Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I got this phone in early 2018. It works so well. My phone loads fast and has never froze. One thing is that the camera isn't the best in low lighting but it looks amazing taking daylight/ringlight photos. Very modern and clean looking. Overall, I love it. I don't plan on switching for a while. I also love the home button and how fast the fingerprint scan is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design I've been using this phone for over a year and I love it. Nice clean design. All of the ports are perfect. Durable enough to be forgotten about with me gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect display size and sleek! I wanted to try an i-Phone for my next buy (because of the hype and I own a Mac) but glad I went for the Samsung A5 (as a result of acquiring a reasonably priced contract). It has all the features I need and is priced more reasonably.
