Fun selfie experience with animated GIF

Sometimes you need more than one photo to show what's going on. The Galaxy A5’s Animated Selfie lets you record those longer moments by snapping up to 20 continuous photos and automatically creating a sharable GIF instead of a movie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 beast of a phone I bought this phome when it just came out. And today (8-11-17) it's still going. Never had any problems with it. There are not mamy cons for me with this phone, except that the aluminium of the phone rather soft, but it doesn't bend. But there are some pros: the aluminium body makes it really strong- the glass is still in one piece, even after throwing it off stairs. Only the battery started the act up lately (low battery after long times of playing light games) the viborator motor also like to partly when the phone lays on it screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use for a not so young user It is easy to use for a not so young user, the alphabet is easy to see to write texts. It is slim enough to slip into pockets so if I don’t wish to take a bag with me I can easily take my phone. I like the look of it and it’s large screen. Two things that would make it perfect and it may be only one as it may be me the first is I have Wechat and texts and the sound is the same to advise me of a message it would be useful to have it different. The other thing is the balance of the phone when it is in the hand it feels to me the balance is the wrong way around
