassing. Samsung's RAM management is known to be poor, and can only be compensated by having at least 6GB of RAM (eg. The S9).
pika2000, 08 Mar 2018First of all, the Mi A1 is cheaper, like 3/4 the price of the A5 on the market. Second, yes, ... moreamoled = more battery life, more realistic colour than IPS. Samsung used Exynos processor (Exynos processor can more effective than qualcomm because samsung make exynos so they more know about system on this phone). A5 2017 have corning gorrila glass 4, MI A1 just corning G3. A5 have slot for SD card and dedicated slot, not like MI A1. RAM is not too much different and the performance is almost similar to 3gb
i used it for editing video, and sometimes for gaming. Its never lagged, maybe u got 5% freespace on your storage, u must used sd card. My storage internal leave 8gb, and no lag
pika2000, 08 Mar 2018More like you only use your phone like a dumbphone. Use it like a smartphone, it lags like crap.Other than heavy gaming, everything seems fine. Definitely not as stutter free as pure android because how clean and stock it is. And yeah for those who interested for this phone or A1, they better buy old (2years at most) flagship instead. They blow every other mid range offerings;

Second, yes, better performing hardware due to stock Android, plus more RAM and 64GB storage.
What's the point of Amoled screen if the phone lags? That's A5. The only good thing about it is that it's waterproof.
pokedna, 08 Mar 2018U got fake a5 2017. I never lagged with this phoneMore like you only use your phone like a dumbphone.
Use it like a smartphone, it lags like crap.
