Very durable phone. Have accidentally dropped it on asphalt on multiple occasions without a protective case but it survived without a scratch. With a protective casing it is undamaged after 2 years of use. I like that when updated this phone can be protected from unwanted shutdown in case it gets stolen. Even mobile data and location can't be turned off while you can remotely see the location of this on a map. This phone is hard to steal and get away with.
The flashlight brightness is adjustable and is enough for navigating in the dark. The flashlight can be turned on from the status bar and without opening with a pin.
Another useful feature is that you can display your name on the lock screen from settings. Therefore if it's lost and found by someone they know whom it belongs to.

I use a nano sim + micro sd card on this phone. Or you can use 2 nano sim without a micro sd card. Reset your phone to factoring settings and install your apps and settings again, you will get more empty space on internal memory too.

Struggles with memory space, I now have less on my phone than when I first got it, and it tells me my storage is really full and the slot for a memory card is just a large sim card slot so I can't put in a memory card cant take photos and can't update any of the apps at all.

Samsung has power saving mode, and when it is disabled i feel the speed.
I dont know why samsung locked this phone at 4 cores while the exynos cpu can perform at 8 cores. After I unlocked the cores, it run faster than ever and the battery life remains the same.
samsung will lose big $$$!!!by not releasing another great midrange small screen phone..mark my words. skipping a3 & a5 is big mistake.
