I'm using a redmi note 2 before and now I've switched to this phone I don't regret. I'm using the redmi note 1 and s3 before switching to redmi note 2.
Reviews for A5 2016 :
Fingerprint works very fast and accurate.
Device is very smooth! A lot smoother than redmi note 1 and note 2.
Battery life is very good! Redmi note 2 has 3000mah and only lasts 4hours Screen on time while a5 2016 has 2900mah and 4hours screen on time still has 60% battery using LTE.
Device is very beautiful and good.
Only con is speaker volume is not very high (still decent).
I would say it's totally worth it!

Anonymous, 22 May 2016Would you guys consider the performance of this phone "smooth'? or is it very laggy as it has ... moreIn my experience with both versions, I have to say that the snapdragon version is slower than the exynos version. This goes for heavy apps,games,etc. I did test the 2 in GTA San Andreas and the Adreno 405 is laggier and slower than the MaliT720MP2 in the Exynos version.(This is proven by countless youtubers that has done this test)[Probably because of a slower processor] Don't be discouraged this is still a very nice phone. I'm just giving you the differences of the 2 versions.
I would still buy the Exynos version if I were you, but overall the snapdragon version isn't bad at all. It's actually very smooth in less intensive apps like Asphalt 8 on high settings
[Snapdragon version is at 1.2ghz and 1.5ghz while Exynos is at 1.6ghz]
(This is all based on my experience, I apologize in advance if anything I have said may contain flaw, but I assure you I have researched well and have tested both versions personally.)
Don17, 22 May 2016guys answer this, my a5 2016 when i charge it, it become hot around 41C, Is that normal guys??????Yes it is. This phone is made of metal which is a good conductor of heat and if your using the snapdragon version its quite normal for it heat up. I have an Oppo F1 and it uses the same snapdragon and is also metal and it also heats up, but if your using the exynos it's still normal. Fast charging does make the phone heat up because the more voltage or amps going in the phone does make it heat up. As long as its still "Ok" for the touch. Your good, but if it heats up to the point its burning your hand or skin then it will most likely blow up like the S4. So far no reports of this phone blowing up, just heating due to fast charging.
(Don't worry it wont blow up I have this phone as well and I used a less voltage charger which makes it slow down charging, but it doesn't heat up as much.)
Tip of my advice, Don't play a heavy game or app while its fast charging.
