Not worth it's price!
Have the phone for 2.5 years and these are the problems that I had and I still have:
- WIFI disconnects
- people that call hear their own voices but not mine
- ringtone at maximum and i can't hear it while on the street (no hearing problems)
- latest problem, the battery started swelling up and it's pushing on the screen, making it detach from the case
The phone was used average, few calls a day, no gaming, no Facebook and little web surfing.
Apolodor, 17 Sep 2017Guys, keep dreaming. Snapdragon 410 with 4.4 kitkat android and touchwiz ( before s6 era) can ... moreI think it could have most features. It certainly can handle it, and recently they did change their minds about the ''Terminal OS upgrade'' mentality, where even the ''last'' major update bring along the new UX (S6-era devices got the Grace UX, J5-76 got Samsung Experience 8.1, J36 and Tab A 2015 got 7.1.1 and Samsung Experience 8.5, the Note 8 version)
Guys, keep dreaming. Snapdragon 410 with 4.4 kitkat android and touchwiz ( before s6 era) can handle nougat? Ok, it can handle, but it will have almost zero features from s8, s7 nougat.
And seriously flagship users like me when they sticked to alpha were confident that alpha will get 6.0. Well, it hasn't even got 5.1.1 lollipop. So for samsung phones that sold very well they can probably make support 3 years. But like I said, it will have 1 or 2 features from nougat.
A5 2016 doesn't have blue light filter..., screen resolution, almost nothing from s7 or s8.
Anonymous, 11 Sep 2017This phone is not compatible with nougat so don't wait for iteven A3 6 has got a nougay update

Where I live this is sold for 250Â€ but will be 200Â€ for only a few days, is it worth it or should i look for another model?
Nikhat , 23 Aug 2017how can I update 7.0? People have not updated to 7.0 yet.
Correction: I wanted to say that the custom ROM is the best, not the phone :) The phone itself with the factory ROM was unusable for me unfortunately.
A5 has drop the ball when it comes to a green light flash for text notification and a blue light flash for facebook notification on the front of the phone my s4 was far superior ..not happy A5 blows just on this feature alone...
No Nougat update for this one:
