This phone is really good hey, I bought it last year December and I must say it's a good device. The only problem I have is the the body of the phone is not made out of good quality, the body easily gets scratches as compared to other phones in the market and the battery really drains fast even while Power saving mode is turned ON...the other thing is the rear camera I doesn't have the quality of a 13MP, the quality is not good also the selfie camera is not. good unless you configure the beauty features then it becomes great but the rear camera ain't good at all but overall the phone is a great device and I'm quiet surprised that Samsung is still updating the phone because they do not care about updating their phones...the last update I made was a security patch (September), the update after the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

Vamshi, 20 Sep 2016I actually like the phone..over the past week I saw 2 things happening to my phone..1)the full... moreExactly same way faced the fade issue. After restart it was ok. .But why this happening?
What is the surprise, please tell me I bought A5 and upgraded just now
Bought the phone in October 2015. Was good for the 1st few month's but the autocorrelation is very frustrating and two weeks ago the rear camera has become blurred and cannot focus even though the lens is clean. Sometimes when I turn on the phone the screen will have lines coming from the left hand side and other times I will not receive calls and no missed call will come up on the phone. This is too many problems for a 10 month old phone that costed Â€400 to buy. I would not recommend buying any of Samsung's "budget" phones as you are being over charged for a useless phone.
My phone has upgraded to marshallow and I'm having issues. The battery is draining, mobile data works fine out of my home. Some apps aren't working and others won't load. I'm also connected to WiFi but it's not working. 😠
its getting complicated after 6.0.1 update.slightly lagging, heats little bit and play store not working with wify while there is no problem with mobile data and some apps doesn't responding...but 6.0.1 has a nice icon pack.look awesome

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
