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.

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.
First I wanted a iPhone 6s plus, than I understood that I don't want to pay that much for a phone, and this - Samsung A5 (2016) -, is so damn good. It feels like 800 euro phone. It has got a lot of features from high end phone and doesn't cost that much. Can't wait to get that phone.
Any body who have brought it....please share your experience......with us.....
I just bought my new phone 2 days ago @ Samsung Aura Premiere PH. Is it normal when everytime i charge my Samsung Galaxy a5 2016, its getting hot?

oneplus brand is killer android phone to its kind(other android phones)
AnonD-490324, 26 Jan 2016Details, details. This is not a dealbreaker for some but for me it is. I wanted the gold col... moreYeah black front for gold color...deal breaker.
Speaker at the bottom like S6 but very quiet...S6 is much much louder, love that.
Waiting to see what S7 will bring new, but will probably keep my S6 for another year or more.
Details, details. This is not a dealbreaker for some but for me it is. I wanted the gold colored A5 (2016). Its only gold in the back and black in the front. Since we see the front all the time, this is not something I can forget about.
Except for the black front, the phone looks like the S6.
Good news is the speaker is now at the bottom unlike last year's model which was at the back.
There continues to be FM radio :)
