For a 100 bucks, I'm not worried about it.

$120 Price was when it was 90 USD. That price has been gone for over a week. OP should really update the new price to $135.

Geez people are critical of a phone costing $100 USD. No USB-C, no 5 Ghz support. Not the end of the world people, the phone will work just fine.

Official page says "Supports 5G Wi-Fi Signal / Wi-Fi Direct / Supports Wi-Fi Display".
I think it can see 5Ghz WiFi, but doesn't support AC protocol.
802.11n supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz

Also does Aliexpress allow stacking coupons. Like New user discount and $6 discount?
Hmmmm.... It's on $50 plans, not $40... At least this is what I see...

My mom's LG G4 crapped out, looking for a replacement.

She likes easy to use but wants a decent camera. Would this fit the bill?

She's on freedom, so the Moto deal doesn't work well.

If she's used to a LG-G4 camera, which is pretty good, she will probably be disappointed with the camera on this phone.

Yeah the G4 Camera is still pretty impressive.

Shit, thought this was going to be the one, I'll have to start searching again.

Thanks for your reply.

The LG-G4 was once a flagship phone. This A5 Pro is a budget device. Now, no one has used it yet or reviewed the camera but I expect the camera will be usable but mediocre. Which is fine given the $130 price point.

It's worth pointing out that this A5 Pro will destroy the old LG-G4 in every other aspect *but* the camera. Maybe the A5 Pro's camera will match the G4 quality, but i sorta doubt it.
