samsung is marketing this phone as 64 bit. however they have put 32 bit os on 64 bit hardware
Why doesn't samsung give 3 gb ram to both variants after all these devices do deserve it

I have played asphalt 7 on it and it ran fine without issues, the battery life in my opinion is very good. It is much better than that of Oneplus One which I was using till the screen broke.
I guess it is not worth the price though but I just thought I should clarify these points in case there is someone that got a good offer for the phone.
AnonD-493877, 02 Feb 2016Why is S5 Neo crap?Why S5 Neo is crap, here are the reasons.
1- Exynos 7850 which used in S5 Neo is too weak for a mobile called hi-end, because of it's price.
2- Compared to S5 or S5 Plus gives you nothing more but the price remains same as them.
3- Battery performance very poor.
4- Build quality looks a like cheap imitation of regular S5 but painted with S6 design line.
5- Cortex A53 is not better than A9 about 32bit and Android OS core is still maintaned 32 bit architecture, even Android 6 is completely 64 bit.
6- Mali-T720MP2 has terrible performance, you can only play poor 3D games may be worser than Mali 450MP4
You can say not everybody play games but you have to remember this.
Not everybody also uses same phone more 2-3 years, if you want to sell it then you will have really big problems.
No body wants it with that price after seeing its performance...
Exynos 7850 is one of the worstest 64 bit chipset arround and should be in Entry-Mid range phones not Up-Mid or hi-end.
Similar to silly snapdragon 61x (5-6-7-8-9-so, so, so, so), I've seen no body arround me that happy with his/her snapdragon device because of its extreme lags.
And the last thing...
S6 is about 500 euro, S5 Neo 450 euro (more and less)
S6 clearly, but extreme clearly 6-7 times faster and 10 times better than S5 Neo, S6 has superrior camera, solid build quality, very clear and loud sound, 2K screen.
If S5 Neo was about 200 euros then yes you can't say affordable phone but with that price.
It is just dirty face of samsung.
I like exynos version with 720p screen. Don't want battery eating full hd screen
Relatively weak spec.
Any idea about d size of d battery? I hope it will come with big battery.
Skyfall, 02 Feb 2016Unfortunately, such phone equipment, this firm, you will lose in front of the Xiaomi or Huawei.Era of Samsung, Apple, etc. are coming to an end. Arrive. Expect from Meizu, Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, LeTv and other like them to prove that they can do or grew new and better phones.
DEMO, 02 Feb 2016Really for what you did to this Samsung phone ? It remodel the old model, doesn't mean anythi... moreYou're right. Just make the remodelling of the old phones. It is downright ridiculous.
Samsung can no longer avoid a direct confrontation with Xiaomi, Huawei, Meizu, Oppo and possible LeTv.
My guess is that Samsung will come out from all the chapters defeated ..:)
When you handle the restyling of the old phones produced by you, then something is not right.:)
Unfortunately, such phone equipment, this firm, you will lose in front of the Xiaomi or Huawei.
MALI T830 and Octa Core...
Just people going to say " Waw it is octa coooooreeeeee"
At least faster than Snapdragon 615 and I'm sure samsung going to make S6 neo with that chipset just like S5 Neo crap.
Not much breath Samsung lately. When you do too many things at one time, you start to get stuck. As you can see will be a failure this phone.
