Samsung’s refreshed 2017 models of Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 are pretty impressive spec phones.

Now, both of them features fingerprint sensor and USB Type-C ports.

I am using this tablet from last year with stock Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) that was shipped with the tab. I felt the device is not using all the resources and not delivering enough performance as it is capable of. I even wrote a small post on How-to make Samsung Galaxy Tab PRO 12.2 Fast.
