I have a friend that both this phone. He said to me it is lagging for like 3 seconds like 5 times a day. Is this normal or it happens with all A5? I am still not sure if this phone is worth it. Even that in my country it is not that overpriced.

thanks for you bluntness over misleading perf. I have experienced that with the LG G3 and G4
do not buy this phone.....it LAGS
cpu clock speed dose not have power to operate 1080p display.
buy galaxy a5 2014 it's much faster than this.
Samsung A series just have good looks other than they are full crap.very low performing cpu and gpu. All reviewers have said that Camera is avery dissapointing. Worst of all overpriced. Samsung always fools their customers.

Mali 760 per core 23 gflops maximum
Adreno 405 59.6 gflops
Adreno 510 170 gflops
Adreno 530 588 gflops (beast)
so, even with 4 cores mali 720 cant beat adreno 405.
and i highly doubt a5,a7 pack more than 2 cores.
AnonD-511332, 05 Mar 2016which model sould i choose?the one with snapdragon or the exynos?i dont play heavy games.i am ... moreExynos is better and its is from samsung chipset design good on battery consumption and low heat
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..

AnonD-249431, 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.

Cheong, 06 Mar 2016Even expensive Chinese phones also have the low quality hardware and unstable software if comp... moreHow expensive? 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.
