It has the most horrible mobile GPU can't even play FULL HD movies smoothly... total waste of money.. no led. . always low signal strength.... worst speaker quality...and the screen does tend to catch scratches ..
Guys, it's a mid-range device. If you want high-end features, go buy a high-end device. Simple as that.
So I've been using this phone for more than 2 months now and tbh, I've played some high-end games like MC5 etc and it never disappointed. Though it ofcourse drains a bit faster than normal usage when gaming, but giving you full performance, what do one care then? As for the speaker sound, it is pretty loud. I'm a 24/7 user and on 24/7 wifi, except high-end games, it's battery lasts out 25 hours or so, which might be increased using Ultra Power Saving. I'm not someone who prefer samsung but believe me, in this price, it has lasted an impression!
So far so good using it for 3 months it's a nice phone.. am happy to buy it..
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2015That what exactly I thought when I first saw the galaxy alpha. Was about to buy it until I see... moreI deliberately bought a thicker soft case to enhance the grip, the phone is too thin, making it feel slippery & difficult to pick up from table when laying flat, especially for man.

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2015I was going to buy it until I saw it in person. It looks like a plastic toy. That what exactly I thought when I first saw the galaxy alpha. Was about to buy it until I seen it in person. It look a lot bigger and tougher on paper and internet. When I saw it I realized how small and thin it is. It looked too fragile. Galaxy A5 give the same impression too. It look like it going to slip of my hand easily. If kids play with it they probably going to break it apart immediately.
everything is so much perfect except the speaker sound ... Bt i think its one of the best performer of samsung in terms of performance, cam, battry, display etc ... One thing dissapoints ,me is the speaker sound, what is ur opinion guys abt the speaker ?? Plz comment
Total waste of $300 for this phone, No USB OTG, Slow GPS locking, No LED notification light, low volume speaker, bad reception, very easy scratch back cover, Camera no image stabiliser, regret I bought it, Samsung quality drop like a rock.
My other $200 China brand phone is better than this.
guys i just bought samsung galaxy a5 black color today ... Everything is awesome ... Bt the speaker sound is too low .. I cant hear alarm or ring tone that much ... Whats ur comment abt it? Is thr any way to fix it?
Contrary to the listed software being able to be upgraded to Android Lolipop, it is truly not the case with all models of the A5. The A500FU is starting to have some rolling out, while the A500F is as of the date of this writing, unavailable.

just bought 4 days before,
everything is very good, battery, camera, sound, etc.,
suggest to go for this device
wwe, 13 Jun 2015galaxy A5 ?? OR lumia 1020 ??? pls...answer me.hi! i just bought my A5[silver] and kind of love it, pretty much affordable given the specs for a mid-range and pretty slim and as for the nokia 1020- the camera of that phone is real good given that its a 41 MP Carl Zeiss but then its a windows phone. its up to you whether you'll choose an android/windows phone.
