This is a great phone, but it seems like Samsung is lowering our battery life with every consecutive update. I can hardly go a full day on a single charge anymore.
I just hit 2 years with this phone. I'm going to be getting a different one now since my contract is over. The SA5 2017 has been an amazing phone for the full 2 years I had it. Only in the past 2 days has it started bugging out (from age, I suppose?). But before that, my time with this has been completely solid.
I have the A5 once the sound went so restarted it and worked then fone calls going to voice mail so had to restart it again and worked. looked at my updates only on july.

Jaro, 19 Sep 2018Yes it is and it takes 1% battery per hours , so im not using it. I woukd like to see LED sign. However, I think the always-on display is only on when the phone is exposed to light. Put it face down or in your pocket and it goes off. Either that or it uses a lot less than 1% per hour as my A5 usually uses around 20 to 25% battery per day with light usage.
