The redmi 3 sports a snapdragon 616 and the price will be around just Rs.7000 in India.
always unrealistic pricing from Samsung. At 33k their flagship S6 is available. A7 vs S6. at 29k A8 is available which still a very good phone. A5 should not be more than 22k since much better phone such as OP2 available in market.
33400 INR for a mid range phone.WOW ! Samsung wt an insane price. its time to rethink about switch over from samsung.
The Indian version of the A5 & A7 will incorporate Samsungs vastly superior Exynos 7580 chipset... not that NOT that overheating pile of junk Snapdragon 615
And bear in mind that the Exynos 7580 is fabricated off a 20nm die ..... NOT 28nm like SD 615
At least they should have packed SD 810 or 808 ... The rest of the spec are still alright but that chipset is available in 13k to 23k phones
Apple is selling its iPhone 5S around 25,000 INR, Google is selling its Nexus 5X at 20,000 INR and many other manufacturers are selling their flagships below 40,000 INR. These all devices are having better specs than A5 and A7. Indian buyers are not fool.

For the lagging part I have to say that my 11 month A3 has a great performance (one tip, I have no SD inside) and I don't understand how "lags" the new A with better hardware!
Samsung you dont have any interest to sell this phone. All you want is to gain attention of people for your upcoming S7
Spend few more bucks and you can grab a S6 which has far more superior specs than this mid ranger.
OMG.. $433.. What they are thinking?.. Its $180-$200 worth phone considering MOTO G, BLU phones with similar specs selling for $100-$170.
stupid pricing samsung
s6 is now available in 35k for 32gb and you thing that anyone invest 30k for a5
and your a8 now available at 26k
you might b confused with your pricing

The more noticeable difference you will start noticing after few months of use. at this point of stage, S6 still is a future phone as compared to A7 its life will be more.

The 615 is better suited to 720p phones due to its single channel memory and limited bandwidth.

Well typical Samsung pricing. But people still buy it because it has a brand value. As for me, I will rather buy a oneplus x or nexus 5x. And remember this midrange will never be updated past marshmallow.
Is this your gift to Indians for completing 20 years in India.? Thumb down SAMSUNG. Really Pathetic and Insane.

There are all details you want in this site! The chip in S6 is much better than A but in real flife there is no noticable the deference.
At this point price..this phone is not even for masses and not even for classes. I could understand your pricing strategies for your flagships phone...but now the same trend you have started for the mid range phones too? If this is your price for mid range phones...than i guess your upcoming flagships phones are gonna sky rocket with price tags of above 70k
