on 26 December 2017
While the cost does contain a premium, it is work the money when you look at the rock solid stability the product is able to provide and the ease with which it gets up and running. Also the Samsung A5 2017 gets upgraded to latest Android 7 on first use - so another big CHEERS for the customer.
The best IP68 certified phone in this price range with a Full HD AMOLED paired with 16MP front and a 16MP rear camera both with f/1.9 packs the right punch for pictures and videos alike. While 32GB is sufficient, recommend a Class 3 micro SD if your choice is more of full HD Videos.
The Type C fast charger is again a value add to the customer and get the phone > 50% charged in under 20 mns. No complaints in this dept as well.
All in all have been using it for > 12~16hr a day with good battery backup and Samsung A5 2017 has been consistent in performance with no notable heating issues or performance lags even with > 8 to 10 apps running in background / in parallel.
******ADDING TO THE REVIEW AFTER 7 MONTHS OF HEAVY USE (>6 ~ 8 HRS A DAY)
Still going strong without any lag or delays. Worth every penny that has been spent. The display is the highlight and makes constant use / extended use harmless to the eyes. Battery still holds charge at end of Day @ 30%. Recharging it for 20 mins and you are back at 70%
Good job SAMSUNG
