This phone is amazing. I have it a week now. First of all am seeing people saying that the fingerprint and I don't understand it as to me it couldn't have been faster. The design is beautiful. But I have an objection. The companies should stop loading the phones with pre installed apps. The ram could have been better but I haven't encountered any lags yet ( I'm not a gamer btw ). The camera is beautiful and I am very picky when it comes to this. For its price it's a very very good mobile.
In my country, a8 and a5 2016 cost almost the same, so which should i buy it?
Anonymous, 03 May 2016The both cost 400Â€ in my country and the a5 comes with the exynos chipset. I think that alpha... moreAlpha is already running Lollipop and after Marshmallow, it won't get any updates. But A5 2016 will get Android N and Galaxy Alpha's battery life is not good.
In favor: Possibility of rooting, screen, very fast response (rooted and without bloatware), 2GB RAM, FM Radio, LTE, fast charging, 1 and 1/2 day of normal use without recharge, very good price/specs relationship, flat design.
Cons: Difficult to extract (and change) battery, low 3D rendering performance, some heating, low volume of sound (if you don't tweak it), SIM and microSD introduction system.
Conclusion: AWESOME cellphone IF you know what you're buying and you take control of the system by rooting it and stopping the bloatware.
Anonymous, 03 May 2016You should probably go for the A5The both cost 400Â€ in my country and the a5 comes with the exynos chipset. I think that alpha is all in all a better phone, it has better chipset, better camera, heart rate sensor(even thought i don't really need one) and you could see that in the review, it says that a5 a lower segment than alpha so i don't really know
Anonymous, 03 May 2016Hiiii guys, I want to buy a phone. A5 2016 & S6 edge are my options.I know budgets are n... moreThe battery is worse but not so bad, you can't use the sd card but i suggest you to take it because it's simply a better phone. This is a flagship vs mid-ranger battle.
I want to buy a phone. A5 2016 & S6 edge are my options.I know budgets are not the same. but i need the better one from these two. I would be very thankful if anyone can help.
(i heard that S6 edges battery life is poor. is that true? )
This A5 (6) is amazing
Nice design, very comfortable to hold
Camera is good
This is no doubt one of the best mid ranger with good build quality,stunning full hd oled display etc.But the chipset could have been better like snapdragon 650/652
Rather go for the xiaomi redmi note 3. Same specs but with sd 650, fingerprint senser and notification light!
Is it officialy announced that A5 2016 will get Marshmallow update? Sure?
Bmbazar, 02 May 2016Don't working LED Indicator Light .. That's because it doesn't have an LED indicator. It's a mid-range phone.
