Had this phone 18 months now, and it works like it did the first day .... wonderfully. Never had any overheating issues, the updates have always made it better. Hope there's still alot of life in the old girl yet.

I wonder when the Nougat update will come to this device as they said it'll come and I hope it'll solve the overheating issue that I've been experiencing ever since I updated to Marshmallow 6.0.1, it overheats even when texting on whatsapp for just 5mins, I love samsung but these overheating issues are a problem they must resolve
My device a5 only signals 2g network after upgrading to marshmallow
I upgraded my a5 frkm adriod 4.4.4 to 6.0.1,,since after the upgrade my 3g network went off.. Please i need help on how to solve this problem
Cloud , 20 Jan 2017I still waiting
Android MM arrived for 3 months now . But the small update still not .... i ... moreBro...it really a long time gone waiting the small update but you still not get it, really feel sad for you. I am not understanding why samsung did not provide this small update in your region.
I suggest you to do a factory reset then check for update again, if it doesn't help then use samsung kies and smart switch on your pc to upgrade your phone. May be it will help you.
This device had a good design. And then you can see where it came with it's 2017 iteration...
