Clive Cardoz, 20 Jan 2015I like everything about this phone apart from battery life and display.
1)Battery life: I ha... moreThis phone sucks ,
why not to add 10k more (150 $) more and buy Galaxy Alpha with exynos 5430 and antutu score 50,000 , Fingerprint sensor and heart rate sensor , 4k video , much much better gpu , Notification Led , actually better camera even through 12 mp , Better Rear look , Speaker position like iphones , From rear look A5 looks like Grand series or S3 type , while Alpha looks very different and sexy
It has 20 nm arch. So even through only 1860 mah , my Alpha last long more than my friend's Htc M8
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2015Hi,
How is the battery life ? Is it good and can last for a day ?I like everything about this phone apart from battery life and display.
1)Battery life: I have used htc one m8 and coming from I have good experience of battery life. However a5 doesn't stand tall when compared to other phones in that range. With Web browsing I last only 3 to 3.5 hrs which sucks. With music playback it last maximum 5 hrs. With calls it last max 4 hrs again. It sucks to the core. So for the people looking for a phone with good or even best battery backup, this phone is not ideal. I would rate it below as below average.
2) Display: Amoled HD display truly can tempt anyone but the one on this phone comes with an issue which most of the users would agree with. While scrolling on a page or in the image with a black Color in it, anyone can easily note that the black turns purple. It's very very visible. I don't know what samsung has done with the display of this phone. It is a big drawback for an Amoled lover.
To the people crying about non removable battery ..
Why Do U Even want to remove battery???
If Somehow u are A dumb user who can make the phone hang, Just Hold the power button for some seconds and ur mobile will restart !
