Hey GSMArena, please don't foget to check my queries which I asked for
1. Call quality on ear piece(both loudness and clarity)
2. Overheating issues on heavy Games and Apps.
3. Option to store Apps and Games on SD Card.
hey guys (you GSM Arena)..what's taking you so long to make a review for this phone?It came out more then one month ago!
the price of the Samsung Galaxy A5(2016) is soo expensive, I can buy an based model of the s6 with this stupid pricing by Samsung :(
Prolonged delay in availability will make samsung users to switch to Mi 5 ( launching soon )
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2016Does it have a notification light for missed calls etc?No, he doesn't have one .. It's the only thing i'm missing.
Bought this phone a week ago.
It's the best phone ever.
You get everything for $350.
Cost isn't a factor for me. I'm coming from note 5, s6, edge, iPhone 6s, mate s,OPX.
I chose this phone for the legendary battery life and dual sim as I travel a lot.
It's excellent in everything. Best form factor. Beautiful design. Little curved screen. Beautiful in hand. OIS camera. Finger print. Dual sim and SD card.
Feels very premium in hand a lot better than s6. 5.2 inch is the best screen size. Very fast charging. Never heats.
Easily 2 days battery life even fit a very heavy user like me.
Never got back home with less than 50%.
You'll only need screen and back protectors to mitigate slippery glass.
I used leather sticker for back and skinomi screen protector that's anti finger print and anti glare for $12.
Very much recommended.

Mine gets hot too when charging the battery, maybe because of the adaptive fast charger. Try to use a non-fast charger and check if the phone will experience the same. Overall, the phone is amazing and no heating issues when playing games or videos.
A 5.2-inch phone, the Galaxy A5 (2016) is shockingly well made: sturdy metal frame, beautiful glazed glass (Gorilla Glass 4 at that) on the back and front (with pleasingly rounded edges), very compact size with minimal side bezels.
