spartametje, 04 Apr 2017Are you absolutely sure this phone (A520F-DS) allows 2 sim cards and 1 microSD simultaneously?... moreI have the dual SIM version and it DOES allow both a microSD card and a SIM in tray 2. Tray 1 is only a single SIM.
Raine16, 29 Jan 2017I have it. It's dual sim PLUS a dedicated memory card slot. :) three slots overall. :)Are you absolutely sure this phone (A520F-DS) allows 2 sim cards and 1 microSD simultaneously? Despite it seems physically possible, the manual says: "You cannot insert a nano-SIM card and a microSD card in tray 2 at the same time" (page 28).﻿
Today I also contacted Samsung Singapore and Samsung China, and they both told me that it is not possible to use two sim-cards and a sd-card at the same time. So did you actually tested it?

P9 have better display, camera and fingerprint sensor that works anytime, always.

http://www.notebookcheck.net/... moreI plan to buy this phone, but reading the notebookcheck review left me a little bit perplexed regarding :
1) The impossibility to move installed applications to SD Card.
2) The high screen flickering when dimming causing headaches.
For those who have this phone, did you experience those 2 points ?
Rahul, 04 Apr 2017This phone dual 4g slot ya only first 4g slot pls tell me Yes both slots supports 4g . Network mode sim 1 and sim 2 - LTE/3G/2G ( Auto connect)
Just bought the phone, it's handling pretty well, great design, awesome performance, and it feels very premium considering the price was 440e without contract. I don't think there are any good competitive phones near that price range at this moment.
Is the Galaxy A5 worth the money? I would say definetly no. The reasons?
The display compared to my old note 2 is less colourfull, its less clourfull than samsung s7, even less sharper than and less colourfull than Honor 8.
It is still good, but samsung can do better.
The fingerprint sensor is awfull. It hav e problems to recognize fi gerprints, and with wet hands it becomes impossible to unlock the screen.
Selfie camera is average, while Honor 8 is great, but main camera is fast and snaps the moment, image quality is a bit lower than Honor 8.
The good news, it have very good battery life with at least 30% juice left at 23: 00 while Honor 8 cant live till 20:00.
So Galaxy A5 have issues, but the battery is were it excells other phones.
The price tag of 400 euros is still too much.
