I have had my Samsungs A5 for 2 years. Today when it was fully charged it would not perform at all. I turned it off to see if that would correct the problem. It will not turn back on now. Any suggestions. So frustrated. No way to contact my home
Well, I am using it for 2 years now. I can say, this phone survived fresh water, rain and even salt water (I have been recording underwater videos many times). Pretty fast, 3 GB RAM is very good for multitasking and high performance. The only and I mean ONLY bad thing is the Main Camera. It;s good on daily light but It is REALLY bad at night and there is no OIS and no 2k or SloMo video. The front camera is good but there is no focus, it's a fixed focus camera on about 50cm.
Yesterday it was a 170mb patch, security update January 1. No changes in phone workin. I'll se in next days is all ok.
Samsung A7 2017 got the update so I think we have hopes! https://m.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_a7_2017_surfaces_on_geekbench_running_android_pie-news-35033.php

I went from A5 2017 to A8 2018 and the phone is the best approaching S8 display is brilliant better than the A5 2017 and has several features. Now I'm sure 9.0 Pie on! The android security package is on December 1, 2018. Super phone!
Roj, 12 Jan 2019That issue is on your data not on your phone.But gps is not related to mobile data
You can use gps offline
I have this message frequently ( GPS signal lost ) in my A5_2017 while using Google maps
This cause me a lot of headache
Can any suggest how to fix?
Is it common in A5 ?
Giggs, 05 Jan 2019Galaxy a5 or huawei y9 for a better long term performance and battery life ????It's been a year since I have an A5 and the performance is very good. Battery lasts up to 24h at full usage (I have to say that it lasted almost 4 days in a row, but with no signal, just photos). I dropped it many times on the floor and in water and it didn't break.
About Huawey...I can't say much. My sister has a P10 lie for about a year and it sucks.. when battery is reaching 20% it's decreasing very fast to 0% and it has too many lags. Don't recommend. Have a nice day
