Well I have been using the Samsung A5 2017 for 3 months now and it's very good. It's fast, colors and sound excellent. I don't know why some don't like it as it performs just as well as any phone out there and at a much lower cost. The camera has The most megapixels of any iPhone or other phones. 16 mix. Very nice indeed. Large screen at 5.1. What can you ask better?
I have just bought an A5 but my original sim from my j3 does not fit. Do I need a micro sim and will I have to purchase this?
Is the pictures from the camera (front and selfie) is better in nougat or the same especially in low light? And is there any some sort of stabilization added? Is the battery life shorter? Does the phone heat up easily after the update? And how is the performance after the update
I was provided this phone by my company as the primary phone to work on, since it has a dual sim i dropped my personal phone (Sony Xperia x compact) which i bought few months earlier.
After a month of use, i have to say, i'm not happy with the experience, the touchwiz offers many user friendly options and apps, thats true, but the performance of the phone compared to other phones in the same price category is much less than expected. On paper the specs of this phone is meduim yet closer to high end phones, but the performance is closer to lower end phones. The screen resolution and colors look fine, but compared to my X compact is much worse expecially the colors, the performance on medum to high end games is drastically worse than my X compact.
I've been using Android since 2010, and till this year i've only used high end phones, starting with the Desire HD from HTC in 2011, then the Google Nexus 5 in 2013, then the LG G4, which i had to change due to the Bootloop issue, then got the X compact from sony which was my first medium quality phone, i was very surprised using it, colors, performance and camera were very good, and the battery was exceptionally amazing getting me through a full day with high usage of internet, email, browsing and gaming and reaching home at night after a full day with around 25 to 30% battery.
One thing else i hate about this phone is that it is very very very slippery, to an annoying extent, and it's not very comfortable in one hand. For the price you can get many other options. It's not a bad phone, but i can surely say for the price it's the worst in it's category. The battery is very good though, and lasts me through a full day, i'd say its the second best phone with a battery i've used in all of those above.
If there is an advice i can give to anyone it would be, "If you want samsung, go for the high end phones, the S series or the Note, the rest of their lines are mediocre phones that you're better without.
TJ, 27 Dec 2017Should I buy the A5 or S7? The S7 is only like £70 more so I think it's worth it but not sureIf you want better camera in low light and faster opening in gaming buy s7.
If you want experience 8.1, far better battery life and usb type c,
In performance are 90% the same.

Dimitri, 26 Dec 2017Please. I have huawei p9. I need to change with my brother. My question is huawei p9 (leica) f... moreHuawei P9 is far superior in terms of specs, but the A5 has the better battery life.

Just got this phone. Fantastic screen and with nova launcher it's a great phone. Excellent battery life.
One big problem is fingerprint option is useless, which is why I got the phone instead of s5 neo.
My iPhone fingerprint worked flawlessly, why this one is so piss poor us beyond me.
