Ethos-Evoss, 01 Feb 2015No I NEVER purchased battery in my life.. why my batt. wud go weak? yeah batteries MOSTLY goes... moreWell i experienced dead batteries on other gadgets (2 notebooks and 2 fones) and for me having that extra battery is really good. U said your fone is iphone 4 upto 5s right? If you check the span of releases of those fones are about a year each. Meaning if you replaced a fone with the next model, you never experienced battery wearing coz u only got the fone 1.5years at max. Unless you used the 4 fones upto now that is.
And besides, all my gadgets batteries started wearing down when they reached 3 years of heavy usage. So basically if i had an extra battery to swap with my fone battery, i could double the lifespan of my fone thus i could save a lot if i dont intend to change my fone or use it as a secondary fone. I got samsung ch@t e222 model 3years ago and my battery still lasts upto 2days. I dont even own an extra battery for it and now i need to buy one coz my battery is failing. But my fone still stands. If my ch@t222 had no replacable battery, i would look like a modern day army radioman with my fone always connected to a powerbank, and the powerbank is even more expensive than my fone. Get my point?
Pearl white finish could be too feminine? What stupid kind of thing is it you mean?
I am a male, and I love both White and Black equally. Try to be a less masculine I suppose?
Only fear to purchase is samsung phones rates are very high in starting then reduces after
The back cover is ugly. and for the money, you can buy oneplus one, xperia z ultra, or if you don't mind, 2nd hand LG G2, Galaxy Note 3.
with such low specs and high price.. i keep looking at the other side..

Ethos-Evoss, 31 Jan 2015Why would you replace? How you want upgrade? If the battery is replacable, sammy would sell accessories of the phone (battery). so if ever your battery becomes weak due to repeated usage you can just change it and the fone is like brand new.

TAIMAT, 31 Jan 2015replaceable .. upgradeableWhy would you replace?
How you want upgrade?
Muthu, 31 Jan 2015I thought he had a point. When apple iphone 6 was reviewed, it was blasted left, right, center... moreIts because iphone6 is a flagship fone with lower-middle midrange fone specs priced as a high range fone. Galaxy A5 isnt even the best model of the A series and it is priced as an upper midrange fone with middle midrange specs. See the difference? A5 is worthy of its classification but iphone6 cmon man the specs isnt worthy of the word "flagship"
Ethos-Evoss, 31 Jan 2015removable battery is a must ..??!?!? PLease explain .. WHY ?replaceable .. upgradeable
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2015I dont understand. How do you want the price to performance ratio be presented? "OMG WTF ... moreI thought he had a point. When apple iphone 6 was reviewed, it was blasted left, right, center for being expensive still not providing comparable specs (display resolution, camera, battery etc). When Samsung does the same with A5, the criticism is very mild. I am not an apple fanboy or sammy fanboy. But to me, A5 deserves more criticism than iphone 6 (considering the state samsung finds itself it, due to exactly devices like this). But this device gets all praise and very little criticism. Looks to me double standards.
this is waay too expensive. I just saw the sim free price for the alpha too, in a career store. Guess what: 435 euros for a 2012 phone
