I just my flashed my S8 with HADES ROM. to Android 9. This ROM is also available for A5

  • Platony

Same battery issue I always had with mine.

  • Platony

Great phone but, the only issue was the battery. Doesn't stay for long whenever Data is on. I was always charging it. Had to give it out to a cousin.
