bought the a5 1 week now and i would say the best phone I have used so far from samsung in terms of battery power. too bad no led notification and otg but the design of the body is very good. screen is awesome and camera is ok. for its price range i say its ok. all in all the phone is superb for everyday use. full metal body is awesome
The design of the phone is beautiful to look at but it is underpowered. They should have put snapdragon 615 instead.
For this I will never forgive samsung.i buyed alpha for 40 and now this a5 if you can give bigger then why not from start you murdered uniqueness of ALPHA ...samsung you lost one of your best customer. ..
saiful bahri, 15 Jan 2015first of all, before you give any unreasonable comments, please keep in mind that this is not ... moredid u install any game like aspalt which can optimize the true of display?
Exactly the same platform as the Redmi 2 for example, but more than twice the price. This is just an example of why is Samsung slipping down faster and faster. 2015 is going to be a very bad year for them if they continue like this. Too many models, too little difference, too expensive.
ofcourse it have to have great battery life because it have snapdragon 410 ! Ok that is great phone but price is not.
Galaxy A5 has awesome battery life , super camera both rear and front ,sleek look and feels so classy to carry it . multi window is the best feature i liked about a5 . thumbs up to the cellphone :)

Anser9, 23 Jan 2015Hey samsung...! What are you doing. Go kill apple. Use kevler or other material instead of pla... moreLOL.Give up with it dude,cause you never use a plastic hammer break aluminum and steel.
The best phone that I have ever seen in this price range thanx Samsung n keep it up
I got white one for my wife. Probably one of the best designed phones fro sammy at last. After using it for 15 days, below is the feedback:
1. No USB OTG.
2. No gorilla glass(I will not care about this, because i applied tempered glass on it)
3. Price should be a concern for some people, but for the support they provide is awesome.
4. No IR
1. Awesome design, feels premium in hand.
2. Tremondous battery life.
3. No lag at all.
4. Excellent rear and front cameras, no doubt about it you will really feel the difference.
I get this mobile on 4 days ago..I would say that it is a great device..looks awesome & feels good in hand.Camera is super super super..I tried many games like asphalt 8,modern combat 5 etc,all runs flawlessy in this device,no heating issue,battery back up is good..Realy A GREAT DEVICE to use..
