Owesome phone in budget...
Battery life is better...
Camera also better....
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2018My eyes care.That was a sarcasm, you know in 2018, 300 (or 250) euros and HD+..
Then again, S8, maybe is little older, but that last year flagship have way better resolution than HD+ (if you set) and for similar price. If is a Samsung branding a must have on phone.
Even S9 is 400-450 euros only, now.
This is a good low end device for 2018, just price is maybe to high (150-180 euros is more apeling).

In the US this is possible because lots of high end phones are sold through carriers and rebates are still a thing, you can pick mint shape iPhone 7 for 350 USD or a mint shape S8 for around 400.
No way I'd recommend an S7 these days. Most of these phones have a tired battery (unless you purchase a new one, which won't be that cheap after all) and are nearing the end of the road for updates. I'd gladky pick an A5 or A7 from last year or maybe a regular A8 though, those enjoy great SW support from Samsung and are not that expensive anymore. Of course there are lots of value priced options from other brands that are worth looking for
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2018Anyone jump to the battery life page first in every review?Me
Is not that bad phone, design is also ok, here is 240 euros, but i agree, for less there are better phones (ex. Note 5 al, 5 Plus, Mate 10 lite etc), but than again this is SAMSUNG, and have that famous Super Amoled screen, who cares it's only 720p +, right?
Gandalfdenvite, 18 Jun 20185.6-inch but only 720p, that is not ok!samsung hd+ better than others company fhd......
samsung always delivers best in class models
To be honest, I'll buy the Mate 10 Lite (aka Nova 2i) for it's better SoC, display resolution, quad cameras, and more sensible fingerprint scanner.
Only Sammy Fanboys will like to upgrade this product even if it's powered by a 2 year old Exynos 7870.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2018This price for these spec is jokeIt would be great if it were, sadly, lots of people will buy it blindly just because if its brand,.. and then who knows now many companies will buy it for their staff because of contracts.... sure there's a more overpriced brand than apple, selling to a lot more people worldwide.
Just wondering what the use of A serious of Samsung since the S7/S7 Plus S8/S8 plus and even S9 comes with lot better hardware and camera and affordable price?! Plus iPhone 7/7 Plus and iPhone 8 is cheap now no body buy this crap.
I think I know what Samsung‘s strategy is:
The J5 becomes the A6
The A5 becomes the A8
They move up with the numbers and letters to make people think the phone is of much higher quality and status in samsung‘s Range than it actually is. They also did this with their entry 4K TVs this year, for example the 2016 KU6079 was followed by the MU6179 and the NU7179 this year.
In America, the MU6300 became the NU7100.
Hey GSMArena, You forgot to put star rating for this phone.
I agree with the reviewer...
underpower CPU & GPU.
This A series supposed to be good.
Samsung really needs to update their mid-range CPU, or they better to use Qualcom CPU.
One of the overpriced and worst smartphone on the 2018 market. I have no clue what comes in samsung mind with this thing. I would never recommend this phone, because there are much better out there with less price!
