Bought this beauty 3 days back from a local shop in Kolkata @27500/- INR.
Initially I was apprehensive about d ringtone volume. But with high volume ringtones its ok.
Very good battery backup (I'm getting 45 -48 hrs with moderate Single SIM use)
Beautiful body (at par with s6 if not better).
Smooth performance till now (inspite of just 2 GB RAM).
RAM shoul have been 3GB considering d price point ( but still better dan 3 GB RAM chinese products )
Camera could have been more improved .
My conclusion : I'm satisfied overall till now am loving it whenever am holding it. friends its good choice. Looking a bit costlier consideringavailability of chinese products (Gionee, One+, ..) @cheaper rate n apparently with higher specifications.But Samsung has quality hardware n very good service backup which these chinese brands can only dream to achieve. So its a good choice for peace of mind.
I want this phone so badly..this will be my first samsung phone if ever i would purchase this..pls still do convnce me to buy such gadget..thank you..

Samar8, 06 Mar 2016It is mali 720mp2 , take a look at specs page. Meizu M2 Note also has 1080p screen and Mali-T720MP3 GPU but it scores lower at at both onscreen and ofscreen GPU benchmarks. It might even be MP4.

Actually all the Chinese phones are much cheaper than Samsung's S and Note series in China. For instance, Mate 8 (3G+32G) is 3199RMB, Vivo Xplay5 is 3699RMB, and Note 5 is around 5000RMB, but they are about the same price in some European countries. It is because Samsung is more common and Huawei is rare in these countries. Actually Huawei is aiming a much lower end market than Samsung.
BTW, A9 is 3199RMB, the same price as Mate 8, and A7 (2016) is 2600RMB.

The system takes a whooping 1GB already. If you free up ram using smart manager you will get 500-600 free. Anyway it will just shut down some of the background apps and it will restart again later on you will have alteast 200-300mb free ram only lol

Samar8, 05 Mar 2016That mali 720mp2 is inferior to adreno 405. Atleast S650 is needed for that price. Insane pricing.Galaxy A5 (2016) has Mali-T720MP3 and it performs same as Adreno 405.
