Maybe I forgot to mention but I would want to limit myself to single-handed useable sizing... 5.5 is just too big for that!
A5, as its within that and also Amoled. Not sure if I make sense, but cores are mainly on paper - when it comes to real-time performance, it might not matter that much to me as a predominant WhatsApp user. Rest Hardware being Samsung presume is nice.
I have been on Mi4i for a while now, but over the time, performance has been slowing down now. Also, hardware though nice is plastic and ages faster.
Something between 15-20 k comparative to Samsung A5 specs, and Ii am game for it.
Hello, should I accept a j7 prime and about 50 euros in exchange for my a5 2016 ? both phones are in excellent state﻿
which mobile is better?? A5(2016) or the samsung galaxy j7 (2016) ??
I am huge fan of Samsung Phones but they are cheating their customers. they did't include some features like gyro, light sensor and many more. I am currently using Samsung A5 2016 and Galaxy E7 but it's don't have gyro sensor which is available in range of 5 to 10 k phones from other brands.
I agree that 2015 A-series was a waste of money but 2016 A-series are awesome/good.
I'm using Galaxy A5 2016 (A510FD) and I'm loving it.
It's as good as Galaxy S6. (I have used all three smartphones mentioned above)
GadgetZonePH, 06 Dec 2016You should know that you must not expect that these A-Series from Samsung would be as lavishin... moreBro i have used Galaxy A5 2016 as well as Galaxy S6.

Both are awesome smartphones.
Don't judge or write bad comments without using that phone. Use it and I'm sure you will love it.
And you should known that in 2016 it's the second best smartphone series.

ABDULLAH, 08 Dec 2016are u running marshmallow? is there any lag or problem after updating to marshmallow from lollipop?Galaxy A5 2016 (A510FD) is running smooth on Android 6.0.1.

Anonymous, 08 Dec 2016Can it scan your fingerYes Galaxy A5 (2016) has a fingerprint reader just like Galaxy S6/S6 Edge,Note 5/S6 Edge Plus,etc.
Galaxy A5 (2016) a very good device just like Galaxy S6.
Lucky, 09 Dec 2016Android 7.0 nougat for Samsung a5 2016 ???Andriod N for Galaxy A5 (2016) is confirmed but don't know when we will get it.

Nika, 28 Dec 2016Thanksss. I feel like i will betray BB if i go with another phone ) It is so native. Your wellcome. I don't think you will betray anyone. It is your money and you can choice the best option which works best for you. No one can force you to go for something you do not like to use. I was typically a "Nokia" user from 2004 (first phone 3315) to 2012 (last phone 7610). At that time they are the best and I use them. But from 2012 I changed to Samsung Galaxy series and today in my home 4 galaxy devices are running. There is news that Nokia will be back in 2017 with 5 models. But I am not going to use them again. Happy with Samsung as a brand and I will use for next decades unless there is massive changes in technology.
brosam01, 29 Dec 2016It still retails for INR21k+ in India. Do you think it's worth it, or are there some competit... moreIt depends on you choice. Currently there is no best or least device. Every device has its' own pros and cons. A5 is good a better choice in this price 21K. If you are a traditional Samsung user than it is a best option to upgrade. But if you are migrating from other brands and do not mind about Samsung apps, than you can opt for some other devices like Moto M, Leco or Mi. As you have said you are using a Mi device than I think you should go for new Mi devices like Mi 5 which has more powerful specs at 23K. at 2K difference you will gain more.
My biggest disappointment from this phone is a lack of gyroscope sensors. When I was not able to use SkyMap application. How it is possible that this middle class phone does not have the feature available even in cheap phones?
It still retails for INR21k+ in India.
Do you think it's worth it, or are there some competitors in this mid-range category worth considering?
Info - I am upgrading from Xiaomi 4i.
my a5 2016 battery has puffed up, i can see the tempered glass on the back does not lay flat anymore. this morning my phone just froze. has anyone ever experienced this?
Kunalmzr, 28 Dec 2016As you are a BB user than I will recommended you to go for Dtek 50. Because of the Superior BB... moreThanksss. I feel like i will betray BB if i go with another phone )
It is so native.
This phone has been designed beautifully. I love the gold version. It feels so comfortable in the hand, although it can be slippy without a cover. It is a phone for people who care about what their phone looks like more than the performance. The one thing I wished this phone had is a LED indicator, but it makes up for it with its amazing screen and fingerprint sensor.
