AnonD-272063, 31 Oct 2017Any one facing front camera blur issue while taking selfy? Im having serious issue with front cam I don't know why I see a lot of complaints about front camera background being blur.Maybe different strokes for different folks but my front camera is the best part of my A5 2017 experience. I find it super cool and clear. If it's too closecsimply use the panoramic view it is pristine clear and I use voice control when taking selfie so I don't have to struggle with my fingers getting a perfect image. Got mine in Berlin and it's super fantastic. I rarely even use the back camera.
AnonD-272063, 02 Nov 2017that is related to software or hardware error ... is any one reported to samsung ? what the an... moreIt's both... But more on the hardware side. The focal point is adjusted during assembly. Nobody understand why Samsung took the weird decision to take that aproach with the front camera, specially when the ones in the J series (J5 - J7) have lower resolutions but much better focus. Even the front camera of the A3 2017 works betters! So, this phone ain't for selfie lovers (who are legion by the way).
navid, 01 Nov 2017Is the problem of inflating the battery solved in Galaxy A5 (2017) model?There is no such problem with the A5 2017. I check regularly on webs like this and sammobile and no one has reported an "inflating battery" problem with this model.

It appears when my phone is already dipped in the water for 1 min. Notification disappeared after 5 hours. Just make sure it's completely dry before charging. Even if you don't get the notification, keep it away from charging for at least 6 hours just to be sure you are safe.

AnonD-272063, 31 Oct 2017Any one facing front camera blur issue while taking selfy? Im having serious issue with front cam As stated before by many, including me, the front camera is the weakest part of this phone. It's focal point ain't "infinite" (everything in focus no matter the distance) but instead it has a fixed, very close, focal point... So is a useless camera if you intend to use it with a selfie stick. It's only for close caption (30 cm aprox) shots. As I mentioned in another post, that's why they included a "panorama selfie" mode where you keep the phone close and tilt to the sides to include more people on the image. But background will always be blurry.
AnonD-695514, 31 Oct 2017But i think when u make selfie background is blurry(bokeh effect).Or i am wrong?It's not a bokeh effect, it's just out of focus because the focal point is too close. That's why it includes the "panorama selfie mode" so you can include a group of people faces keeping the phone close enough so teverybody is in focus. A better aproach for selfie cameras is the "infinite focus" used in other devices, where most of the scene is in focus no matter the distance. Thats why an 8 mp front camara with a better focal point should have been the choice of hardware for this phone... And PDAF for the main camera!

AnonD-507427, 01 Nov 2017You can't receive any future software updates from Samsung and security patches from Google , ... moreThis is not true. Well, rooting is the only thing that increment the Knox counter (0x0 by default). And while he is using an official firmware he is still okay. Know, what happen when a user root his own phone, or when he use an rooted, or unofficial firmware. The counter will be incremented, and we will still able to download official update, but the warranty here and just i this case is void, and he will not be able to use Samsung pay, secure folder and the secure mode in Samsung internet browser. So, In brief, His warranty is okay, and he will still now download any update right before,
