You just got a faulty one and that's not very common in this model or it would be a trend topic on forums like this

It may use the same sensor but it lacks many features and the image processing power of a high end chipset.

Just install other keyboard like SwiftKey or Gboard and problem solved. And you are comparing it to an S7, a top model... It has no sense. You can blame the salesman for convincing you that this was better (of course is not). But is not a bad phone
The A5 (2017) is easily the worst phone I have ever had in my life. The auto correct isn't actually intuitive, and doesn't remember any words commonly used (it's unbelievable) so it's useless for anyone using it professionally. The camera isn't great, especially forward facing, and it has so many less of the features the the galaxy 5 had. My screen cracked and my replacement warranty company didn't have anymore A5s so I am switching to the Galaxy 7, which was the phone I wanted and my Koodo sales rep convinced me that the A5 was a better phone. I don't have any friends that own this phone and are satisfied with it. I love Samsung, but this phone is an EPIC fail.
Please share camera review of A5 (2017). I used C7 which also had 16Mp camera but the image quality was not satisfactory as it shows noise in image upon zoom in, pixel distorted and focus was also not good... In short image quality was not smooth.
Does A5 (2017) offer better image quality like galaxy note4 or S6??
I bought this phone about 2 months ago and once I was using snapchat and suddenly the phone switched off... when I went to the support center, they said that my phone's motherboard got damaged....anyways they replaced it and my phone started working properly..

And the missing calls is a problem with the service provider, their cells and antennas, not the phone. So don't blame the phone unless a certified service provider check it and report it as faulty
jacinjai, 03 Apr 2018how to heck did i receive it only 12.80 Mb for my SM-A520F - A520FXXS4BRC2...? it should be 2... moreIt depends on the region of the phone. It's not the same update package for all regions. Maybe yours only received the security patch and the rest of optimizing patches will arrive in the next update. It happened to me once.
AnonD-750104, 06 Apr 2018Hey guys! I have read that the selfie camera on this phone has focusing issues, has anyone no... moreYes, the selfie camera is only for close pictures. Almost useless at arm length or with a selfie stick. The problem is the calibration of the focal point (a real shame since it's a waste of the 16 mp sensor). The screen is superb! Very bright outdoors and excellent legibility. The battery is very good too. And the main camera is very snappy. I've had this phone for a whole year and I'm very satisfied with it, specially for the monthly updates
OTG PROBLEM , 05 Apr 2018My A5 2017 don't recognize the otg usb. Somebody now what can I do.The adapter that comes with the phone does not support OTG, it's just an adapter to use with other chargers or micro USB cables. You have to buy a third party USB C OTG adapter. It's the only way
I have read that the selfie camera on this phone has focusing issues, has anyone noticed it? And if so did software updates solve the issue?
And do you think that the screen is a good reason to buy the phone?
Thanks in advance!
jerry, 05 Apr 2018Can anyone tell me if the Nougat update really drains the battery?don't think so. Bought the phone last month with nouget update. On a full charge it can last up to 1 and half days easily under moderate use. I use it with around 6 to 7 hours of wifi on time and at the end of the day still 30-35% battery left. On a full charge it can last a day easily. also don't discharge the battery under 20% as it reduce the battery life time and better not to charge over 95% as it is good for the battery. Drain the battery fully once a month only and charge to 100%.
My A5 2017 don't recognize the otg usb. Somebody now what can I do.
This is being upgraded to Oreo now which I didn't quite expect. Its come down in price as well so looking a bit more competitively priced.

I think it uses about 1% per hour of battery charge. Make sure that you have have enabled Keep Screen Turned Off in the display settings and then put the phone face down overnight. If that's not the cause then look at the Battery in Device Maintenance to see what has been using the power.
