could have been a perfect midrange phone except its just android lollipop not marshmallow
Only concern is just 2 gb ram for display and procesor.. is it sufficient? if phone lags or its fine?? Actual users plz tell.. thanks!
I bought this phone this January 29th of 2016 here in the Philippines... It updated through wifi and I dont know what happened next but I am having wifi problems. I went to samsung to have it fixed they reinstall something that erased all my stuff and wifi is up but in few hours wifi problem is back. I went back to samsung and they reprogrammed my phone and wifi is up again but few hours wifi problem is back... its turning off and on and sometimes its never turning on... I dont know why samsung cannot fix this... im tired of coming back and backing up files...

Today I bought Samsung A5 ( 2016 ).Will tell u review about above mentioned device later on my Review.
I am always a Samsung & Sony fan.I was a big fan of xperia lineup because of the unique design of zero & camera & water resistant. But now it's pretty boring for me.
Samsung fan because of Display & features.
But was disappointed with the design of previous flagship made by Samsung.
From last year Samsung introduced A line up with metal body & s series with unique edge factor & metal body.
I used Last year almost all the high end phone made by Samsung like A5 A7 A8 Note4 Note Edge S6 & S6 Edge.
I was totally impressed by S6 Edge & All the rest of the devices I mentioned.A little bit disappointed with the heavy note 4 & it's material.but performance wise every phone was brilliant.
Now this year Samsung launched A5 A7.Today I bought Samsung A5 (2016).
Packaging wise a new print on the box
Accessories are same like previous.UK can get a fast charger along with USB cable & standard headphone.
At first when u hold it up will feel it is S6 or note 5 etc etc like any flagship
Metal & glass all over.Its a real premium feel.
Display one word finest
Sometimes u will feel it's 2k display
2gb r I feel it's less if I go with the price tag
Camera is as good as previous
Fingerprint sensor response much faster than previous.
I felt sad when I saw the 3rd rendering on new A5 it's laggy.
Battery back up is good above average
I disappointed with the price tag .it can be under 25000INR
Anyway but overall I can say it's a stylish phone with pretty good specs
Expectation was pretty high with new A5
U can buy it if u can afford extra 3 to 4 thousands INR
Out of 10 I can give 7.5
is there marshmallow update? pls samsung update now...? dont make me disappoint....
I just bought my Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 edition with A510Y/DS variant. I love this phone!
- It has nice camera
- Beautiful themes
- No lags (I used to open 6-7 apps)
- Very fast 4G internet
- Awesome display
So far this phone is all good. I hope we can update the OS to Marshmallow soon.
I have bought Samsung a5 2016 2 day ago and it get hanging and freezing same day.i really feel i have waste my money
wyrm, 12 Mar 2016Is it snapdragon or exynos chipset of a5 2016 was sold here in the Philippines?Its SM-A510Y with Exynos here in Philippines.
I doubt about this phone when i saw the speck but i keep buying this phone, compare with my previous i phone 5s and lenovo vibe shot this phone beats those 2, brilliant display, fast charging and the battery performance is outstanding full days without recharge, really great to have this phone
With this price, better go with Xiaomi Mi Note Pro or Mi5. Much better performance with that price. You get more for your money.
Samsung A5 , having dedicated Micro-Sim Slot or its using Sim2 slot ?
If its dedicated then its better otherwise second sim/ microsd card is useless.
george.Oman, 11 Mar 2016Is this A5-2016 model really worth buying since many say 2GB ram is not really sufficient. Pls... moreI am using this for 2 weeks and it's worth the money i paid. 2GB RAM may seem low but it is more than enough. There no lags and stutters so far. Screen is excellent and both back and front cameras are better than iPhone 6.
