Rohan, 27 Nov 2016No Gyro sensor 😢
Can't enjoy VR with A5 2016.. samsung made a big mistake with A5. Hi
Are you sure there's no gyro sensor? How can Samsung sell any of these phones? It's more than Â€300. No gyro means no switching from portrait to landscape and back, etc. It makes no sense on a so-called smartphone in 2016!!!

om , 01 Dec 2016I brought galaxy a5 2016 new phone before 6 Month, the major problem I am facing that is heati... morePlease try the following steps.
1. install latest updates to your phone using only the phone if available
2. During charge do not use the phone and keep off the unused stuff like wifi, mobile data etc.
3. use only the charger provided with phone. Do not try any other charger, it may charge fast, but also cause other major problems.
4. As you have said you feel major heating issues during internet. I suspect something is not good with your phone. May be you have installed an APK file app which is using data behind or some other incompatible apps are constantly getting restart. So, I will suggest
A) Check the battery usage to see which app is using most battery.
B) Uninstall or turn any app which you do not used. i turned off the "Play Music" app as I prefer Samsung Music which has folder option.
C) install a good antivirus app from Play Store like Norton (which has 30 days trial period) or CM antivirus. And scan the phone immediately.
5. Which memory card you are using? I got a Samsung Evo+ 32 (class 10) which works great on my on 7. I advice you should also reformat the memory card before taking the back up.
6. If the problem still persist after above steps, than do a hard reset. I am sure it will solve all the problems.
Anyway, my father uses this device for 45/60 minutes constant on internet/facebook and he never felt any major heating issues. yes, the device heats up little as it has a glass back and metal build. So, I hope if you try those steps, it will decrease the heating issue to minimum level.
I brought galaxy a5 2016 new phone before 6 Month, the major problem I am facing that is heating during charge and using Internet...and battery backup is not satisfactory..so plz help me...

Dave, 24 Nov 2016DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!
* screen cracks in just couple of cm's
* phone's screen gets freezed ... moreI cannot agree with you:
* screen cracks in just couple of cm's
-That's normal, if the phone falls down what do you expect? I have the phone since half year no problem
* phone's screen gets freezed and needs to close and reopen the screen power to make it work again
-No problems, never had this problem. It can happen by application, check ur apps
*extreme touch sensitivity
-Since when thats dissapointment? Thats best thing in the phone (among with everything else) - the screen is sensitive and very easy to operate with, when using other phone if feels like resistive touchscreen. This has like th ebest touchscreen. Very very senstivie, using with gloves with no problems.
*not comfortable screenwise
-The srcreen to body ratio is perfect, screen with curved edges (2.5D)
*hard to watch videos without touching the screen
-Why you are touching the screen while you watch videos?!
-Havent experienced, seems like u have porblem with centrain app
*the phone looks promising but its the other way around
*poooooooooorrrrr identifying touch points or areas on screen.
-The touchscreen is perfect, no problems with that. Im drawing on S Note with no problem.
*so disapointed i bought the phone
* camera is very low in quality
-Camera is verry good quality,13MP OIS in midrage is rarely seen.
* back if phone is made of glass
-You can say the same abt iPhone 4/4S and since when thats problem? Very beuatiful glass.
Hi guys !!! After latest update i have Facebook as app "by the default". It was not the case before update. I had to deactivate Facebook app in the settings...Is anyone facing the same "problem" after latest security update (European model) ??? Thanks :)
To all the users who say p9 lite is cheaper and better. I say this A5 2016 has great design, amazing display, better camera After I Saw a video comparing these 2 devices where p9 lite was supposedly faster with games i went to try p9 lite and did not look like the phone the advertise in here. A5 only sin is that battery life is short even with fast charger it takes about 2 hours to fully charge.
Please help me. I would like to know which phone is better, Samsung Galaxy A5(2016) or Huawei P9 Lite. Very confused.
