Xheikh Usman, 04 Feb 2017Hello samsung...i want to tell u that i am using now samsung galaxy a500f 2015 model.....when ... moreIf you want notification colour is white like s6 note 5 and s7.. you can only just download note 5 theme on theme store.. and then you got a new UI with white colour notification..
nice phone, great battery, good performance, not laggish, decent music experience, excellent camera, slim and good looking.
It's about 2yrs old...battery hardly lasts for 4hrs...Any solution?
Hi guys. I'm using Samsung Galaxy A5 for almost 2 years and I have to say that I'm in love with this phone. The only problemd that I currently face is that I have to charge it every single day, as I'm using it a lot - for work and fun. As I can not change just the battery I'm checkig for a new one, but honestly, when I read the comments here, I don't know what to take. I'm a Samsung fan, eventhough I have a couple of Lenovo devices. Please advise if you find some device better than this one. The one that you like better than the Samsung A5, regardless what brand it is.
Thank you all in advance.
Xheikh Usman, 04 Feb 2017Hello samsung...i want to tell u that i am using now samsung galaxy a500f 2015 model.....when ... moreHi .. I had use samsung device with white notification panel , and I tell you it looks good , but not better than current blue one , I think it is fresh looking but no more than that, actually I feel the blue one looks a little better ...
There is some annoying problems after marshmallow .. like lock screen sound effect problem , it became so quite and I find my self compelled to disabling it completely 🙁 , there is more major problem with language, when I set my phone tty I Arabic " which is my mother tongue " , system don't shows battery usage for every app, the battery section is just turn off and shows " 0 " mAh
Vibration feedback is gone if you want to place /or replace an app or widget on the home screen or within app drawer , the amr for soft keys.
There is a syncing problem , actually it not working properly for email , and for some Google app ( play newsstand not refreshing at all ) ..
Battery drains insanely ..
It drops from 100 to 90 after turning on screen after just 20 minutes ( it takes 1 hour and 10 minutes for down to 92 % when it was lollipop ).
My phone got an update a few days ago , it solves the screen blue flickering , and install November security patch ... but unfortunately no more than that ..
I hope Samsung release an update for solving the language problem , and lock screen sound effect ...
I was much happier with this phone before .. I find android 6 better than lollipop specifically in security ...
Touchwiz also on android 6 looks better .. but software problems ruin the experience. .
I have samsung a5 2017. When im scrolling up or down, the screen would shake. Is that normal? Thanks
Rajan, 06 Feb 2017It is very worst than j2, because OTG provision is not included even though it is costly than j2It does you just have to enable it on the Developer Options
