*looks and feel: 5/5
Looks awesome ..
Definitely makes you feel out of crowd
*Camera : 3.5/5
Quality of rear camera is awesome ..
Focusing is bad
Front camera is good but it could have been better ..
*Basic Features : (audio quality, cellular quality ,net browsing, touch sensivity, battery backup ) : 5/5
Everything is perfect
*Performance : 3.5/5
Performance is good ..
Multi tasking is good ..
Installed 4-5 games like colour switch, zombie age , train simulator 2 etc runs smoothly
But there is little lagginess in software ..
Sometime apps get forced stop like
'Unfortunately this app have been stopped'
*My overall rating 4/5 for the price point
Now some pros and cons:
1. Awesome looks
2. Good camera
3. Fast charging
4. Awesome battery backup
5. Superb audio quality and sound
6. Dual sim with dedicated memory card slot
* cons :
1. Little slippery
2. Overheats while fast charging (thats normal)
3. Questionable performance at this price range
4. Tempered glass doesn't fit the screen properly
5. Only 16gb memory and 2 gb ram (only 500 mb ram available while multi tasking )
6. Mediocre Chipset
My opinion : if you are moderate user BLINDLY go for it.
AnonD-30727, 12 Jul 2016Location doesn't matter. The only thing matters is the origin of your handset. If it's A510F, ... morethank you so very much. mine is FD brought from SS Cafe Dhaka made in Vietnam.
Pillow, 11 Jul 2016Was a good phone until now... I am having issues with my A5 2016 (SM-A510FD from UAE) after up... moreProblem solved.
I sent an email to Samsung but their answer didn't help. I investigated by myself and at first I realized that the problem was present only if I had my two SIM cards inserted at the same time. Finally the problem was due to the use of a PIN on one of the two SIM cards. Without any PIN on the SIM cards everything is fine.
I don't understand why it used to worked with 5.1.1 but not anymore with 6.0.1, also I don't understand why there is the option of using a PIN code if it makes the phone bug...
Hello! For A5 (2016) purchased from Vodafone Romania, someone received the update for Android 6 these days?
zubaerjewel, 12 Jul 2016i am from Bangladesh & a user of A5 (6). how can i upgrade my A5 (6) to MM.Location doesn't matter. The only thing matters is the origin of your handset. If it's A510F, then the MM update is already there if you check for updates manually. Can't say about A510FD (Asian Edition). So, you can always check for updates from the settings. The update is just over 1GB.
I use the FD edition bought from Germany and updated my handset to MM 6.0.1
Nice review on Samsung Galaxy A5 2016. I was actually looking for a smartphone. Have shortlisted this mobile phone. Have seen many other price comparisons websites like Yupple price, pricedekho, smartprix etc. but this review made my mind much clearer. Thank You GSMArena.

Saif, 10 Jul 2016Hi everyone. I bought this phone SM A5100FD one week ago from dhaka bangladesh. So far overall... moreThis amount of heat is very normal on present Samsung handsets if you want to charge your handset fast. Galaxy S7 is overheat more than Galaxy A5 (2016). There are some other reasons that make your phone overheat like using cover or back-part, playing too much games, using camera & mobile data for a long time or even a hot environment etc. Avoid those activity as much as possible. Your phone will be fine.
Regarding your question; If you charge the phone via normal charger the phone will not get heat that much compared to charge it via fast charger. But if you want to charge it through fast charger, plug your fast charger in your Stabilizer/UPS or any type of voltage equalizer instrument. Hope it'll work a little bit.

The 6.0.1 MM update changed the UI a bit. And added some extra features in settings. The handset doesn't lag. Decent performance. For more details search in Google about the MM features.
