Hello everyone, pls those of you that are using A5 2016, the model A510FD, does it have backlit Home and back buttons? That is, does the home and back buttons light up when touched?
I'm using A5 2016 with Snapdragon since last year, to be honest this is very great phone with some lacks.
First thing first, the design is well build i meant that amoled in 5'2 display it just perfect in one hand used. Pretty slippery, but not so much.
The primary camera doing great in daylight but not really that good in the low light. The front camera? Not good. I mean, it really do nothing good with all that noise in daylight and blur in low light.
If you like gaming, i suggest dont you ever choose this phone. It may doing good for some light game, but if you play something like Shadow Ninja 2, it simply lag and freeze.
The battery, like most of you comment, it drains too fast from 20% to 0/5% i dont know why, it still new when this happen. But, thanks to super fast charging, it helped.. a bit.
And yep, like all of middle class samsung phone, it lacks of many sensor like gyro etc.
In 2017 the A5 2016 price cut like almost half of the price when it first show up in the market. So, i think its pretty good deal for phone like this. Please, dont compare to Xiaomi price or what so ever.
So, if you ask me should i buy this phone? It depends on how you gonna use it.
I think in term of design.. A 2016 series is more elegant than new A 2017.. but of course spec is far better in A 2017 Series although A 2017 series doesn't have OIS thats not really deal breaker i think.. (sorry my bad english)
Hey guys please help me... I used this device more than 8 months. Everything works perfectly but there is only one problem. When i record video in disco (or somewhere is to loud like bass music etc...) my recorded video is with terrible, no clear audio...
Whats the problem ( android 6.0 last update ) or something else... Please help me if you know . thanks
Delgado, 30 Jan 2017Guys please help, which is better S5 or A5 2016?Definately go for A5 (2016); S5 is now a old device. I doubt it will get any update or not.

As for A5, as I have said it is also a better reliable device than similar products. My father is using it for last few months and he is very happy with it. I also like it very much. But i choose J7 because of the 5.5 inch screen, 3 GB RAM, bigger battery and black colour variant. Anyway I believe every Samsung galaxy device is a good choice depending upon your budget. Read that in US 76000 people did not return their Galaxy S7 Note as they consider it more than a device. You will not believe it that currently I use another Galaxy On7 pro also with the J7 Prime. And my father is enjoying his retirement days with the A5 and a J Max. Overall I was a desktop guy untill I bought a S7392 a few years back and since I am a heavy user of Galaxy devices. My ultimate goal is to own a Note and Edge device in near future. regards and respect.
Diamond, 27 Jan 2017Hi Guys please tell me which smartphone is better samsung Galaxy A5 2016 or J7prime. Personally I would go with a5 2016 regarding the performance j7 prime is slightly faster, but after all the difference isnt notable regarding speed. Super amoled screen makes all the difference along with the stylish design.

I know A5 2016 comes in two different variants, one with snapdragon chipset and other one on exynos chipset. On software, there shouldn't be any diference between the two.
For me, two key points that are on the A5 2016 side are super Amoled display and fast charging. But J7 Prime has its own advantages, it is matter of choice.

Unless you are a previous iPhone user than you should go for a Android device. But if you have Apple ecosystem to support like an iPad, Mac etc than choose iPhone.

J7 prime is same in most countries. Whereas A5 comes with different processor and even OS. Mine has Marshmallow; but some says they got Lollipop. Anyway I still prefer J7 prime over A5. Unless you need a "Super Amoled" display, than J7 Prime is always a better deal in less price tag. Regards.

Hi. I have a choice between this (A5 2016), the Xperia XA and the iPhone SE 16GB... Which is best? I want the iPhone but worry about the storage limitations. Opinions?
Boula, 28 Jan 2017A5 16 is better good phoneI got both of them. Both are good. But I prefer J7 Prime with better design, more RAM, bigger screen, LED indicator and KNOX security feature. Also J7 Prime comes in black colour, where A5 is only gold. Last but not least, J7 has 3300 MaH battery and A5 has 3000 MaH battery. J7 cost 5000/- Indian Rupees than A5 and you can invest those money in better headphone, memory card and a flip cover.
Diamond, 27 Jan 2017Hi Guys please tell me which smartphone is better samsung Galaxy A5 2016 or J7prime. A5 16 is better good phone
AnonD-632732, 15 Jan 2017Basically i love this phone very much. The design is elegant and the feature was awesome. But ... moreYes, I have noticed the same and I really take care to always charge it only when it says connect charger and with its original charger (fast charging), never leave it on charger for longer period than needed - disconnect it on 100% - but still it looks like you described. It can be even noticed that back panel has separated just a little bit around volume up/down buttons. However battery is actually very good and lasts 2 days and more, since I am not a heavy user.
