This phone is not as good as I was expected
it is much pricey for its specs
even it is not as premium as I hope ..the metal frame start to loosing its " chrome like " after a few days ..it is very disappointing

hey.. anyone gets marshmallow update in india? please share your experience...
i owned a samsung galaxy a5...i must say this phone has a good build quality...feels premium in the hand...battery life is good...but the thing that bother me is its lollipop update...after updating to lollipop update the phone is not looking well in terms of touchwiz...kitkat is more beautiful...and lollipop hangs a little every time i open an app..so a5 with kitkat version is a better choice...and the sound of the phone is a bit low...
1). Battery drains quick and after software update done, the battery drains even more faster.
2). Screen Display while watching Videos or Pics slightly lacks sharpness. Jst abit noisy.
3). Heat up issue sometimes.
4). Display ppi should be higher or increased.
5). Slot2 can be either used for only one use, Micro SD Memorycard or for a sim2 (optional).

Hi there I bought this phone for about 10 days now
Its design is back to 2013 galaxy S3 but with its premium materials give it some beauty , but I notice that metal frame starting to loose its shine and its " chrome " look which is very strange to do that after a few days specially for a phone like this and it is very disappointing to me , it is not premium as much as I thought .
performance is good enough to run daily tasks smooth enough (I don't play games or run heavy apps ) ,screen produce beautiful colors ,and it is easy to use it under direct sunlight .
Sound throw the earpiece is very good too, the camera is fine but not so good when low light conditions ..
I think that Samsung must to take more care about the quality . . Just a little bit .. cause I don't think that better paint finishing costs more than the metal frame itself .. and I hope they do
The processor could been a bit faster too
culex96, 22 Jun 2016How long does battery last?Usually it can last long about 1 day and a half or 2 days if you are not use a heavy apps like high end graphic games or open many apps...btw it depends on the user
Tagub, 06 Jun 2016My A5(6) gets too much heat while the cellphone is in charge with active Mobile data. One can... moreU have to be careful.the display might break with this overheating..may be a 2mm discontinuation ,and then Samsung puts it under damage(out of warranty) and u Lal have to pay for the repair even if it's within warranty period..(cost7800)..it has happened twice in one year with my phone....fighting a legal battle now
