Im using the phone since June 2016, at first there was the heating issue on the battery.. but after updating to marshmallow, there was no heating issue. Games are running smoothly.. and i'm using the for MU Origin, COC, Pokemon etc. The adaptive fast charger is helpful, 45 mins full charge is not bad at all. normally phone died when 5%, quiet normal for the marshmallow update.
I bought mine in MAY 2016 and we are in Nov,,my phone fell down from my drawer to the floor and my phone screen is completely cracked. can it be repaired pls help
i have been using a5 2016 since 9th March 2016. its beauty but recently i have noticed that it shuts down after 15% battery... that is embarassing for me. what should i do?? please help
Most of the games run smooth with this phone, overall the device is fine.But battery life is something that I am not too convinced with, sometimes I charge this phone twice a day with heavy usage
I purchased a new A5 2016 on last Saturday. yesterday night i made full charge and now passed 12 hours without touch my devise. (Means not using any thing. wifi / 3g etc.) Now my phone charge is 56%. Is it ok??.
One more thing that, while charging my phone is overheating which is i never feel with the other phones.
does anyone here still stuck with lollipop? maybe they forget us to update in marshmallow (model: SM-A5100, snapdragon processor)
Huawei P9 Lite cheaper better multitasking, RAM Management and longer battery life. Best. People go for brand instead of performance.
I've had this phone since March and never had issues with it. Battery doesn't drain even though I'm using two sims. I use this mostly for wifi, text messaging, music and Pokemon Go. Never had the need for a powerbank.
Joel Meshach, 20 Nov 2016Hi friends... I am using Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) since march. I love this device very much. ... moreSame goes to me... could it be because of Instagram? Coz Ive seen aside from the brightness that used up my battery, the only app that consumes my battery was Instagram. Is that possible?

Joel Meshach, 20 Nov 2016Hi friends... I am using Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) since march. I love this device very much. ... moreCheck the "battery usage" to know who is draining your battery fast. Also keep shut off GPS, wi-fi, mobile data etc when you are not using or charging the phone. Most important, please do not install lots of unnecessary apps as 1)they eat both RAM and ROM 2)Slow down the device 3)consumes data and 4)risks your devices for hacking etc.
If possible do a factory reset after taking the data back up. I am sure it will solve the battery problem. If the problem still persist than visit the nearest "Samsung Service Centre" today.
Til, 21 Nov 2016Is it true that this phone has heating issues? I am interested in this phone but have heard co... moreOn normal usage like social media or youtube using there is no major heating issues. But yes the device feels little warm after continuous use for around 30 minutes or more. but this is common is every metallic device which has glass back. also the device cool down easily. My father is using it for last few weeks and he has not felt any heating or hanging problem. You can definitely go for it. It is a nice device with a lots of innovative features.
Is it true that this phone has heating issues? I am interested in this phone but have heard complaints about heating and lag. I don't play games much but heavy user of social media apps like YouTube Facebook Sanpchat etc. Any advice on whether to get this phone or no? If no, what other phone would you all recommend instead of this.?

Hi friends... I am using Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) since march. I love this device very much. But now i am facing some problem with the battery. Battery life is very worst now. The SOT is 2 to 2.30 hours. It suddenly offs when battery percentage reaches 40%. What i should do now? When i plug charger it charges from 0%.
I got this phone. AWSOME but there is a problem: I have updated my phone to android Marshmallow 6.0.1. Everything is awsome except one important thing. I experience MUCH LAGS on even some 2d games after updating!! I can suggest you to BUY THIS AWSOME PHONE but DON'T UPDATE THIS PHONE TO ANDROID 6.
