Believe me guys Samsung Galaxy A5 is the best smart phone available in the market after update, Only care must be taken during the update.
No Competition for this phone at the price of Rs.18000 in the market.
It has got decent camera,decent battery backup,nice feel,slim fit,AMOLED display,gorilla glass 4,light weight,very low SAR value, and also the additional improvements stated above with the latest Android version.
Please don't listen to the rumors and fake reviews like Samsung phone hangs a lot, its got cheap plastics, poor battery backup.....etc. Samsung has drastically improved the software and hardware now and don't forget its the giant in the smartphone market. No more lags no more hangs no more cheap plastic design. Also Samsung has lower SAR values than all other brands.
Best of SAMSUNG smartphones available in the market right now.

i would like to bye a new mob ,,,,,,but i still haw confuse samsung A5 single sim or duos
wich one best
haw about the battery life
haw is the speed
Unbelievable Samsung doesn't put a notification led in a phone this grade. Extremely disappointed with this!
Also, the sim2 / SD card is a hybrid slot. I thought this was an electric limitation, but no! They're just being lazy / stupidly economical on saving work for a 3rd slot. Shame...
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2015Should I update my a5 to lollipop or not. No positive difference. Some cosmetic changes, but I would prefer having the older interface.
AnonD-458916, 24 Oct 2015How is the battery backup bro???i think its more or less same after lollipop i dont see any changes
