vino, 02 Jun 2017What's your opinion s7 or A5 2017 for beauty and perfection don't compare midranges with flagships
Catherine-Ari, 01 Jun 2017Guys XD I feel like obsessed with this smartphone :D I'd love to have it in pink :D. Does any... moreIt is overall a great phone, great build quality and it is pretty fast on everyday use, the battery lasts up to 3 days of normal use for me so that's nice, about the cameras it is not for camera enthusiasts but for me it does the job so not so bad, it lacks any kind of IS so you gotta be careful when taking images or videos to not shake it too much, the screen is amazing and very sharp with a customizable color range and a blue light filter, plus it has IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, it packs 3gb of ram so multitasking isn't a problem, tho if you like to game a lot this phone is an avarage performer for games, but for everything else this phone has almost no lag or stutter, i do reccomend it.
Guys XD I feel like obsessed with this smartphone :D
I'd love to have it in pink :D. Does any of you have it for real? What are your impressions ? It costs a small fortune in my country. Like 400 euro something :D
Hello sir.. my a5 front camera dont have auto or manual focus..when i take shots with a monopod, photos are blurry. Do you have any idea tor any apps to correct it.. thanks.
dave@ph, 01 Jun 2017Well Anonymous, I have a 2year old Xperia Z3 and it has not scratched. I also have a Huawie Ho... moreMaybe your A5's glass made contact with something sharp, unlike your Z3?
And yes, A5 DOES have gorilla glass 4. No false advertisements from Samsung.
Anonymous, 31 May 2017Scratch resistant doesn't meaning you can go use a razor blade or something sharp on the glass... moreWell Anonymous, I have a 2year old Xperia Z3 and it has not scratched. I also have a Huawie Honor 6 from 1year and half ago, but the screen has not scratched. But this Galaxy A5 (2017) I have been using for only 4 months SCRATCHED and samsung is saying its Gorilla Glass 4! Is Samsung kidding me?!!!
Gino76, 31 May 2017Is it true there is no image stabilisation (even electronic) feature on the camera of the A5 &... moreThere is a small digital stabilization, but it is not efficient. Making videos while walking will make the image very shaky. The quality of the photographs is superior to last year's model, but the night images are not good. The post-processing is not good, it seems that there is a lot of software to reduce the noise at night, this causes the images to lose their naturalness and look like paintings. The light tones are very bursting, the blue of the sky sometimes turns white. Sharpness is also very hard, especially when zooming in on images, which causes details to be lost. But you can capture photos with much higher quality, just download the AZ Camera apk and configure it to capture in RAW. As RAW capture is not natively supported by A5 2017, RAW photography when opened in Photoshop will turn pink, but just correct the colors and make a few adjustments and you will have a photograph with almost professional quality. The images are incredibly soft and light, it's almost sweet.
Hai..im very happy with this model..for me its very excellent..but i have one problem, why my picture that taken by camera said "this file type is not supproted"? The image that i have taken is saved to memory card..when im taken the picture and save to the device nothing problem..is it because the memory card problem? Thanks for your help
Is it true there is no image stabilisation (even electronic) feature on the camera of the A5 & A3 2017? Would you say the camera is better than last year's model in terms of quality, contrast, saturation & brightness (especially in low-light)? Speakers any good?
Hils, 31 May 2017Nobody does that, as in using razor to scratch your phone but even if you do that, Corning cla... more"Corning claims it can withstand it."
They never said it can withstand that, but I've seen JerryRigEverything's videos of him using razor blades on GG phones, they never got scratched. But things like fine sand can still scratch it.
"If little things and normal careful handling of your phone without pouch or any protection should get it scratched so easily, what's the essence of shouting Gorilla Glass?"
GG3, GG4 and GG5 all have same level of scratch resistance. All they they have been improving is the durability of the glass. I heard GG5 can withstand drops from shoulder-height.
And the benefits of GG over other glasses? Well, it's more durable than the rest.
My old moto g had GG3, never used any sort of screen guard for it, and it never got scratched. Only because I was careful.

Ok you said they didn't promise scratch proof, and obviously they didn't promise shatter proof either, so what's the advantage of having gorilla Glass on your device instead of other ordinary glasses?
