Hamid, 01 Oct 2017have it otg ?Hi, yes it supports type-c usb otg. But you have to buy a separate one since the included adapter, micro-usb to type-c, inside the box (depends on your country if you have one), only supports charging and not usb reading. I only wished Samsung would also include the type-c usb otg but oh well, that's Samsung!
October 01 finally! Nougat for the Philippines! -After months of waiting! Hopefully, we A5 17 owners will have Oreo too, but again with months in the waiting! Oh well, that's Samsung!
Ara Arg, 30 Sep 2017Did anybody here find a curved tempered glass that covers the entire screen at eBay or any o... moreHere in Philippines we have but with colors, meaning the upper and lower bezels of the tempered glass are not transparent but colored like gold, black even white since it's sticky on those part so it could stay in place on the curve sides. The sticky part would be too obvious if the whole tempered glass was transparent. Try alibaba or any chinese store online, they mostly have everthying, except quality.

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2017What phone is better? - Samsung Galaxy C5 Pro 64GB Dual or Samsung Galaxy A5 ?A5 is better. Why? Because A5 has some specs that C5 doesn't have like:
- Samsung Pay
- IP68 certified - dust/water proof over 1.5 meter and 30 minutes
- Screen protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 4
- Always-on display
- Fast battery charging
- Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery

Can someome tell me,who owns this phone, that a5 2017 is capped at 720p 60fps or 1080p 30fps only on youtube? And game tuner has the same problem as a5 2016 where it throttles performance??? Never found these things on internet and I want to know.

Hamid, 01 Oct 2017have it otg ?Yes. But based on some users, your USB OTG must be using a USB-C plug. They tried using the USB OTG with micro-USB plug and attached the micro-USB to USB-C dongle but it won't work. Better test the USB OTG dongle before buying it.

JPS Ahava, 01 Oct 2017NO, there is not gorilla glass protection. Better to buy a glass screen protector for it.The display is properly laminated and features oleophobic coating, which might be a standard on pricier phones, but is not as common on affordable phones, so itÂ’s nice that the J5 (2017) has this.
Ive found this on phone arena. Is it true ?
Catherine-Ari, 30 Sep 2017Guys ? Is there any protection on J5 2017 ? Like gorilla glasNO, there is not gorilla glass protection. Better to buy a glass screen protector for it.
There's always pros and cons for each phone.
In the price like A5 2017, you can find a phone with either decent camera or decent specs. But what I like about A5 2017 is the overall quality of hardware, software (disregard those late updates), and build.
I see some phones with decent camera but prone to hardware errors after few months.
I see some phones with decent specs but failing in hardware-software optimization.
I've seen Samsung growing up in optimizing hardware-software. I really like Touchwiz UI since Galaxy Y though Touchwiz isn't greatly optimized during those times. But today's Samsung Experience UI is great for me! Gone are the days where iOS UI and Xperia UI are my only favorite.
It's already 8 months and this phone's quality didn't deteriorate IMO.
