Salman. Do you have problems with charging your phone? Why you quote my post? Anyone else have problems with charging around 75-90% of battery capacity?

  • salman

From two weeks I have strange battery charging. I can charge my phone from 0-100on quick charge in 1h 28minutes, which is totally normal for my phone, but when I change charging from quick to slow (5V 2Amper) my phone charges in 1h 38 minutes.

Its very fast it should charge in around 2houers on slow charge. Ive changed cables, chargers, I've clean up all ports, and I've done factory reset and still this phone charge very fast on slow charging mode. Anyone have the same charging speed on both options ?

Certainly the best mid-level phone i ever had. Plenty of features and the screen is FAR better (by that i mean more sensitive and no problems if the screen or your fingers are wet) then any of the competitors' phones in the same price range. Never had a single problem with it either. Performance is more than adequate, but resource heavy games sometimes get the better of it. After 2 years and 7 months of (relatively) heavy use, battery is somewhat degraded, but still holds more than a full day of charge, and i use my phone a lot (as opposed to holding a little over two full days of charge when i bought it).

I have this phone for 2 years and one month, and today I have 7H 50Minutes of Screen On Time after 29 hours of phone working and 2% battery left.

Its really nice score for 2 years old phone, and good to have IP68. Not many phones right now have this feuture. My next for will be Xcover Pro, i need ip68 and good battery life.

Tony, 25 Sep 2019Please give pie updateA very small in hand but majestic phone. What is built in this phone is bigger than its handling size. In term of software, I've compared this phone (Samsung A5 2017) with some big size phones and yet A5 2017 beat them off. l like it!

Shahroz samuel , 08 Nov 2019Hello am from lahore pakistan. I didnt get andorid pie update o... moreI cannot send any photos because I no longer own my phone. I had a note 9 but recently traded it for an LG G7 which is running Android 9.0 pie. I did use Pie also on the note 9. My girlfriend has the 2017 model Samsung A5 here in Canada under the vendor koodo, and they are only on Android 8.0 at the moment. So from what I have experienced you may be getting the following but it's not guaranteed it's just things I noticed on different phones that run Android 9. It seems companies are bringing in dark mode a lot more. You have to run the default theme but it makes everything white show as black and everything black show White and the rest of the colours basically appear as the colour they are so it is like you are running a Black theme. A lot of companies upgraded the bootloader once 9 was released and updated a few times so if you get this update to Android 9 and wish to root or jailbreak your phone you may need wish to not upgrade because it will make your job a lot harder. You will need an app called package disabler but we'll have to find one that runs differently because they banned all the package disabler apps because everyone was using them to prevent their phone from further updates. There are lots of extra options though, is there any questions you have that I can answer if I remember correctly? The only other option is for me to write you if or when they update my girlfriends A5 so I can take a look and let you know. Ask me if you wish to know any other things but your best bet would be to go on to YouTube and Google A5 pie release secrets or OS guesses.
