So I having this phone more than one year, bought March 2015. Till now still working. Pros including super slim body with metalli design, amoled display, good camera when it is sufficient lights. But since it is getting old, facing some lag problem and over heating problem, has to charge few times a day. The speaker is not good and not on the list of getting marshmallow. Disappointed. It's considered as a average phone and suitable for people doesn't need sophisticated functions.

When is the marshmallow update coming on the A5 or at least the 5.1.1 lollipop? Samsung can't be serious about giving us just one update from kitkat to 5.0.2 lollipop which came out at the beginning of the year ...I know on a website it said it got a wifi certification and at the Samsung website they updated the manual to marshmallow but that doesn't help if The update doesn't show on my phone, instead it says "up to date" ...anyone with the latest news about the marshmallow for this A5
rahul.521135, 27 Jul 2016Samsung A5 or moto g4 plus....? If u need fingerprint go Moto
I bought it last year.
The metal body is really light and fun to take in hand (it's not scratchy).
Then screen and usability
What I noticed is that it's a one-hand-usable phone and 5 inches never feels small (good enough for texting and playing)
The colors are real (display is near perfection)
The phones only slows down when it's under 9% , while playing 3d games there is no real problem
Camera is more than good : friends with iphones says that it takes great photos (both cameras) (friends have iphone 5 and 6s)
Autonomy depends on your using : during a work days 8 hours with mobile data on (it drains battery) and 10 while off
While playing games and using Chrome not more than 3 or 4 hours
One regret : no figerprint but it's not a big matter at that price tag
I'm changing it next year and can't decide between note 7 / iphone 7+ / lg v11(v20)
Same here, My next phone will be huawei cause it is more durable and cheaper.
The LCD in my a5 got black 1month after purchase, then the samsung said that it is not covered by warranty. The repair fee was 75% of the price of the phone, the phone cost me 9990 and repair fee costs 7500.
