Cool phone, cool stuff.
Believe me, Samsung Mobile spoilt the fun of these well built phone by making the battery irremovable.
It won't sell as anticipated. That is why mobile phones sell a lot more than tablets with fixed batteries.
It's comparatively pricey for the hardware features offered...gsm arena you should have said this about iphone 6 witch is 2009 spek low end 1000$ phone...
Good phone. Very trendy. Worked on beautification.. Nicely configured.. However the logic of irremovable battery is not understood.
If any case the mobile battery not working properly in that case we dnt have any choice because the mobile having a inbuilt battery. .
Good phone, with good camera. Processor is OK and consumes less energy. Beautiful display. I used many Galaxys, S4 was incomparable, but A5 is also beautiful and looks modern and elegant.
samsung plz dont make such phones with non removable battery if the phone battery is removable phone sale will be greater ..pplzz work on this ...
For the specs given it is expensive for Indian market. I would rather wait for the price to ne down for this phone.
AnonD-142922, 01 Feb 2015No I NEVER purchased battery in my life.. why my batt. wud go weak? yeah batteries MOSTLY goes... morehi... we are power user dont like hanging on a wall jack, power bank or battery jacket thats made our phone looks ugly and super thick
so... we need a removable battery and extra battery kit like samsung did on all s and note series... thats all.
very good design, great dimension, clear n bright amoled, smooth touch wiz..... but non removable battery and too pricey! #$&@%®¢¥£€
I tried this phone out, I'd it's OK, I really don't like the back's finishing, it feels like a rubber coated metal, and for the price tag, putting a Snapdragon 615 would be a lot better. I'd honestly would've gone for the Alpha instead because the price tag isn't any further from the A5, and the Alpha features removable battery, fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor.
i am feel all mobile phone from samsung is same same about design. i don't see any news point about design for galaxy range. although, i also see samsung using metal body for mobile phone instead plastics as before
Premium build is the way to go.
Any specs are quickly outdated, but solid build quality lasts.
finally. After years of battering, Samsung gives us something with a premium build. At least the Samsung fanboys now have an option for a premium build quality handset. ;)
Anonymous, 02 Feb 2015Well i experienced dead batteries on other gadgets (2 notebooks and 2 fones) and for me having... moreNo you didn't get me
I don't have iphone 4 ..
I repair phones mostly ip5 ip5s..
What I wanted to say ppl get mobiles on contract for two years and they not bother with some batteries.. after two years they will get new phone and that's it..
If something happens accidents.. water dmg or batt swells .. then ppl want replacement
I only replace batt. when I purchase faulty iphone repair it and will check battery with Battery Life app great app shows me what capacity batt has..
Thing is ppl selling their old phones and always saying in description ; battery is bad or stay last after two years of using etc.. So I buy new batt for fiver.. and all sorted..
It has gorilla glass 4 protection according to corning gorilla glass website.
AnonD-89109, 01 Feb 2015Pearl white finish could be too feminine? What stupid kind of thing is it you mean? I am a ... moreBut isnt a little too feminine and a little less masculine same as debating if a glass is half filled or half empty with water? Nonetheless the build is good, hopefully samsung can adjust the pricing a little better to attract more buyers.
