Thought it was a nice phone but 1 1/2 years and it doesn't charge went back to O2 to be repaired but they said it was water damage despite the fact it hasn't been in any water apparently even if it rains and the phone is in your pocket it can get wet I now think its a waste of time.
Hello1, 19 Sep 2016What is happening? My A500F doesn't getting marshmallow and i don't know whyMine too galaxy a500f not getting mm update
I actually like the phone..over the past week I saw 2 things happening to my phone..1)the full left side of the screen from top to botton was faded and lined up like scratch marks..but the remaining part of the screen was normal...when I restarted the phone it became ok...2)one time when I picked the phone from my pocket to answer a call,the color of the screen was different than normal..when I finished the call the screen went back to normal colour...I have faced only these 2 problem's so far...I bought this phone December last year...so problems at this early stage is making me nervous..
the phone is just great in every thing maybe a little bit bad in battery it stand for almost 4h37 3g use with fulllllllll use non stop 5 to 6 h wifi 9h movies after MMR update the was super cute and lovely and the battery improved the front cam not that good but tha rear one great supreb so the conclusion if you want a great mid range phone for a low price go for A5 2016 if you want a decent mid range phone go for A5 2016 or HTC or sony all are good every phone have cons and pros so the judge here he"s the price budget okey boy good luck girl

anFan, 16 Sep 2016Recently updated my A5 to marshmallow via OTA. After using for 3-4 days, this is my feedback. ... morefactory reset your phone after upgrade....then all your problem will be solved....
Recently updated my A5 to marshmallow via OTA. After using for 3-4 days, this is my feedback.
1. Battery drains faster.
2. Image is clicked after pressing 3-4 times on camera button.
3. Screen response time is below average.
4. Lags a lot.
This happened today.
1. Alarm did not went due to which i reached office late.
2. No ringtone.
3. No volume in the media.
4. WhatsApp video not running.
5. MP3 & MP4 downloaded audio not supported by phone system.
Don't know what have I downloaded via OTA but it has screwed my phone completely. My suggestion is do not update.
Please do let me know if someone else is facing problems after the update.
Was recently given an SM-A500F running Android 5.0.2.
All my contact numbers are all in one long string, meaning the phone numbers are not formatted with any spaces.
Eg. a mobile phone number of "0404 123 123" will save as "0404123123",
or a home phone number of "02 9999 9999" will save as "0299999999".
Any way to get this phone to put the correct spaces on the phone numbers?

I chosen it over galaxy S4 for its premium look and feel , but I shocked when discover that (chrome like ) paint on the bazel gone so quickly , the software have several bugs here and there , music player equalizer not working correctly, Google services ( Gmail, newsstands , etc .. ) not updating you need to update the app manually by opening it , auto brightness sensor don't decreasing brightness until you lay your phone horizontally , if you watching a video while enabling AMOLED cinema mode within stock video player and screen turned or for any reason , the screen color mode change to AMOLED cinema mode and you must to change it again manually , after month of buying it , it get a software update that sized about 300 MB ,the update resolve the syncing problem , but no more , even it bring new buga , the stock dictionary no longer working within apps ( until you launch it from multi window list for example ), vibration feedback ( while placing or replacing shortcut or widget on home screen ) is gone too ...
Surprisingly the galaxy S4 ( yes I know it is faster , but still strange !!! ) gets the music player and browser update ,.. and A5 wouldn't ...Very disappointed
The only thing I really like about the A5 is screen color accuracy , with basic mode colors looks fantastic , very realistic , very accurate , very pleasing , really really beautiful screen ..
Since Samsung prime got lollipop update,We've a chance to get N update,but will have to wait for too long.Believe me Upgrades on Moto phones are better and have much better function
