Be aware that the A5 has a fixed focus front camera, meaning anything past 1meter will be blurry

Also you can get the A5 for $0 if you sign up with Fido's $40 5Gb plan, not everyone could get that plan but just letting you know.
Please share how to get the A5 for $0 with Fido's $40 5Gb plan.
Thanks.

Worth the extra money for the A5?
I do not think so. If you want the A5, it is better to keep an eye on Koodo, especially weekend deals from Walmart, TMS and Wow.

Agree. I got a Koodo A5 last Saturday $0 upfront, small tab $240 with $300 WM GC + $50 self-referral. Koodo/WM paid me $14 to take a free A5.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.

I loved to be able to give this a try. I shop Walmart so little that $300 would take me several years to use up.

My spouse like to shop grocery at WM. I had been trying to get my spouse to shop grocery at RCSS with my PCO points by churning Koodo phones. Now, I will churn Koodo phone at WM as well as TMS.

how often do you do this? Don't you need to take a hard credit hit everytime you sign up? I am surprised Koodo didn't have a mechanism to detect multiple sign up or something.

I churn one Koodo phone every 1 - 2 months. No credit check if you add a new line to a Koodo account.

Should I get the a5 for $150 or Huawei for $75? Which camera is better?
Full disclosure: I'm a new Zoomer customer and I've been using the Huawei P10 Lite for about 3 weeks. I'm very happy with it. To your question, I had a look on GSMarena for a quick and dirty comparison. Keep in mind this website is not always 100% accurate and there can also be variability between models (ex: 32GB or 64GB, etc). In a nutshell the A5 has the same or slightly above performance specs than the P10 Lite, with the camera being a 16MP for the A5 vs. 12MP for the P10 Lite. However, as was mentioned by a few people in the thread the front camera on the A5 is not autofocus, so if you use it for anything besides selfies it may be blurry. Both are early 2017 models, have nearly identical processing power, both offer 32GB storage, and both have 3000mAh of battery capacity with fast charging.

If photos are your main concern I would read up on the capabilities of both devices. Having a quick look at this comparison, it looks like the P10 Lite offers more in the way of customization with optional manual ISO, and shutter speed options, with the A5 has burst mode.

I do not think so. S8 is still too new for Zoomer.

Fido $40 5GB take a look at the thread,
Thanks. Going through the thread, it seems like it's a hard thing to get from Fido.
I think the $36/3GB Zoomer is a good plan, but at the moment no good phone if they something like A5 for a good price.
