J SURESH, 11 Feb 2016optional dual sim is not correct in Indonesia, we get the A5 (2016) with Exynos 1.6 Octacore and Dual Sim + SD Card (2nd sim slot is on the top), and its almost $150 cheaper than Galaxy S6. so its a good deal for high-mid range phone with dualsim, fingerprint reader, and great battery life...
reasons why i wont buy the A5 2016
1. its sensors are not complete it lacks a gyroscope and compass. next time you try to see the direction using a compass or taking a photosphere then think twice becuase your a5 doesnt have the necessary sensors
2. it doesnt have marshmallow think about it you will always be one version behind by the time marshmallow comes to A5(2016) everyone is talking about android n
3.its too pricy for the specs fhd screen and snapdragon 600 series processor is just not 400 dollars. minimum here should be snapdragon 808
4. you can get the s6 for 500 dollars
4. my galaxy e7 is still working well and likely to do so untill 2018

Using for 5 days I can say the battery are the best I love it.run smooth but has only 2 gb ram.about the camera my sister huawei g8 have better front and rear camera but it's okay because I like the battery.the cost is little bit pricey
After seeing full specification, i can say this phone does not worth price of 30k in India...
For 30 k, it must provide 4k video recording...QHD display...
but what you are getting... 13mp fhd , only exciting features are fingerprint id and samsung pay...
and same with the Galaxy a7(2016)
Better go for LG Nexux 5x.....
Else by increasing your budget u will get flagship galaxy s6....

i want to buy this phone, however people who are selling it in the store want to charge me for the installation of antivirus. previously I used iphone and there was no antivirus needed. What's that? can someone explain?
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2016There is no model Galaxy A5 2016 with a single SIM slot. You can use second SIM slot as microS... moreSamsung claims there are single sim models, at least the one for LATAM region is single sim:
It could be a software restriction though, since the slots in the manual looks the same.
I recently bought Samsung Galaxy A5(2016) in Pakistan. I bought it in PKR 43,000/- (around USD 410). It's an Exynos Processor Phone.
After two weeks of usage I found it is the best phone ever. It's battery life is superb, I can easily use it for two days with single sim + Wifi or 3G on normal usage in single cycle. With dual sim with 4G or Wifi its battery life is 1.5 days.
Every thing performance wise is smooth.
Sound and call quality is nice but not the best.
Camera quality is good enough.
Finger print sensor is fast enough.
Day light visibility is clearer than iPhone 6.
Build quality is good, but it would be more nicer if they provide completely metalic body.
I can recharge by mobile in 1 hour from 30% to 100%
Only one issue I found in it is sometimes it gets heat-up during fast-charging, theatering and long calls.
Overall Excellent product after a long time in mid to high range by Samsung.
