S 5, 06 Feb 2015Guys dont buy this phone, spend some more money n buy galaxy s5, with great battery life n goo... moreNot really the same price...A5 is 400$ and S5 is 600$...Of course S5 is better but 50 % more expensive.
There is a problem in this phone that if u insert 2 Sims then you can't use sd card. Bcoz there is 1 slot for 1st sim & in 2nd slot u can insert sd card or 2nd sim. So if u use dual sim then u unable to use sd card.
Guys dont buy this phone, spend some more money n buy galaxy s5, with great battery life n good camera, dont waste yur money on this phone, samsung galaxy s5 is the best phone, with price coming down of s5 soon, n with great features,
Lower specs than Galaxy S4, but higher price. Don't get the ideea, think that Samsung take us as fools.

ghouse, 04 Feb 2015Best ever phone from Samsung A500g rocks Agree....
Alone Lex, 04 Feb 2015Maybe you waste your money on the wrong phone. S5 is better than A5.this is a fast phone..and one of the best looking Samsung phone..test it yourself and see the difference in the beauty of the phone.
I bought it last 3 weeks, I love it very much! The battery life, camera, gaming, premium design, overall usage experience is awesome. But, something bad happend last 2 days - I accidentally dropped it from a bar top to floor. Precisely, it was my wrist bag dropped, and my phone is inside. No stunning spin/bang in the air on the road landing to the floor, a simple and nice one "boom" and the screen was cracked!! I'd applied tempered glass screen protector since day 1 bought it, nothing happen to the tempered glass, but LCD screen underneath still cracked! WTH! The screen fade out slowly from out-tracked color display, none responsive to touch till totally black-out. What a crap!! 2 things learns
1. Expensive tempered glass screen protector - crap! useless in protecting your screen
2. This phone is only fit to phone pampered user who never dropped their phone - I doubt this group of people exists
Anyway, A5 is history to me, to all happy A5 owner in the forum, hope you take good care of it.

I will buy this phone after 3 or 4 months when Samsung reduces the price around 20k Rs.
A5 is a midrange smart phone. alpha and s5 are premium and most of all is not ips its amoled,
