Phone fantastic! I have had since launch and it has outlasted the charging cable it comes with!
Fast charging is great for a little boost during the day or if you forgot to plug it in overnight.
Plenty of storage, expandable. Still gets security updates (although it is on Android Oreo [8]) as of August 2020.
Only problem was small speck of dust getting in camera lens, which is apparently common with Samsung phones. Much better than my previous Alcatel!!

I've had this phone for 3 years and I am very happy with its performance. I have a 2020 Moto G fast but I decided to stick with the A5 which is way faster. The only issue with my A5 is the fingerprint sensor not working with one specific app although it works flawlessly with all my other apps.

All in all great phone, Ive had mine for a bit over 3 years now, my only big issue ive been facing is that the charging port does not hold the cable. I have cleaned out the charging port several times and the USB-C connector will still fall out if i bump or move my phone while charging.
There is also a slight issue with the "Charging Moisture Sensor" which will sometimes pop up and not allow me to charge my phone until i restart it 2-3 times..

JHuz, 18 Jul 2020My Galaxy A5 2017 has a problem. My battery is draining a b... moreHi dear,
Regarding the fast charging not working try using another cable or another charger or change both with genuine ones it should work. Regarding the the reverse charging or the battery keeps draining until 1 or 0% even when the charger is plugged this happens some times but not always when I plug the phone to charger when its battery is below 10 or 5% but sometimes it charges normally and doesn't drain. This is I guess because your battery is becoming bad and needs replacment. A better solution I am using is starting ultra power saving mode at high battery percentage like 70 or 80% especially when I have a long trip and busy unable to charge the phone on the way. Of course I can enjoy whatsapp chatting music and some basic features without social media od course. However, I find using this solution is much better than disassembling the phone and replacing the battery knowing that most batteries available in the market does not work like the original that came out of the box.

My Galaxy A5 2017 has a problem. My battery is draining a bit and the charging is took a while to full charge, Sometimes it charges backwards, My charging brick is adaptive fast charging but its not indicating fast charging its charging only. How can i fix this Problem?

Galaxy A5 (2017) is a very solid phone! Been using for 3 years now and is still running smoothly. The camera performance is decent, especially when taken on HDR mode. Absolutely love the build quality and the gorgeous screen! Batteries are draining a bit faster but still can comfortably use at least a day.

Samsung made such a fabulous phone. Keep up the good work!

Anonymous, 07 Jul 2020Thanks so much bro.Replace it with original SD Card. You are using Class A or Fake SD Card with no brand on it. Ive experienced that before.
