So, i bought my phone, this phone at march 2017, i was looking for a good phone comparing many types of phones, and my eyes catched this fresh new phone at that time with pretty nice size of inches, same camera's front and back in a really good quality, waterproof, Samsung.. so what could i ask more with a price of nearly 600 dollar price (in the contry i live)! till now it works well. i have had problems with humidity, i went to the service of the store where i bought it, they checked and ''risolved'' the problem. then the problem was still appearing (who knows if they really worked with my phone but anyways), but now its good
manmohp, 24 Nov 2017Better choice... Mi A1 or Galaxy A5 2017 ? Is it a better decision to put in the extra 3000 r... moreBoth are good but galaxy A5 has a edge, Ip68 certification, amoled display, better CPU and GPU and the most important thing Samsung experience 8.1, if you like near stock android and faster software updates then Mi A1 is a good option but if you asking me Samsung Experience 8.1 is a totally different thing
Ieke, 23 Nov 2017I bougt it with android 7Great I got a new one but had to download it
Better choice... Mi A1 or Galaxy A5 2017 ?
Is it a better decision to put in the extra 3000 rs for the A5 2017 ? (Right now in India A5 is selling at 18000 only. and Mi A1 is 15000)
AnonD-685782, 22 Nov 2017Can the a5 be fully submerged in water for taking under water photos? The A5 2017 has ip68 certification for water resistance, meaning it can be underwater (fresh water) for 30 minutes at depths of up to 1.5m. Don't expose the phone to sea water for so long and wash it with fresh water right after been exposed to it. After that, the fingerprint scanner won't work properly until you dry well the area. and the touch sensitivity of the screen will be affected too until it dries. Don't connect the phone to a charger right after been submerged.
peter g, 22 Nov 2017Is the selfie focus problem still there after nougat update ?? Is it hardware or software problemIt's mostly a hardware problem. Saddly, very little can be done via software.
AnonD-685782, 23 Nov 2017Does it have the parralel apps feature Xiomi has? Yes, you can have two separates instance of Whatsapp, Telegram, Instagram, etc.
Happy to have my a5 again! missed is so much love this phone! Did you guys all got the November security version?
I've been using for one month. Everything about the phone is perfect except the front camera. It's the worst I've ever seen. No improvement after the nougat update. Even low range phones from Samsung have much better front camera.
Hye guys, after upgrade to nougat, i've faced one problem; the camera pro mode doesnt work, after i opened it, suddenly it force closed.. please anyone have any solution of this error?
