Excellent phone. Bought it 4 months ago, and it still runs smooth without problems. Very smooth in gaming too, so far I've played GTA San Andreas maxed out without a single stutter. Multi-tasking is no problem for this phone, but I think 1GB extra of RAM would be suitable for a phone this price. The phone charges from 1% to 100% in an hour and a half with fast charging if you leave it alone and turn on power-saving.
Would recommend this phone.
Migas, 04 Aug 2016I can´t dicide between this phone and the J5 (2016) for what I read the j5 is only super... moreThe A5 2016 is better because it's parts like RAM, CPU, GPU are newer and better and the design of the A5 is much better.
Niels, 05 Aug 2016Am using A5 2016 but my storage is 4gb but the are writing 32gb on the phone It's different for every country. Once I bought myself a Alcatel and in this site they are saying that i had 16 gigabites but i only had 8 with 4 useable. So you're fucked up man. In the bottom of any phone specification in this sites is written that the specification might not be 100% corrrect. I know my country is hit and the companies sent here the defective phones and now I bought my Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 from Austria and I hope it is a great phone.
after updating Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow i have a problem SVoice Provider which massage ( you need to download and install SVoiceProvider. you will be taken to the download screen.) will be appearing every time when switch on the mobile. can anyone help me how to fix on this issue?
Pokemon Go already available in Philippines but still the Marshmallow update no hint about it
Massart, 05 Aug 2016any bugs? any issues with the smart manager??no issues for smart manager....only one bug i think...on fully charging the battery 100% it doent show any notification of battery fuly charged or unplug the charger....i checked it around 10 15 min it just shows 100% fast charging...
big mistake..screen mirroring option missing . i hate Samsung
How about the gaming performances of this phone after updating it to the marshmallow.....I mean games like asphalt 8,modern combat 5,dead trigger......please some one tell.....
I recommend not to get the Marshmallow update. No any speed improvement. Just a few UI changes. It only waste your data. Now i repent over my update. Even I can't go back to Lollipop. Now I am waiting for Nougat. Hope it would make me happy.
iTzMe, 05 Aug 2016am plan to buy a5 can anybody help with using free jio sim on it? This phone sucks. got it 2days back. lags for no reason. ive installed asphalt 8. the game lags like hell. 22k is a sheer waste of money for me. please dont encourage these kind of phones. when u wanna buy samsung, its better to go for high end phones like s7 edge n note 5. better dont buy this a5 2016 or a7 2016. it SUCKS!!
Today I got updated my A510FD to Marshmallow. I received it today directly to the phone. I must say that there is no any performance improvement in new update. A haptic feedback is added at the switch on of the phone and it is not an impressive vibration. When I swich on the power saving mode a grey line stays on the top of the screen that is in the drag down notification bar. It is unimpressive. The entire drag down notification area is white now. Overall the new features are not very much significant when compared to Lollipop. No any speed improvement. The smoothness is just as same as of Lollipop. So I recommend there is no point of installing the new update.
A5 2016 has no other version than 16GB , of wich 11GB are user-available. But it has microSD slot for up to 128GB (tested with 128GB Samsung UHS Class 10 memmory card and working perfetct).
