gogo, 29 May 2015A5 for sure. Much better phone and now on Lollipop...It's already on lollipop?
I brought this phone yesterday. This phone is really superb. & most of all this phone body is metal..
This phone is good enough considering its price.
The looks of the phone is really good far from the typical samsung phone like and feeling.I know this since i'm a samsung phone user since the smartphone war began.
The sound is not that bad either unlike most of the comments saying that it is too low for my opinion its just covering the speaker at the back of the phone greatly affect its volume.
The battery setting for power saving is also noticeably good .
The only problem i have encountered about this phone is the Sim Tray. Since i'm working abroad i change Sim card frequently but the last time i change my sim card the sim tray suddenly got stuck and i can't pull it out using the Sim Tool Kit.
Which makes me force to buy another phone while i'm abroad.
Also a reminder to all the A Series users out the to never use Toothpick or other Tools aside to the Sim Tool Kit provided by the Samsung. There was a common case when laziness strikes in then using the Toothpick until it breaks then got stuck at the hole use for ejecting the Sim Tray. As i said just a reminder as this is already a common case.
I'll rate this phone 7 out of 10.
why can't i use micro usb otg at a5 ?
how can i root to use otg ?
give me any advice..

I bought the new Samsung Galaxy A5 on May 2015. I shut down it. But when I tried to reopen it remained on the first interface which shows "Samsung" and don't continue on application interface. Even I tried to open after finishing the power but still it remains on 'Samsung" page.

That is still consider cool enough of a temperature. Celsius? That would be impossible, I won't believe it one bit. No smartphone can survive above 45 degree celsius. You boiled your phone or something? Please stop trolling with the same story over and over again. I have read this before.

And by the amount of problems and ridiculous claims you have made about the phone, I am only hoping that you have gotten a defective unit and are not trolling the comment section.
I bought this phone on 13th Apr'15. Front camera images were blurred, rear camera colour reproduction was pathetic. A pink shirt looked like grey. Frequent signal drop. I returned this phone and the service representative informed that there is display problem and they would change the dis play. It was hardly a week old and I insisted for a replacement. New sevice was delivered on 5th May'15 and the didn't provide a standby phone. I got a 4G sim from my service provider. Though, there is network signal if someone calls me, it would give them a message that the phone is switched off. I'm able to make calls but unable to receive at times. This phone has an entry level processor which cannot handle even single simple application. Memory management is poor. Always, 80-85% of memory usage and the applications shut off suddenly. Device hangs frequently. After browsing for 10-15 minutes, the phone over heats to 72 degree, which is unbearable temperature if you want to make calls. They claim that the RAM is 2GB but only 1.85GB is available. Sim 2 slot can either be used for second sim or for memory and not both at the same time. They call it as hybrid sim slot which is utter useless feature. Low light rear camera images are full of noise. Front camera automatically uses beautification even in normal mode so that your face looks like a status made up of Plaster of Paris. No skin tone, texture...It is quite artificial. Battery drains faster and doesn't last for more than half day for an averge user. A few good thing about the phone is its 125g, 6.7mm thin and the super AMOLED display. You can buy two other brand phones in the price of this phone with the same specifications. Motion & gesture features are already available in low cost Samsung phones. Samsung Galaxy Apps, Samsung Link, Briefing, Flip board, Ant+, Sound Alive, Weather, Drop box, Google Circles and many applications run in the background by default. There are unwanted apps pre-pre - installed which is the major cause for the sluggish performance. I'm completely disappointed with this product. Samsung promised cashback for this product but it was not credited yet.
